The "Wasilla Hillbillies"

It seems not all was hunky dory with Caribou Barbie and John McSame on the campaign trail. There is one comment in particular from a McCain aide that is sure to get lots of play and ignite some friction between Sarah and John. An aide told Newsweek that the Palins were the "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast" during their now famous buying spree.

Newsweek and others go on to report that a wealthy donor who agreed to pay for the expenses was absolutely shocked when he received the bill. Both the New York Times and Newsweek report that he expected a bill between $20,000 and $25,000. Instead Granny-to-be, Track, Truck, Trunk, Todd and Tutu Palin spent almost $150,000.

Then it came out that she supposedly said she thought Africa was a country and could not name any NAFTA countries (Canada, USA, Mexico). I guess if she could not see it from her house, then it did not exist. She also thinks the world is 4,000 years old.

And just like Jethro Bodine from the Beverly Hillbillies, the Wasilla Hillbillies left Phoenix in style Tuesday. Mc Cain drove to his home, well... one of his homes... in a SUV. Palin and 18 of her family, including Truce, Tuck, Tigger, Tank, Trap, Tick, Trick, Tooth, Tush and Tiff, left in a huge caravan.

Remember this, my friends in 2012.
