The bids by Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol Palin to trademark their names and images have cleared a major hurdle and should soon be approved for the potential presidential candidate and her Dancing With the Stars child.
Sources close to the process tell our Suzi Parker that nobody challenged Sarah Palin's trademark application. Today is the deadline to do so. They also say that Bristol Palin's went unchallenged. That deadline passed June 10.
Each should receive their trademark within three months, said the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
You know my assumption is that the Palins are hoping that they can control negative stories about them, and of course earn a buck, by controlling how their name is used.
However if they were hoping to keep ME from writing critical things about them then they are SOL.
That is unless Sarah also plans on trademarking "Granny Grifter," "Snowdrift Snooki," "The Grizzled Mama," and "Klondike Kardashian."
As for Bristol? Well I think "Brittle," or "Bristle," or "The Chin" should suffice to give people a heads up as to who I am talking about.
But hey, nice try!
