Good riddance, Palins!!

Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate, has sold her upscale Scottsdale retreat for $2.275 million.
The 7,900-square-foot mansion, situated on five acres near Pinnacle Peak, was originally listed for almost $2.5 million.

Palin and her husband, Todd, paid $1.75 million for the six-bedroom house in 2011.

The Palins upgraded their Scottsdale home, adding a lighted sports court with a full-size basketball court and putting green complete with artificial turf.

For a while, it looked like the Palins would make Arizona home. In 2011, their daughter Bristol Palin bought a home in Pinal County for $172,000. She sold it in 2012 for $175,000.

1. It will cost the new owners

Close to $100K to disinfect and de-palinize the joint.

16. When I sold my previous house,

The new owner hired spirit cleanser to go over it. Whatever.... If it meant something to him, no business of mine.

3. Wow, running for Vice-President sure did improve Palin's bottom line.......

I doubt she could afford a house like this back in the good old days in small town AK.

14. What a relief

I don't think that they spent much time there. But it was speculated that they bought the home so she could establish residency and insert herself into local politics. Fortunately that didn't happen, and now they're gone.

15. I live in the same city as that putrid orange blob of evil and hate that is running for president.

I don't want to say that name. It has been said enough.

11. It looks like they've been gone for a while

It looks like it's been staged; with the exception of the beds looking like the dog's been sleeping on them.
