ANC – BUF World Record Flight

7 Nov

The McCain-Palin campaign chartered a JetBlue Embraer 190 to fly Alaska Governor Sarah Palin around the country. It ended its voyage in Anchorage earlier this week, and was returned to JetBlue.

The 2-engine jet then flew the 2694 miles from Anchorage to Buffalo yesterday, setting a world distance record for the E190. The standard range is 2071 miles.

    Did anyone check to see if any of that $150,000 Nieman-Marcus swag was left on the plane?

    Did anyone check to see if the Wasilla Hillbillies stripped the inside of the plane of all furnishings?

    Bristol and Levi are going to need furnishings for their place after they get *married* in December!

    Levi has probably already disappeared into the mountains to live on berries and Alaskan moonshine.

    Brilliant point, Jeff. And in addition to Bristol, maybe she could share those JetBlue furnishings with the poverty-stricken relatives she never shares her millions of dollars with – her brother living in a hut in Kenya or her secret aunt living in a Boston public housing project.

    Oh wait, that’s right – Governor Palin isn’t the one with millions of dollars and those impoverished close relatives. That’s uhhh… somebody else. Never mind then.

    Btw, Humanist, did you feel troubled at all to see the president-elect Friday consulting so many leaders of corporate America (Google CEO, Time Warner Chairman of the Board, Xerox CEO, and Warren Buffett, Robert Rubin, Paul Volcker) and refusing at the press conference to rule out a possible delay in raising income taxes on the wealthy?

    Maybe it will turn out he’s a free market guy after all and was just using you guys all this time on the way up. He sure hasn’t shown much belief in redistributing his own private wealth he’s accumulated. This might be interesting after all.
