From an article in People.com:
Bristol Palin recently told People that being a single mother was financially difficult for her. Well, this should help a little. Palin, 19, the daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, is set to join the speaker circuit and stands to make between $15,000 and $30,000 per speech, RadarOnline reports. Palin became an teen-abstinence advocate after giving birth to a son, Tripp, 16 months ago. “Her teen pregnancy and the birth of her son Tripp resulted in millions of Americans discussing the issues surrounding teen pregnancy,” reads her bio at Single Source Speakers.
You know world, I have LOTS of wisdom to share, and would be happy to do so for $30,000 a pop. But hey, why stop there? Want to get REALLY depressed? Her mom’s average speaking fee is $100,000. Hey tea party people: you should ask her for some loans! Or your donations back. Can you say “emperor’s new clothes?”
