Sarah Palin Lists Her Arizona Mansion For $2.5 Million

Sarah Palin is selling her sprawling 8000-sf Arizona mansion with a listed price of $2.5 million – nearly a million more than she paid for it four years ago. The Los Angeles Times has the details:

The main house is a blend of Santa Barbara, Tuscan and Spanish styles. High ceilings, chandeliers and wrought-iron railings are among interior details. A media room/theater, a wine cellar, six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms are among the living spaces, which take in mountain views. One of the two master suites includes a rooftop deck.

The resort-themed backyard features fireplaces off the covered patio and veranda. A built-in grill station, a fire pit, a pool, a spa, water-saving synthetic lawn and a lighted sports court complete the more than four-acre equestrian-zoned grounds. There’s a six-car garage.

Can she see Mexico from that house?

  • Greg B.

    Klassy.

  • Tom G

    Why did she have a home in AZ?

    • TampaDink

      I think that she once aspired to run for McCain senate seat….since she’s a maverick, just like him.

      • TuuxKabin

        Guess that went nowhere, thanks gods and goddesses.

      • Rick Gardner

        Pretty sure you’re right…;)

      • Cuberly

        Seem to recall that was the initial impetus to move there. But since she’s soon to be picked as Dahwnald’s running mate, senate schmenate.

        • TampaDink

          She probably thinks she needed a down payment on the house at the Naval Observatory.

    • JustSayin’

      Because Bristol moved there to get the media off her first bastard child and perform her duties as the abstinence only queen….the one who can’t figure out how to use a rubber, birth control or put an aspirin between her knees.

      • Rick Gardner

        fool proof abstinence will be achieved when she learns how to pull a condom over her head and passes out drunk…

        • Oh’behr

          Wouldn’t it be when she learns to swallow and wears a metal girdle with a lock that has the key lost?

          • Rick Gardner

            J B Weld will keep anything shut, forever, and it’s waterproof!

      • clay

        Now, now, it’s hard to use a rubber, find birth control, or hold an aspirin between your knees when you’re passing out drunk on wine coolers.

    • SilasMarner

      Yeah. She surely can’t see Russia from there. LOL

  • rusty57

    2.5 million doesn’t seem too unreasonable.

    But I’m wondering how much it would cost to get the smell out.

    • Bob Conti

      About 200 barrels of Fabreeze.

    • Greg B.

      That’s the smell of Freedom ™.

      • TampaDink

        Which, I’m willing to bet smells very similar to gun powder.

        • Greg B.

          And cheap beer and the dirty diapers of illegitimate babies.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            zing-a-rooney!

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            and just a plain ole shitty smell of selfish people

          • bambinoitaliano

            Diapers? They just drag their asses across the lawn.

          • Menergy

            like a dog scoots its butt along sometimes….:)

      • DaddyRay

        From the Freedom Fries Fryer

      • rusty57

        Well, if freedom smells like shitty, piss-soaked diapers, vodka and beer vomit and an untreataqble candidiasis infection, okay.

        • Snarkaholic

          Don’t forget the rancid, greasy Shit-Fil-A wrappers!

      • anne marie in philly

        or moose shit

        • Oh’behr

          Or caribou carcasses.

      • Blake Jordan

        Then I rather be “oppressed”!!!

    • Oh’behr

      Ah, yet her screech. Think of all the repair work to the plaster and concrete one would have to do. Fixing all the cracking and ground settling.

      That voice. Even causes houses to shift and unevenly settle.

    • james_from_cambridge

      They’ll do fine getting the smell of cat piss out but the stench of hypocrisy is gonna linger.

    • Gayer Than Thou
    • CityWOOF

      There isn’t enough sage in the world to smudge that place into habitability.

      • Oh’behr

        Poor sage. I think it’s wasted on them.

    • Librarykid

      But it is so fucking UGLY. No redeeming qualities except shelter from the elements.

  • Michael Rush

    Does this price include the twat-waffle maker ?

  • DaddyRay

    Did she name it Grifterland Ranch

  • Wow, location location location. That would be $20 million in SF. But I couldn’t bear to live in AZ.

    • Oh’behr

      Except, where is SF would you put it?

      • Golden Gate Park or next to Kezar Stadium.

  • A mansion bought with the money of rubes who probably deserved to be swindled by the Wasilla Grifta.

  • Michael Rush

    ok who said this ? ….

    ” We’ve got to stop helping out those greedy Wall Street types and help people that still sit at kitchen tables. But not by redistributing wealth — no! You believe that paying taxes is patriotic. I’m part of the middle class, and I believe that government is part of the problem! “

  • Octavio

    I simply LOVE the industrial park addition with all of the dumpsters lined up along one wall. How forward thinking of them. (blink, blink, blink)

    • marshlc

      Yeah, it’s got a real suburban communiplex vibe to it, doesn’t it? the kind of place where you can rent a room to hold your seven year old’s birthday party.

      • Octavio

        Definitely room for a pony.

        • shellback

          No, that’s her sister Violet.

          • Octavio

            🙂

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Hyacinth ftw!

          • Palmer

            Does she have a sauna?

          • Dramphooey

            I should hope so! That is a bathhouse in Vegas, right?

          • JVB

            And a Sauna 🙂

        • Stubenville

          And parking for a Mercedes saloon.

        • coram nobis

          And room for candlelight suppers, with riparian refreshments and hand-painted periwinkles. And that dishy vicar.

          • Octavio

            It’s the riparian bit that always gets me. I get visions of high tea with turtles and frogs along a river bank throwing shade on River Rat and Mr. Mole.

        • LADY MABELINE

          However, I bet she doesn’t have a slim line phone.

    • shellback

      Those are not dumpsters, but living quarters for all the bastards Barstool keeps squirting out.

    • AttilatheBlond

      Figure there has to be adequate space to sort out the various colors of glass bottles.

    • I was thinking it looks kind of like a megachurch starter kit.

      • Octavio

        Or an IKEA.

    • Dramphooey

      Our Sarah certainly has wonderful taste in mansions.

  • Bob Conti

    Can she see Mexico from that house?

    Actually, Mexico built a privacy fence to keep her and the rest of the Wasillabillys from peeping into the country.

    • Octavio

      LOL! I had a couple of great friends who lived in Nogales, AZ, right up against the border fence. It was actually a nice house, built up on the eastern hill of the town. But the gubberment forced them to move, buying their property ’cause it was just too damn close to Mexico to be “safe.” Hah! At least they got more than the property was worth.

      • TuuxKabin

        My grandfather and father crossed over from Sonora and settled in Bisbee, Phelps-Dodge mining town. Very near Nogales. We used to call it Nalgas and get swatted from the elder aunts and uncles. Bisbee’s kinda cool place, or was.

        • Phillip in L.A.

          buenas nalgas, TuuxKabin

          • TuuxKabin

            igualmente Phillip . . . where in L.A. are you? Spent childhood summers on South Sydney, near Eastern Blvd., and a large cemetery, East L.A. Cousins were a bunch of Cholos.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            i believe my mother’s grandmother may be buried in that cemetery–they lived in Boyle Heights (E.L.A.) when they came to this country

            but now i’m comin’ from the west-side

          • TuuxKabin

            Thanks for that tune, got me and el husbian up dancin’ and bumpin’, was fun. Adonde eres? L.A.? y sus abuelos? Mexico?

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Nací en Los Angeles; los abuelos de Europa

        • sfjohn

          It still is a cool town! I have friends who relocated from Chelsea (Manhattan) to Bisbee & love it

          • TuuxKabin

            Sounds like a good fit, from Chelsea to Bisbee. Good for them. We used to go there from the SF bay area in Augusts, before the tunnel was built. It was breathtaking to see all that land, and across into Mexico when we came round the pass/bend in the old road. I’m glad it’s still got a lot of it’s character. Thanks for sharing.

        • Mike

          Bisbee is a very cool place. Really kind of an artist’s colony and a large gay population. They caused a stir earlier in the year when they passed an LGBT anti-discrimination ordinance. The reich went wild. It was awesome.

          • TuuxKabin

            Glad to read your news. El husbian and I took my mom there about . . . 12 years ago, her first born, my sister was born there. We spent lots of Augusts there. I remember the thunder storms rolling in at about 3pm like clock work, echoing off the canyons. Nice place.

      • Michael Abbett

        I’ve been in Nogales on the Mexican side a few times. Had some of the best food and tequila ever, some nice shopping and the people were very nice to us. Same for Monterrey. I wish people would get over this xenophobia and paranoia we’re currently ruled by it seems. I’ve felt scared for my life a few places in my life, but Mexico wasn’t one of them. Some places in the American South, different story…

  • Blobby

    4 years? That’s 1.5 years longer than she held onto the governor’s manse!

    • clay

      the commute from Wasilla must have been hell toupee.

  • TuuxKabin

    Snottsdale is the perfect place for her.

    • radiofreerome

      I have to visit the home office in Snottsdale Monday. I hope I don’t see Caribou Barbie during my stay.

  • AttilatheBlond

    That ‘hood just wouldn’t accept people like her and hers

    • Octavio

      Yup, even the folks in Scottsdale have their standards, low they may be.

  • JustSayin’

    Wann guess how many illegals work there and how little she pays them?

    • johncAtl

      And how many had sex with Bristol?

      • Octavio

        On all that deep green fake lawn? At least we know she didn’t have a gardener.

        • johncAtl

          No gardener, but damn that girl knows where to find fertilizer.

        • PLAINTOM

          The fake grass was probably Sarah’s idea, it’s suits her style.

          • Lots of landscapers are pushing artificial turf, plus the local water district most likely gives a tax credit or a rebate for installing it..

            Downside: it is hotter than hell, given it soaks up the heat, which makes the surroundings more hotter..

        • coram nobis

          Ow, sex on artificial grass?

      • Rick Gardner

        at the same time.

      • PLAINTOM

        If you can answer the first question, you have your answer. 🙂

  • worstcultever

    Thanks again, John McCain.

    • johncAtl

      I blame McCain, but I honestly think she was forced on him. He wasn’t really the candidate the GOP wanted, and he was loyal to the party. It was kind of a replay of Bob Dole’s run for the presidency. It was simply his turn.

      • Todd20036

        He could have said “no”

        • johncAtl

          He could have, and he should have. But I don’t think he ever thought that a Vietnam war “hero” would lose to a black man.

  • Phillip in L.A.

    Joe, it looks like somehow the word “craptastic” got deleted from your headline

  • DaddyRay

    AZ – It’s a Dry Hate

    • Doug105

      There does seem to be a lot of it in that state.

    • Robincho

      There are those who’ll tell you that it’s not the hate, it’s the stupidity…

    • Gene

      don’t want to waste water (true) and it is dry, but…..an astroturf lawn? really? even for igloo trash….ick. I would ask why not some local cactus and flora, stone and such, but…again, igloo trash. ’nuff said

      • Marides48

        Igloo trash? Sarahp has nothing in common with the native people of Alaska. Call her Tundra Trash?

        • Oh’behr

          Yes, it’s actually Todd who has the native blood on his side of the family.

        • Kissmagrits

          Actually, she was born, raised and “educated” in my home state of Idaho. Alaska came later and her house was bought with the speaking fees obtained from her adoring public – the remnants of Flush Rimjob’s “Ditto Heads”.

          • Librarykid

            Mrs. Potato Head!

  • PLAINTOM

    The cost of the exorcism alone would make this a money pit.

    • Doug105

      ..

      • TuuxKabin

        I shouldn’t have looked at that, this late at night. I’ll have to look under the bed when I go to bed.

        • bambinoitaliano

          I have to watch all 6 seasons of Walking Dead to wash off that horrible image!

          • johncAtl

            Thrown in a couple of episodes of American Horror Story just to be safe.

  • David Gervais

    I like the ‘synthetic’ grass bit. Realtor-speak for discount brand fake AstroTurf .

    • TuuxKabin

      Don’t cha’ know.

    • Phillip in L.A.

      although, to be fair (why would i want to do that?) some homeowners in SoCal are replacing their water-guzzling lawns with “synthetics”

      just not the classy ones

      • johncAtl

        And to be fair most lawns in Phoenix are rocks and no grass.

      • Octavio

        Here in Henderson the city will throw in more than $3,000 if you use it to xeriscape your property. They really, really, really look down upon the notion of fake turf. We used some of the city’s money to buy and have planted a huge saguaro in the front yard. It’s still alive but it’s not thriving. We should have purchased a much younger cactus. However, the ocotillo is doing very well. 🙂

        • TuuxKabin

          Cousins in Tucson have ocotillo fences around their yards. They’re in kinda rough part of Tucson.

          • Octavio

            But that’s the classic “old pueblo” style of fencing your property. Either that or fences of San Pedro cactus. Sometimes I get really misty about Tucson. I would spend summers there with cousins when I was a kid (pre air conditioning) and I never thought that 110 degrees was hot. But I was 10. What did I know? It used to be such a beautiful little town full of decent people. Now it’s mostly a pink stucco slum full of transplanted Texans.

          • TuuxKabin

            We split our summers between Phoenix and East L.A. I remember the flooding irrigation of the parks and we’d run then dive on our stomachs and hydroplane a bit. Sleeping out on the porches was a big thrill. Coming from the East Bay Area, S.F. we never slept outside. Too cold.

          • Octavio

            LOL No shit SF is too cold. I sort of miss dressing in layers. But not so much I’d move back. Today and next week the temp in Vegas area is 30 and lower at night and no higher than 40 during the day. We just got back from Whistler, BC, and I swear I was warmer in Canada. We had a thin skin of ice on the pool this morning! Hope it returns to “normal” soon. Rain would be nice. 🙂

          • johncAtl

            Damn. I’m in LV every year for conferences and I didn’t think it got that cold.

            I went walking on the beach in North Florida Christmas morning. It was in the mid 70s, about 20-25 degrees above normal.

            How in the hell am I ever going to know what clothes to pack when I travel?

          • Octavio

            A light jacket and long pants should work. Not that I would know. I only wear cargo shorts, clam diggers and oversized T-shirts. We are looking forward to watching the largest display of fireworks in the Nation on New Years Eve. Last year for New Years El Squeeze packed me in our car and we cruised the belt route around Buenos Aires with all of the windows down driving under and passed fireworks exhibition after fireworks exhibition. It was 40 degrees Celsius (104 F?). 🙂

          • johncAtl

            104F….. apparently El Squeeze is quite the devil.

          • Octavio

            He is. He really is. Snores, though. 🙂

          • coram nobis

            (Might want to test for apnea. No joke. At least rule it out).

        • Phillip in L.A.

          Interesting. Those large cacti are spectacular if happy.

          Here, the DWP gives rebates for putting in variable-speed pool pumps (don’t ask) and such

          • Octavio

            Yup. For a bargain $1,399 we got a new Hayward pump installed last August. It has cut down our electric bill, but because of space constrictions it had to be installed in such a way we can only read the touch pad upside down. I hate upside down. As yet, Nevada Power has given our promised rebate. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting . . …

          • Some of the best ways to save water, and what the Water Districts are finding out to promote are pushing low pressure shower heads and low flush toilets, than rebates on drought resistant landscapes, even though everything helps..

      • perversatile
        • Phillip in L.A.

          yes, one of my neighbors did that

        • coram nobis

          That’s funny, he doesn’t look Irish.

      • The Water Districts are pushing rebates for those who installed artificial turf and getting rid of their lawns., even though it makes the surrounding areas of the turf even hotter as the turf sucks up heat and doesn’t dissipate it.. I knew someone in Moorpark who replace his lawn with the synthetic turf and he regrets it..

  • SunsetGay

    Gays! This is our chance! We need to do a Kickstarter campaign and buy that house so we can turn it into a gay sex bed and breakfast complete with glory holes, slings, and a sauna. The pool and tennis court are already there.

    Seriously! Let’s Teabag the biggest Teabagger of them all.

    • Octavio

      Nice idea. But I’m pretty sure the HOA rules prohibit every use except for a single family residence for hosting swinger’s parties. 🙂

      • SunsetGay

        Hey man. It’s not a crime if the HOA board doesn’t know about it. There are always ways around that bullshit. When you pay $2.5M for a compound, you can do whatever the fuck you want.

        Everyone has a price, as Darth Palin has taught us.

        • Octavio

          Yes, I believe you are correct.

        • 120 degree heat in the summer is much more powerful than any HOA and their rules. Swingers or no swingers, no one likes to lounge around 90 degree pool water on a super hot deck. Plus try to escape to another place, and the airport is closed because it is so hot, planes can take off because it is too hot to get lift for a jet aircraft..

          If you want to spite conservatives, buy Reagan’s Ranch outside of Santa Barbara, saner climate.

      • coram nobis

        Youd need to look it up in the relevant CC&Rs. (Cocks, cockrings and restraints).

      • it’s AZ! they smile upon large families. and We are Family!

    • The Arizona Summers will make sure that buying this house was a really bad idea. Three months of 115-120 degree days plus 90 plus degree nights, will take away the spite against Sarah Palin..

      Ditto for Alaskan Winters will take away the spite for buying her house in Wasilla when she goes financially bankrupt, (she is already morally bankrupt)

  • radiofreerome

    “Can she see Mexico from that house.”

    No, but I hope she can see bankruptcy.

  • TheManicMechanic

    I wonder if they hung some axles and wheels from the basement ceilings to make her feel truly at home.

  • PLAINTOM

    Who knew fake fraternity test results are so expensive ?

    • clay

      (PLEASE don’t correct that typo; it’s perfect just the way it is.)

      • PLAINTOM

        brain fart

  • Reality.Bites

    Does the price include delousing?

  • No one knows how to milk dubious celebrity better than Sarah! Look at all the cash she has amassed since she quite the Alaska governorship! I keep on saying it — she is not stupid and very shrewd.

    • Helen Damnation ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Or rather, since she was selected by old man McCain…

    • I am guessing that she and her ilk are spending much of that cash, given how she has panicked and groveled back to Fox News for lesser money, and now is trying to get gigs that are paying her way less than her big pay days in 2009.. It sounds like she went through that cash already..

  • JCF

    Ooops! All her other “business” ventures have FAILED, so she’s quitting this house, too!

  • delk

    I wouldn’t be surprised if those idiots pissed through all their money. Add in the fact that Sarah’s gravy train has derailed and I bet she’s selling because she needs the cash.

    • Octavio

      That’s a bet we would both make money on.

  • Cuberly

    Why is it the term mansion is being applied to something that looks like the alley view of a comfort inn extended stay? That is one butt ugly “home”, crimmeny the fake high chroma “green” grass makes my teeth itch, let alone the industrial park headquarters esthetic.

    Mooselini wins the grifter lottery and that’s the proceeds?

    I know, bitch bitch bitch….

    • Helen Damnation ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Ah, so you’ve never experienced the joys of Southwestern architecture? I suspect an East coaster, amirite?

      • johncAtl

        If you took the house by itself it’s not so bad, but the warehouse on the right? What the hell is that?

        • Reality.Bites

          It’s where they store Bristol’s used abstinence pledges.

        • Cuberly

          But it’s a wart in it’s surroundings. I hear what you’re saying. But it would fit like a glove in Glendale, less so here.

        • ChrisMorley

          media room/theater?

          • Oh’behr

            Garage?

      • Cuberly

        Oh come on, not fair. VERY inaccurate too.

        I don’t do europe, or cocktails beside the pool in MX, I throw the hiking and camping gear in the truck and head to the southwest on pretty much every vacation I take. Have a bit of an obsession with the southwest, my favorite part of the US. Seen my share of awesome houses there. Unfortunately prefabrication has proliferated. Hence, why the fuck would I think to drive out to a Palin home and think I’d be experiencing a bit of consideration for anything aestetic.

        You been to Santa Fe or Taos?

      • Piet

        Not being a Southwesterner, I’m mostly puzzled by the placement of random electrical plates at odd levels. I can tell when they’re plugs or switches, but what’s a tied-off electrical box doing at about 7 feet off the floor and 18 inches away from a corner, in a room that already has plenty of wall plugs and light switches, for example.
        Also, I never realized it was the thing to do to tie up your towels like little gifts so people get the thrill of unwrapping them when they want to dry their hands. Must make a note to tell the maid. How do you say “wrap” in Alaskan Spanglish?

    • johncAtl

      I agree… That’s not a mansion, except for the price. It’s quite ugly.

      • Oh’behr

        I think the Palins put their aesthetic and karma on it. It was big before, now it’s even uglier:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkxNgR5rEsc

        Also another site, Warning: conservative site with pictures of the house before Sarah got it: (Repost, yet it so far down most people might not see it).

        http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2011/05/23/did-sarah-palin-buy-these-new-digs-in-arizona/

        • johncAtl

          I stopped at one minute. He said the house was unfinished, so he is trespassing and should have been arrested…right?

          • David L. Caster

            Nope, the guy is an agent. It was foreclosed on before it was completed. It would appear that the previous owner ran out of money before construction was finished.

        • It wasn’t a bad looking house before she bought it

          • Oh’behr

            I agree. I shouldn’t have implied that it was ugly before. It’s just so big, well, the Palins did manage to turn it into something ugly.

          • It looks like a highway motel, or a store on the outer ring of a mall. Having a full basketball court would make sense if you were in the NBA, but for the average person, just looks like poor folk trying to fulfill every “house” wish.

            Especially if it triples as a tennis court and a volleyball court.

      • Cuberly

        A Frankenstein’d McMansion.

    • Michael Rush

      See why you’re not the listing agent on this property !

      • Cuberly

        Grrrrrrrrr, don’t say real estate, let alone listing agent to me. Grrrrrrrr…..

    • Phillip in L.A.

      I believe that’s what’s known in the trade as a “McMansion”

      • Cuberly

        Ha! Shit, you beat me to it.

        • David L. Caster

          Well, not really. Most McMansions are under 5,000 sf. This Palin property really does not match the description of a McMansion.

          • Cuberly

            Pastiche indulgence?

          • David L. Caster

            From the listing description in the LA Times:

            The main house is a blend of Santa Barbara, Tuscan and Spanish styles. High ceilings, chandeliers and wrought-iron railings are among interior details. A media room/theater, a wine cellar, six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms are among the living spaces, which take in mountain views. One of the two master suites includes a rooftop deck. The Tuscan-style compound sits on more than four acres in Scottsdale with basketball and bocce ball courts, a putting green and a swimming pool. The resort-themed backyard features a fireplaces off the covered patio and a veranda. A built-in grill station, a fire pit, a pool, a spa, water-saving synthetic lawn and a lighted sports court complete the more than four-acre equestrian-zoned grounds. There’s a six-car garage.

            From the 60+ pictures, it’s been staged, which is to say, filled (sparsely in this case) with rented furnishings to help sell the home. It’s pretty nice, but we are talking about Arizona and 117 F in the summer. Probably takes about 18 tons of air conditioning to keep it comfortable 6 months out of the year which translates to a big utility bill.

            The property last changed hands in 2011 for $1.695 million, public records show.

            They are asking 2.499 million now. It could be a good escape from a cold climate during the winter but being out a bit in the desert, it still would get cold-ish in the winter.

            “From the 60+ pictures, it’s been staged, which is to say, filled (sparsely in this case) with rented furnishings to help sell the home.”

            Have you seen pictures of the wan white emptiness of her over-sized Wasilla home? She loves staged and sparse, fits her mind-set.

    • Dramphooey

      It looks like somebody stapled a Barbie Dream House to a Boscov’s.

    • Michael Abbett

      It looks like a court ordered minimum security rehab clinic that you’d imagine a celebrity checking into. Too industrial to look anything like a home. Nothing natural about it, no humanity, but then that’s probably what drew her to it in the first place.

      • Oh’behr

        It wasn’t bad beforehand. Yet that’s what the Palins do to things. Change them to tacky and hideous.

    • rusty57

      You have a discerning eye and taste.
      Mooselini, not so much.

  • Baby Dave

    To quote Lucy Parsons, at the age of 90, upon giving a speech in commemoration of the Haymarket Disaster,

    “What I want is for every greasy, grimy bum to potion himself at the doorways of the houses of the rich, and shoot or stab them until they are dead”.

    While I don’t endorse violence personally, I admire her spunk. She was just pissed. And you know, the thing she was pissed about- Wealth Inequality- is something i think we ought to be even more pissed about today,

    This house could easily be repurposed as a major hospital, or a homeless shelter for hundreds of people. Or a park for children to play in. Instead, it’s hoarded by one talentless family, none of whom have contributed anything to make their oxygen consumption worthwhile. Its disgusting.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      amen brother you said it soooo well. bravo!

    • Oh’behr

      Thank you. I’m so glad I don’t watch the news or read common rags. Reminds me of the Jenners and Kardash-what-their-names. (I know yet I just don’t know how to spell, ugh, “them”). Hollyweirdtrash.

  • Eriq von Hagen

    That is a cool house tho.

    • Yixing’s Fluffer

      Cool for a round of paintball? Yes.
      As a place where I’d want to live? No.

      • Oh’behr

        There was a video of the house online before the Palins bought it. As I recall (fuzzy memory) the yard was simplier and the landscaping was southwestern (native). No astroturf. One only can imagine was touches (or should I say, what Sarah touched) inside to turn what was a rather plain house into a disaster of her own interior design.

    • Oh’behr

      This is the video of the house before she bought it.

      • Octavio

        I guess Bristol gave up her dream of teaching Jazz, Ballet and Lap dance classes. So they need to sell the place.

  • Yixing’s Fluffer

    Why is the American flag just lying out on the astroturf like that? Isn’t that in violation of the flag code that most faux-conservatives claim to honor?

    • johncAtl

      Interesting catch. Is it made of stone or something?

      • Yixing’s Fluffer

        For all we know it could be some gigantic diabetes-inducing cake for Bristol’s latest “oops, this one doesn’t count, either” baby.

          • clay

            Oh, so they’re not going to walk on it, just punch holes in it and drunkenly lob crushed beer cans at it. No, that’s not disrespectful, at all.

          • If you scan the pics of the house, there’s one with a flag art piece on an easel in the hallway, so it’s totes ok. LOL Actually, in my efforts to google and learn about this “corn hole” pastime, I’ve discovered that the ‘Murican flag is quite a common theme for the corn hole device.

          • clay

            I’m originally from Kansas, where drunken games are common and not very diverse, but I’ve NEVER seen one with an American flag.

      Wonder if McCain sold that house to her?

      • Oh’behr

        Hmm, great point. They could have steered Palin to the nouveau riche side of Scottdale to keep her away from them.

  • bambinoitaliano

    The family are not use to living in a concrete building. They all squeeze in a trailer park behind the house.

    • Oh’behr

      One which they leave the tires on for a quick getaway. Think limo escapade of several years ago.

        Gin? I doubt Sarah springs for anything more than Natural Ice in the 30pack. Quick drunk and no regrets when you wake up next to her daughter in the morning. A week later when the quick maternity test is positive is another story….

        • TampaDink

          “The smell of gin & regret” is a Beverly Leslie line from “Will & Grace”.

  • bible spice isn’t as stupid as she seems. she may have bought the place for shits and giggles and grift, but now is a really good time to get the fuck out. i hate to say this, but i’ve spent quite a bit of time in AZ, and that was before climate change Got Real. it’s warm, and um, dry.

    • johncAtl

      TampaDink said below what I thought when I first read she was moving to Phoenix. She saw Arizona as a path to run for the Senate, but that damn McCain just won’t die. And we all know she doesn’t have the patience to finish anything she starts.

          It’s kind of a matter of what you’re used to. I grew up living on the beach in Florida, and Atlanta is as far north as I ever plan to live. I’ll take sweating over shivering anytime. I was in Chicago in January once and I didn’t think I would ever be warm again.

            No, just don’t go there to start with. On another trip I was on a 767 leaving Ohare about four hours late because of heavy snow. We took off about 10pm, and about halfway down the runway the pilot aborted due to crosswinds. I still have bruises on my left arm from the woman in the seat beside me grabbing me so hard. And I ended up sleeping on a seat in the terminal to be sure I could get out on the first flight the next morning.

          • William

            I lived in Minnesota for a year. There wasn’t much snow, but walking out the door on a 50 below morning was a tad more than bracing. My balls didn’t come out for a month.

          • If I had the BIG bucks, I’d have the “elevated” mid-ridge house in Fla. (Hurricane resistant) for summer here and an Australian house for THEIR summer so I’d never be cold. Being RICH, I wouldn’t mind the Flori-duh politics (that helped decide our move) because rules and such don’t apply when when you shit golden turds.

      • It would be cheaper and easier for her to run in Alaska, even though she wouldn’t win. Most Alaskans try to keep their residency as long as possible because of the revenue check they get each year from the state, even though that may change soon, because of dropping oil prices..

She maybe selling this house for the need of cash, or most likely, like many who buy condos as second homes, (as many in So. Cal who buy a condo in Maui) they sell it because they aren’t using it..

  • Are you super gaudy and devoid of personality? Move to Orange County Scottsdale! We have houses here that suit everyone!!!!!

    By trying to wring an extra million from a stupid buyer just because she used to own it-that is not the way to “one-up” your neighbors in neighborhoods that value privacy in Exclusive Conservative Communities with Money&#153. I’m guessing that she is still being her usual vindictive self, like she was up here and is now saying a big “Fuck You” to the neighbors she most recently created enemies out of—by Living Large “Sarah-style”, after providing no tangible benefit to her community with her petty Evangelical bullshitter grift.

    We see this kind of thing like clockwork in the nouveau riche Outsider’s religion-for-bullshite Ponzi Schemers and Carpetbaggers that have been plaguing this poor state since its Pioneer Days. The Russians were doing it 100 years before the Texans came. These Xtianist grifters finalize their grifts for the year (usually by October) then move back Outside to bigger glamorouser cities, bulemically overdosing on more and more glamorour and financially unsustainable lifestyles, then coming back to Alaska year-after-year in abject defeat, tails tucked….ready to plan yet another year grifting what is probably simultaneously both the wealthiest [per capita] and most gullible state in the country.

    As a fellow Alaskan, I’ll gladly give her credit where credit is due…she is leveraging every dime her reputation is worth ahead of the coming winter. It’s going to be a long and hungry one for her. Her name isn’t selling as much in Fundie world as it used to. She and Todd are getting older. Every Alaskan grifter instinctively knows when it’s time to shut down the The Big Shitshow&#153 and haul the big grift to the next town before the snow starts flying and before your old neighbors start doing the fall accounting and start to realize they’ve been had.

    She’s the modern day version of Soapy Smith, previously Alaska’s Most Renowned Con Artist.

    SarahPac must be struggling and heaving it’s last breaths…I guess finally losing her big welfare check from Rupert Murdoch is putting her into relative poverty, and I’m guessing she’s having a fire sale, probably more so to stave off her creditors than just being burnt out on the Scottsdale life of glamour. This story is so typical (on a much smaller scale) in Alaska. It’s a fractal/recursive retelling of the classic Alaskan failure story years after Our Carpetbaggers leave for the Lower 48. with stars in their eyes wanting “More Stuff”!

    Academic historians researching the level of this woman’s stupidity, ability to graft modern America, and her gargantuan insecurity could probably fill the pages of many psychology textbooks and PhD theses for millenia.

    To quote a favorite…Willa Cather from O Pioneers! :

    There are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before; like the larks in this country, that have been singing the same five notes for over thousands of years.

Then, due to the extreme incompetence of the McCain campaign, got on the ballot, which brought her fame and fortune. It was all luck, and I can definitely say dumb luck, that put her in the spotlight.

    So the well is starting to run dry?

      That’s my guess. You don’t hear much these days about $100K-a-pop speeches or gigs on any media that are likely to pay anything more than a pittance. The columns she’s been “writing” for Breitbart are standard Tea Party boilerplate that she’s probably doing more for the exposure than anything else.

    I would stay in AZ over Alaska. I would get rid of the fake grass but it suits her.

    • Oh’behr

      Fake grass. You mean to tell me they’re not smoking that stuff?!

      • William

        That could explain a few things.

  • dcurlee

    Only in Merica can someone so stupid get to own something like that. There is something wrong with our political system for sure

    • Bj Lincoln

      You are so right about that! I have working hard all my life and finished what I started.

  • Skokieguy

    Shouldn’t it be priced about a million below what she paid? I’ve heard that Mexican, ISIS, ebola-carrying rapists are just flooding across the border. Certainly must be beating the shit out of home values.

    If you had the money to pay for that, why have a plain-Jane rectangular pool? Nowadays you can make “the tank” (as my grandmother called it) look like anything you want.

    “The main house is a blend of Santa Barbara, Tuscan and Spanish styles. ”
    Sounds like the hot mess she is.

    The Palins must have been excited when they saw that the house had one of them there see-ment ponds. Ellie Mae, I mean Bristol, must have loved that.

    These comments are comedy platinum.

    Toto, I guess we’re not in Wazila anymore!

  • Gayskeptic

    That’s way too much for a Klondike trash den. Unless they are also marketing the place where virgin Bristol was visited by all 9 inches of the holy ghost.

  • TKW

    That is one butt-ugly house.

  • ColdCountry

    Synthetic grass? Really??? Are there plastic flamingos, too? And is that an American flag inlaid in the “lawn?” I suppose it all goes well with that incredible eyesore of a basketball court. Far worse than lipstick on a pig! And they removed that beautiful, old saguaro in the back yard. Not that I like the house much, either. Some funny shaped rooms, lots of wasted space, and a kitchen no one person wants to work in. A staff of 12, maybe, but not one person making a meal. No thanks.

    It looks like a Halfway House.

  • James

    It looks as bland and soulless as she is.

  • Ore Carmi

    She quitting it?

    If I win the Powerball on Saturday. I’m buying it. We will then have clothing optional parties on webcam.
