EyeOnYou sent us a couple of hot links. The first is about Quitter Dude:
Todd Palin won't be pulling a hard-core winter shift on Alaska's frozen North Slope, home to the richest oil fields in the country -- at least not with energy giant BP.
The husband of former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is no longer employed by BP, the energy company confirmed Thursday evening.
Company spokesman Steve Rinehart said Todd Palin submitted his resignation effective Sept. 18. Todd was a production operator on Alaska's North Slope.
The news comes only a few days after publishing company HarperCollins announced Sarah's memoir, "Going Rogue: An American Life," would be released Nov. 17, several months ahead of schedule, with an initial run of 1.5 million copies.
Sarah Palin's spokeswoman Meg Stapleton couldn't be immediately reached for comment.
Will the Dude continue his irondogging or will he quit that as well?
This quitting thing seems to be catchy. Is Bristol still Candie's abstinence ambassador or has she quit also, too?
The next link leads us to a nice piece of rug-pulling.
Here’s one top Republican Sarah Palin should not be looking to should she run for president in 2012: Steve Schmidt, who was the chief strategist for the 2008 presidential campaign of Senator John McCain of Arizona.
Mr. Schmidt, who was an advocate of choosing Ms. Palin as the Republican vice presidential candidate, had a falling out with her as the campaign lurched to the end. He made clear at a forum this morning that he thought it would be a disaster for Republicans to nominate her in 2012.
“I think she has talents,” Mr. Schmidt said. “My honest view is that she would not be a winning candidate for the Republican Party and in fact were she to be the nominee, we could have a catastrophic result.”
I love it. She has talents and catastrophic in the same sentence. What kind of talent is Schmidt referring to? Speaking? Naah, Hong Kong didn't go very well. She is skilled in dividing, back stabbing and inciting hatred, among other not very becoming talents.
Sarah Palin never had much of a talent for politics, too much hard work!
Well, there's always the Avon lady job selling lipstick, I suppose.
The Palins will have to pull all stops to make her book sell as the whole family is unemployed. Is Quitter Dude going rogue and joining her on a book tour?
Maybe the literary thing is not his cup of tea and he's looking for an offer to promote his own fragrance, "Scent of the Tundra" or "Snow Spice"?
"Catastrophe" is another good name for a Palin fragrance. It has a ring to it.
(Thanks EyeOnYou, good stuff...)
