Palin: 5 Schools in 6 Years. Why?

Huffington Post:

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin attended five colleges in six years before graduating from the University of Idaho in 1987.
Federal privacy laws prohibit the schools from disclosing her grades, and none of the schools contacted by The Associated Press could say why she transferred. There was no indication any of them were contacted as part of the background investigation of Palin by presidential candidate John McCain’s campaign.
“Our office was not contacted by anyone,” said Tania Thompson, spokeswoman for the University of Idaho in Moscow.
She began college at Hawaii Pacific University, a private, nonsectarian school in Honolulu. She attended only as a freshman during the fall of 1982…
(snip)
From Hawaii Pacific, Palin transferred to North Idaho College, a two-year school in Coeur d’Alene, about 30 miles east of Spokane. She attended the college as a general studies major for two semesters, in spring 1983 and fall 1983…
(snip)
From North Idaho College, Palin transferred 70 miles south to the University of Idaho, the state’s flagship institution. She majored in journalism with an emphasis in broadcast news. She attended Idaho, whose mascot is the Vandals, from fall 1984 to spring 1985.
She then returned to Alaska to attend Matanuska-Susitna College in Palmer in fall 1985.
Then she returned to Idaho, for spring 1986, fall 1986 and spring 1987, when she graduated. Despite her journalism degree, she does not appear to have worked for the college newspaper or campus television station, school officials said.

Her profs don’t remember her. No wonder, she wasn’t anywhere long enough to make an academic impression.
Palin should release her transcripts. It would be interesting to see the academic records of someone chosen as the #2 to a man who graduated in the bottom 1% of his class. After all, Senator POW McMumblefuck MARRIED a beauty queen who recently admitted she has no idea what Roe v. Wade is all about.
John clearly doesn’t much care for women who, you know, think and get all…thinky about…like, things. 

In any case, neither McCain nor Palin are running on their intellectual merits. One wonders, however, what motivated Palin to switch schools with such amazing frequency.
I BET if we check with the former members of the relevant football and hockey teams, and the members of the jock frats, we’ll find all kinds of great, “Remember that kegger…” stories that feature the former beauty queen.
Once you’ve starred at the Phi Del victory party, you just can’t go back.

UPDATE:  Just to put a wee finer point on the proposition that Sarah Palin isn’t much of a thinker:  She believes in creationism and wants it taught in the science classroom.  This is clear and convincing evidence that she’s dumber than a fucking stump.  Dangerously stupid, pathetically unqualified, and selected for all the wrong reasons – competence wasn’t even on the list.  THAT’S not sexist, just a distaste for boneheaded imbecility and a longing for someone who can manage to pour piss out of a boot.  We’ve had enough of idiots in the white house…or do you misunderestimate her talents?

  1. Gee listen to all the open minded , sexist cow flop.

    Yep, black men in the music industry don’t debase women too much, and we haven’t heard “the chosen one” say squat about that either!

    If Obama gets elected, I hope Putin takes the Ukraine and then sings, “What You Know About Dat” to Obama…in Russian and the words written in Cyrillic!

  2. Gee listen to all the closed-minded, racist bullshit.
    Yep, Senator Gimpy McMumblefuck doesn’t debase women too much, with his shallow gender play while manuevering to outlaw abortion in ALL cases; made jokes about Chelsea Clinton; called his wife a CUNT… We haven’t heard you racist, GOP fucktards say squat about that. I guess Karl Rove needs to loosen the grip with the hand that’s up your puppet ass.
    If McCain gets elected, I hope Putin takes the Ukraine so you can be drafted and sent off to get shot in another cowboy war that’s none of America’s business.
    You can sing the entire fucking soundtrack from Song of the South in your frozen foxhole. Zippity Doodah, zippityay!
    It isn’t sexist to say, “Sarah Palin is a stupid, vapid incompetent woman.”
    It IS sexist to say, “Sarah Palin is stupid, vapid and incompetent BECAUSE she’s a women.”
    As for cow-flop, get your ignorant hillbilly ass a shingle and line up for another delicious GOP scoop. It’s feedin’ time!
    Haul your head out of your ass before you come in here and embarrass yourself again, you backward red state racist fuckwit.

  3. Hey from the other side of the pond I don’t know whether to be scared or amused about the upcoming election. It does seem, however, that your Presidents are likely to get stupider as time goes by! Then again, the leader (a proportion of) you deserve? Republicans = 9/11, Iraq (more Americans died here than on 9/11, not to mention the 1,000,000 Iraqis), Afghanistan, Enron, the greatest market collapse since 1929, foreclosures, Katrina, Libby and so on. Erm, wouldn’t trust ’em myself cos security and the economy were the things Bush thought he’d be best at. Anyone who votes for more than that deserves it! Good luck!

  4. You’ve got to be kidding me, Lee. Get some facts straight, or at least apply a bit of common sense to your arguments.

    *9/11: I don’t recall the Republicans asking for a bunch of hate-preaching extremists to fly jets into out buildings, killing thousands of American citizens. In fact, the whole event happened shortly after a Republican took office. The previous president was a Democrat.
    *Iraq: Yes, and the world is now a little bit better off without a terrorist-aiding dictator who sent his own people into gas chambers, and threw the bodies into mass graves simply because he didn’t like the way they thought.
    *Market collapse: This one is almost funny. The involved companies were DEREGULATED BY BILL CLINTON, A DEMOCRAT, IN 1999. That’s the root cause of the collapse, not the Republicans.
    *Hurricanes: Are you even being serious? Republicans cause hurricanes? Do you know why Katrina was so bad? Because the local government was made up of corrupt politicians who couldn’t do their jobs. That, and people were too stupid to get the hell out.

  5. @ Adam
    Who the fuck is LEE?
    Get your tongue out of Dubya’s arse.
    9/11 was Bush’s watch. Did you even watch the commission hearings? “Al Qaeda determined to strike inside the US” – Condi Rice NSA.
    Iraq: WMDs, we’ll be greeted as liberators, Mission Accomplished.
    As for BAD GUYS, perhaps you’ll explain why America did business with Suharto, Papa Doc, Noriega, The Shah, Ortega.
    Market Collapse was BILL CLINTON’S FAULT? Jesus…GET YOUR TONGUE OUT OF DUBYA’S ARSE!
    And as for NOLA, it was BUSH and his fuckwit lackeys who sliced and slashed funding for proper flood control over the decade leading up to Katrina, and who totally FAILED to offer proper assistance to HIS OWN CITIZENS – sat on his hands and WATCHED. Did NOTHING. You don’t have to cause hurricanes to be guilty of gross negligence and total incompetence.
    I bet you’re also of the opinion the Sarah Palin is the fresh energy; that we need that Wasilla Main Street experience in Warshin’ton’, you betcha doggon’ it! an’ she sure did win that there debate also up there and such as.
    Adam, you have a right to be stupid. There’s no helping that. But you COULD resist the urge to display it so proudly.
