Bristol Palin’s Form 1099 Is Looking Quite Right!

All I want to know is how can I get a piece of the financial action that Bristol Palin has going on?
The eldest daughter of former Alaska governor and FOX News contributor Sarah Palin is raking in some money for herself and it’s no laughing matter.
In an article on Politico this week, it was revealed that Palin earned $262,500 in 2009 as the spokeswoman for The Candie’s Foundation. That was seven times what they spent on actual teen pregnancy prevention, according to The Huffington Post. In her role, she did media interviews and townhall discussions about the benefits of abstinence for young people. Palin became pregnant at 17 and gave birth to her first child in December 2008.
It was also reported that Palin earned $345,000 for her time on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars last year. And let’s not forget about the reported $30,000 per speech that Palin was set to earn when she signed on with Single Source Speakers in Nashville. Her work with them is also along the lines of abstinence, pro-life and youth issues.
What in the hell am I doing wrong with my life? Talk about taking lemons and making top-shelf liquor out of them!! Do I need to knock someone up really quick? The baby is going to be 16 years old and ole’ Bristol is still going to be milking this abstinence and teen pregnancy train. Whew!
If this isn’t the best example of having well-connected parents, an agent, and a Rolodex to die for, I don’t know WHAT is!!
