The Sarah Palin Bus Tour is NOT canceled, said Palin herself. She claims to have heard the “news” of the tour’s cancelation via the media.
“Imagine our surprise when reading media reports today that the ‘One Nation Tour’ has been cancelled…Good ol' media... you never cease to amaze!” wrote Palin on her Facebook.
The whole controversy began to surface when Palin became surprisingly quiet and inactive. On the “recent stops” column of her website, the most recent destination listed was Portsmouth, New Hampshire, dated June 03.
That was two and a half weeks ago. Before her sudden absence, Palin updated her destinations daily, visiting Charleston on June 02, New York on June 01, and Philadelphia on May 31.
Then, on Thursday, Real Clear Politics reported that Palin and her family went back to Alaska. Her tentative plans to visit Midwest and Southeast on her bus tour are also in limbo.
These circumstances had led some members of the media to preemptive report that Palin quit her tour. Palin, however, explained that she’s been busy fulfilling her jury duty in Alaska. She said when the time is right, she will resume the tour.
Still, it was strange that Palin kept everyone in the dark for over two weeks about her departure to Alaskan jury duty and her pausing of the bus tour.
“Thanks, Sarah, I was wondering what is going on, so thanks for clearing that up,” admitted one fan on her Facebook page.
One fan said: “Keep them guessing Sarah!”
Another said: “Can't wait to see what you do next. Miss you in the mix.”
