Sarah Palin is resigning as Governor of Alaska at the end of the month. And she didn’t even give the people of the state an explanation. She did give the usual family time as an excuse of sorts though:
“This decision has been in the works for a while. This decision comes after much consideration, prayer and consideration,” she said. “Finally, I polled the most important people in my life, my kids, where the count was unanimous. Well, in response to asking, ‘Hey, you want me to make a positive difference and fight for all our children’s future from outside the governor’s office?’ It was four yeses and one ‘Hell, yeah!” And the hell, yeah sealed it.”
But if she isn’t holding some kind of office, what are her chances as a candidate in 2010?
“She’s looking forward to serving the public outside the governor’s chair,” he said.
“It’s absolutely bizarre, and I think it eliminates her from serious consideration for the presidency in 2012,” political analyst Larry Sabato said. I would dare to say that she was never seriously in the running. There are just too many skeletons in that closet. Everyone would wonder how she could run the country when she couldn’t even run her own family.
I bet you anything that she is just ditching the state because she has a better offer to do television. Expect Sarah Palin the talking head within the next few weeks. She will probably make the run, but the Republicans will choose somebody else in the end.
