Posted on 12/25/2010 9:00:12 AM PST by JoeProBono

PHOENIX — Bristol Palin, the 20-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, has bought a five-bedroom house in Maricopa, a modest community south of Phoenix, setting off a flurry of speculation as to exactly what her plans — and those of her famous mother — are for the desert dwelling.

Watch the press skewer her for taking advantage of a foreclosure.

It is truly amazing! While Dear Leader shoots hoops in his so called native state, these folks are on the front line in the media....even on Christmas day! I expect the libtards heads to explode at any moment....you mean Bristol didn’t blow all of her earnings on riotous living? Mercy!

I like it that the daughter of Sarah Palin bought her own house with her own money. My only regret as that she did not buy a house here in New England as we need more of her type out this way.

A lot of house for the money.

I’ve heard rumors that Sarah and Todd are looking for something for themselves here in Scottsdale. Presumably a little grander! Would love to have them for winter neighbors.

That will be the least of her problem, expect Cindy Sheehan to
make her presence one again known, along with the illegal immigrant losers and maybe even Westboro Church.

I can see her dilemma; buy a home in a place that has cold winters, or one that has warm winters. Plenty of experience with the cold ones...

Move to place where everyone hates your family and will give you the cold shoulder, or move to one where a lot of people actually like your family and will give you a warm welcome.

Tough choices.

Good investment. I’m glad she seems to be doing a lot better than Levi te DoucheBag, though he still needs to pay that child support.

This story goes to show that 20-somethings can live on their own and do not need parental or governmental support.

That, my FRiend, is EXACTLY why the NYT and the rest of the media is pumping this story.

They WANT the protestors to come and to make the place unlivable for Bristol and a nightmare for their neighbors.

There will be follow-ups with interviews of Palin-hating neighbors who claim the notoriety has ruined their peaceful lives.

You are right about her safety....at least in Alaska she had distance to keep the haters deterred.

She’s all too easy to find now.

Liberals are often surprised at what they run into in Phoenix. Sheriff Joe, Constitutional carry, some fine patriotic Americans. etc. Maricopa County (which is where the house is located) is very conservative.

Duh! I read the article too! Thanks for correcting my error. It is interesting that Maricopa, the city, isn’t in the county of Maricopa.

(btw,I have great memories of Tempe as a college student visiting. Those were the days!)

Pretty easy to figure this out. Bristol, not Sarah, buys the house but Mommy on the campaign trail can use it as a home base while traveling through the lower 48 instead of flying to and from Alaska all the time.

No doubt Juan McCain suggested it and probably has some security lined up for them if/when they need it. By putting it in Bristol’s name, the Palins can also deny for as long as necessary that Sarah is running for president or is using it for campaign purposes. And nobody will deny the right of a concerned mother/grandmother to drop in for frequent visits.

On the basis of local Phoenix TV news coverage of her purchase of the home, I was concerned for her acceptance in the community as well. Sure, the STATE is conservative, but all three of the neighbors from her subdivision who were interviewed by the news hack were black democrats who had voted for O.

Turns out that the city of Maricopa’s residents are less than 3% AA. Media bias shows its hand in sometimes subtle ways, even on a local basis.

Bingo!!!!! I thought the same exact thing - that Bristol was “buying” a home base for SP to do preliminary pre-campaign campaigning. No other reason for Bristol - with her whole family in AK - to relocate to AZ. Insightful post of the year!!!

I hadn’t noticed too much buzz, but I would like to welcome Bristol to Pinal County. A welcome addition. The daughter of a political figure/celebrity buying her own home. Not in an exclusive gated community with guards. In a small town in the Sonoran desert. With money SHE earned. With no fanfare. What a concept.
So welcome Bristol and I hope we meet someday at the Fry’s.

You are mistaking the County of Maricopa with the City of Maricoppa. The city of Maricopa is located in Pinal County. And here we have Paul Babeu, whom I think is better than Sheriff Joe. Either way she is covered.

Actually, in Maricopa County it’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Most of the Sheriffs in AZ are terrific. Our Sheriff, Tom Sheehan,
Is a terrific man and I am honored to call him my friend.

First guy to win the prize.

Bristol buys a five-bedroom foreclosure in Pinal County. Mom can come down anytime without having to use a hotel room. It’s in Bristol’s name. Palin Campaign doesn’t have to account for it as an expense. Mom doesn’t have to spend money buying a house in the Lower 48. Arizona is reasonable longitude to Alaska and only three hours flight time from New York and DC.

McCain lined this up. Remember; Sarah Palin is his revenge against the Bush Familia. Anyone who doesn’t get this about McCain doesn’t get the fact that he has always held a grudge about the Bushies treatment of him in 2000.

He’s going to screw Jeb over if it’s the last thing he does. One of the reasons he picked Palin was because she was an anti-Establishment Republican. Now Palin is running through the Bush family’s planning for 2016 like a bull in a China closet and McCain can’t get enough of it.

And Palin stuck by McCain through thick and thin. Don’t think McCain doesn’t remember that.

Best,

Chris

I seriously doubt she's McCain's pawn versus the Bushes. Sarah has her own bone to pick with them since Bar decided to be absolutely stupid in trashing Sarah. Sarah doesn't need McCain dragging on her coattails. She can take care of herself against the Bush family any day.

And Jeb Bush can stick it too. I will NOT vote for another Bush.

I would assume she’ll list Alaska as her primary residence. But, she has primary custody of the child. Not sure what the rules are in Alaska regarding proximity.

The price takes into consideration that you could be caught in a gunfight between Mexican cartel drug smugglers and AZ LEO, or trampled by illegals heading north.

I don’t understand why the news media is all over this story.

Do we know where Chelsea Clinton lives or how much she and her new husband paid for a house?

Do we know where Bush’s daughters live or how much they paid?

Do we know whatever happened to Amy Carter, and how much her house cost, and where it is?

Bristol Palin did not call a press conference to announce or publicize this. This was discovered in the public property files, which some reporter somewhere had to put in the media.

Then the entire MSM decided to pick up the story. But what is so newsworthy about political child Bristol Palin that is not newsworthy about other political children?

And I thought the liberals have told us that the children, even adult children, are off limits????? What the heck???

I agree with you in principle BUT didn’t she kind of open the door when she went National on TV?

She was ‘propelled’ to the spotlight by way of her mother, but she also used that ‘fame’ as a stepping stone.

Can’t imagine her getting the ‘breaks’ as plain old Bristol Levy without ‘leaking’ who her mother is.

I guess you can call it a form of ‘political affirmative action’. <: <: <:
