Razing Arizona

Today's news included this from the Washington POST:
She does not vote. 
After news that Bristol Palin had paid $172,000 in cash for a five-bedroom, brown stucco house in a Phoenix suburb this month emerged from the Arizona Republic on Friday, no one seemed to know why. And a complete mystery was born. 

"I'm not sure why she wanted to buy that home, but we are real happy for her," Michael Smith, the seller, told the Republic. 

TMZ.com, citing unnamed "friends," came through with at least a plausible theory. The site reported that Palin, 20, plans to move to Arizona to attend college. So that's where things stand for now. No comment from the university. 

According to public records and Web sites, Palin is the sole buyer of the 3,900-square-foot house with a tile roof, 21/2 baths, a three-car garage and access to a community pool in the Cobblestone Farms development in Maricopa, Ariz. Built in 2006 and originally sold for $329,560, the house went to foreclosure in January. Smith and his wife, Cynthia, from North Dakota, bought the place as an investment in May for $137,200. 

Here is my question: You can buy a 3,900-square-foot house with a tile roof, 2 1/2 baths, a three-car garage and access to a community pool for 172 thousand semolians?

Where do I go to audition for that dancing show?

And, according to another report, the Whirling Dervish from Wasilla is moving to AZ because she
Sic transit gloria mundi.
plans to enroll in Arizona State University's famed Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication for broadcasting.

Gee, you think she might find work at foxnews?
