Yesterday Sarah Palin — author, television star, paragon of conservative virtues — demonstrated her leadership by doing a paid speaking gig at the Wine & Spirits Convention in Las Vegas.
I know. I wish I could've been there, too. Luckily some people with Twitters documented the moment…
Sarah Palin didn't talk abt anything regarding the Wine & Spirits biz. All Obama bashing.
Sarah Palin just thanked former Pres. George W. Bush for keeping out country safe. She seems very bitter about Obama winning.
Mmmm. Sour grapes at a wine convention. Meanwhile, over at the White Castle…
Dave Schwartz, the campaign manager for Nevadans for Sensible Marijuana Laws (NSML), will offer Palin $25,000 to deliver a similar address to supporters of a regulated marijuana market in this country.
In exchange for the $25,000, Palin will be asked to speak at one of NSML's upcoming events, acknowledge that marijuana is just as legitimate a recreational substance as the substance she is talking about at the WSWA convention and endorse taxing and regulating marijuana in Nevada and throughout the U.S.
"There's no reason why former governor Palin should reject our offer," Schwartz said.
Well… there may be one reason.
Actually there may be 75,000 reasons.

Okay, it's not official yet, but it's looking really good for Oscar Goodman — the Independent current mayor of Las Vegas, Philadelphia native, and celebrity spokesperson for Bombay Gin — to announce his next big move in the near future. And announce it in style…
"I envision making my announcement to run for governor with showgirls on my arm. If [the people] don't like it, they can vote for someone else. And if I'm governor, I'll cavort with showgirls and I'll keep drinking my gin and betting on anything that moves," Goodman told the Philadelphia Inquirer, his hometown paper. "I won't change!"
You had me at "run for governor with showgirls on my arm." You had me at "run for governor with showgirls on my arm."
