Sarah Palin Runs Unannounced Half Marathon

Sarah Palin Marathon

Yes, Sarah Palin is running. Actually, it doesn’t appear she ever stopped. The former governor of Alaska and perennial potential presidential candidate made a rare unannounced stop when she ran in the “Jump Right in and Run” half marathon in Storm Lake, Iowa.

Palin finished second best in her age group with a time of 1:46:10 in the race, which was organized by the Storm Lake Running Club. She ran under her maiden name of Heath and listed her hometown as Des Moines, Iowa.

Greta Van Susteren was the first person to post a picture of Palin running. The Storm Lake Running Club later confirmed that Palin ran in the event and Palin thanked Storm Lake in a tweet.

Sarah Palin’s Gotcha Question About Paul Revere?

8 Jun

By now, most of America has heard Sarah Palin’s quip about Paul Revere’s ride. Many more have seen Stephen Colbert attempt to renact the ride as Palin described it. The former half-term governor of Alaska defended herself on Fox News Sunday by saying her version of history was correct and “I know my American history.”

She also accused the “lamestream media” of asking another “shout-out, gotcha-type of question” to her. Few outlets have reported what that question was. Here it is. Pretty hard hitting. As she was in a bakery in the north end of Boston, a reporter asked:

“What have you seen so far today and what are you going to take away from your visit?”

That’s almost as bad as “what newspapers do you read?” Shameful, lamestream media people.
