Sarah Palin’s rambling, incoherent speech at Iowa’s Freedom Summit proved to be as profitable for a potential Hillary Clinton presidential run as it was detrimental to any future Palin political aspirations, with the former vice-presidential nominee inadvertently raising over $25,000 for a pro-Hillary PAC.
According to the Independent, the Ready for Hillary political action committee used a screen shot of Palin holding up a “I’m Ready for Hillary” car magnet during her speech in a tweet directing followers to the PAC website where they were encouraged to make a donation and get a car magnet of their own.
The Ready for Hillary PAC congratulated Palin, noting that the amount raised by promoting the PAC qualified Palin to become a co-chair of the Ready for Hillary National Finance Committee.
During her speech Palin mocked Clinton while holding up the magnet and saying “I’m ready for Hillary, are you? Are you coming? Hey Iowa, can anyone stop Hillary? To borrow a phrase, ‘Yes we can!’ And it starts here and it starts now.”
In a press release, the group stated, “Sarah Palin inadvertently gave herself a new title — Co-Chair of Ready for Hillary’s National Finance Council! Yesterday, we sent an email to our supporters telling you how Sarah Palin held up a Ready for Hillary car magnet during a recent speech. The response we got was overwhelming — hundreds of supporters stepped up and Sarah ended up raising Ready for Hillary over $25,000 in grassroots donations.”
They added, “Here’s the kicker — by raising $25,000, Sarah officially qualifies as a Co-Chair of our National Finance Council.”
According to the PAC, they are waiting to hear from the former governor turned reality TV show host before adding her to their list of high roller fundraisers.
During the same speech, which has been derided by liberals and conservative alike, Palin’s Twitter account was sending out continuous tweets, directing followers to Palin’s own PAC, SarahPAC.
