Half-term Governor of Alaska is better than Hillary Clinton, says Sarah Palin. In probably her most desperate plea for attention, she explains that her bus was wrapped in the Constitution and reporters were all up in that, chasing her down. In contrast, Hills is only riding in a “Scooby Van.” Palin is much cooler than Hillary,…

I was woefully unaware that Palin started the trend of touring on a bus. lol

Ah, I love that movie.

The Charlestown Chiefs also traveled by bus. By the way, who owns the Chiefs?

Sarah Palin has a journalism degree. How, I don’t know.

Palin was known for three things Beauty Pageants, Basketball and having a communications journalism degree. Couric didn’t throw her a fastball, she pitched a beach ball. Maybe she did get a mail order degree. I’m only joking, she went to 5 colleges in 6 years.
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 12:48 pm
Let’s face it, a communications major is not exactly rocket science. It’s the major chosen by a lot of “student-athletes.”
Dwendt44 April 18th, 2015 at 7:37 pm
If you can stand up in front of a crowd, you’re in.
fredoandme April 18th, 2015 at 1:30 pm
still have that $100 that says she doesn’t have any kind of degree. there’s absolutely no evidence of it, intellectually or physically.
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 1:37 pm
Wiki says she got a bachelors in communications from U of Idaho, after going to five different colleges. She got a “Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award” (it should be distinguished alumna, since alumni is plural, but that’s just the grammarian in me talking) from North Idaho College (community college). She must be so proud. I wonder who else has received the award.
fredoandme April 18th, 2015 at 2:07 pm
the basis of my statement is palin’s own book, the part about her college days. there’s no picture of her at a graduation. in her book, there IS a picture that is supposedly of her, wearing a cap and gown, holding a diploma case and throwing a cap into the air, in a parking lot. don’t be fooled. these pictures are actually of her sister, molly, who did graduate, and looks enough like palin to fool most people.
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 2:21 pm
Assuming the stuff on Wiki is correct, if she only went to Idaho the second time for 16 months, long enough to get her degree, it wouldn’t surprise me that she didn’t attend the graduation. It also wouldn’t surprise me to find out she didn’t get a degree at all. The only sources to her college info are various internet articles, nothing from any of the schools she supposedly attended.
KatieAnnieOakley April 18th, 2015 at 11:32 pm
Correct. The woman photographed / represented as Palin is blonde, and the main color in her mortarboard tassel is gold / yellow.
The University of Idaho’s Medical Technology tassels are designated as MAIZE – as in, DEEP YELLOW:
And the designated tassel color for the College of Sciences is GOLDEN YELLOW:
Finally, Palin’s BLOND sister Molly IS a dental hygienist.
Palin’s tassel – either for Journalism or Communications – should have been CRIMSON – but as can plainly be seen, the tassel below IS a light yellow:
The photo below IS NOT PALIN. See the tassel? Its MOLLY.
tpartynitwit April 20th, 2015 at 10:52 am
She went to five colleges to acquire it. The woman is unstoppable!
Suzanne McFly April 18th, 2015 at 10:42 am
OMG, I read a few of the comments on her FB and people were saying stupid things like… I want a Palin Carson ticket I do not care which is V P or President That would be fun to see how the Lib’s would handle that attack Carson and they would be the Racist Try again to hit Sarah they would then open up Hilary for open season on her …and…
Sarah palin for president…and…
I wish she d run again. I d vote for her…and…
love ya girl, keep them guessing
Obewon April 18th, 2015 at 2:38 pm
Comedians also “want a Palin Carson ticket I do not care which is V P”
Suzanne McFly April 18th, 2015 at 7:47 pm
Whoever would vote for them needs to have their library cards revoked.
Larry Schmitt April 19th, 2015 at 1:39 pm
Them: “Duh, what’s a liberry?”
Hirightnow April 18th, 2015 at 3:25 pm
It might work: we’d be too busy laughing to vote!
OldLefty April 18th, 2015 at 11:37 am
Palin: Unlike Hillary, My Bus Is ‘Wrapped In The Constitution’
Have you given us ANY reason to believe that The Constitution is anymore than a meaningless accessory for you?
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 12:45 pm
She knows the constitution as well as those self-professed “christians” know the bible.
fahvel April 18th, 2015 at 11:52 am
she spelled bust wrong – dumb broad rides with it all day and can’t spell.
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 12:46 pm
I would bet she didn’t actually write it, but her followers and toadies are just as dumb as she is, and if her name is on it, she’s responsible for it.
Dwendt44 April 18th, 2015 at 12:02 pm
Her bus may be wrapped in the Constitution, but I’ll bet she hasn’t read it.
ShelleysLeg April 19th, 2015 at 7:36 am
I’ll pay attention to her ONLY if she proves she can spell ‘constitution’! Hopefully you can tell I know she can’t.
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 12:48 pm
Look at those crazy Manson eyes.
Hirightnow April 18th, 2015 at 3:24 pm
No need to be insulting by comparing one of America’s citizens with a crazy, manipulative psychopath!
(Charlie was born in America, right?)
granpa.usthai April 18th, 2015 at 4:34 pm
there is no substantial proof that the Alaskan Shriller was ever born (may be why nobody knows who/what she is (itself included) and may explain why the selection of horrid DU wigs and the constant 10,000 points of irregular flashing lights that are theoretical thought waves.
granpa.usthai April 18th, 2015 at 4:28 pm
the dork DU wig kinda sorta compliments them – maybe – I think?
but, then again, I’m not the hairdresser who hates her as much as her political adviser.
Mike Butkus Jr. April 18th, 2015 at 12:49 pm
Am I the only one who reads Palin’s quotes in Tina Fey’s voice?
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 12:54 pm
It’s hard not to do. It’s like if you’re a certain age, and you hear the William Tell Overture, what do you think of? Some guy shooting an apple off his kid’s head? No, Hiyo Silver.

“a calm clambake on a cool New Hampshire night…”
granpa.usthai April 18th, 2015 at 4:26 pm
probably about like a relaxing week-end evening at the Dew Drop Inn.
Drunken rebel yelling knife flashing with gun shots sorta night out?
No way out April 18th, 2015 at 2:38 pm
She’e mistaking that for Lycra and that’s not her bus it’s Duane Wade
KABoink_after_wingnut_hacker April 18th, 2015 at 2:44 pm
I see a resemblance with that particular screen capture of $arrah and it may explain a lot…
Pick6 April 19th, 2015 at 7:42 am
Hey, isn’t that Mrs. Newt?
Bunya April 20th, 2015 at 3:54 pm
I thought the same thing!
Obewon April 18th, 2015 at 2:45 pm
Grifter calling any remaining donors. Televising the next Palinbrawl could boost her standing!
tpartynitwit April 20th, 2015 at 10:50 am
It took $14.000 of the rubes’ money to commission that constitution decal on her trailer.
rg9rts April 18th, 2015 at 3:52 pm
She didn’t explain that that was the toilet paper on board
granpa.usthai April 18th, 2015 at 4:23 pm
truth be known – I have no idea who this creature wearing the dork DU wig is, but I’m willing to take some guesses:
an escaped mental patient from the mental health hut on the isle of Kong?
a traveling alien that forgot who they were and/or going and drifts around aimlessly – lost hiding in a constitutional wrapped bus?
some dittzy lipstick totin’ train driver with a horrid DU that crashed and burned the teabagger express back in 08?
tracey marie April 18th, 2015 at 4:53 pm
One poster on FB said she wants a Carson/Palin ticket and does not care the order….Oh Please please please please make it happen!
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 4:55 pm
It would have the entire country shaking their heads in wonder at the monumental stupidity every time one of them opened its mouth. But it would provide years worth of laughs that would live forever on Youtube.
tracey marie April 18th, 2015 at 4:56 pm
I would love to watch them out jesus each other
Mike April 18th, 2015 at 5:25 pm
Hey Sarah Lil Kim was wondering who stole her wig…give it back.
Warman1138 April 18th, 2015 at 5:27 pm
That photo of her makes my skin crawl.
Larry Schmitt April 18th, 2015 at 5:28 pm
Those letters behind her? That’s what we’re all saying, like Bill the Cat: AK!
dave-dr-gonzo April 18th, 2015 at 10:32 pm
Ack! Thpfffft! ACK!!!
labman57 April 18th, 2015 at 9:00 pm
“I can see Russia from my bus!”
The ‘Whining Wannabe from Wasilla’ … desperately craving attention and arrogantly believing that she is at the center of the political universe .. engages in yet another online “petty party”.
dave-dr-gonzo April 18th, 2015 at 9:48 pm
… and the former Alaska governor is even using the Bill of Rights as mud flaps! Classy, as always.
William April 19th, 2015 at 1:12 am
I’m important because reporters asked me stuff.
Chris April 19th, 2015 at 8:31 am
A post like that would give a freshman Rhetoric 101 class TA nightmares for weeks.
“How do I talk her down without crushing her spirit?”, he asks his faculty advisor.
eyelashviper April 19th, 2015 at 10:55 am
If you’ve never been to Palin’s NeverNeverLand, take a peek…..these folks are so whacked that they almost make Sarah look reasonable….almost.
Mike April 19th, 2015 at 4:03 pm
Been there…it’s frightening.
Recently, I was in line at a restaurant when one of Sarah’s fans tried striking up a conversation with us. She rattled on for a few minutes about how great she is and we listened politely until she popped the big question…”Who are you voting for…” she asked us and continued adding “…I hope your not an Obama voter…”
I confessed I didn’t think I’d be voting for Obama this time around and added I’d be open to a woman…her eyes lit up as she told me to “…hang in there, we’ll get Sarah to the WH someday.”
I didn’t want to tell her the woman I was considering voting for was Warren or that the thought of Sarah getting east of the Mississippi scared the crap out of me. I looked at her and her 80 year old husband in a scooter and wondered if she knew she was nothing more than a useful idiot to the repugs and what she really represented was one of the 47% they despised.
whatthe46 April 19th, 2015 at 4:24 pm
i bet you were chomping at the bits wanting to say something to rock her world. you’re strong man.
Mike April 19th, 2015 at 4:40 pm
Nothing I could have said would have changed her mind one bit…I kinda felt sorry for her.
whatthe46 April 19th, 2015 at 5:05 pm
yeah. i would think to hear her would be very confusing. like, why?
ExPFCWintergreen April 19th, 2015 at 11:42 am
Sarah Palin is still alive?
William April 19th, 2015 at 3:12 pm
Sarah Palin is still alive?
…and thanks to 70’s technology she will be a part of human history…forever.
Mike April 19th, 2015 at 4:04 pm
Makes no difference what your bus is wrapped in if it’s not wrapped tight…and you honey, are not wrapped that tight.
whatthe46 April 19th, 2015 at 4:34 pm
damn mccain for letting this bat guano crazy loon out.
