You ran for Vice President-that did not quite work out the way you had hoped.
After that, you became bored running America’s largest, most homogeneous, and easiest to run state.
It’s still a month or so till moose hunting season.
The kids are all back in school-except Bristol, who’s got child care worries of her own.
So how does one fill the time?
You go to see Spike of course!
I’m not sure Spike is thrilled to hear that Sarah Palin is coming to visit-with every thing else he has to think about.
Now why, exactly, would Sarah Palin make her first trip to Asia to Hong Kong?
So she can tell people she’s seen the "real China". That’s rich. Of course she can tell every one "she saw Taiwan from her hotel room "in Central.
Then again, if you really want to be President, maybe its a good idea to meet the people who are going to finance your tax cuts. That of course assumes rich Chinese businessmen are still wanting buy American Treasuries in 2013………….
Maybe she could get a few minutes with Sir Bow Tie-to compare notes on in office buffoonery.
Maybe, when her speechifying is done-she can drop by Hari’s and have a drink with women who are in the same profession as Sarah Palin is now. Professional courtesy and all that. Only Palin gets better paid.
If she really wanted to accomplish something-she would drop by the HSBC building on a Sunday afternoon and get an up close and personal look at the type of capitalism she is defending. The type of people who are employed at a ridiculously low salary by the people she will be addressing. Do you think she even has any idea of the struggles these women go through? I sincerely doubt it. She probably thinks its all their own fault anyway………….
But I’m sure she will get some shopping done-considering her yearly income just went up 400%!
You know the world is really screwed up-when Sarah Palin gets to go to HK-and here I sit in Shopping Mall USA. She should come here-and I should go there, we’ll both enjoy it more.
Still, I’d love to see Spike and Sarah Palin in the same room together. My money’s on Spike.
UPDATE: I guess minus a campaign staff, old Todd is missing more than a couple of things as Saint Sarah pares down the list of money making opportunities. Like the fact that she is speaking to a firm that is:
1) Owned by a lot of Frenchmen: CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets is Asia’s leading, independent brokerage and investment group. The company provides equity broking, capital markets, merger and acquisition, and asset management services to global corporate and institutional clients. CLSA’s major shareholder is France’s Credit Agricole, which merged in 2003 with Credit Lyonnais. CLSA enjoys substantial staff ownership, which contributes to its independent stance and operations. As an independent sub group of Credit Agricole, CLSA provides brokerage and execution services for Asian equities to the bank’s global clients.
2) Supports climate change and cap and trade: CLSA is committed to raising awareness of climate change among the public, investors and regulators and has initiated measures to reduce its own carbon footprint. CLSA issues reports on the environment and CLSA Capital Partners invests into companies that support resource efficiency and environmental technology. CLSA offices throughout Asia are ISO 14001 certified and CLSA has a published environmental policy.
3. Is heavily invested in things she purports not to like: CLSA is a sponsor of the Clinton Global Initiative (‘CGI’) meetings, which bring together global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
So whose palling around with Socialists now?
