RE: Sarah Palin's Book Tour of Bumblefuck U.S.A. Coming to Sam's Club Far From You


Regarding my post yesterday on how Sarah Palin's book tour is avoiding major cities and Democratic strongholds in favor of discount retailers in podunkville...

Yesterday the Springfield News-Leader reported a tidbit that supports my premise. Palin is in fact stopping in Missouri to promote her book Going Rogue.

So where will Palin land? St. Louis? Kansas City? Springfield? Columbia?

Nope. She's visiting Branson.

But even that's not quite right. Palin is visiting a suburb of Branson.

Palin will be at the College of the Ozarks in Hollister, Missouri, on December 2.

As News-Leader reporter Chad "How I Covet His Last Name" Livengood reports, the media is banned from attending the event:
The media will be barred from covering Palin's Dec. 2 speech at College of the Ozarks, according to college public relations director Elizabeth Andrews.

Locking the media out from her speech in the private school's Keeter Gymnasium was part of Palin's contract, Andrews said.

"There will not be a media section," said Andrews, adding that the agreement was "mutual."
