What do CAA, ICM, William Morris and Paradigm all have in common? They are all major Hollywood talent agencies and they all think Sarah Palin has talent. Now, the big question is, did they all get out and vote? That was mean. They all want to get her a talk show. I really think she’d be far better off getting into nude modeling. Why hasn’t Hef called her yet? Anyways, I saw this all coming a mile away. I say stick her on the View and let Hassleback have some much needed backup.
“There are several of our imprints who are eager to talk to Governor Palin,” Random House spokesman Stuart Applebaum said. “She clearly has a constituency and we know books by conservatively-centered politicos usually sell very, very well.”
Public-relations powerhouse Howard Rubenstein added, “She’s poised to make a ton of money.” But he warned, “She ought to keep an eye on what her goals are for 2012. If she plays a game and looks foolish, if she sounds like she doesn’t know what she’s talking about – like saying Africa is a country – she may talk herself out of a political job.”
Linda Mann, president of Mann Media, which books celebrities and fashionistas for TV, noted, “Her buzz is incredible. She has car-wreck appeal. You’re compelled to watch, hoping she’ll say the dumbest things possible. I’d propose a show combining her love of fashion and lack of brainpower – ‘Project Dumbway.’ “
