ThunderBall Films is successfully putting together the movie production of Escape from Paradise and has received a new LOI (Letter of Intent) from actress Bai Ling who starred with Richard Gere in the film Red Cross.

This includes a commitment from a CPA firm who does tax credit financing in Ireland, a possible location to film, as part of the package needed for investors – along with the CPA firm’s commitment to apply for and finance the tax credits if ThunderBall does shoot in Ireland and what portion of the budget they would provide.

“I always remind people from outside our state that there’s plenty of room for all Alaska’s animals – right next to the mashed potatoes.”

“Nucular!”

Euthanasia – Gee, I got nothing against them Chinese kids.

John McCain’s butt fetish was OK, with me – but hands off Bristol!

John McCain’s boob fetish was OK, with me – but hands off Bristol!

In a fit of jealous rage, “itchy fingers” John McCain threatened to sue over the allegations in the National Enquirer that I had a long affair with Brad Hanson, my husband’s business partner. Gosh, all of Hanson’s affairs were limited to my husband.

I did not pose for that nude painting of me – I posed for the photo.

Gee, I would never bow to a foreign leader – ladies curtsy.

“They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan.”

“If you want real job growth, cut capital gains taxes and slay the death tax once and for all.”

“If Heath Insurance Reform Passes, my parents or my baby will have to face Obama’s Death Panel.”

“I’m like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I’m like, don’t let me miss the open door. Show me where the open door is.”

Hey, my husband, Tod, did not mis-speak – he never speaks.

Gosh, would I ever divorce Tod? – Hell no! He’s an iron dog in bed.

Golly, even his wood is iron!

Aw shucks, what were my reasons for leaving office? – I got eight million reasons with the book – he he.

On Obama’s Nobel Prize: “Two weeks into office and he’s already nominated?  That’s premature.”

Yes, I think the tea party movement is “beautiful.” I would love to join them in Boston.

On running for President: “If people will have me, I will.” (To which Willow replied: “That’d be cool,” a sentiment echoed by her younger sister, Piper, 8.)

In 2012, my opponent in for President will be Hillary. Obama will be playing golf.

“In fact, if you think about it the administrative experience was more than Joe Biden had, more than our President Barack Obama had.”

“There have been lots and lots of offers in these last couple of months especially coming our way, some bizarre things.”

Levi should keep his Levis on, and, yes, he is invited for Thanksgiving.
