Sarah Palin’s sperminator, AKA, Todd Palin, won’t be pulling a shift on Alaska’s frozen North Slope this winter. The husband of the former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate quit his day job with BP, the energy company confirmed Thursday.
Company spokesman Steve Rinehart said Todd Palin submitted his resignation effective Sept. 18th, 2009. Todd was a production operator on Alaska’s North Slope where oil comes from multiple wells.
The news comes only a few days after publishing company HarperCollins announced Sarah’s memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” would be released Nov. 17th, several months ahead of schedule, with an initial run of 1.5 million copies. His wife, Sarah, reportedly pocketed a staggering $7 million dollars for her memoir.
The Alaska governor resigned in July with more than a year remaining in her first term, announcing she wouldn’t run for re-election and didn’t want to be considered a “lame duck” governor during her final months in office. Her curious behavior reportedly cost the state at least $1 million dollars.
Palin’s husband, who Alaskans dismissively referred to as the “First Dude,” often accompanied her on the national campaign trail after she was tapped to be the vice-presidential running mate by Sen. John McCain. Todd wowed FOX News’ host Greta Van Susteren with a macho snowmachine ride through the remote woods outside of the Palins’ Wasilla home.
Now that Sarah Palin is a multi-millionairess, I suppose no one can blame Todd for giving up a tough day job on the frozen tundra to settle in as a kept man. Hell, let’s be honest: Todd Palin won the lottery!
