Look, it’s Gov. Sarah Palin at the porn show


The fact that the Consumer Electronics Show runs at the same time as the Adult Entertainment Expo is always fodder for jokes among CES attendees.
Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer said company co-founder and Chairman Bill Gates gave him some advice for his first CES keynote speech.
“Bill said, ‘Make sure, Steve, you’re at CES, not that ‘other’ convention in Las Vegas,” he said in his Jan. 7 speech. Chuckle chuckle.
Yes, it is bizarre to see all the scantily clad, surgically enhanced women walking around the Sands Convention Center during CES.
I stopped by the 2009 Adult Entertainment Expo to ask some executives if the recession was hurting the porn industry. Short answer: not really. Sure, DVD sales are down, but business is shifting to the Internet.
Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild chief executive Joe Francis recently called for a $5 billion federal bailout of the adult entertainment industry. But they were really seeking publicity rather than federal funds.
Walking through the AEE exhibit area, I spotted the actress who got her 15 minutes of fame portraying Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in a porn movie called “Who's Nailin Paylin?”. The misspelled name apparently protects the producers, Hustler, from lawsuits. (TheSuperficial.com ran a clean clip from the movie. And let’s just say that Oscar won’t be calling.)
The actress (Lisa Ann) was dressed as the 2008 Republican candidate for vice president and was signing autographs and taking photos with fans.
I’ll bet she’s hoping Palin stays in the public eye. Sequel money, baby, sequel money.
