Unbelievably, now there is a 2009 Sarah Palin calendar available for all those drooling guys out there who just can't get enough of their favorite rifle packing mama from Alaska. Now all year long, your favorite wolf-shooting mama can be your wall's top pinup Queen. Amazing.
Also unbelievably, a porn film with a Sarah Palin lookalike produced by Larry Flynt productions has also managed to top some national video sales charts for many weeks now, proving some sort of sexual attraction for the Alaska Governor by some guys who view the gun-toting lady with the annoying voice as their ultimate wet dream. At the same time, many others simply find Sarah Palin's voice about as sexy as nails on a chalkboard.
Strangely, Sarah Palin is suddenly finding herself marketed as some sort of male sex fantasy queen very similar to those actresses like Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra or others who pose for sexy layouts like in MAXIM or PLAYBOY or for posters.
Recent marketing continues for a large selection of Obama collectibles as well, including plates, hats and watches. However, the Sarah Palin marketing is far more associated with male fantasy than not. Strangely, after falling far short of winning the vice presidency, Sarah Palin continues to attract fans for odd reasons including the male fantasy angle rather than her actual substance as an elected official.
Celebrity and marketing are strange phenomenons. And the continued cult of celebrity surrounding Sarah Palin only continues to amaze and confound me.
It just never seems to amaze me what makes a buck these days.
