Palin Quitting Governorship

It's breaking news.

Sarah Palin is leaving her position as Alaska's governor by the end of the month. Here's the LA Times take on this story. The Times mentions an upcoming Vanity Fair article on Palin that paints a not-so-pretty picture of her.


Leaving in the middle of her first term.


She wants to "keep progressing" the state. [sic]

One reason: lame duck politicians travel and accept their status as lame ducks.

What does being a lame duck have to do with being a mid-first-term governor?

Let the feeding frenzy begin.

The DC GOP reaction to this will be interesting.

I'm really really hoping for a Palin/Joe the Plumber GOP ticket in 2012...

If we could just figure out how to get Michele Bachmann on that ticket somewhere also it could be a perfect trifecta of GOP boobery.

I wish I could have taken a picture of the "goofy" look on my face as I'm listening to her drivel. The woman makes no sense at all, and to give a speech - it's so damn painful - to listen to. I agree with the Bachmann/trifecta. These goofs have to go. I honestly don't think any of them qualify to bear the title POLITICIAN.

Keep in mind that Bush won his reelection. Setting up a trifecta like that could burn us. Btw, is it just me or does Michelle Bachmann have crazy eyes?

I can't wait to see her get the shit beaten out of her in debates for the GOP nomination in '12.

Palin/Bachmann in 2012....LOL...what a duo...too bad a lot of people would go for it!

Lucky for me I didn't listen to her goofy speech. I had just posted on what a moron she is and left the house for a nice cold one. The manager told us (we were watching ESPN!).

Somethings up. The Alaskan people have never been her concern. Maybe a sex scandal about to break? Nah. Look at SC. Who knows? I just wish she would go away!

Happy Independence Day! Have a safe one.

NOW who's going to generate all the ethics complaints? this is so IRRESPONSIBLE! What a LETDOWN for the people of Alaska.

bwa. ha. ha.

She quit to be the mystery contestant on Big Brother

I can't wait to hear what the bombshell is that made her resign. I don't agree that she did this to advance her presidential (ahem) ambitions. Granted, she is an extreme narcissist, but her rambling, incoherent, schoolgirlish resignation speech was not given with a sense of power. Instead, she was breathy, nervous, and manic. Pass the popcorn...this is going to get good.

I don't know why she resigned but hopefully it's for something indictable. LOL
