Sarah Palin as the Red Queen

From KTUU via Mudflats, the AP reports that Diana Palin, a half-sister of First Dude Todd Palin has been pinched for felony burglary and misdemeanor trespass, two counts apiece, for breaking into a home to steal money.

The same home.

Ah, but wait. It gets better. She brought along the 4 year old. . For on-the-job training, I guess. Or maybe it was Bring Your Child to Work Day. (thanks to Johnny Angel for the tip).

Obama Partially Lifting Cuba Travel Ban

Posted by Phoenix Woman on April 4, 2009
