Sarah Palin not falling off face of the earth, pursued by talent agencies (Damn.)

The Superficial / November 9, 2008

Remember this lady? Surprise! She’s sticking around. Sarah Palin is being actively pursued by top talent agencies such as CAA, ICM, William Morris and Paradigm. All of them are looking to make her the “White Oprah” complete with book deal by the end of November. Here’s what top professionals in the field told Page Six:

“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.’ “

Personally, I don’t care if they give Sarah Palin her own channel and line of collectible figurines. Just as long as she’s nowhere near the nucular codes and I have to watch a press conference where “Cross my heart, I’m just your regular Joe Six-Pack who thought Italy was a moose when I fired those doggone missiles. Am I sorry? You betcha. In the meantime, if I start winking it’s not because I’m being folksy, I think the CIA poisoned my latte.”
