Why is Sarah Palin still relevant?

So Sarah Palin is back in the media in full force, taking up media time with her nonsense.  Why?  She does nothing for this country but stir people up on issues she cannot control and has no power to change.  The bus has hit the open road with Sarah and family in tow on the backs of her contributors and they call it a “One Nation Tour”.  Does any one else think she is just using her PAC as a way to travel without having to pay for any of it? 

Well guess what, the arrangement is perfectly legal, campaign-finance experts say. SarahPAC is set up as an unconnected PAC, meaning that the usual restrictions on candidate committees don’t apply. Regular candidate committees, for example, are barred from converting campaign money to personal use. 

So, not only can she use SarahPAC for a family vacation, she could use it for her mortgage payments or anything else she wants.  Associate legal counsel at the Campaign Legal Center, an advocacy group focused on election laws says she can, and she is. does not currently offer any information about how much money has been spent on the tour. It does, however, feature a big green "Donate" button, inviting visitors to help fund Palin's trip across the nation.

She is getting money from people for NOTHING.  She has NO intention of running for president because she knows she cannot win.  She will however take all your money and travel the country saying all the things YOU want to hear so that you'll keep those donations coming!  She said during a visit to the Statue of Liberty that the bus was “our own personal motor home” and that SarahPAC was paying for the trip. Palin told ABC News. “I’m just thinking about America and our foundations and our freedoms and our opportunities.” 

Palin has raised about $400,000 so far this year for SarahPac, and the PAC finished the first quarter of 2010 with more than $900,000 in the bank.

She is using the American people and she does not care.  What freedoms is she talking about?  The freedom to swindle people out of their money.  What opportunities?  The many opportunities she gets for speaking engagements where she gets handsomly paid to tell you things you want to hear.  All the while she is laughing her way to the bank with your money.  So you have to ask yourself, is it worth it to throw your hard earned money at someone who doesn't care about you?    Peace.
