Sarah Palin invited to appear on TNA Wrestling

Some Political Wrestling news for levity:
Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling has announced that it is formally inviting Alaska governor and former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin to become an honorary member of “The Beautiful People,” the elite group of TNA Knockouts led by Angelina Love and Velvet Sky...

TNA will present Gov. Palin with a $50,000 check at “Final Resolution” made out to the charity of her choice, or will make the donation to the youth hockey association in her native Wasilla, Alaska.

Whilst it may seem unlikely that Palin would appear, the wrestling community has been a credible avenue for Politics. John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama all appeared on wrestling programming during their Presidential campaigns. Wrestlers played a big part in "Get Out the Vote" campaigns and have been actively patriotic in supporting the Troops.

With the continued burial by the GOP's elite, Sarah Palin could further shore up her base by appealing to the populist wrestling crowd. The wrestling audience is not too dissimilar to the red-meat audience John McCain effectively captured at the Sturgis Bike Rally during his Presidential Campaign.
