Surprised from behindHere is an update on that affable mother of five who the mens are always licking their chops over: She almost died the other day. Unlike other fancy-pants governors who have personal drivers to get them into car wrecks, Governor Sarah Palin drives her own self around in a Chevy Suburban. On Tuesday morning she was sitting at a stop light on her way to work in downtown Anchorage when some silly fellow ran into her, and now that guy gets to say he rear-ended the governor, wokka wokka.

The rear-ender has gotten speeding tickets before, and he is also a certified EMT who drives fire trucks and stuff, so look out, Anchorage!

Anyhow, the governor is totally fine, due to her enormous vehicle. It bumped the car in front of her, and that car bumped another one. In total, four cars were involved in this little accident. The driver of the first car had a funny little anecdote about the whole thing:

“It was really just a quick bump,” said Jason Goodenbery, the driver of the fourth vehicle hit, a Toyota Camry.

He went to the driver of the car behind him, Amanda Peterson, and realized two other vehicles were involved, he said.

“She asked me, ‘Is that Sarah Palin?’ And, I had seen her and I had noted some resemblance, but I was like, ‘No it’s not her.’ ”

“So I went to speak with her and the gentlemen in (the car behind Palin’s), Mr. Brown, and we were just trading names and phone numbers, very polite, and I asked her (for) her name and phone number and she started to say, ‘Sarah,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, man, you are Sarah Palin, aren’t you?’ “

Governor Palin will probably see many more rear endings in her future so that dudes in Camrys can get her phone number.

  1. “Previous governors have used chauffeurs. Palin, as part of her no-nonsense take on the job, does not. Palin has also shed perks like the governor’s jet and personal chef.”
    Uh-oh — a pragmatic, perk-shedding Republican? Ted Stevens’ star is definitely fading.

  2. The rear-ender may have been a true American Freedom-Lover, attacking the hated symbol of aRab oppression she was driving. Then again, it may have been a American Freedom-Hating Whack Job, attacking the oppressive climate changemobile she was driving. Or it may have been some asshole who was desperate for any back-door Chevy enema action he could get. Or maybe an ass-ass-inatation attempt? I dunno…so many issues these days…I do — however — find her completely SNARKOLICIOUS!

  3. Wait, she was driving to work in Anchorage? Wouldn’t a governor typically work in, y’know, the state capital, Juneau?

    P.S. Grade school geography FTW. Now ask me what the capital of Delaware is.

  4. I bet this was great on the local news, with the air quotes, like, there was no “penetration” of Ms. Palin’s “passenger compartment” by “Mr. Brown.” (Lips purse, eyes cross, stuff comes out of reporter’s nose)

  5. [re=32823]sanantonerose[/re]: that is *sacrilege*. Tina Fey >>>>>>>>> Wingnut Palin.

    Anyway, ridiculous conservative driving a giant suburban. total shocker.

  6. [re=32845]Jewdishoowary Square[/re]: Anchorage has been the defacto capital for 20 years. Juneau still thinks its the capital. I loved in AK ten years and never once set foot in Juneau (I was in Los Anchorage). Palin avoids Joon-oh like the plague–she was sworn in in Fairbanks, and I think she’d rather move the capitol to Adak than be in Juneau. Folks flying to Juneau can usually be assured of one thing–a diversion to Sitka, Ketchikan, or Seattle.

  7. Listen, don’t talk about drinking in Alaska, because eventually that leads down that slippery slope to the native population. And they did my family a very good service one year when we were hiking up on Deer Mountain near Anchorage, albeit unintentionally. We became lost, not being able to tell down from up, so at the foot of the hill we knocked on a door featuring Native Alaskans, who would’ve probably answered the knock had they been able to find the door. Anyway, we caught a ride when a taxi showed up, hooray! Why was a taxi coming out to that particular shanty? To deliver more booze, of course!

    So don’t talk about drinking in Alaska. Drinking in Alaska is your friend.

  9. [re=32876]DangerousLiberal[/re]: Ah you loved in Anchorage, but did you leave after loving there or did you stay for breakfast?

  10. [re=32933]shortsshortsshorts[/re]:
    You have to look harder. There are more, but they look like Geddy Lee with missing teeth and smell like ketchup and cigarettes.

  11. [re=32985]Mr.BorgtoYou[/re]: Alas, I lived in Anchorage. I couldn’t get laid in my late teens/early 20s if I paid for it, and it was available in wholesale lots in Skanchorage back in the day. Sigh

  12. [re=33040]teebob2000[/re]: Um… are you trying to make me feel better about Obama’s FISA vote? Because it’s working — if that’s what you’re trying to do.

  13. There’s a reason you’ll never see her in a mini-skirt. Her hotness sort of cools off when you get down to the tree trunks she calls legs. Her high school basketball pictures are the last ones she ever allowed that showed those twin obelisks.

  14. I’ve had 3 Suburbans unless she got reared ended by a loaded cement truck at 140 mph there’s no way in Junea that she’d be injured driving that rig !
