    Palin's Father: She Left Hawaii Because Asians Made Her Uncomfortable

    First Posted: 12- 6-09 10:34 AM | Updated: 12- 6-09 01:22 PM

    Did Sarah Palin leave Hawaii because there were too many Asians? In the New Yorker review of "Going Rogue," Sam Tanenhaus writes that Palin's father suggested as much to the reporters who wrote "Sarah From Alaska." The account contradicts the former Alaska governor's own description of her reasons for leaving college in Hawaii after only one semester.

    Palin, though notoriously ill-traveled outside the United States, did journey far to the first of the four colleges she attended, in Hawaii. She and a friend who went with her lasted only one semester. "Hawaii was a little too perfect," Palin writes. "Perpetual sunshine isn't necessarily conducive to serious academics for eighteen-year-old Alaska girls." Perhaps not. But Palin's father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to Conroy and Walshe. According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: "They were a minority type thing and it wasn't glamorous, so she came home." In any case, Palin reports that she much preferred her last stop, the University of Idaho, "because it was much like Alaska yet still 'Outside.' "

    The passage was first flagged by Issac Chotiner at The New Republic, who wondered why it hadn't gotten any media attention.
  2. Perhaps the father has problems with Asians.
  3. "Perhaps the father has problems with Asians."


    Does Palin come out and call her own father a liar?

    Or does she follow the "proper" GOP family values by honoring her father and copping to Asianphobia?

  4. Replace Asian with African, it sure will get a lot of attention.

    Who cares her old fart saying stupid things.

    If you read it the only statement in quotes was the part about her being the minority. So that means they twisted and added to make it appear she was uncomfortable with asians when all he said was she was uncomfortable being a minority.
  6. Why are you so hopelessly fixated on sarah palin?

    You are a borderline stalker.

    Your posts are tired. boring and predictable.

    I'll save you some time. Sarah palin, limbaugh, foxnews, blah blah blah blah.

  7. Why can't you ignore the posts about Sarah Palin?

    :D :D :D

    ...end your pain John Boy, click the ignore button!


  8. Can you please post a link? You are the same moron who said that Palin was about to announce she was going to get divorced. It never happened. That makes you a liar Optional777.
  9. I am hesitant to even add a post to your thread. I have noticed many of your more recent threads have faded into the archives with Zero responses.
    At one time you did make well thought out yet illogical posts. Now your mind has gone to mush between the Palin / Tiger posting.
