Sarah Palin has hired a big-time lawyer to help her negotiate a book deal. From the Los Angeles Times' Andrew Malcolm:
The 44-year-old mother of five has reportedly retained high-powered Washington super-attorney Robert Barnett, who's negotiated mutimillion-dollar book deals for numerous high-profile clients from Bill Clinton to his wife (who started work on her next book as secretary of State today) and the young Great Changer's audacious autobiography.
Palin, whose family is not wealthy, could make a bundle from a thoughtful book, which could also help the political reconstruction work on her image as a dimbo. There have been larger political reconstruction projects in recent U.S. history. Think, well, Big Bill himself, who was once on TV denying having sex with someone not his wife. And then a few years later reported making, what, $105 million or something in the post-presidential aftermath.
No word yet on whether it will be a pop-up book complete with fold outs showing wolves dodging helicopter fire or moose being field-dressed.
