Look, I know what you're going to say: What's wrong with Sarah Palin raising money through her political action committee so that her political action committee has money to go out and ask for more money for her political action committee? And I agree with you.
The world needs Sarah Palin's political action committee. Without it, how would we ever remember that Sarah Palin has a political action committee?
Sarah Palin's political action committee raised $388,000 in the first three months of the year, but it spent $418,000 and didn’t give a dime to any candidates — which is the purported purpose of the PAC.
So?! Why should Sarah Palin's PAC give any money to those other idiots? It's called Sarah PAC, not Mitt PAC or Newt PAC. Besides, if it gave its money away to those people, it wouldn't have any money left for really important things. Like defending Sarah Palin's honor and asking for more money to defend Sarah Palin's honor…
Instead, Sarah PAC spent $255,000 on fundraising and a small team of political consultants that Palin has continued to support even as she receded from the political spotlight during the heat of the GOP presidential primary. It also appears to have spent $19,000 on a video rebutting the HBO film Game Change.
That would, I believe, be this video…
Wow! You mean to tell me that two-minute and 38 second video only cost $19,000 to produce? Seems like a bargain. Why can't we have more fiscally conservative Republicans like her in office?!
And, hey, that's not all the money is being used for. Some of it is going towards making sure that a bunch of people look at her instead of at Mitt Romney at this year's Republican Nation Convention…
The PAC also paid $4,500 to reserve space at Channelside Bay Mall in Tampa, Fla., near the site of the Republican National Convention, suggesting that Palin plans to have an independent presence at the event separate from the formal proceedings.
SPNC! Sarah Palin National Convention! Has there ever been money more well-spent than that?
