Palin’s Mansion Surrounded By Obamatards

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Wonkette fancy houses operative “Lesley” sends us this photo of an Obama-supporting meth-mouth’s lab shack, right next to the Alaska governor’s mansion: “I recently took a trip to Juneau, Alaska and was able to visit the governor’s mansion ie: Sarah Palin’s pad. It was pretty funny because all of her neighbors have Obama signs,” Lesley writes, and she has more pictures here. What shantytown of a neighborhood is this white trash palace of hell in?

    Obviously a bunch of whiners live there.

  • columnv

    That is what the house next to the governor’s mansion looks like?

    Alaska is evidently the taint of America, along with Kentucky and Ohio. We have three taints.

    Building on the Left = Governors Mansion

    Building on the Right = Kremlin

  • Kwame’s Little Helper

    Astroturf on the roof AND an outdoor cage for Trig?

  • Viva la Cynthia

    No wonder why she made the taxpayers give her money to stay at home when she was elected.

  • magic titty

    I don’t understand – are those the slave quarters next door?

    And this Bristol Palin – she’s a tart, is what this neighbor is implying? How ever did he come to that conclusion?

  • Norbert

    you can just make out Snowbilly’s tanning parlour on the peak of the roof

  • Truculent

    If you look closely, there’s a broken washing machine and couch on the porch of the governor’s mansion

  • freakishlystrong

    Lipstic, Designer glasses and a mansion? Elitist Hockey Mom bitch!

  • Scarab

    Even the abandoned cars and fridges on the front lawns have ‘OBAMA’ spray painted on them.

  • Dave J.

    That’s the governor’s place? It looks like a McMansion in one of Portland’s trashier suburbs.

  • columnv

    [re=98982]Norbert[/re]: Wrong! That’s an observatory to watch both Canada and Russia and foreign policy with them.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Is that Russia in the distance?

  • magic titty

    [re=98968]columnv[/re]: Gonna give alabama a pass, I see…

    The Palinville Horror. “Get out!”

  • loquaciousmusic

    Hehe. The tramp has a trampoline.

  • Special Agent Jack Mehoff

    I’m a recovering alcoholic and I live in Illinois, but i think I woke up at that house once after about a nine day bender.

  • dano

    Alaska’s Governor’s Mansion Looks like it was built by some lottery winner’s idea of what “classy” looks like. Also, who wants to bet the the neighboring house pictured has an old couch on the porch?

  • Dave J.

    and even more thrilling to look into her backyard and view her fancy trampoline.

    Her NAME is Bristol. Show some respect, please.

  • WadISay

    Sarah bought a trampoline because she thought it was what tramps put in the gas tanks of their pickups.

  • Hunter Gathers

    i have no idea why she stays in Wasilla all the time. Who wouldn’t want to live next to a hippie commune? I bet they have the best weed in Alaska.

  • tunamelt

    It kind of looks like the Tri-Delts next to, like Sig Ep, to get all Greek Row on you for a minute.

  • tunamelt

    At the very least, AChiO next to DTD.

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    What’s with all the green foliage on the ground & peat moss on the roof? I thought it was sub-zero there all the time & the sun never shone…. If the first family can’t live in an igloo on the frozen tundra like the rest of the public, then screw ’em!

  • mookworthjwilson

    No matter what she does, that mansion is not nearly as trashy looking as when Bob Ehrlich put all those fucking inflatable XMas decorations on the lawn at Govt. House in Annapolis…

  • columnv

    [re=98990]magic titty[/re]: That’s just racist…

  • Viva la Cynthia

    Hey guys, I think I see Russia!!!

    Oh, no, wait–just a tree.

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    I love the pictures from the Alaskan Women Against Palin rally this past weekend. http://mudflats.wordpress.com/2008/09/14/alaska-women-reject-palin-rally-is-huge/ The signs are hilarious.

    Doesn’t anyone up there love their Moose Mama anymore?

  • Norbert

    [re=98988]columnv[/re]: are you saying she can’t watch Putin change while at the same time getting her vitamin D fix / orange glaze? for all we know, the meth lab may be in there too.

  • tunamelt

    [re=99004]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: The roof looks like the Brady Bunch lawn.

  • Canmon (the Inadequate)


  • Borat

    No police patrol? No angry hungry dogs? No ‘no photos’ signs? No infrared night cameras?

    Ha ha. The hillbilly isn’t even a terrorist target. How cute.

  • Norbert

    oh yeah and I’ve decided

    Lesley Robin is to Muffy the Mouse


    Hopey is to Walnuts

  • greatgooglymoogly

    [re=99002]tunamelt[/re]: I think that’s the Omega House/Delta House set from “Animal House.” (Did I say “house” enough?)

  • Texas2Step

    [re=98976]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: So THAT’s what she meant when she said she could see Russia from her house……

  • randomsausage

    those sure look like elitist faux-greek columns on that mansion

  • Deepthroat

    columnv: Make that four taints. I live in Harrisburg, across from Ed Rendell’s palace of shame, and the neighborhood is about the same. The other night, they were having some elitist shindig there with a live band to drown out the sound of gunshots, police sirens, and cats being raped (can I reference a rape without being banned?)

  • pondscum

    [re=99003]tunamelt[/re]: GAH! HAHAHAH! As an elitist grad of a private school and sorority member to boot you are dead ON!

  • S.Luggo

    [re=99000]WadISay[/re]: The trampoline is a snowbilly version of D&C. Evidently never used.

  • Miller

    If it’s a white trash shanty town, shouldn’t they be pro-McCain? Or is the house just abandoned and some Obama-philes took off from their jobs as professional elitists to deface government property with soap and signs?

    I can’t even see Russia in this shot, can we be sure it’s from Alaska?


  • Terry

    Palin stays in Wasilla, the Meth capital of AK, because Juneau IS actually full of hippies and liberals. “Full” being a slight overstatement as no area of AK can really be considered full of people. Well, maybe that hillside community just on the edge of Anchorage, near Turnagain Arm, that is prone to landslides during earthquakes. Yep, the landslide prone area is full of people. The rest of the state is fairly empty.

  • grendel

    [re=99028]Deepthroat[/re]: I can haz rape kit?

  • Tawmn

    mmm… termites.

  • The D

    Fools! Don’t they know Palin traded in the governor’s jet as a down payment on Airwolf? She’s singlehandedly preventing Red Dawn, people! Those Obama-loving commies better island hop back to Russia if they know what’s good for them.

  • Grimnir

    “Apparently Bristol and her baby daddy, a self-described “fuckin’ redneck”, know how to have a good time. According to our teenage tour guide, Bristol is a totally crazy party animal.”

    I say go Whoever/Palin then, DC could use more 18 year olds who think they know how to party! Oh wait… We have GW… Nope, we don’t need any more, thanks.

  • bago

    grendel: I’ll suck your dick for a rape kit.

  • Truculent

    The Obama place is a house fire just waiting to happen. I can see the “faulty wiring” from here

  • checkonechecktwo

    If you jump real high on the trampoline, you can see Nowhere!

  • regisgoat

    Best article yet about Sarah P: Portrait of a Middleaged Fuckwitaholic. The learned author suggests that what we think of as subversion–that is, posting our detailed sexual fantasies about Governor Gidget–is all part of the master plan.


  • lazynamepicker

    The best thing here:
    “According to our teenage tour guide, Bristol is a totally crazy party animal.”

    And do you folks think that’s gonna stop just because she’s married her baby daddy?

    Move over, Bush twins. The Palin’s are comin’ to town.

  • loudmouthredhead

    Guess Who’s Coming to Juneau…premiers Nov. 4th

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    [re=99012]tunamelt[/re]: Yeah or a Chia roof. Che Che Che Chia….

  • columnv

    [re=99011]Norbert[/re]: I thought the whole house was considered a meth lab.

  • S.Luggo

    [re=99066]regisgoat[/re]: Thanks. Time to read the Book of Esther, aka Mein Kampf.

  • Davidwatts

    similarly, FL’s Governor’s mansion, ex-home of Jeb Bush, is on the street with all the whores in Tallahassee. COINCIDENTALLY, I’M SURE.

  • cheeto_jeebus

    Mrs Muir played by sarah palin and folksy curmudgeon ghost by Dick Cheney. the end.

  • InsidiousTuna

    [re=99003]tunamelt[/re]: Exactly what I was thinking.

  • DangerousLiberal

    [re=99035]Terry[/re]: Yup, pretty much right. And even though most state business (courts, etc.) is done in Anchorage, Juneau is still the “capital” with “the capitol” and some nice charming little houses like the gov’s “mansion.” June-OH is full of libruls and big government free spender democrats, while Anchorage has republican free spenders. Hey, the oil companies pay all the taxes.

    There’s really only two parties in Alaska: pro-ANWR GOP, and pro-ANWR Dems. You pick ’em.

  • rminIL

    It’s funny but it’s photoshopped. Forgetting the fact the blogger would have had to climb a tree to take a pic at that angle, the “Obama House” would be sitting in the middle of the street which runs along that side of the Alaska governor’s mansion. She also uses a readily available stock photo of the mansion in her blog. There are plenty of things to hate about Palin without making stuff up.

  • fuzzy

    [re=99009]Cogito Ergo Bibo[/re]: More pics here: http://laurainak.blogspot.com. Not all Alaskans love Sarah!!

  • TheGalen

    Actually it’s not photoshopped for your info. There is a road that winds up a hill next to the road that the mansion is on, so there you go. Also, there are no stock photos used. Nothing being made up.

  • Lesley

    rminIL: Lesley here. Just so you know, I DID NOT photoshop that photo, it’s for real. It was taken on a hill that is by her house. The photos on my blog were taken by me and are not stock photos, but thanks for the complement! Not sure why there would even be a stock photo of Sarah Palin’s trampoline… maybe there’s one of her tanning bed though.

  • Texas2Step

    [re=99098]columnv[/re]: maybe the put the house there so that the meth lab was closer to Palintopia for baby daddy and Track…?

    …Too soon…?

  • villageatrois

    Am I the first one to notice that “Obama” is written in lipstick?

  • meister

    I think that is the “Gone With The Wind” mansion. From down south.

    Yup. Dem cold folks back home. Yup.

  • slinkimalinki

    they don’t have capital Bs in alaska? did palin ban them?

  • lawrenceofthedesert

    [re=99934]slinkimalinki[/re]: It’s not a small “b,” but a clef to indicate that one should be singing the candidate’s name. The house is home to Alaska’s only Democratic black gospel group, the Blind Boys of Pal Obama.

  • iburl

    Yew lower 48ers and yr high falutin’ elitism! You all will be dyin’ to move to The Republic of Alaska once the Anti-Christ holds sway in Babylon (Warshington D.C.!!!)
