Yeah, right! Sarah Palin says she had to abandon her bus tour through the U.S. because she has jury duty! We think Sarah suddenly realized that Paul Revere faux-pax was the nail in the coffin for her and her phantom campaign!
Sarah Palin may have only finished half her term as Alaska governor, but the Tea Party star insists she hasn’t cut her cross-country bus tour short, too.
Palin took to Facebook Wednesday night to blast the media and dispute online reports that she cancelled her “One Nation” bus jaunt visiting historic American sites.
The 2008 vice presidential candidate said the tour had momentarily been halted because she was called for jury duty.
“The coming weeks are tight because civic duty calls (like most everyone else, even former governors get called up for jury duty) and I look forward to doing my part just like every other Alaskan,” wrote Palin.
She added the tour would resume “when the time comes” and that she’s looking forward to “hitting the open road again.”
Real Clear Politics reported earlier in the day that her travel plans were in “limbo” as the Palin family “reverted to the friendly confines of summertime Alaska, where the skies are currently alight for over 19 hours a day and the Bristol Bay salmon fishing season is nearing its peak.”
The Fox News contributor also criticized her own network in response to rumors of the tour cancellation. “I did?” she tweeted. “Hmm, glad I have media to let me know my plans. They never cease to amaze me.” She added “Palin Ends Bus Tour” with a link to a Fox News piece.
Palin fueled speculation of a presidential run when she announced the tour and traveled from Washington D.C. to New England by bus in May. During that trip, she said she intended to visit the early voting states of Iowa and South Carolina.
Girl … stop lyin’. That bus tour was put on pause when she recognized she didn’t stand a chance in the presidential race! She ain’t foolin’ nobody.
