Putting it away for her and her son’s education. I bet!

No doubt.

I wish my 19 year old could go on the circuit at $30,000 a whack. His message would be “Why I am such a stud” (He has always had a healthy self image, LOL)

Seriously, more power to her. I am willing to bet these past few years have been a time of personal growth for her. It will be refreshing to have someone her age with her message on the National Stage.

She isn't as stupid as one who would state:

" How many pregnant teenage girls are going to pay $30,000.00 to hear her speak? NONE."

By the way, if you were offered 30k to speak before a group would you accept or decline? And please, don't lie.

She has a savvy advisor, you know.


I assume you mean the same woman who was her advisor when she got pregnant.

Hey now, don’t go bringing simple, straightforward logic into this. Some of these creeps are too busy being “outraged, outraged, I say!” :)

Nice mouth. You might feel more at home at DU or Kos with language like that. It's no surprise that you're on pins & needles to hear the musings of a teenage unwed mother.

Whatever you pretend to be, you clearly aren't a conservative.

"She is the perfect object lesson, she may actually perform some good by doing this. "

Perfect object lesson? What planet are you living on? How has Bristol Palin suffered because of her pregnancy?

How many teenage unwed mothers do you know that have made multiple appearances on Oprah? That have been on the View? Who have allegedly signed book deals? That have been giving speaking roles on popular tween television shows? And are poised to collect substantial 5-figure fees for talking about their lives?

She has been sending precisely the wrong message, not the right on. Rather than doing the hard work, like enrolling in a 4-year college to be able to make a life for yourself, which is what a normal teenage mother should aspire to do, she's cashing in on her mother's fame. As I said, she's famous for being famous, and for getting knocked up in high school, nothing more. What words of wisdom she can share with other high school girls, when her reality is so absolutely foreign to theirs, is a mystery.

If she gives speeches advocating abstinence, using her own untimely pregnancy as an Object Lesson; don’t be surprised if the sperm donor demands half her speaking fees for his “services”!

On what grounds?
They were never married..
He's not gonna get a penny of her money.

I'm not a troll masquadering as a conservative and attacking a kid of one of the few real conservative leaders we have.

Buzz off, libtard. Since you're into DU and Kos, your Palin bashing would fit in well there.

I find is so ironic that a pro life conservative site is slamming a girl for keeping her baby, and actually making money to provide for it.

it really is amazing to see the snarky comments from conservatives primarily because they don't like Sarah Palin. PDS is alive and well!

You drew a conclusion about a person's opinion of Sarah Palin from that person's opinion about an action of her daughter's.

Your conclusion is incorrect. We happen to like Sarah Palin.

The reason your conclusion is incorrect is that your logic is defective. It is possible to disapprove of an action of a relative of someone you approve of. (It is even possible to disapprove of an action of someone you approve of, while your general opinion of them remains approving.)

I am used to seeing this kind of error from people on the left side of the political discussion, but it does occur on the right.

I suspect you'd pay good money to hear her talk?

On the scale of exploding liberal heads, I give this 5 stars.

To ogle her, maybe.

Sarah is good as a gadfly, showing that the elites don’t have all (or many) of the answers.

But she’s short on policy details on how to take on the biggest threat to the US right now - the banks.

I’m real short on paying money for people who don’t know their ass from this particular warm rock right about now.

Oh, wait... I didn’t RTFA. Bristol, the kid?

Um, no. I’ve no patience for children’s nonsense these days.

She’s getting paid 30 large per appearance to.... what? Flap her childish gums?

No, I’m not paying for any of that until they play the Stanley Cup in Hell.
