Can't decide on a university? Neither could Sarah Palin

U.S. VP hopeful went to five colleges in six years

Let’s hope Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin isn’t as indecisive about running the States as she was about attending college.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that Palin attended five different universities and colleges in only six years. She evenually graduated with a degree in journalism from the University of Idaho in 1987.

Palin started her post-secondary education as a business administration student at Hawaii Pacific University, a private university in Honolulu. She transferred after one semester to two-year college North Idaho College for two semesters as a general studies student.

She then spent two semesters at the University of Idaho where she studied journalism with a focus on broadcast before moving back home to Alaska for one semester at Matanuska-Susitna College. She returned to the University of Idaho after that to complete her degree.

It appears that none of the colleges and universities where Palin attended were contacted by John McCain’s vetting process.
