Wow....Sarah Palin Resigns Governorship

By The Reverend Published: July 3, 2009

Updated below with Palin resignation speech
Updated again with FOX's response.
Updated Sunday morning with more from Palin.

KTUU. com, Alaska....

Gov. Sarah Palin will resign her office in a few weeks, she said during a news conference at her Wasilla home Friday morning.

Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will be inaugurated at the Governor's Picnic at Pioneer Park in Fairbanks the weekend of July 25, Palin said.

And it's all the bad, bad media's fault....

Reporter Andrew Wellner from the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman just appeared on CNN after attending Palin's press conference. She said, Wellner reported, that Palin said she could be more effective outside of government.

And she wholly blamed the national press, saying they were creating national distractions that cost the state money. Palin said: "You are naive if you don't see a full-court press on the national level, picking apart a good point guard."

Maybe she's going to go to work for Runner's World, you know, as a model....

Upon further consideration...."could be more effective outside of government".....I think, translates into...'I can cash in my instant-celebrity chips right now.'

Bet we see her on the teevee soon, possibly with her own program. Teevee celebrities make way more money than governors. Hey, more power to her.

Update: I don't think I've heard a more rambling, nonsensical piece of sound than Sarah Palin's 7 minute resignation announcement. Honestly, it makes NO logical sense whatsoever....

The National Review's Jonah Goldberg writes an open letter to Ms. Palin.....

"... every time I see you on TV, you’re whining about unfair press coverage.......You are constantly taking the bait, taking up the fights your biggest fans want you to take up.....Politics is ultimately about persuasion, and you seem entirely uninterested in that, preferring instead to play the victim. Well, victims don’t get elected president."


Neo-con extraordinaire, Bill Kristol at the Weekly Standard....

"If Palin wants to run in 2012, why not do exactly what she announced today? It's an enormous gamble - but it could be a shrewd one...... The odds are against her pulling it off. But I wouldn't bet against it."

It could be a safe bet that Palin will enter the GOP primaries in 2012. Less safe bet that she'll take the primaries. Very bad bet that she would even come close to defeating a popular Obama. Kristol's not betting, mind you, but, you know, if he were....

Best comment thus far on the Palin resignation from a conservative site.....

MY dream ticket 2012 = Sarah Palin / Liz Cheney

those two ladies would kick Bambi (Obama)’s a~~ ; )

Palin's words from her speech announcing that she would quit as Alaska's governor....

Life is too short to compromise time and resources... it may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: "Sit down and shut up", but that's the worthless, easy path; that's a quitter's way out. And a problem in our country today is apathy. It would be apathetic to just hunker down and "go with the flow".

Nah, only dead fish "go with the flow".

That registers a 9.0 on the WTF Richter scale.

One more observation. Sarah, The Barracuda, Palin, ex-high school basketball player seems to have a unique way of approaching the game

She has the ball, but is being trapped in the back court....

"You are naive if you don't see a full-court press on the national level, picking apart a good point guard."

What to do when trapped?....

"A good point guard drives through a full court press, protecting the ball, keeping her eye on the basket... and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can WIN."

When trapped, knowing the precise time to pass the ball is everything....

"And I know when it's time to pass the ball - for victory."

Question. Who did The Barracuda pass the ball to yesterday?

Answer. The other team.

@nd Update: The FOX response....

Headline: Sarah Palin Outsmarts the Left, no, really, that's the headline.

From the body of the piece: "Sarah Palin's resignation as Governor of Alaska is a brilliant liberating move for her career, and a potential truning point for the national conservative movement.....
No one hears of the good work she has been doing there, and the left is free to paint their own false caricature of her."

My personal favorite: "And I hope she starts a new national think tank in Washington."

More: "She should also lead the nation's mothers to oppose mandating replacement of incandescent light bulbs with the new mercury poison gas bulbs."......"If she does all that, the left won't be making jokes about her any more,..."

Hard to make stuff like this up.

Update: Palin issues message....

She, alone, is being persecuted. It's the Jesus syndrome....

"And though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make."

There is no "different standard" being used with Palin. She taunts the media, dares them, and then points to her victimhood when they have the audacity to write anything about her. It's a self-fulfilling, perpetual-motion, persecution-creation machine.
