Sarah Palin’s “One Nation” bus tour of history is apparently the Readers Digest version. The former Alaska governor and her family are spending minutes at sites most folks spend hours touring, The Washington Post
Her visit to the sprawling Mount Vernon estate of George Washington took just 45 minutes and skipped the slave quarters. She spent 30 minutes perusing the founding documents at the National Archives, less than an hour at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall and just 20 minutes at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry, the Post reported.
The trip along the country’s East Coast, paid for by the former vice presidential nominee’s political action committee, has fueled speculation she is considering a run for the presidency. Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine’s Superintendent Jim Ireland said Palin’s Memorial Day visit caused minimal disruption, and most of that was caused by the media who are following in her wake.
“She pulled in a little after 2. She walked up to the fort. She stood outside the fort. She attracted a little attention from whoever was around. She got a few minutes of history on the War of 1812. Then she and her family walked down, went through the visitor’s center and back to the bus,” Ireland told the Post.
The brief visit was repeated at many historic sites that typically recommend a full day or more. Palin did spend two hours walking Liberty Island Wednesday and three hours at Gettysburg Tuesday, according to the Post.
