Bristol's College Decision -- Signs Point to Devils

12/25/2010 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bristol Palin is telling friends she may enroll at an Arizona college once she moves into the home she just bought in the Grand Canyon state ... TMZ has learned.

1224_bristol_palin_asu_tmz_ex

So far, no official word on which school the 20-year-old has her eye on ... but there are a few major clues.

Bristol just purchased a $172,000 home outside the Phoenix area -- which she paid for IN CASH! The home is just miles from the Arizona State University school of broadcasting ... a school that boasts one of the most state-of-the-art facilities in the country. Bristol has expressed an interest in public speaking.

Plus -- and possibly more important -- ASU totally DISSED Barack Obama last year!!

As you may recall, Sun Devil honchos refused to give Obama an honorary degree last May after he gave the commencement speech at graduation ... with school officials insisting the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES hadn't accomplished enough in his career to warrant the honor.

Sounds like Sarah Palin's kind of place  ...

So far, no comment from ASU.

Let's face it, Bristol Palin is every bit as deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize as Barack Obama was.

Also, FactCheck.org announced that Barack Obama was a Kenyan citizen until 1985.

Good for her she needs to go to a school with the low standards thar she is used to. She know the IVY League will not except her. Does she have a high school diploma. As far as barack obama is concerned. Exactly how many Presidents of the United States of America Democratic or Republican have ever graduated from Arizona State University. When one actually does graduate from that school then you can call it a diss. A President givivg a comencement speech at ASU is just slumming it.

Gee, Gloria a president who is too cowardly to publish his grades from Harvard is nothing to get excited about. Give me someone who has character, pulls their own weight and is not afraid to make mistakes so publically instead. Bristol could have pulled the race card to get into an Ivy League school-she is part Eskimo but has more integrity than BHO.
Before you start your whining-this comment came from another Native American who also did not check the box on the applications. Nor did I write a paper about being ethnically different to pander to political correctness.
BTW the words are spelled "than" not "thar" and "giving" not "givivg." Guess you graduated from a low standard school, too.

And Gloria can almost see the port a potty near her trailer park. Hopefully, the place is close enough that she will be able to make it in time.
Does it make you feel good to slam a little twenty year old?

"Can she read? College could be a challenge?

Well, we know her mother can't read. That's why she talks in sound bites. It's pretty obvious they both have learning disabilities.

ASU correctly did not give Obama an honorary degree because "talent in winning elections" is not a bona fide degree program. Unlike the Norwegian idiots who embarrassingly conferred on him the Nobel Peace Prize for what he "might do," ASU apparently felt that he should actually "do" something noteworthy first. And not just noteworthy for his political party, but academically noteworthy for mankind.

She bought the house because she doesn't qualify with her grades and test scores if she's an out-of-state applicant. Your scores must be higher than in-state students. If she starts in the January semester then I'm proven wrong, but if she starts in the summer or fall semester, she's not bright enough to get into ASU for cryin' out loud!

Sorry, missed the part about the Nobel Peace Prize. So by your logic a school is worthy only if they've had a graduate that has earned the Nobel Peace Prize? Hell, I bet many of the Ivy league schools can't even make that claim. How many do they hand out per year? One, two?

Still, this is a stupid topic. Don't like ASU? Who cares. Get a life.
