Goodbye, fair lady.
Palin resigning as Alaska governor
WASILLA, Alaska – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Friday she is resigning from office at the end of the month, raising speculation that she would focus on a run for the White House in the 2012 race.What a load of crap?! Who does such a thing? Notice all the crooks who cling to their chairs and you can't make them go?! Her decision is beyond odd, it's incomprehensible. Lefties are seen partying, and I think with good reasons.
The former Republican vice presidential candidate made the surprise announcement from her home in suburban Wasilla on Friday morning. She said she would step down July 26 but didn't announce her plans.
"Once I decided not to run for re-election, I also felt that to embrace the conventional Lame Duck status in this particular climate would just be another dose of politics as usual, something I campaigned against and will always oppose," Palin said in a statement released by her office.
"It is my duty to always protect our great state. With that in mind, my family and I determined that it is best to make a difference this summer, and I am willing to change things, so that this administration, with its positive agenda, its accomplishments, and its successful road to an incredible future, can continue without interruption and with great administrative and legislative success," she said.
Here are my guesses as to why she's quitting:
- She had enough of national intrusions and damage to her family. They can make it financially without putting themselves out there for all the lefty loon to try their best and tarnish.
- She might think this kind of move could advance her political career, but I stick to point 1, I think she wants that career over.
- There's some internal family drama that is just non of anyone's business... but the press will make sure we find out about it - vindictive ass holes as they are.
- Could it be that Letterman's jokes were the straw that broke the camel's back here?
- She was disappointed at the direct financial damage lefties in Alaska caused her with false accusations and lack of fiscal backing from GOP - could this be what has broke her?
- She noticed Alaska might be following the rest of the nation economically and didn't want to be associated with the upcoming national disaster? Willing only to rise again 10-15 years from now? (fat chance - this move is a deal breaker, end of political career. period!)
- Latest criticism from noticeable republican pundits finally broken her spirit. It sunk in that there might not be any reason to carry on.
