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.


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.

I don't think she should have paid for the entire house in one shot. Even those who are wealthy have mortgages so the rest of the house payment money can grow.

Most people have mortgages as tax write-offs or simply because they wish to enjoy something without paying for it. As a student she probably won't have an income that demands tax breaks, and she was raised in a values environment that says, "Pay as you go."

At any rate, the Socialists should be out of office by the time she graduates, so property values will rebound and she'll make a tidy profit to invest. If the country continues to sink into ruin, she'll just suck it up and rent the place. It's still close to a university.

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.

Her mother talks in "sound bites" because she's a trained journalist and a savvy politician. You may want to brush up on both your reading and logic skills.

I wonder if Levi knows. Most custody agreements have some kind of move-away clause that limits how far the custodial parent can move the child away from the non-custodial parent.

(1) Levi spends most of his time in southern California, so this will probably be advantageous to him. He may even be "on board" with the idea, although I doubt it because (2) he hasn't asked to see the child for more than six months.

@DQ/192: "Obama has accomplished 85% of his first term agenda in 2 years."

Correct. One hundred percent of his agenda being set the US on track for the state of Socialist economic ruin we see in Greece.

Ladies and Gentleman we do have a winner it goes to by the_state Elinor Ostrom is indeed a nobel peace prize winner for economics however she was never on the faculty or a student of ASU she just assembled the team there she is however on the faculty at Indiana university.
Jeff know your facts Barry goldwater is a graduate of staunton military school in virginia and attended one year at university of Arizona not ASU

Yes, and no one is a "nobel peace prize winner for economics" One can win a Nobel prize for peace or a Nobel prize for economics, but not a "peace prize for economics."

Unfortunately, your source is the New York Times, an organ of the Democratic Party.

I know it's shallow, but I can't get past the double chin...

Yes, it is shallow, and the majority of photographs of Bristol Palin would not emphasize this feature. But the staff at TMZ cherrypick photos. TMZ is a political vehicle, dedicated to promoting the politics (Democratic Party) and values (materialism, superficial appearances) of Hollywood. If TMZ wants scoops on the stars, it must labor mightily at trashing the "enemies" of the Hollywood power elite. Top of the list: Mel Gibson. Second on the list: Sarah Palin and her family.

"Just miles" from the Cronkite School? It's like 35 miles, and 90 minutes during rush hour.

Yet another uneducated moron who can't spell. The word is "accept". It sounds like you were a "below average student" yourself.

Well, it goes to show that a university that holds a notion that the President of the USA has not accomplished enough in his career (President is the highest honor)to earn a Honorary degree from their school, reminds me of many times in history where ppl use someone to get what they want then, turn their backs on the person that helped them. If I was the President, i would not sully my shoes in that school, more less give them the time of day. Palin will fit in with the racist views of this school, & for sure they will probably kiss her feet even if she skates through college or does nothing in her life but make a appearance there.
