    Default Palin family news: Todd quits job; Sarah wants cosmetic deal

    Todd Palin has quit his oil field job on the North Slope, the AP reports:

    Todd Palin's resignation as a production operator for oil giant BP PLC comes almost two months after his wife stepped down as Alaska governor and shortly before the release of her highly anticipated memoir.

    BP spokesman Steve Rinehart says Todd Palin's resignation was effective Sept. 18.

    Meghan Stapleton, Sarah Palin's personal spokeswoman, says Todd Palin hopes to return to his union job and for now is spending time with his family.

    Like his wife's surprising resignation, this appears to be a change of plans. From an interview last July:

    Todd Palin did say that Alaska would remain their home base and indicated that, despite the millions that may come their way after his wife leaves office, he had no plan to give up his blue-collar jobs.

    "I'll always be a fisherman, I'll probably always be out working on the slope," he said, alluding to his oilfields job in the state's far-northern tier.
    Todd Palin Resigns From Oil Job

    It's hard to fathom that it's been just over a year since former Alaskan governor/VP hopeful Sarah Palin was unleashed on the world.

    Because now she's everywhere - including, possibly, on your lips.

    You see, there's a pretty little rumor running around the beauty industry that Palin's agents are seeking a cosmetics deal. Page Six reports that the Palin crew may be attempting to capitalize on her infamous joke about the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom. (Lipstick. Har har.)

    But have they forgotten about that other lipstick reference from the campaign? You can put lipstick on a pig...

    Anyhoo, if this rumor is true we think Palin is opening the door for more rampant media scrutiny and gratuitous swine jokes.

    Vote in the poll below and tell us what you think: Will Palin rear her head into beauty industry airspace, or is this idea her own personal bridge to nowhere?

    Gawd! What WILL it take for these losers to fade into anonymity and just get the fuck off the front page? And take their freaky relatives with them? There must be some remote deserted island that needs a family.

    It was only a part-time job (two weeks on, two weeks off), but I guess they don't need the money any more.

    I dunno--my first thought on hearing that Todd had quit his job is that they are up to something. Maybe he's going to lead some kind of uprising of Alaskans--perhaps to secede from the US? Maybe that's what Sarah quit governoring (though would be easier to pull off secession from the inside and declare herself president of Alaska).

    Maybe it means that they are going to come down to the lower 48 and fuck with our minds up close and personal?

    I find it very disquieting to consider the possibilities.

    Homer already invented the makeup gun, Palin.

    There was talk about her moving to the the un-American part of the country earlier in the year--weren't the Hamptons and Manhattan discussed?

    However, it would be great if she tried to start an uprising, or, even better, started her very own Evangelical (or Pentecostal or whatever the hell it is) church. She could flap her hate-filled gums every Sunday and have people sitting in the audience waving their hands around when she spoke to catch her holiness. She does believe Alaska is going to be one of the refuge states at the end of days, so maybe she thinks she can make some money off the loonies trailing into the state.

    My understanding is that all North Slope jobs are like that: two weeks on, two weeks off.

    A cosmetic contract? She's such a polarizing figure that I can't imagine any of the big companies would sign her for anything.

    I think Sarah may be the brains of the family.
