Sarah Palin resigns as Governor of Alaska

Hinting that she can't take the heat in this "new political environment," Sarah Palin resigns as Governor of Alaska.

There is another shoe

Friday afternoon news dump on a federal holiday weekend. Something is up.

She's had a liaison with Mark Sanford.

You heard it here first folks.
If I'm right I expect a beer from every single one of you.

Maybe they'll all quit?

I've always thought it bizarre that people who detest government as a matter of principle are sometimes eager to jump onto the payroll. That might explain why they're so bad at it.

Democrats aren't all that much better, especially when it comes to corporate influence, which seems pervasive in state and federal politics.

In North Carolina, development interests seem most insidious. On the national stage, its many headed. Military-industrial. Big Coal, Oil, Banks, Insurance, whatever.

Maybe every elected official should resign and sit out at least one election cycle.

A do over!

big coal...

...big oil...and instead of "banks", these days i'm leaning toward "big leverage" as a euphamism for the industry.

North To Alaska Again?

Did she go to Argentina with Governor Stanford too?

She has no clue to what is wrong with the United States except the standard Genric airhead Republican line.....

The Polar Bears will not miss her nor the American people......

Just spitballin' here, but it's likely Palin is planning to

go to school and learn how to speak between now and 2012. Either that, or she is going to keep speaking the same way she does today but get paid for that at rallys, conventions, etc. Money talks, and the lady may be considered a buffoon by 75% of the population, but the other 25% would be willing to shell out their hard earned money to say "Hi!" Not to mention those god fearing corporations that need to rally their troopz!

Let's put it this way. Either a bombshell from hell is about to drop on Palin World or a better way to make money is in the offing.

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

Yes! That must be it

She's seeking higher education. You've nailed it.

No need to be snarky. ;-)

That's my province.

Yeah, it's about the $$$$.

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

i think you're dead right here...

......get out while still above 50% approval, go on the rubber chicken circuit, sell a book...maybe even a fox contract ("the palin factor?")...and in 2011, if the "voice of the people" (read: a sufficient amount of donations) tell her to, why not "accept their mandate" and, as a "born again" outsider, mount a triumphant return to the far-right political arena?

at this point, any smart r shooting for '12 should consider "keeping your head down" as a strategy--and it looks as though she may have made that choice.

I'm goin' out on a limb here

and say it's for the money. Two years, 10-15 mil or two years as Gov?

Not enough wolf forelegs

have been collected, so she's decided to spend much more time helicopter-sniping and trap-setting.

Sara Palin the New Church Lady?

I have offen thought where I have heard that voice before and those simple innocent looks into the TV...

Now we know!

My first reaction was, "Noooooo!"

Then I remembered I don't watch Fox news. Why the heck would it matter? Imagine the material she would provide.

Hmmm "Faux News" or...

Troll with a gun

Seriously, you've jumped up and down on my last nerve for waaay too long. You're not here to learn, contribute, or even debate: you're here to incite anger. And it's working.

Now go play somewhere else, and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Has it ever occured to you why Sara loses to Black People?

Believe it or not Sara is the only beauty candiate in the history of Alaska to lose to a Black beauty Queen.

Some of Alaska Good Old Boys have said it was ugly contest and she was confuse when she enter the pagent.....

Sounds a bit racist to me, Morton...

Maybe? Do you really believe that the Palins are pure diversity or multicultists where less than .00000000001% are Afica-Americans? The Palins religious beliefs are base on the teaching of the Bible that certain races are not equal with other races.

Besides! Where did Micheal Jackson get the idea for his new and amazing tour that just didn't work out?

Every day at sunset since 1947, spectators have gathered at the Wagah Border crossing between India and Pakistan to watch rival border guards kick up dust in an entertaining flag-lowering ceremony. This daily display of shouts and stomps serves as a unique gauge of Indo-Pakistani relations -increasingly tense since the Mumbai terrorist attacks last November.

The truth

is that she's about to realize her lifelong dream of appointment as commissioner of the National Hockey League.

Palin's continuing inconsistency symptomatic of the new GOP

In her only-slightly-saner-than-Mark-Sanford-style press conference, Gov. Palin talked about not wanting to be a lame duck, but then proceeds to stay in office for another three weeks.

What?

Is the new generation of GOP leaders just incapable of following through on their jobs?

It makes me wish for the GOP leaders of past generations who were worthy of leadership and capable of political battles.

George W. Bush? Mark Sanford? Sarah Palin? What is wrong with the GOP's next generation?

This is pitiful.

 

Round Ball in Palin politics?

Close! But according to this sports news alert on ESPN 8.

" Last night Shac made his first public appearance in Cleveland before a pack house at the Levon James Sports Center after being traded from the Portland Bush Beavers. He promise that he would lead them to the NBA championship in a giant wheelchair. This afternoon, Cleveland traded Shac to the Alaska Dogs for a rookie pointguard named Sara Palin and 14 Polar Bear draft choices to be named later. When informed of the trade to Cleveland Star Levon James, he commented " He would bitch slap the former Governor silly if she didn't pass the ball to him 99% of the time." The Republican Party jumped on James comment claiming this proves that James is a secret 6' foot 9" inch bigot who hates midget women."

Update at 11 pm and a another story on Govenor Stanford, did he play around the world with the Argentina Women Republican basketball team.

hitting the trail

Heard she was hitting the Appalachian Trail

You betcha

FBI says she isn't under investigation

according to talkleft.com

Read that this morning on Kos

followed a link to the Los Angles Times story, "Sarah Palin not under FBI investigation, agency spokesman says"

Then read this at MudFlats,

On the Fourth of July, when Americans everywhere were celebrating our most sacred national holiday with parades and barbeques, Governor Sarah Palin was busy having me, Shannyn Moore, declared an Enemy of the State.

In a rambling quasi-legal letter, the most powerful person in this state accused me of defaming her for pointing out the fact that there have been rumors, -rumors- of corruption, rumors that have been around for years.

Read the rest of her statement, just adds to the questions. Could Palin possibly think or have been advised that this is good for her possible presidential bid?

I want the Hocky Putt over the fireplace?

Palin may be indicted for embezzlement*M

More like being indicted by the Republican Party for being smart?

Bible Spice thinks she is a contender

I stole that from a friend in Atlanta but it pretty much sums up the situation.

If she wore Birkenstocks, no makeup....

and was an over-educated idiot, you'd all love her!

Granola Romney?

Don't worry your pretty lil' head.

I have the same amount of love for soon-to-be-former Gov. Palin as I do for former-Gov. Romney

Romney:
Overeducated-idiot? Check.

Baker Scholar at Harvard (That's a
business degree, dontcha know). Still
couldn't run a private equity firm to
save his life. He couldn't wait to get
on the gummit payroll as governor and
then try to be Prez. Those business
degrees must be useless even for rich
boys, eh?

Makeup? Check.

Well, he only wears it some of the
time. On stage and on TV. Wait, is he
family too?

Birkenstocks? Nooooo!!!!

Can't...get...image...out...of...my...head

 

Difference is...

Conservatives usually use their education in the private sector and don't hide in the halls of academe or government for fear of failure. They generally pursue elected office after careers in the private sector. They don't look upon their "service" as careers...hey that sounds like what the founders had in mind?

***************************************************************************************

Huh?

Conservatives pull the wagon that Democrats ride in...what happens when we stop pulling?

The only reasonable response to this is, "Please do! You've just about steered this country over a cliff!"

It's fourth and one! What do you do? Punt? Call Timeout! Or

and was an over-educated idiot, you'd all love her!* All Liberals are created equal, except some Liberals are more equal than other Orwellian Liberals.....

Sarah Palin quit five colleges in her otherwise unremarkable collegiate career, before finally graduating from the sixth [ All Community Colleges]. She quit her job in television. She and Todd quit their snow machine dealership in Big Lake. She quit her job as Mayor of Wasilla to run for lieutenant governor. She quit as chair of the Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission. Now she has quit the governorship of the state she supposedly loves. Sarah Palin is a quitter. When the going gets tough, Sarah Palin quits
