High Plains Grifter

I do try to avoid encouraging any attention to her, but this is hard to resist. The only change in Griftzilla's game is the graft just gets more blatant. Of course the rubes who donate only read her tweets and Facebook entries, so they probably don't know Sarah PAC is a fraud.
Sarah Palin’s political action committee raised $388,000 in the first three months of the year, but it spent $418,000 and didn’t give a dime to any candidates — which is the purported purpose of the PAC.

Instead, Sarah PAC spent $255,000 on fundraising and a small team of political consultants that Palin has continued to support even as she receded from the political spotlight during the heat of the GOP presidential primary. It also appears to have spent $19,000 on a video rebutting the HBO film “Game Change.”
That's just for the first three months of this year. Also, too, there's this:
The PAC also paid $4,500 to reserve space at Channelside Bay Mall in Tampa, Fla., near the site of the Republican National Convention, suggesting that Palin plans to have an independent presence at the event separate from the formal proceedings.
I'm guessing they're going to hold book signings to see if they can sell off the remainders of her books at retail. And maybe she'll take a cue from Newt and sell personal photo ops at $50 a pop.

But not to worry, they still have almost a million in the bank and they promise they'll be donating a few bucks to some candidates just as soon as they find any worthy of her priceless endorsement. They should have a few thousand extra left through November -- after expenses. And gosh darn, so maybe she won't run in 2012, but 2016 is just around the corner...
