The former Alaska governer and influential conservative leader has filed for a trademark on her name. So has her daughter Bristol. How come? Because they're worried someone might highjack the Palin brand.No word on Todd, Trip, Track, Trig, Kumquat, Bratwurst, or the rest of the oddly-named family.
Sadly, Reuters follows up with this:
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's bid to trademark both her name and that of her daughter Bristol ran into trouble at the Patent and Trademark Office because the application forms were not signed, government records show.Yeah, they probably forgot... their names, that is.
Aw nuts. Forgot I'm supposed to be ignoring Palin this week. That didn't last long. However, I can feel good about putting that "R in a circle" after Palin®'s name henceforth.
