Palin’s Valid Point On Obama’s Alaska Trip

“Unlike most tourists, the President heads home now with his enormous fleet of transport vehicles — ironically after plenty of finger pointing on this Global Warming tour. Astoundingly, with just this one trip, a bigger carbon footprint was created than what 33 cars combined would create in an entire year.” -Sarah Palin
