The world found out today that Sarah Palin had filed for trademarks on the names Sarah Palin® and Bristol Palin® in 2010. Did she trademark the phrase "mama grizzly?" Can you no longer say that you, too can see Russia from your house? The twitter-verse had some things to say.
The Atlantic's Joshua Green noted that she was hardly the first.
Herman Cain did the tradema®k thing first
Brian Beutler had some suggestions for her complete trademarked title.
How about: Forme® Half-Term Governo® Sarah Palin® ?
Governor Palin (a parody account) thought the Wire was mis-attributing her.
@TheAtlanticWire - Actually, per the USPTO, please refer to me now as "Gov. Sarah Palin®, America's Greatest Living Legend."
And then there's Reuters with the cold, hard facts of the trademark world.
Sarah Palin trademark application refused - for now http://t.co/i5CSxc6
Guy Endore-Kaiser brought up some general good points about Palin's electability.
