Nope, it’s not The Onion. Sarah Palin quits something halfway through. Again:
Amid diminishing media interest, Sarah Palin has quit her high-profile bus tour halfway through and returned to Alaska with her family, according to RealClearPolitics. The move puts a damper on widespread speculations that Palin’s “One Nation” bus tour… was a precursor to a potential White House bid for 2012. Palin never made it to her scheduled stops in the key primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
RealClearPolitics…reported Wednesday on Palin’s “extended hiatus.” The remaining legs of her trip, according to Scott Conroy, are “in limbo” as “Palin and her family have reverted to the friendly confines of summertime Alaska.”
I’m so shocked! I guess “restoring America” was too hard. I can just see her whining about wanting to go to “real America…”
Y’know, honestly, I think we have Weinergate to thank for this. While yes it sucked away airtime from many other vastly more important stories it also took away Sarah’s soapbox. Once that story got rolling nobody cared about Sarah and her bus (Paul Revere and his bells may have helped as well). If a bus-shaped tree falls in the woods…
According to Greek Mythology humans were created with 4 arms, 4 legs, and a head with 2 faces. Fearing their power Zeus split them into 2 separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives looking for their other half.
