The Difference Between Sarah Palin And Me

When I went on a week-long tour last week that was not a publicity seeking tour, I rented this at the Columbus airport:

But when Sarah Palin embarked on a tour that was “not a publicity seeking tour,” she rented this:

Just sayin’.

I feel so bad for Sarah. Can you imagine showing up to rent your car and all that Enterprise has left is a hideous bus. How mortifying.

I personally will not vote for Sarah Palin, I prefer my choices not quit halfway through their term, but I see no difference between this tour of her and that of Hillary Clinton’s in 1999

What a joke, albeit a sick one, this demonizer of almost everyone (that would be about 80% of the REAL PEOPLE/REAL Ãœ.S. CITIZENS)scurries around in a ¨One Nation¨ painted bus– I wonder if she acutally rides inside of it or simply darts out of prearranged Ladies Room stops at filling stations along the route after spending cozy nights and all-you-can-eat breakfast at one of the Marriott Courtyard Hotels? So many folks to deceive/receive, so little time.

You should have asked for the “One Nation” upgrade!

I’m assuming, also, that you did not wear red pumps to tour Ft. McHenry (or Gettysburg)?

Yes, Sarah did. I saw the photos.

Amicus, you shouldn’t be too quick with your assumptions. ;-)

“I personally will not vote for Sarah Palin, I prefer my choices not quit halfway through their term, . . . “

And yet, unwittingly, her quitting was probably the best decision she ever made while she was governor to benefit the people of Alaska.

and this has to do with gay issues because…?

But Jim, do you have a husband, five kids and a grandkid to haul around? Jeez, kids can wrack up laundry faster than you can say chickpea. And you don’t know that half that bus isn’t full of her unsold books she’s trying to peddle. She’s got mouths to feed. And maybe she’s like Brad and Anjolina…a nanny for each of the kids and the grandkid.

As an employee of Fox, she’s legally forbidden from talking to any other media outlet. Of course, instead of just admitting that, she has to go until a whole BS Maverick spiel, which as usual, only fools the credulous.

Jerry – Charitably assuming that a bus is a logistical desirability, how does the livery of that particular vehicle support a “no publicity” statement?


June 1st, 2011

Well, Jim, you wouldn’t have been able to stealth onto the Liberty University campus in something more, shall we say, ostentatious.


June 1st, 2011

So, you know, Jim, I’m just curious.

If you HAD been on a publicity seeking tour, what would you have driven? Maybe a pink bus with a giant high-heeled shoe on top? But that’s been done. Tell us, tell us!

Or maybe we can come with some ideas for you . . .

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.
