Quickie: Piper Palin THRILLED To Be On Bus Tour

(Photo: New Jersey Star-Ledger)


UPDATE: From Time Magazine:

At one point, Piper approached our photographer and said, "Thanks for ruining our vacation."

UPDATE: Pony Pals commenting on this post accurately describe li'l Piper as a "human shield" deployed cynically by Sarah Palin. They are correct. Let's not forget, however, that this isn't the first time she has intentionally used Piper this way.

...human shield...

How long is this young lady going to spend in therapy when she comes of age?

Definitely a human shield. Palin is dragging her around so that she'll seem more besieged by those mean reporters!

carol said...

Human shield is exactly right. I saw the video of a reporter approaching Palin. Piper immediatly put herself in between her mom and the reporter. Of course, Palin just stood there and let Piper take the respondsibility for keeping the reporter away.

I don't know how much therapy Piper will need but I suspect it will never be enough. Poor child.

I think Piper is going to turn out to be either the coolest Palin or an utterly nightmarish bitch like her mother. It's hard to imagine anything in-between. It's too early to tell.

One thing is for sure: she looks utterly miserable in every single picture I've seen of this ridiculous bus tour.

That poor kid. I do hope she breaks out and does something wild and rebellious, gets crazy and then ends up with a great life far far away from her mother.

I saw a little bit of video on one of the msnbc shows tonight. She is really hating this bus tour, and is taking not trouble to hide it. It makes me like her, actually, because that is totally how I would feel in her position. The whole thing has to be a hassle and a forced march to her.

I have a blog where I keep track of the supermarket rag headlines. This week, the Globe says Sarah's house in Arizona is connected to her divorcing Taahhhd.

I don't want to give tabloid headlines any more weight than they deserve, which is usually none, but if is there IS friction in the marriage, Piper would be the one who can't hide how sad it makes her.

It could also be she misses her friends and is bored out of her mind, which is the simpler explanation.

Palin calling her media tour a "family vacation," with Piper providing the shameful proof just proves Palin is a selfish bitch. Your children are supposed to come first, not the other way around.

What the fucken fucke is with the star of david she's wearing? What kind of deranged sicke-asse fascist signal is that sending, and to whom?

Cranky Old Batt said...

Seconding the good Comrades queery: Star of David? WTF?

Lulu, the Dewey Dame said...

It isn't a vacation. It's the use of an ugly tour bus to pump up her grifter mom's stab at the presidency.

Not a vacation. Not.

I feel genuinely bad for Piper. Honestly, I put this under in the same category as the weeping-Santorum children put on display.

Those kids really didn't ask for this shit, and I strongly suspect that Sarah Palin has actually stooped to lying -- really lying, not the parental lies that every parent has to tell sometimes -- to her next-youngest.

Because I can easily see Sarah having told Piper, to get her on board with the trip, that they were just going to take a real little family vacation, and "Won't that be nice?"

When your mother is a pathologically-lying, celebrity-craving, resentment-fostering, power-hungry shill for humanity's baser instincts, the answer is "No, that will not be nice. It will be a half-assed way of getting publicity for mommy, with photo-opportunities by famous patriotic monuments, and I can incidentally write this off next April."

Unfortunately, Piper would be the last to know, after it's too late. And what that will do to her, heaven only knows.

Oh come on, what ten-year-old wouldn't choose saying the pledge of allegiance a half dozen times a day with mobs of old people over, say, Disneyland?

I don't know what everyone else is seeing in these photos; the child looks like she's having a grand time.

1. Where is Palin stashing that Down Syndrome baby of hers?
2. I can't wait to read Piper's "Mommie Dearest" tell-all.
My hunch is she'll grow up to be like Patti Davis was to the Reagans.
She's one pissed off little kid already, and by her hormonal teen years she's gonna be kicking Sarah right in the nuts every chance she gets.
3. That huge star of David is a puzzlement. I wonder what her holy roller fundamentalist Pentacostal congregation in Wasilla think of that?
