Sarah Palin a ‘Beautiful’ person?
Professional wrestling and politics are being linked together yet again.
We’ve already seen Jesse “The Body” Ventura elected as the governor of Minnesota a decade ago, and last April, presidential candidates Barack Obama, John McCain and Hillary Clinton cut wrestling promos on Raw.
Now, Alaska governor and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been invited by TNA to become an honorary member of The Beautiful People.
TNA has scheduled a Sarah Palin ceremony for Dec. 7 at its Final Resolution pay-per-view, according to a news release issued by the company today. TNA president Dixie Carter has offered to fly Palin and her husband to Orlando, Fla., for the event, and the company also has agreed to donate $50,000 to her favorite charity.
TNA will make the formal invitation to Palin on Impact Thursday.
Sure, this is a blatant publicity stunt, but so what? TNA desperately needs to get its name out into the mainstream, and using Palin for that purpose is certainly better for the company’s image than when it did business with NFL miscreant Adam “Pacman” Jones last year.
It seems absurd that Palin would even consider the offer to join Angelina Love, Velvet Sky and Cute Kip in The Beautiful People, but you never know. Who would have believed that Raw could land the presidential candidates?
If Palin declines, perhaps Tina Fey isn't busy on Dec. 7.
