Sarah Palin Calls into Kailua-Kona… “Alaska’s Favorite Whine is I Want to Go to Hawaii”

You know… there are times in life when you just might not want to be endorsed by someone.  On Thursday, October 7th, Sarah Palin called into a Kailua-Kona residence to endorse a couple local candidates.  This sounded like a full on scripted phone call.

I also find it ironic that she states that Alaskans favorite “whine” is that they want to go to Hawaii, when in her biography she states that she didn’t even like the weather on this island during college at UH Hilo

“According to a biography – “Sarah” by Kaylene Johnson – Palin and three friends went to the University of Hawaii at Hilo after graduation from high school in Alaska in 1982. But they left after a few weeks because of the constant rain there, the book said.”

Sarah Palin calls in to Conservatives and Kona Tea Party activists gathered at the home of Charlie and Vickie Bussel , in Kailua-Kona Hawaii , to personally endorse Republican candidates John Willoughby (Hawaii – 2nd U.S. Congressional District) and Scott ‘Hendo’ Henderson (Hawaii State House of Representatives – 7th District)

*Update* Sarah Palin on the Fruit Fly Money Earmarked for Hawaii

Kudos to Aaron Stene for sending off the following email to Bill O’Reilly regarding the post below.

Greetings,

I’m a bit frustrated by this comment made by you criticizing $ 469,000 being spent on fruit fly research here in  Hawaii. If you are not aware pretty much all fruit grown in Hawaii is prohibited to being transported to the  US Mainland (unless treated) due to the fruit fly.

On top of that fruit fly research has had a lot of other positive benefits that are mentioned here

Aloha,
Aaron Stene

I clicked on the link that Aaron sent in his email to Mr. O’Reilly and it lead me to this Sarah Palin video talking about the fruit flies… Consider the source (:45 second mark)

Some people just don’t realize the importance of protecting Hawaii’s Agriculture.

$469,000 is barely the salary of 12 employees.
