Sarah Palin Earns $12 Million Since July

Sarah Palin has made 100 times her old salary of $125,000 a year since leaving her post as Governor of Alaska.

The 46-year-old Fox News correspondent has reportedly earned $12 million since leaving her former job in July. Sarah has raked in cash from TV, book deals and speaking appearances.

The $12 million salary is only an estimate of what Sarah is bringing in – an aide told ABC News that now that she’s no longer a public official, “her fees and earnings are private.”

    I luv Sarah, she is so perfect

  • Birch Barlow

    So left-wing celebrities can make millions and upon millions, and it’s okay for them, right on, but when a conservative woman does it, she’s a witch? Liberal tolerance at its finest…

  • loyal

    Good for her! She deserves it. The press smeared this woman and her family and chased her out of office. She is smart enough to grab the brass ring.

  • observer

    …and she still thinks that Africa is a country & dinosaurs co-existed with people. oh dear, why on earth would a university invite her to speak? for students to learn what? it’s not like she’s going to speak about another breakthrough on nanotechnology? or the marvels of bio-engineering? it’s just going to be same old politics & hypocrisy.

  • Ckayed

    Sarah is a skank and very, very dumb – as in dumb as a box of hair. How did this woman ever get 12 million? Oh, that’s right, there are stupid people who actually think she is relevant.

  • Holly

    Anytime I see this woman I only remember Tina Fey.

  • To observer

    She believes no of that and that you believe that she does only shows your ignorance and that get your news from mainstream media and you are not very well read yourself. Just because you believe in God and that you think Creationism should be allowed to be taught in school as it relates to our Christian heritage (which is what Western society is sprang from) doesn’t mean one doesn’t believe in ebolution as well. Open your mind.

  • blah

    Just comes to show you , even a dumb ass whore can make some cash


    Which is why this woman forsook her constituents (her voters).

    Palin cares not one iota for public service, honoring commitments, integrity, her state, her country, or even policy.

    What Palin cares for is MONEY.

  • LeviKlein

    Yet another example of dumb people earning way more money than what they actually deserve. Look around and you find smart and capable people who can’t even afford to pay their rent even thought they are the ones who can push the country forward and do something smart for a change. Instead we have HER slapped into our faces everyday. This is simply disguting.

  • niwatori

    Goes to show you don’t need brains or common sense to earn bucks. It’s a sad world.

  • xxx

    Disgusting. I feel sick.
    Just goes to show once again, you don’t need to be educated to be filthy rich.

  • offtheproperty

    anyone who believes she cares about anything but herself is a fool (and a republican)

  • A

    Sarah is another narcissist just like Kate Gosselin. Funny how Kate says her new book will outsell Sarah’s. Even narcissists compete with each other.

    Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of US (1809 – 1865)

    Sarah Palin is supported by those people who can be fooled all of the time.

    Those who want to give their money away to watch her speak from notes written on her hand, or who will buy that book she didn’t write, I say fine! Great! Give her all your support and your money! Fools.

  • anna

    She only cares about money and fame. Her supporters are so deluded.

  • please

    what am i doing wrong? why can’t i be making that kind of money from doing good in the world?

  • Lauren

    It makes me sick that this idiot made that much money while teachers make peanuts compared to this.

  • http://JustJared butterflier

    So now we know why she didn’t want to stick out her governor’s term. This woman is an idiot and so are the people who support this brainless twit. $12 million? For what? What a world.

  • http://JustJared butterflier

    Nobody smeared this woman out of anything. She is incapable of holding office. She’s also a quitter. Money talks.

  • Dante

    Just Jared, maybe you can post what former politicians on the left make, like say Al Gore who was worth 3 million when he let the White House and now is worth 400 million, all to do with his snake oil salesmanship of hyping Global Warming, so his companies can get more subsidies through the government or all the potential money he will rack in if a Cap and Trade bill passes.

    Or how about Bill Clinton who’s made over 100 million dollars mostly by foreign governments and companies, wonder what he is peddling to them , maybe access …… but lets just report on Sara Palin, because she isn’t a left wing loon.

  • superman

    hmm sounds like we have a bunch of far left morons on here who think tnia frey was the real Sarah Palin. You idiots just want to hate and hate and hate and hate and hate. welcome to reality morons people like her. And on that note she isn’t dumb if she is making more money then you she must be smart. All i see here are a bunch of pricks who just want to pick on a lady who has a job. You people think all those myths nbc said are true the you really are either naive or just plain hateful people.

  • superman

    i hate far left pricks who insult people all day amd night because they think they know better then them. You morons need to grow a pair of balls and realize you suck because all you do is shoot hate speech all day long like the school bully who was actully a homesexual prick. Or is it metrosexual sexual lol i don’t know but i do is that your not ones to be talking and saying someone is dumb or stupid people like you are the reason we can’t get along and thats why both party’s suck. Dems are morons and republicans talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. Shame on you hater’s but hey at least it shows your lack of maturity

  • Some Bunny

    I’d rather not mix my political views with my secret guilty pleasures here Jared.

    However….where do i begin? The hypocrites (right wing tea baggers) try to speak out and stand up for the Average American yet Palin and her likes, (Beck, Limbaugh and Bachmann) are not living in the same economic reality as the people they supposedly represent. These people are the biggest fame ho’s riding on name dropping President Obama, and speak to the biggest racist crowds. Somehow becoming a political advocate for the right is attached to huge amounts of money. Lets hope they pay their fair share of taxes thou I am pretty sure they all have huge tax shelters.
    Love and Peace

  • Nicki

    Her book sold very well and made good money. She works very hard, gives conferences, speeches and just got a very lucrative contract from FOX news. The money is legitimate. What’s wrong? OK… I see, it’s because she is a woman and a conservative. That’s the problem, right?

    I wonder how much money the little idiot who used to date her daughter got from posing naked in Playgirl and by giving interviews to bash the Palin family? Do we know?

  • we are doomed

    Palin and Gosselin etc etc. mirror of large portion of our sick society that does not, (and chooses not to), comprehend right and wrong.

  • rhonda

    Go watch Michelle Obama hula hoop if thats what floats your boat. Tina Fey looks silly at this point. Sarah inspires millions! get over it!

  • klm

    Maybe now she can afford diction lessons and learn how to pronounce “nuclear,” instead of saying “nucular.” What an idiot.

  • So Judgemental

    Hmm.. isn’t that why Levi said she quit her job as Governor? Because she wanted more cash more then she wanted to govern the great state of Alaska? What a leader!! Lead by greed. Good message Palin.

  • http://JustJared Pam

    Bill Clinton – President (degree in law) served 8 yrs in the White House
    Al Gore – Vice President (masters degree in government) served 8 yrs in the White House
    Sarah Palin – 2 years as Governor of Alaska, then quit before finishing her term, degree in communications/journalism

    I’m not a liberal, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which one of the three has less experience.


    The last time I checked, Clinton and Gore finished what they were elected to do. Palin quit before her term was up to grab all the money she can. She is the one who spouts how patriotic she is and how she cares for this country so much. If she wants people to take her seriously, she should have finished her term as governor. Then she wouldn’t look so bad.

  • PillowTalk

    I don’t know who is scarier: Sarah Palin or the koolaid chuggers who support her.

    The woman has NOTHING to offer our country but her inane criticisims. She is nowhere near qualified to hold a high public office, and that should have been apparent to the McCain campaign. They endangered our country by putting Palin in the position where she could have potentially been President of The United States! That is about the most unpatriotic thing I can imagine anyone doing. Sarah Palin did not even have the cojones to see out her term as Governor of Alaska. She let down the people she was elected to serve, for money.

    Palin is nothing more than a female version of Rush Limbaugh.

    Please people! For the preservation of our democracy, do not elect morons to public office! If you care about our country, OPEN YOUR EYES AND YOUR MINDS.

    She didn’t write the book. It was ghostwritten by Lynn Vincent. Palin’s writing ability doesn’t extend beyond the palm of her hand.

    “FOX news” is an oxymoron. It should properly be called “FOX propaganda”.

    The problem is NOT because she’s a woman and a conservative. It’s because she has nothing positive to offer. Anyone can criticize. It takes someone with balls to step up and deliver the solutions our country so desperately needs.

    And that person is a man named Barack Obama.

    “I wonder how much money the little idiot who used to date her daughter got from posing naked in Playgirl and by giving interviews to bash the Palin family? Do we know?”

    What does it say about Sarah Palin and her family that this little idiot is the father of her grandchild?

  • superman

    @PillowTalk: hmmm you really have the far left talking points down don’t you. obama sucks government sucks Bush sucks democrates suck republicans. suck they are all greedy and power hungry including obama.

  • PillowTalk

    @superman: Far left talking points? You apparently don’t know your left hand from your right. I only wish the people in this country would start THINKING and stop blindly buying into far-right slogans and propaganda.

    Government sucks? In a democracy, THE PEOPLE ARE THE GOVERNMENT. It’s time Americans started taking some responsibility for what happens in this country and quit whining about their ‘rights’ all the time.

    Where would we be without government? We’d have no roads, no schools, no airports, no electricity, no clean water, no safe food. We’d have anarchy. The government is only as good as the voters, who have a responsibility to educate and inform themselves of the issues. It’s high time Americans stopped being so self-centered and started thinking about what is best for the country as a whole instead of only considering their own narrow special interests.

    All the anti-everything negativity is ruining this country. The debate should be about the issues and not hyperbole and name-calling, which seems all Sarah Palin is capable of doing. She has nothing to offer but more whining.

  • superman

    @PillowTalk: All im hearing is talking points from you and ive heard them all. Both party’s suck ok both the far left sucks and the far right sucks ok we need government that listens not people who do stuff because they think they know better in truth they don’t they are just elitest. I hate both party’s both are greedy and power hungry the far left is just worse right now.
