WASHINGTON (CNN)– The 'First Dude' of Alaska will no longer be working in the oil fields.
The Alaska Dispatch reports Todd Palin has quit his job with BP’s North Slope operation. The newspaper quotes BP Company spokesman Steve Rinehart as saying Palin submitted his resignation last month and officially resigned September 18.
As a production operator, Todd Palin was responsible for management of the oil gathering centers, where oil is gathered from multiple wells.
BP PLC is one of the largest energy companies in the world.
Todd Palin, the "First Dude" to former Governor Sarah Palin, shot to national fame along with his wife when she was named Republican vice presidential nominee. He also professionally races snowmobiles (known in Alaska as “snowmachines) and is a commercial fisherman.
News of his resignation comes about two months after Sarah Palin's resignation from office on July 26.
Mike in VA:
"Michelle Obamba quit her "made-up just for her job" so why isn't Todd Palin allowed resign his?
You liberal hypocrites make me want to throw up!!"
Well you know her husband has, you know, like a real job and stuff. And she has a new job now. It is called first lady. Not that I care what Palin's husband does or does not do. I hope she wins the GOP nom in 2012. That would be the biggest gift possible for those pesky "liberals."
You Libs crack me up. You really feel so threatened by Sara Palin and family. Ok so the guy quits. I am sure if you had the same situation you would quit your job also. I am sure he will move on to bigger things in life. Hey look at it this way, he gave up his job so someone else who needed it more could work. Now that is what I call generoisty. Of course you Libs wouldn't know that because you want someone else to pay for all the benefits.
She has you libbers jumping through your own hoops. Why do you libbers and Dem's have such a fixation on this woman and now man.? Pedro you sound as if you are a drinking buddy of obama's.
They are an inspiration to quitters everywhere.
In fact, I was going to work in my yard, before I read this article. But, I quit.
Smart move. His loving wife is making tons of money now.
Intertainment in america can make you big money.
Circus of clowns
According to Levy the Palins do not cook. The children cook for themselves. Maybe Todd will be a stay home dad. Someone posted Sarah is beautiful. Sarah maybe beautiful but her dumbness is forever. I will remember her as a dummy!
It is noteworthy to realize how easy it is to make a living of the gullibility of the American people.
If I could afford to quit my job I would. Good for him, hopefully he will spend time with his family.
"I love Sarah Palin because she drives liberals to drink. Good work you luscious, intelligent, beautiful woman."
The old classic white dude misogynistic right-winger response. So she would make a great president because you want to sleep with her? Way to make a point.
This just shows how fickle some people are. I would not pay one dime to hear her speak or buy her book. If more felt this way, they both would have to work like the rest of us.
who cares?? focus on something that really matters...
Why is this on CNN?Who cares! Get with it CNN. Print NEWS not garbage!
Wo cares. You people at CN N keep serving up this drivel. Give us a break from the Palin s
She must have rubbed off on him quite a bit.
A family of quiters
The first Book Deal check must have arrived!!! Why work when your family can live off of lies and innuendo that someone will publish? Or look for Todd's new book 'Snowmobile Rogue...tales about Flakes'!!
Quittin' runs in this family.
Too F-- bad!!!! Too bad it wasn't the B-- herself!!!!
Someone has to be around to read her book! Maybe Todd is editing her next book! If Sara Palin had a brain she would be dangerous! At least she is on the Republican side!!
Okay enough is enough. You no brained baboons need to leav e this family alone. Whatever makes you think the Likes of the OBama are better than these people. What you are doing is the exact reason you Democrat hyprocrites will never succeed in anything.
Good for him! Don't even think about the 1 Million + for Obama to go and plead for the Olympics in Chicago and lost. Just concentrate on how to degrade someone who is not on Welfare or Medicaid. How is his family any different from mainstream America?
I think that . . .
oh, I quit.
