Palin's bus nearly crosses path with tornado in Mass.....
BOSTON As Sarah Palin's bus tour worked its way to here Wednesday evening, it hit a stretch of Interstate 90 ravaged by a tornado. According to Twitter feeds from reporters for NBC News and The Times of London, Palin's bus passed through a debris-laden section of the Massachusetts turnpike less than an hour after the tornado touched down and possibly minutes before.

"So, just to be clear. A tornado ripped across the road in front of the #palinbustour - we don't know how many minutes difference yet," tweeted Nico Hines, a Washington correspondent with the Times.

Hines reported that the bus tour was just outside Worcester, Mass., when a funnel cloud was spotted.
The NBC News crew that had been traveling with Palin's One Nation bus tour en route from New York City dropped off to instead shoot footage of the tornado damage.

1. This reminds of somehting at (former) work-
I worked in a warehouse loading furniture into trucks. A fundie ex-con fellow employee nearly got injured by a stack of falling nightstands. He said, "I guess god was watching over me." I said-"Maybe he just missed." --not that I truly wished him harm-but I couldn't resist.

14. Right before i saw your pic i said something similiar
To my husband and was afraid to post it. It had something to do with it all being on film and if each american paid to see it we would be out of debt.....

But i kind of saw the bus going up in the tunnel then coming down on a house like wizard of oz.

5. I am glad that apparently nobody was hurt
She doesn't need a disaster like this to derail her. All she needs to do is open her mouth.

6. Who CARES! Enough about Palin. It's hard to complain
about all the media attention when we turn around and post every little tidbit here. We should be concerned about who and where it DID HIT, not more failin' Palin BS!

8. Makes you wonder if she had been hit by the tornado if it would have
exposed her panties and it would be posted on Twitter.

paid for by ignorant fans.

16. I'm sorry to say
That would not surprise me, because she has and will continue in the future to hurt many many people. I'm not saying its right, but it would not surprise me to hear someone tried to kill her.

12. Thank God it didn't hit her bus - the Rapture would
have come true for her, to be sucked up into heaven.

Maybe. ;)

13. So they passed an area that had been hit by a tornado
yet they didn't stop to see if anyone was hurt?

15. Palin's bus nearly crosses path with tornado in Mass.....
. . . Tornado flees the neighborhood as quickly as possible and spends the rest of it's short life getting treated for trauma.

21. Bullshit, she wasn't even close to the funnel
Of course, these right wing assholes don't know one part of Mass from another.

24. Don't laugh. We're talking billions of dollars in damage.
And the tornado was pretty rough, too.

25. It was a either sign. . . or a warning.
She is full of hot air, after all.
