Last call for the Palin Magical History Tour, All Aboard!
This is it folks. It appears that Sarah Palin’s family vacation/campaign tour/publicity stunt is coming to an end. The next to last stop took place yesterday in the cradle of our nation, Boston , Massachusetts. The former ex-quitting half-term governor of Alaska toured the Freedom Trail of historic sites and made stops at the Bunker Hill Monument (site of the Battle of Bunker Hill) and the Old North Church (place from which Paul Revere started his famous ride). The alleged “hockey mom” however, failed to make any mention of the city’s beloved Boston Bruins, who are presently competing in the Stanley Cup Finals. That is quite an oversight when one considers that most every historic statue (or as Palin would say, “statute”) in the city is presently adorned with a black and gold Bruins sweater.
While in Beantown, Palin could not however avoid celebrity impersonator (and Lynnrockets’ pal) Cecilia Thompson. The two came face to face in Boston’s historic North End neighborhood where they briefly hugged before Palin gave marching orders to her clone. She said, “Now you go to all these reporters and you speak for me”.
Palin was also able to do what she does best while in Massachusetts. She ignited a war of words with former Massachusetts governor and current 2012 Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. Although Palin lacks the courage to say whether she will run for the presidency, she is not shy about picking a fight with one of her potential (and dare we say, far better qualified) opponents. Not surprisingly, she criticized the health care reform law which Romney signed into law in Massachusetts and which served as the blueprint for our new national health reform law. The Boston Globe reports that while on Romney’s home turf, Palin told reporters “In my opinion, any mandate coming from government is not a good thing.” She went on to say that the law will be one of the reasons that it “will be a big challenge” for Romney to appeal to Tea Party supporters. “It’s tough for a lot of us independent Americans to accept [the mandate] because we have great faith in the private sector and our own families and our own business men and women making decisions for ourselves, not any level of government telling us what to do.’’
It was no coincidence that Sarah Palin planned her stop in Mitt Romney’s home state on the very day that Romney was in New Hampshire announcing his campaign for the presidency. It is also no coincidence that Palin’s final stop on her bus tour is in the very same New Hampshire which holds the nation’s first primary election. Would it not be swell if Palin and Romney cross paths in the Granite State? It would be interesting to hear what Romney might say about Palin’s “Bridge to Nowhere” or her “death panels” or her decision to quit her job as governor of Alaska after only two years. Oh, to be a fly on the wall.
In honor of the troops, please click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with the song parody.
