The Campaign Begins Today

...we can ALL learn from our selfless Troops... they're bold, they don't give up....-Sarah Palin (from the SarahPAC website)
This land, blessed with clean air, water, wildlife, minerals, AND oil and gas. It's energy! God gave us energy.
Much speculation has been raised about yesterday's sudden announcement by Sarah Palin that she is stepping down from her job as governor of the State of Alaska with a year and a half yet to go on her term of office. Some say there's a scandal looming, others offer more spurious explanations.
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.
But between the lines of her SarahPAC post, she indicates that, although she is quitting, she is not a quitter.
I'll work for and campaign(emphasis mine) for those PROUD to be American, and those who are INSPIRED by our ideals and won't deride them.
Yes, the Palin campaign for the Republican party's nomination has begun in earnest! No more being stuck way up there in Alaska, far from the national forum on issues and stuff, not having to answer to voters will allow Sarah to be Sarah. And, I know what you're thinking: won't quitting her job when the going gets tough make her look, well, like a quitter? That depends on who she's trying to woo.
The world needs more "Trigs", not fewer.
Yes, she is out to appeal to the retards, the Tea Baggers, and those people who believe that shooting moose and abortionists is not only a God given right, but a patriotic move as well.
I thought about how much fun some governors have as lame ducks... travel around the state, to the Lower 48 (maybe), overseas on international trade... So you see, rather than spend the remainder of her term as governor traveling around and campaigning for the presidency, she's going to quit her post so she can commit to it full time without feeling the guilt of "milking it". And this bold move has been successful so far, like Nirvana, she has succeeded in knocking out Michael Jackson.

She has no chance of ever being elected to national office.

We sure as heck hope so, Libhom... eeeek. The mere thought of her running the country gives me shivers. Not as much because of her narrow far-right views as much as due to her fundamentalist religious tendencies. She would represent Jesusistan, not America.

Good post, Lew. The link to her PAC site really does just about say it all, eh... sigh... Let the circus return, in earnest.

Yes, the world needs more Trigs. The only way Republicans get elected is by having a large number of cerebrally challenged voters who keep falling for every Republican gimmick and soundbite. So, the more Trigs there are, the easier it'll be for Republicans to keep getting elected.
