Bus Plunge


Since Palin and her team won’t share where the potential candidate is headed, reporters and producers have little choice but to simply stay close to Palin’s bus.

Sarah Palin’s mystery bus tour keeps US media guessing on 2012 bid

Her staff refuses to give details of the tour, leaving reporters and political pundits puzzled over why Palin would announce the bus tour but not disclose the schedule.

Palin has refused to post information about her schedule, leaving reporters scrambling

[MsNBC's Martin Bashir] scolded, “In fact, the whole thing could be in breach of a federal law because the United States Flag Code establishes important rules for the use and display of the stars and stripes, the flag of the United States.”

Reporters … fogged up the glass outside of Famous Famiglia in Manhattan Tuesday, as Sarah Palin and Donald Trump met for pizza.

When asked what Obama thinks of Palin’s stops in Washington, Carney said: “I don’t think he’s paying much attention to that.”

The Palins meet the Griswolds: As others have noted, Sarah Palin’s East Coast bus tour – of which she hasn’t divulged the actual schedule to reporters – seems more like a family summer vacation than any kind of presidential campaign rollout.

“I bet you a dime to a dollar her visits to those areas are not proceeded by courtesy phone calls to the local Republican Party chairman and request they generate volunteers,” Rove said.

And Palin is the “stupid” one?!?

    As I understand the flag laws, they pertain to an actual FLAG, not a depiction of one.

    Wait…I thought all the GOP’s citizen movements were astroturf! Help me, Mr. Soros! I don’t understand! I need more weed and more food stamps!

    So bashir your saying that pMSNBC has violated Federal law and you didnt make a citizens arrest? http://youtu.be/R6V-DXRdB7Y
    I guess you would actually need to be a citizen unless of course your a New Age citizen of the world.
    Go Sarah. You will forever be living rent free in the single living brain cell of the prog media.

    Dear Media – the revolution will not be televised. That is all.

    Do you think it’s possible that somebody gave her a copy of The Art of War?

    She’s still number one in my book.

    Well played, sir.

    Why has she not published her schedule?
    Could it beeee …
    to keep the ThugLeft from being able to use its minions?

    Union-funded bus caravan following Palin in 3..2..1..

    TMI: To heck with the Art of War. I’m convinced she intends to give A Children’s Illustrated Clausewitz to Trigg once it’s complete.

    She’s probably read the Art of War, too, though….

    I could picture a big foam hand with the special finger raised in the back window of her bus– dedicated to the lame stream media— maybe it wouldn’t hurt them to follow her and get a history lesson– she could as them what they know about the history of this country–00000-we’d know who the dumb asses were than I’d betcha–

    18. All warfare is based on deception.

    19. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable;
    when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we
    are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away;
    when far away, we must make him believe we are near.

    20. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder,
    and crush him.

    21. If he is secure at all points, be prepared for him.
    If he is in superior strength, evade him.

    22. If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to
    irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.

    23. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest.
    If his forces are united, separate them.

    24. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where
    you are not expected.

    25. These military devices, leading to victory,
    must not be divulged beforehand.

    Ahhh, now I see Obama’s strategy.
    First, we lull the commies and islammies into a false sense of comfort with America’s feigned military cutbacks, moral weakness, overextension of forces, leadership vacuum, addiction to a nonsensical media themes, internal political divisions, economic malaise, bad faith with allies, and appeasement of enemies. Yeahhhh.
    Then, we … uhm, then we …

    Run, Sarah run. Sarah Palin was so successful as a governor, she graduated early “Bitter Quitter”, she real is a “Dan Quayle” in heels. She clearly loves “dishing it out” but real can’t take it because she loves playing the victim card. Poor thing she fail as a VP candidate (her lie that her daughter was engaged was such a farce), her stand-up comic fiasco on the Jay Leno Show, please, her TV show canceled after declining rating, I guess her perpetual run for the White House is the only thing she can look forward to, but since she is a coward she will only throw small minded rocks, poor thing. Since we already had an idiot “W” that caused our current economic debacle, America knows not to trust the GOP fools who flaunt the idiocy.

    You know what this current crowd of GOP liars want is to turn the United Sates into China, where only a few giant corporations run things, they own the factories, that apartments, the grocery stores, the gas stations, the newspaper and magazine publications, the radio stations, the television stations and you pay them and they get all the benefits, and if you do not like it go jump off cliff. Well some Chinese workers seeing that as individuals that they cannot progress have done just that by committing suicide. The current crowd of GOP liars want to abolish Medicare from the elderly, they want to abolish a woman’s right to choose and have control over her own body, they want to abolish collective bargaining rights, and on top of it all they want to blame the poor, the middle class and the public sector workers for a recession that the GOP created, while their beloved “Fat cats” continue to pay themselves exorbitant salaries, bonuses, fringe benefits. Yes this is the GOP “Radical Right-Wing Social Engineering” that they dream about. The win in New York was the beginning but the next will be Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and later the other states of our nation. So run, Sarah run.

    I love the troll’s line about “right wing social engineering” (I’m seeing that line more and more). The Right is all about leaving everyone alone. Laissez-faire and all that.

    .“Two Rules for Success: 1) Never tell people everything you know.”

    She is doing a real big wedgie to the Lame Stream Media. They just HATE that!!! Bwhahahahaaa. And Bashir coming out with what he said you know they’re all graping for straws. She knows how to do it. But even more important, she is a sincere lady. Just like Rush has said about wht made him such a hit is that people said they started listening to him and he was saying how they felt. Same with Sarah. America is sick a tired of freeking Liberals and the nanny, elitist attitude. The womb to the tomb. They’ve had it.

    And they want to be sure that some one who runs against Barry is going to beat him. I think Sarah would make a great Senator–she did buy a home in Arizona and Kyle is retiring. Or she can continue to be ‘king maker’ and be the voice people want to be heard to their reps. Shes doing the best job at what she is ding right now and when the Left just hers her voice, they crumble like the morning sun did to Dracula!! Muwahahahahahhahhaaaaa!

    I’ll bet she hasn’t contacted the local Republican Party apparatus for volunteers, either. Why would she need them? She can find plenty of volunteers out of her own supporters, and that way she isn’t beholden to the GOP.

    As far as why she isn’t disclosing her schedule, I think the people upthread are right. This way she can connect with people without having to battle hordes of protestors. Note that you aren’t seeing pictures of her talking to the supporters she’s meeting along the way. If she was surrounded with protestors – or even if some few of them could somehow be shoehorned into the same shot with her – you’d see that in the news every day!
