The best defense…

sarah palin defense fund …is a good legal fund.

Or so says Alaska Fund Trust spokesperson and Sarah Palin’s longtime friend Kristan Cole.  Palin is faced with half a million dollars in legal fees stemming from various lawsuits concerning her alleged ethics breaches; the most recent lawsuit comes from an Alaska citizen who claims that Palin flew to a right-to-life rally on PAC dollars.  The legal defense fund has been set up, in the words of Cole, for this reason:

“Over the past months it became increasingly clear that supporters of Gov. Palin needed to help defend against the onslaught of frivolous attacks against her. These baseless accusations are designed to inhibit her ability to focus on the issues Alaskans truly care about and force massive personal debt on her and her family.”

Is moose meat a good way to raise money for the fund?  Is it just suggesting that Palin’s in the crosshairs (or that she has antlers)?  Hmm… we’re not sure.  The design at right, we’re assuming, might indicate that Joe the Plumber is managing the defense fund (it came up under a search for “palin fund,”) but as far as we know Joe the Plumber hasn’t yet made this career switch.  Then again, he does seem to be a plumber of many toolbelts…

  2. I agree with Melissa Hedwall. How dare Sarah Palin run for office! Everyone doesn’t agree with her crazy ideas like babies are human beings or the need for a strong defense. Conservative women should just shut up. Only liberal women have a right to have an opinion in this country. Silly non-tolerant conservatives…

  3. Now you’ve done it Chris!
    You’ve insulted their right to insult,, by agreeing with the notion in all of it’s irony and hypocrisy, easily done within their very own dialect-of-logic.

    Sarah had to manage money, work within a budget.
    Tha Prez’ made his fortune creating new ways of simply taxing money away, and building his brochure giving it away.
    Managing finite resources takes a lot more skill.

  4. The complaints filed aren’t lawsuits; they’re ethics complaints.

    The most expensive ethics complaint is the one Sarah Palin filed against herself in regards to Troopergate, where she abused her power as governor to try and get her ex-brother-in-law fired.
