In the last few weeks, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has been on the offensive, criticizing the way the media portrayed her and her family during the 2008 presidential election. Oh, you betcha she has! So it seems only natural that she'd want to use the media to portray her and her family the way she sees fit. Wait, what?
According to The Hollywood Reporter Sarah has hired Washington attorney Robert Barnett. This wouldn't seem like such a big deal, but this is the guy who brokered book deals for Barack Obama, former president Bill Clinton and and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He has also handled television deals for Christiane Amanpour and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
It's interesting that someone who has been so anti-media lately would even want a television or book deal. I guess all those rimless eyeglasses don't pay for themselves! There's been no comment out of the Governor's office as to why she's hired Barret, so we'll all have to wait and see how this pans out.
