Governor Moose Drool’s fake bus tour

Once again, Sarhoid Palin proves to be an idiot.

Sarah Palin arrived in North Carolina Sunday by way of Asheville. She was slated to have a much-touted dinner with Franklin Graham and his father Billy. While this is a video made by a fan (so pardon the drippiness) it does provide a good view of the plane she arrived on…and the call number. You may also see some “interesting” dynamics at play:

“Linda, Thought I would let you know. The plane Sarah flew in to Asheville had the N number 262SP. The SP does not stand for Sarah Palin but the plane is owned by Samaritans Purse. I checked it out at the FAA registry. Wonder if that plane is being used at Rochester and other book signing destinations? Samaritan donations being put to good use to haul Palin’s carcass around.”

As if that was not interesting enough, he wrote back later:

Tried to check the flight activity for this airplane (N262SP) at The flight activity for this plane is blocked by the owner. Guess he doesn’t want anyone to know where he is flying. This is a good site to track an airplane’s activity. Might come in handy for checking the use of AK state airplanes.

Yup, especially those Alaska planes now leased by Samaritan’s Purse up here.

It seems that one must apply to have their plane’s schedule made “private” and in doing so, a reason must be provided. I’d love to see the reason Franklin Graham gave for blocking access.

Somehow in Palin’s incurious mind, being self assured = qualified. Her own followers can’t pin point exactly why she would be a good leader or what her specific policies would be and are as incurious as she:

Mad Magazine has a great bit on her. Blunder Woman, fighting imaginary death panels & being a quitter:

Canadian comedians have fooled her yet again, making her look like a huge idiot:

Despite all this, watch the line on Dec. 6th when the forecast of flakes descend upon 41st and Louise. Thanks heaps McCain for that whole “America First” crock. She’s a phoney, a fake storefront. I thank Heaven above daily that she wasn’t a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

Someone should stake out the airport to watch that Palin bus fly in. If the Argus or KELO was on the ball they would be out there with cameras.

BTW, the plane’s owner’s cannot block its identity from flightwise when it’s in motion or on an FAA flight plan – that is public knowledge.

The FAA records of where and when it was in the air traffic control (public airspace) system is public knowledge. Flightwise merely charges to make its access less easy. Why? Corporate espionage; i.e., who’s cutting deals with whom, supply sources, etc. And since the vast majority of airports are also public . . . the information is available, though it may take time-consuming digging.

I have also seen her get off a highly decorated tour bus, similar to the ones that performers have. It said “Going Rogue” on the side and I don’t know if there was anything else on the side.

ohhhhnoooooosss, the horror of it all, saying it’s a bus tour while flying in a plane!!? It’s too bad we can’t get these wunder sleuths’ to track down bin laden, they’d find out he was hiding in a fully furnished mansion instead of the caves he is suppose to be in. Good work morons! Thanks for the report l3wis, I’ll keep an eye skyward on Dec. 6th and let you know if I see any planes flying into sioux falls.

Well, it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out if she flies in, because instead the normal two planes into Joe Foss, there will be three for the day.

Who cares if she flies on a jet, floats in on a boat, or drives in on a bus… as long as my tax dollars aren’t paying for it I could care less.

This registers at about the same importance level as the country of origin for the buses Presidential candidates choose to ride around in. I don’t care if they are made in Canada or the US… it is a distraction and nothing more.

Thus, if some richy rich wishes to let Palin use his jet, or if the publisher is footing the bill because they know they will make millions from her book… so be it. She is a private citizen using private funds – why should this be any more newsworthy than a couple who crash a state dinner with the President?

I could care less to, but if you call your book tour a ‘bus tour’ shouldn’t you be riding on a bus?
