Where do Republican kids live, anyway?

January 3, 2011

PALIN-ARIZONA/

Johnson, get in my office! I need to talk to you!

Oh no, Boss, what did I do wrong now?

TELEVISION-DANCING/Nothing. I have a great assignment for you. We’re gonna do a whole photo series called, “Republican 2012 presidential contenders: Where the heck do their kids live, anyway?”

Er, really, Boss? I mean it’s a very catchy title, but do you think readers care that much about it?

You bet, Johnson! Here’s the first in the series, the very house Bristol Palin just bought. See, you’re probably hooked on it already!

Yeah Boss, it’s a lot more visually compelling than I expected. So who do you want next?

Well, the Republican contenders have a lot of kids, so be ready for some travel. Next up, the home of Mike Huckabee’s son, David. Oh, and Johnson?

Yeah, Boss?

Be careful, he has a Glock pistol and a concealed weapon permit. Have fun!

That house only costs $172,000 but the trade-up is you have to live in Arizona. The state does have a hockey team though so I guess it wouldn’t be all that bad.

@ifly: don’t you mean the trade-DOWN?

And, we don’t care about the Democrats this time around. We *know* where the candidate’s children live. ;)

I resent the stereotype that you’re perpetuating about Republicans and where they live. That house looks nothing like my doublewide….

Umm… pardon my knowledge about all things American… just wondering… Is Maricopa a tourist destination? Would Palin feature on the brochure?

Do you think that maybe Bristol’s parents misunderstood when they asked her where she wanted to live, and her response was ‘somewhere where there are hot guys’?
