So far, we’ve refrained from joining in the media circus surrounding Sarah Palin’s cross-country bus tour. Even when she grabbed a slice with The Donald in New York City. Even when she massaged (okay, fabricated) the facts of Paul Revere’s story. Even when when she drove through a tornado with all her kids aboard.
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin likes Van Halen so much that she named her kid, Trig Paxson Van Palin, after the '80s rock outfit. "[I] always liked the middle name Van because, you know, growing up in the '80s, Van Palin would be a really cool name," she told the Anchorage Daily News soon after Trig was born in 2008. Who knew the woman whose name has become synonymous with America's far-right family values movement was so comfortable with Satan, booze, drugs, and student-teacher relations?
