Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol to join the speakers circuit
LA Times ^ | 5-17-10 | none

Posted on 05/18/2010 8:59:02 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Bristol Palin is joining the speakers circuit and will command between $15,000 and $30,000 for each appearance, Palin family attorney Thomas Van Flein says.

Van Flein confirmed a report by celebrity news website RadarOnline that said the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has signed with Single Source Speakers. He added that her exact fees will depend on factors such as the group she's addressing and what she must do to prepare.

Briston Palin, now 19, was thrust into the spotlight as a pregnant teenager during her mother's unsuccessful vice presidential campaign in 2008. She gave birth to a son, Tripp, and has since spoken about abstinence and the challenges of life as a young, single mother.

She is listed on the speaking group's website as being available for conferences, fundraisers, special events and holidays, as well as women's, youth, abstinence and "pro-life" programs.

Her fee is denoted by four question marks, meaning,"Call to discuss!" The same designation is given to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

Not a bad salary for a 19 yr old HS graduate

Each speech is about a year’s salary for a preschool aide or teacher

But somehow I don’t think I’d care to listen to her talk about “abstinence” while cuddling her beautiful son and being flown and chauffered around the nation

Sorry Sarah!

Why would anyone pay to hear what a 19yo has to say? All anyone will be listening to, is what the script says.

Maybe it is just me.

But if my mom were in politics, possibly running for President. I would stay under the radar screen, get an education and work hard at whatever I wanted to be.. and have my own life..

I guess she needs to get a job due to the fact that her babies father’s career as a porn star crashed.

I guess we can assume that “Daddy” will be taking her to court for support for his lack luster working record.

Maybe like Judge Judy says, “Get your lazy butt off the sofa and collect soda cans”.

Her babies father is nothing but a lazy bum who will never amount to anything.

True.

As in a few weeks ago when she went clubbing in New York.

The tabloids had a field day.

Somehow I don't think that her experience as a single teen-age mother is going to be very relevant to the average American teen-age mother.

And any unwed teen-age mother preaching abstinence is am effing joke.

Good money in the Palin brand though.

Neglecting birth control on one occasion apparently.

command between $15,000 and $30,000 for each appearance,”

“No one ever went broke underestimating the ignorance of the American public.” Mencken or PT Barnum. Or Obama.

I remember Chelsea falling down drunk on the streets of New York and trash talking her country on trips with her mother.

Maybe Bristol has something to say that girls her age might listen to. If nothing else, how to spot a jerk.

Its kind of surprising that so-called conservatives would begrudge someone hefty paydays, but I guess Sarah-hating includes equal contempt for her family.

NO wonder I didn't see it, I don't read the Daily Kos, Daily News or Beast. I leave the left-wing media to the left-wing.

Since she wasn't drinking and was just with some friends I really don't see the outrage. Maybe I don't hate her mother enough.

Sarah-hating??? Really? For constitutionally expressing disagreement with Palin? Or opposing views are okay as long as it fits yours? And what on earth does Bristol Palin has to say that any other knocked up, unmarried teen age girl wouldn't?? What exactly is making her to be the epitome of piousness and different than the rest of the knuckleheads from MTV's "16 and pregnant" ??

Talking to her peers about life as a teenage mom is more powerful than anything a parent can say. Sorry, but its true.

Good for her. I can’t imagine that she’s getting much in the way of child support payments from what’s-his-name.

None with the national prominence like hers. Don’t get why her speaking to teens is seen so negatively? Of course, crying about how much she’s making is just silly. Capitalism at its finest.

There do seem to be a large number of FReepers who have their own lives so spotless that they can volunteer to fix the lives of others, all without knowing much about them!

Pretty amazing, isn't it?
