For those who doubt that Sarah Palin (AKA Snowdrift Snookie) is nothing but a two-bit grifter ...

Her PAC, which ostensibly is dedicated to the election of Republicans to Congress, has raised $1.1 million. Of that sum, she has disbursed the grand total of $15 thousand to Republican candidates.

The woman is a fucking cartoon, a pure caricature of an ignorant, money-grubbing rube.

1. She'll eventually disperse another $85,000

and keep the rest as her processing fee.

3. Shhh.

I'd rather GOP donors be swindled than have their money go to GOP candidates.

Finally Sarah does something I approve of!

4. Here are the exact figures from the Anchorage Daily News

Last edited Mon Jul 16, 2012, 04:27 PM - Edit history (1)

http://www.adn.com/2012/07/14/2542731/palins-pac-reports-donations-increase.html

Sarah Palin's political action committee reported a robust increase in money raised during the second quarter of 2012 compared with the first quarter.

According to a filing Friday with the Federal Election Commission, Palin's SarahPAC raised more than $750,000 from April through June and spent more than $579,000.

By contrast, the first-quarter contribution level of about $386,400 was among the lowest reported by the PAC in a quarterly filing. In that quarter, the PAC spent about $418,400.

In the second quarter, $15,000 was given to candidates. No money was given to candidates in the first three months of the year.

Most of the money spent in the second quarter went to operating expenses.





(Emphasis mine. "Operating expenses" is apparently code speak for "Sarah's pocket."

5. Not all of it

 

> is apparently code speak for "Sarah's pocket."

Well, not all. Remember that the "Head Of Polling" is named Trigg, and the "Head Of Opposition Research" is named Bristol, and the "Head Of Policy Writing & Snow Machine Repair" is named Todd, and ....

That is a good one, but for Palin it looks better as "Snowjob Snookie."

12. Grifter.

Nailed it.

Thank you. That is the word I have always used to describe this woman to people I talk politics with. She is a fucking grifter. A two bit con woman, swindler, ignoramus and vacuous loud mouth.

p.s. Snowdrift Snookie....I like that one too.

17. As of this writing she has NOT been invited to the convention, and the teabaggers are pissed!

She has, however secured a hall in Tampa during the time of the GOP convention. Apparently she plans to host some kind of a "Hey, look at me, I'm over here", Sarah-fest.
