Former half-term governor and fake presidential contender Sarah Palin has quit her nationwide bus-tour half-way through and has returned to her home state of Alaska.
WASHINGTON – Amid diminishing media interest, Sarah Palin has quit her high-profile bus tour halfway through and returned to Alaska with her family, according to RealClearPolitics.
The move puts a damper on widespread speculations that Palin's "One Nation" bus tour, which launched on Memorial Day, was a precursor to a potential White House bid for 2012. Palin never made it to her scheduled stops in the key primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
RealClearPolitics, which originally broke the story about the bus tour, reported Wednesday on Palin's "extended hiatus." The remaining legs of her trip, according to Scott Conroy, are "in limbo" as "Palin and her family have reverted to the friendly confines of summertime Alaska."
Yet much of the beltway press fell for her fake candidacy, just like they did Trump's. Will they fall for it again when she reignites her fake-candidacy in a few months?
