She’s stepping down from the AK Governorship and making way for the Lt Governor July 25!
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 on Saturday, July 25, Palin said.
There was no immediate word as to why she will resign, though speculation has been rampant that the former vice presidential candidate is gearing up for a run at the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
Palin made the announcement flanked by Parnell and most, if not all, of her cabinet.
Possible reasons for this development? Conservatives are tweeting that it could be health issues, some brewing scandal, or she’s “gearing up” for the 2012 Presidential campaign.
It doesn’t seem like a great political move, to me. Why so fast?
I think she was just worn down…sick of having a target on her back. She can go out now, and start earning some money to pay for her legal bills. Congratulations libs.
Via Melissa Tweets: JUST IN — Sources close to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tell MSNBC that she is “out of politics for good.”
Just as I suspected…she got sick of the bullshit.
Again, congratulations libs.
Here is her resignation speech:
Wow, they’re staying classy in libland: naturally lib bloggers feel duty-bound to handle this news with their distinctive brand of contempt for strong conservative women, large families, and babies they think should have been aborted, but this Huffpo blogger goes far beyond the call of duty:
Via Heaven Better Have Light Sabers, we find a Huffpo article titled, “Palin Will Run in ’12 on More Retardation Platform.” reads as follows:
In Sarah Palin’s resignation announcement she complained about the treatment of her son Trig who always teaches her life lessons. She said that the “world needs more Trigs, not fewer.” That’s a presidential campaign promise we can all get behind. She will be the first politician to actually try to increase the population of retarded people.
To me, it’s kinda like saying the world needs more cancer patients because they teach us such personal lessons.
Her first act as President: To introduce a Pre-K lunch buffet that includes lead paint chips. Sort of a Large HEAD-START Program.
She will then encourage women to hold off on pregnancies until their 40’s just to mix up some chromosomes.
She now is in favor of abortion only in case of diploid birth.
Her policies will increase jobs because Wal-Mart is building new stores each day and someone has to be the greeter.
It goes on. Funny stuff, huh?
How about the fact that the author looks just like the fat kid in the Numa Numa Yei video? Yeah, that’s kinda funny.
American Power has more Leftist reaction to Palin’s resignation.
Mark Levin has a short but sweet post at the Corner:
Palin is running for president, get used to it.
