palinTruly, Sarah has long demonstrated leadership qualities…if one means a bad chapter of the Kiwanis Club. From The New Yorker comes this story of why Palin only spent a brief period as a college student in Hawaii.

Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to Conroy and Walshe. According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: “They were a minority type thing and it wasn’t glamorous, so she came home.”

Truly, the dawn of a great Republican career — although Cokie Roberts would probably approve

Meanwhile, we all know where the President’s going for the Holidays — I’m willing to bet ol’ Sarah hasn’t changed her prejudices one bit.
