How do we get on this list?

Sarah Palin’s political action committee spent some $3,800 in the past quarter on “gift bag items” from an Alaskan company called Indian Valley Meats, according to SarahPAC’s latest FEC reports.

Indian Valley, according to its (drool-worthy) web site, sells gift boxes full of Alaskan meats: smoked salmon, caribou sausage, musk ox jerky, reindeer hot dogs, trail sticks, honey mustard sauce and more.Palin apparently spent the nearly $4,000 on gifts for supporters at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference back in April. According to a report in Business Week, more than 3,000 delegates walked into Palin’s speech to find “an Alaska snack from SarahPAC”– Indian Valley’s teriyaki sticks with caribou meat.

The teriyaki sticks run $22 a pound, meaning Palin may have bought 173 pounds worth of caribou meat for the SRLC.

Which is awesome.

Indian Valley (which did not return calls for comment) offers a whole selection of Alaskan deliciousness. Gift boxes — from the “Alaskan Favorite” to the “Alaskan Sampler” range from $35 to $50, plus shipping, and include a veritable cornucopia of Alaskan meats.
