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.
Only in America can you be a no-name person, with very limited intelligence, but have good looks, then fool enough people that you are really important, write a book in 2 months, get enough idiots to purchase it and then become a millionaire! Way to go Sarah and Todd! I am sure that both of you are laughing all the way to the bank.
Hey, if you don't need the job and the money there are plenty of people with out work that do. Just opens up a spot for someone who might really need a job.
Why would anyone continue working when uhbumba is going to tax the **** out of them? Live off the system like any good barakie should.
good. now he can get back to work trying to get alaska to secede from the union.
Looks like it runs in the family!
He was probably getting fired anyway.
Is this worthless thing a news????!!!!Palin obsessed CNN!!!!????
Doesn't anyone in the Palin family have any "sticktoitiveness" traits?
Are they all just "losers"? Guess the latter is more the
representative of them....oh well!
Well of course he quit! SOMEBODY has to hold the crayons for her book signings.
I didn't even know he had a job!
The Palins must be the quitingest family in America. Elected Governor? Quit. Good job? Quit. Went to college? Quit. Went to college again? Quit. Went to college again and again? Quit.
You know, he probably only had the job because Brainy Sarah had accidentally become governor, and once she resigned, he could not have been any use to them anymore.
I'm sure the conservatives will give the Plain family plenty more opportunities to quit from or fail. Conservatives call it leadership.
As Roseanne once said, "Nothing's scarier than white trash with money."
Wow, you people who write this stuff , and make these comments need to get a life. This rag blows.
All I'm saying is if she runs for President, their is a good chance that whoever she picks for VP will end up being the President when she quits. To be on the safe side I'll stay with who I know can handle pressure President Obama because everything has been done to make him want to quit.
When ms. runs for president, he he can relate to the unemployed and tell about the hardship. And ms. Palin can we say we understand how it is to suffer . I hope he can get unemployment .
I suspect it has something to do with removing ties to large oil companies before her 2012 bid.
who cares.get a life cnn.these palen people arw.BUMS
It is obviously clear that Todd Palin wears the skirt in the Palin family while Sarah wears the pants.
First of Palin didn't quit she had to step down to save her family and state from going into debt because of ridiculous ethics complaints coming from the far left wing nuts who are afaid of Palin. Second this was only his second job his first is his fishing business!
Do these people ever finish anything they start? Of course not, now that wifey has a few thousand dollars under her belt why should he work. Why don't we start shoving them to the entertainment section where so many other stations have moved them to? They are no longer political anything. Not that they ever were.
At least one of them can be home taking care of the kids and that special needs child of hers which is nowhere to be seen. Oh yeah, that's right nobody has critized in public for a while.
These people are a disgusting bunch. Stop covering them!!!
At first, I started getting all steamed up and angry about this over exposed, pathetic couple, and then I thought....who cares...what comes around goes around. They deserve what ever they get! I am not making myself angry any more about them. I feel very sorry for their children. I wonder if they ever see their parents. Oh well.....there are people with much bigger problems...ta ta....
I fail to see the newsworthiness of this. People resign from jobs every day. The media's Palin-fixation continues.
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!!
