Sarah Palin Hawaii
Thrilla from Wasilla Update

The New Yorker magazine reviews Going Rogue: an American Life and the popularity of Sarah Palin.  A nutty little tidbit comes from an interview with Sarah’s father, Chuck Heath.  He explains why his daughter only attended college for one semester in Hawaii:

According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: ‘They were a minority type thing and it wasn’t glamorous, so she came home’.”

In Going Rogue, Sarah gives an entirely different reason for leaving and puts a much better spin on her college exit strategy:

Hawaii was a little too perfect.  Perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year-old Alaska girls.”

Sarah says the final college of the four she attended was her favorite.   That’s the University of Idaho.

I guess seeing Asia from her house or whatever didn’t endear the people.  Just weird.

    • Hi, dinky! You may be on to something.

      Boy, her dad didn’t do her any favors with the candor, eh? Just threw her right under the bus!

  1. you can’t see hawaii from her house, so it can’t be important.

    this is my favorite part of the article you linked to:

    She certainly accumulated mileage: the distance between Wasilla and Juneau is five hundred and sixty-five miles. But the sense of moral or intellectual progress is altogether absent.

  2. “Perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year-old Alaska girls”

    Uh huh — because that kid was completely in line while in the land of the midnight sun … Palin should be more careful with her alibis or she’s likely to TRIPP all over them.

  3. “Hawaii was a little too perfect. Perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year-old Alaska girls.”

    This of course begs the question, “What *is*?”

    Actually, I just noticed something — she’s shifting blame. It’s not that *she* crapped out in Hawaii — it was the sun’s fault. If it was for the darn sun, she woulda been summa sumthinorother, no sh*t.

    I wonder what her excuse for screwing up Idaho that first time was, ‘cuz it’s certainly not the sun. The dark? The moon? The meth?

    I’m thinkin’ the meth.
