Just when you think Sarah Palin can’t get any more ridiculous…. Her latest harebrained scheme is to trademark herself.
Yes, Palin thinks she deserves to be a household name, like Sara Lee, Betty Crocker, Aunt Jemima, or Mrs. Potato Head.
In her application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Palin cited the reasons for the trademark as her website and educational and entertainment services, including motivational speaking in politics, culture, business, and values. OK, I’ll buy entertainment, but education? The only “knowledge” she has about the 4 topics she listed is stuff she makes up.
The Trademark Office has given her until May 29 to come up with better reasons.
You know where this is going, don’tcha? If Palin gets her trademark, she’ll use it as a weapon, claiming trademark infringement whenever a media outlet makes money by airing or printing uncomplimentary items about her.
She could tie the courts in knots for years.
On the other hand, this trademark move lays bare Palin’s plan to put profit above the presidency. When’s the last time this country elected a President™?
But now that she’s going commercial, nobody should feel bad about tuning her out like any other Mad Ave. gimmickry.
Bristol is also trying to trademark her name for motivational speaking, as if, “Keep your legs together until you’re legal,” is her own original concept.
I’m kind of surprised Bristol hasn’t applied to Lloyd’s of London to insure her dancing feet.
Note to Palin admirers: It’s become all about the money, and she intends to make her profit off YOU.
