Raw Story:

Report: Sarah Palin quits bus tour halfway through, retreats to Alaska

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, which launched on Memorial Day, 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, which originally broke the story about the bus tour, 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.”

Gee, Sarah didn’t want to spend the entire summer trapped in her tour bus while being chased by the paparazzi media. But summer has barely started and she could easily return to the road one or more times before Labor Day.

Sarah tweets:



Her career has been declared dead more times than Jason Voorhees but the PDS brigades keep doing their premature victory dances.

*Sigh* Reports of Tour Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated
by Sarah Palin on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at 4:14pm
Imagine our surprise when reading media reports today that the “One Nation Tour” has been cancelled. Why didn’t anyone tell me? Oh, wait, that’s because it hasn’t been cancelled. (Good ol’ media… you never cease to amaze!)

As I said myself at the end of the east coast leg of the tour, the summer is long, and I’m looking forward to hitting the open road again. The coming weeks are tight because civic duty calls (like most everyone else, even former governors get called up for jury duty) and I look forward to doing my part just like every other Alaskan.

I wouldn’t think it to be such a slow news day that, what with numerous wars and serious economic woes concerning Americans, a bus is driving news stories today. The next leg of the tour continues when the time comes. In the meantime, no one should jump to conclusions – certainly not the media with their long track record of getting things wrong or just making things up.

      LOL! See my post below. The ordinary conventional pol would have made a prior announcement, so the press wouldn’t speculate. Sarah, I think, ENJOYS just doing as she damn well pleases, waiting for the press to hyperventilate, and then raising a facebook eyebrow and telling them to calm down.

      It makes them look so childish.

      • ralphb says:

        I also like doing what I damn well please, when I want to do it. She should enjoy making those asshats look like what they are. They’ve earned it. 🙂

  3. WMCB says:

    I think she enjoys seeing media heads explode, and I hope she keeps doing it.

    She and Todd were sitting up late one night in their old comfy sweats, having a nice bottle of wine and shooting the shit, and Todd says offhand-like, “Think we should fuck with their heads?” Sarah laughs and says “Like what?” He says, “I dunno, what would jerk their chain and make them dance like puppets scrambling to find an explanation…..?”

    Sarah thinks a minute, then almost spews her wine as an idea occurs to her: “Oooo, oooo, I know! Let’s stop the bus for a month or two and come back to Alaska to relax and do some fishing. With no warning or explanation!” Todd starts grinning, “Oooooo, that’s a good one…”

    Some “diminishing media interest.” Just two days ago, Palin was trying to steal the thunder from Huntsman’s presidential announcement. Now, she’s irrelevant. It’s enough to give you whiplash.

    Heh, finally caught Whitey.

    Legendary Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger, who has been on the run for more than a decade, was arrested Wednesday in Santa Monica, multiple law enforcement sources told The Times.

    Bulger, 81, has been the subject of several books and was the inspiration for “The Departed,” a 2006 Martin Scorsese film staring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson.

    Any thoughts on “Gun Walker”. Is it a real scandal?

    • ralphb says:

      Good question. It sure looks like a real scandal. Maybe about to get the head of the ATF anyway.

    OT (or not so much) this was linked as Post of the Day at legal insurrection:

    The button shown – funny Hillary pic with the words “I Told You So – Hillary 2012” made me crack up.

    The post is pretty good, saying she should do a primary challenge. I wish.

  29. WMCB says:

    Oh, great. Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone on TV today, opining that one reason he’d like Michelle Bachmann to win the nomination is because they’d make great porn films about her.

    I shit you not.

    “Actually, yeah, I’m actually kind of rooting for her to win the nomination, because I can’t wait to see the porn movies that they make,” Taibbi said. “Bachmann-inspired films are going to be great.”

    “I mean, who didn’t see ‘Nailin’ Palin’ – that was classic cinema,” he continued..”

    One of my cats got mauled to death by a dog last night. What a lovely way to start the day.

    • votermom says:

      That’s awful. 😦

      WTH kind of wild dogs are in your neighborhood?

      • myiq2xu says:

        I found her in a neighbor’s front yard but I don’t think that’s where she was mauled. She may have been attacked in someone’s back yard.

    • Three Wickets says:

      Sorry to hear that. Coyote got one of our rabbits last year. Cycle of nature, or something. It’s hard.

    • Trap the dog. Skin ’em. And cook ’em up. That will teach him.

      What? Too far? I can never tell.

    • WMCB says:

      So sorry, hon. 😦 I have 2 greyhounds who will go after squirrels/cats/possums in my backyard – it’s the nature of the breed But knowing that, I walk outside BEFORE I let them out, scan the yard, clap loudly, etc to scare off any critters. Then I let them out. They did get a squirrel once, but I try to not let it happen.

      Oddly, they are completely fine with my indoor cat – he rules the roost. He can run around like a maniac doing “cat crazy zoomies”, and they ignore him, and they back away if he even bats a paw at them.. But something small and fuzzy running across the yard or along the fence OUTDOORS triggers chase instincts.

    • Sorry to hear. That completely sucks of course.

    • Anonymous says:

      Ugh…..so sorry about your cat. That is a horrible way to lose one.

    • Karma says:

      Ugh….sorry about your cat. That is a horrible way to lose one.

      We lost one like that thanks to a neighbor who would neglect and ignore her dogs. She had to get rid of three dogs in two groups. All aggressive biters who would escape her yard and terrorize people and cats.

    • ralphb says:

      Very sad news. Sorry to hear it.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Thank you to everyone who expressed your sympathy and support.

    Its my cat thats a danger to any dog who might happen to venture into the yard. He’s a cougar in a kitty’s body. I’ve been bloodied more than once by him.
    I gotta add that its not only the media touting the palin retreat to Alaska. I’ve seen the meme mimiced across more than one blog.
    Man, with all the other shit they should be talkin about…..

  32. Karma says:

    Tweety was on Bill Maher the other week all tingly about Bachmann. Forgot who pointed this trend out of the msm getting all excited about her over Palin. But saw this and found it interesting that Maher was going with the old play book and Tweety rolls with the new one.

    http://www.rawstory.com/rawreplay/2011/06/bill-maher-michele-bachmann-is-a-crazy-girl-with-mean-ideas/

    • myiq2xu says:

      A few months ago I noticed that the media suddenly started to treat Bachmann differently – as a serious contender rather than a kook.

      It seemed to me they were building her up as the alternate vagina-candidate to Sarah Palin (because you can only have one vagina-candidate at a time)

      I figured they were building her up so they could tear her down after Sarah was defeated.

      • Karma says:

        I thought it was either you or Votermom. And sure enough, there is Tweety living up to your observation. The whole table took a double take.

        • votermom says:

          It’s like that cell phone commercial about going on 4G so you’re not the last to know. Maher had better upgrade so he gets the new corporate imperatives quicker.

    “U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is questioning the priorities of lawmakers criticizing the U.S. intervention in Libya.

    She’s asking bluntly, “Whose side are you on?” ”

      Oops my bad…I quoted a different article…but linked this one which had more info.

    • ralphb says:

      I’m on the side of the War Powers Act, which I believe is the law of the land. Whose side is she on?

      • myiq2xu says:

        I’m pretty sure Congress would give Obama the thumbs up on Libya – he just doesn’t want to ask them for approval.

        He probably thinks it would be a bad precedent.

        • ralphb says:

          The Senate is a definite Yea, but I’m not sure about the House. They look like they are going to try and cut off funds for it. I wish them luck.

        • ralphb says:

          By the way, even Bush got Congressional approval for his actions. Obama is attempting to set a new precedent by not asking.

      • Karma says:

        I completely agree about Congressional approval. But the cynic in me has watched Congress release their power to the Executive time and again, and wonder if this is just the same. And I doubt TPTB want Libya shut down.

        However, this is the sharpest elbow thrown in this whole thing. And just prior to her testifying in front of Congress. It would seem she wants the debate too.

    HotAir on a potential Rick Perry run.

    The best sign that he’s running, perhaps: A whole new round of rumors that he’s gay being spread by his opponents. Ace wonders how the media rationalizes running stuff like that without any evidence, but we already know how from the Tucson shootings. First someone says, “The shooter must have been inspired by Palin’s crosshairs map,” then that non-fact starts to churn because it’s simply irresistible to the media as a capital-N Narrative, and then when it turns out there’s nothing to it, the coverage shifts to whether the Narrative is a political problem for its target even though it’s not true. Report the facts, and if the facts aren’t there for you, report the misperception of those facts because, hey, that’s a political fact on the ground too. “Will gay rumors hurt Perry on the trail?” thus becomes a handy way of spreading those rumors without fully taking responsibility for spreading them. Sleazy, but as I say, we’ve seen this before.
