Late Night: Palin Family’s Latest Flails and Fails

When last we visited the Alaskan All-stars, aka the the Superstar Snowbunnies, the Thrillas from Wasilla, Sarah was shootin’ elks on her reee-aliteee teevee show and Li’l Bristol  had jest ’bout won the dancin’ show.

Well now it’s almost Valentine’s Day and time to check in on the family:

Sarah Palin™(not) spoke about Ronnie Reagan Friday February 4 at the Reagan Ranch center in honor of the Gipper’s 100th birthday. RIP Ronnie’s son, Ron, Jr. was not amused.

Bristol Palin™(not) moved to Arizona, bought a house, and is writing her memoir! According to her new home is a 4000 square feet, with five bedrooms, and she scooped it up at the bargain price of $172,000 cash. Meanwhile, there are no court papers supporting Ms Bris’ wish Facebook post that Tripp’s last name was changed to “Palin.”

In other sad name related news, Reuters reports that both Sarah and Bristol Palin’s attempts to trademark their names were rejected because… A trademark examiner said:

Registration is refused because the applied-for mark, SARAH PALIN, consists of a name identifying a particular living individual whose consent to register the mark is not of record.

In other words…um she forgot to sign application.

The office also said Palin’s application failed to show that her name had been used in commerce and could also be rejected on those grounds.
Bristol Palin’s application also will need to be redone, according to a similar office action filed in her case.
