    Default Too many Hawaiians in Hawaii for Sarah Palin?

    Sam Tanenhaus' New Yorker review of Sarah Palin's book, as well as another book about the former governor, contains this nugget:

    Palin, though notoriously ill-travelled outside the United States, did journey far to the first of the four colleges she attended, in Hawaii. She and a friend who went with her lasted only one semester. “Hawaii was a little too perfect,” Palin writes. “Perpetual sunshine isn’t necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year-old Alaska girls.” Perhaps not. But Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to [Scott] Conroy and [Shushannah] Walshe [authors of 'Sarah From Alaska']. 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.” [Italics Mine]

    Why--and readers should weigh in--has this gotten absolutely no media attention?Palin Question Of The Day | The New Republic

    God, she really is a fucking idiot. Minority equals unglamorous? Has the moose bitch looked in a mirror?

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

    And it seems like Palin's father just nonchalantly admitted that she's a racist.

    ^^Yup. I guess burning crosses and Klan robes are a fixture at the Heath family reunions.

    No. But his grandmother is a member of one of the Alaskan tribes.

    When I visited, there certainly were a lot of beautiful Asian and Polynesian women there. Depending on which area you lived, you could be a minority caucasian person. However, I don't think that would hold true for people who are living on university campuses there.

    Well she is still a racist dumb jealous bitch and I HATE the name of her book, "Going Rogue"..shit I HATE it with a passion when I hear it spoken.

    rogue:
    An unprincipled, deceitful, and unreliable person; a scoundrel or rascal
    Vicious and solitary. Used of an animal, especially an elephant
    Large, destructive, and anomalous or unpredictable
    what does she mean 'going' rogue-bitch was always there and never left.

    Only an idiot like Palin would go to Hawaii and be shocked by the number of Asians and Pacific Islanders there. But Palin would probably be shocked to discover that there are actually a large number of Hispanics in Mexico, too.

    If someone brings this up to her, she can claim she was 'misquoted' or blame it on being young, dumb, and full of it.

    She probably thinks they speak Latin in Latin America.

    And yes, she's a racist pig.

    You can put lipstick on a racist pig, and hit her with a hockey stick, and she'll still be a racist pig.
