Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all the time.
What's in a name?
A lot if you're one of the Palins.
Politics Daily reports that Sarah Palin's lawyer has filed applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to trademark the names "Sarah Palin" and "Bristol Palin."
Hey I thought we were going to have a "Palin Free February." Whatever happened to that? Come on, enough is enough!
They're out of luck. I've filed a patent application for the entire alphabet and any combination of the letters. If I'm successful, I will "own" their names (and anything else that's written) for the next 17 years. Just kidding ... but only equally ridiculous. Just out of curiosity, if someone else happens to be named Sarah Palin or Bristol Palin, will "the registered one" sue them? :O)
"Sarah Palin®" and "Bristol Palin®."
A career ender for both of them.
Good move Sarah! Make them PAY if they want to use, or most likely misuse, your name and likeness. Crazy like a fox!
QUITTER would be a great branding tag line! She laughs all the way to the bank! You betcha!
Had a dem critic of hers tried to trademark it, the howls and high fives frm the left wud have replaced the insults they now hurl. this is awesome news i thnk. oh yeah, her 15 min must be up cuz she is sooo not newsworthy anymore hahaha! ROCK ON Palin \m/ and breathe in the insults, it's $ in the bank!
Trademark the name to do what with it? Palin is so much of Mook I bet she has no idea of how a Trademark is used and the rule of how it can be used. I pray she doesn't plan to launch a jewelry or clothing line when her star....FINALLY...MERCIFULLY...fades to total and complete black! In which she doing a bang up job of opening her mouth and speeding up the process! Keep talkin' Sara! Git 'er DONE! mook!
Here's another one they should consider: Grifters Are Us ™
She is really a fruit cake
SURPRISE.....In the real World Palin you and your family are losers.Even though cnn keeps propping you up and nuts keep throwing money at you as if it were confetti . This still won't take away that you are nothing but a Shiny Turd.
The Palins will do anything for money, and I mean anything. Pathetic is all I can say.
Does this mean NO ONE can name their child Sarah or Bristol if their last name is PALIN?????????????????? Nor can they appear on Dancing with the Stars and/or furn for VP or P?????? Give me a BREAK and who cares!!!
Kinda tell$ you where her head i$ at, doe$n't it?
I"ll tell you one thing, it i$ no where near God, country,being a good Chri$tian, civic duty, the freaking $lave owning Founding Father$ or anything remotely akin to helping her fellow man.
It i$ a lot clo$er to that song by the O'jay$ that goe$ like thi$: Money, money, money money.....MONEYYY$$$$$$$!!!!!!!!!
I guess what with Crash-N-Burn McCain NOT endorsing her candidacy for president, she needs to re-position herself across the board so as to be able to ca$h in at every po$$ible opportunity that her name is u$ed.
Why? It is not as if there are a lot of people willing to call themselves Sarah Palin. and those that are are likely to be her supporters.
Please just stop writing about her.
Really? This is getting out of hand. Maybe this should disqualify her from any and all elections going forward and therefore saving those whole country from embarrassment from her unintelligable ranting.
