The Difference Between Sarah Palin And Me

Jim Burroway

May 31st, 2011

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?

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

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 . . .
