TLP: Either Way, She's Bound to Get an Education
OK, so I am taking a chance here. There was an edict issued and I'm not one to blithely disregard what JDA says. After all, she has been known to beat me. Not like I don't deserve it. Or like it.
Oh, well. I guess we'll see if this breaks the rules. Could be my ass.
Anyway, seems like Wasilla may not be all it's made out to be, reality teevee notwithstanding.
Bristol Palin, the 20-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, has bought a five-bedroom house in Maricopa, a modest community south of Phoenix, setting off a flurry of speculation as to exactly what her plans — and those of her famous mother — are for the desert dwelling. ...TMZ speculates that Bristol could be looking at getting edumacated at Arizona State University. I'll venture that she could be looking at a political career. Another second-generation Arizona Republican, Ben Quayle, just got himself elected to Congress. And who knows what Meghan McCain is up to?
Edward Farrell, Maricopa’s vice mayor and a fourth-generation resident, gave Todd Palin, Ms. Palin’s father, a tour of Maricopa earlier in the year and was under the impression that he was looking for a house for the entire family.
“I left the meeting thinking that maybe he and Sarah were looking for a place to live,” said Mr. Farrell, who was surprised when he learned that Ms. Palin was listed as the buyer.
Property records from Pinal County show that Ms. Palin bought a brown stucco house in the Cobblestone Farms development several weeks ago for $172,000 in cash. The price was not bad considering the house has 3,900 square feet and a three-car garage and sold for almost $330,000 four years ago.
The house went into foreclosure in January and was bought by investors from North Dakota for $137,200. They spruced it up for resale.
If Palin is thinking politics, and if Quayle and McCain are in the mix, Bristol has some work to do. "Dancing with the Stars" is nowhere near naughty enough. McCain has been on tour for her "Dirty Sexy Politics" book and Quayle did a stint writing for a blog called "Dirty Scottsdale."
Study hard, Bristol!
