Sarah Palin, hot-selling cartoon character

By Michael Cavna


SARAH PALIN is sparkling big-time sales of not only her memoir, "Going Rogue." The former Alaska guv has also meant serious business for the comic-book company Bluewater Productions.

Bluewater says its releasing its fourth printing of its Palin bio comic last this month. The new "Female Force: Sarah Palin, Going Rogue Edition" updates adds artwork and features a new cover, by Vinnie Tartamella.

"People just can't get enough of Sarah Palin," says Bluewater's prez, Darren Davis, who notes that his company has never issued four printings for a single bio.

The "Female Force" series chronicles the lives of "strong and influential women who are shaping modern history and culture," including Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and (later this month) J.K. Rowling.

All of which raises the Official 'Riffs Question of the Day: What "strong and influential" woman do you think should be featured in the next "Female Force" series? (Sotomayor? Pelosi? Elin Nordegren??) All nominees now welcome.

They should select a woman whose significance corresponds to an appearance in a comic book, and whose ideals match the publisher's desire of making lots of money quickly. The answer, of course, is Michaele Salahi.

Comic books we'd like to see:
"Wonder Woman vs. Oprah". Who'd win?

Where do you get the idea that Palin is "strong"?
She hasn't been able to educate herself in 40 years. As a major party candidate, she was afraid to be interviewed by the press. She still fears debating her "views" with any competent opponent.
Maybe arrogant, certainly mendacious, but where do you dream up strong? During a seance with Broder?
