She sounds panicked for some reason. And there are dolphins are laughing at her. Nonetheless, I do wholeheartedly agree that her stepping down is what's best for Alaska.
And Jesus Christ, her using her retard baby as a political prop is ridiculously transparent: "I'm abandoning my job so I can start running three years early, because my kids told me to, because they were so afraid that the liberals hurt Trig." Because as we all know, your profile only diminishes when going from Alaskan governor, to presidential candidate.
also, incoming ethics investigation.
also probably negates any further investigation into any other possible misdeeds and/or abuses of power, keeps her image a bit cleaner than it would have been otherwise
now she can hurl salvos at the LIE'brul media and any and all enemies, real or perceived, unencumbered by the actual weight of any sort of track record of governance on that would reek of hypocrisy on the fiscal conservative/anti-federalist chunk of the base they're probably going to try and focus their faction's piles and yelling towards
It would be so great if that were true and he sent that Japanese impersonator to campaign for him instead.
Oops. That was supposed to be a reply to Pillager.
I really hate this lady.
She's the honest face of the G.O.P.
I truly hope she runs in '12.
Obama won't even have get up off the sofa for the entire campaign.
Good fucking riddance.
The speechwriter must've forgotten to put the commas in.
I will miss hearing her say "AH-LAH-SKA"
Wait... NO I WON'T!!!
To quite the Retarded Policeman...
She's going to milk the right wing for every penny they will throw at her. Books, speeches, appearances, and biker rallies will keep her in the money for the rest of her life.
So what is her intention here, a run at the Presidency? Senate? An unceremonious fade into obscurity? *crosses fingers*
She could've been President. Think about that.

I work in mental health and I can tell, she's hysterical. I can hear it in her voice. She's 5 seconds from losing her shit.
On a personal level I hope she pulls it together, but I hope she does it far away from the public sector. Good riddance indeed.

How did someone with such thin skin get so far in politics?
this was difficult to jo to.
Oh, I think I get the metaphor. Sarah is the basketball player, Alaska is the three-point line, and the basketball is Trig's head; you can tell by the way Sarah keeps dropping it on the floor.
(MEMO TO ALL FELLOW HATE-FILLED GODLESS COMMIE LIBERALS: These jokes are going to be dated soon. Use yours while you can! Heil Barack.)
This is why women can't possibly hold positions of authority - histrionics, periods and emotions.
No, this is why you don't use a poodle to dig out avalanche victims.
Jesus christ shut up.

She is just barfing out trigger words at a frantic pace. I know I overuse this phrase, but she really is like a Pavlov's dog.
That is to say, a Pavlov's dog someone injected with a fatal dose of adrenaline.
lol american politics
lol right wing anything
Like Cincinattus there have been few examples of politicians giving up power. In her case she did it for the people of Alaska and her family. The media picked the president, then the media made the Alaskan governor step down. Shame on the media right here, journalism is dead.
She would have been a better president than Obama. At least she would have done something better than the "Stimulus package."
As we approach double digit unemployment, we'll see its failure, but the media won't.
TLDR: FUCK THE MEDIA, FUCK OBAMA.
I can smell the salty mix of tears, snot and jizz from here.
somewhere, a coconut floats down a creek, with all of our names in it.
"She would have been a better president than Obama."
I would love to see the reasoning behind that one, especially after having 8 years of a "special needs" president. Most GOPers cite something like "she believes in god" or some other thing that you could train a parrot to say. She's no more qualified to be president than Harriet Miers was to be on the Supreme Court, and even fellow Republicans (the ones that don't foam at the mouth about "the war on Christmas" or other drivel) think she sank McCain's campaign.
"She would have been a better president than Obama."
By having Trig write up a bill for her? Continuing the Bush policies would be a lot like assuming your house would get better if you just let the fire consume it for another few hours.
Five stars for likening Sarah Palin to Cincinnatus. That is inspired.

Cena, that is the opposite of the truth. Why would the media want her to step down? Everything this woman does is media GOLD.
So much for being a pitbull with lipstick or whatever dumbshit, redneck analogy.
Of course, the media is pooh-poohing this and pulling a "poor woman" thing, but any REAL journalist worth their salt would be starting a serious national narrative about exactly how this woman thought she was fit for national government (which involved things like, you know, other countries and people who are not nice to you) when she can't even handle a shitty joke by a hack like Letterman without resorting to MySpace level drama on a national level.
I want to know how she managed to get the job more than why she thought she was fit for it, but the answer would probably depress me.
No, get the job. Attain the position of governor. How.
Did she breathe during that? I don't think she stopped to breathe.

Further evidence that every single woman is hopelessly batshit insane.
fags are pretty mental too, so you're fucked buddy.
Politics is a tough game, lady. I almost feel bad for you.
It's like the Yo-Yo doesn't know the string is broken, and its journey is over.
|Goethe and ernie |
I'd prefer it if she talked a little bit slower, and sounded a bit less mentally ill.
Five stars for camera man looking for her daughter in a tree.
I once met a woman that Sarah Palin reminds me of. She was a high school teacher and a single mom (no surprise at all) who had a son who's two syllable name always had the second syllable stressed when she spoke it. She hated and mistrusted all young people, or anything else she couldn't control by bitching at it and she always sounded like she was slipping into hysterics when she spoke.
She was a liberal.
"Stupid bitch" knows no political affiliation.
Camera Man wasn't looking for the daughter.
He was actually literally rolling his eyes at Palin talking about Trig being ridiculed with those hurtful jokes.
Well timed, Michael Jackson was still the lead story on NBC.
She'll be starting a third party. You read it here first.
(The longer, non-edited clip is a lot better. This leaves out "Retreat is just advancing in a different direction" and "The world needs more Trigs.")
Just gonna drop this Youtube comment here:

Deep thoughts from refrigerator magnets.
God, I hope she dies next.
The horrible hiss
It really feels to me like there are creditors knocking on the Palin front door. I suspect she might have bet the mortgage on becoming vice president, and then expecting a gazillion book deals and speaking engagements as the world's greatest conservative ever ever, and they didn't come.
There's some genuine desperation here.
I'm assuming she's being held hostage.
Crazy lady spouts crazy, tonight at seven.
|Mayberry Pancakes |
She clearly wasn't about to let Mark Sanford go home with the Most Baffling Press Conference award.
Still hot tho'

As I was watching this, someone set off fireworks at about 1 in the morning as it is officially the 4th of July. I like to think that they were watching this for the first time too.
SCANNER IN THE AUDIENCE
For all you folks saying her motive is to run away in fear from politics:
There is an Alaska senate seat opening in 2010.
WE should be running in fear.
Yes, methinks she's definitely going to run for Senate. I think you'd be kidding yourself if you didn't think she was at least seriously considering it.
The scary thing is that to conservatives, this woman can do no wrong. I do, however, think a lot of the vitriol directed at her is pretty severe, but I was never one for shouting at people in politics from the left or right.
Dudes, she's PRESIDENTIAL timbre.
Just ask her.
You can't have CONSIDERATION without the PRAYER. I'm glad she caught herself mid-sentence.
"Don't explain: Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe you anyway"
She took that cynical novelty refrigerator magnet just a little too seriously in her career.
I'm seriously pulling for her fade into obscurity. I mean, she wouldn't be the first flash-in-the-pan political personality to do so and I'm tired her and of hearing about her from both bloviating fans who think she'd make a great president and people who feel the need to convince me that she's the ultimate evil via histrionic screeching.
I consider myself pretty crazy-against Sarah Palin, but I think it's wrong to cast her as the ultimate evil. I think she's far too stupid for that.
On the one hand, Palin so cartoonishly represents everything messed up about the GOP, it's hard not to villainize her. On the other hand, the level of bile she attracts is often distressing, especially since there are loads of other Republicans who are way more scary than she is (Dick Armey, anyone)?
The lady's persona is over the top, but she's not as inept as people make her out to be: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2008/09/22/080922fa_fact_gourev itch
I find her values abhorrent, and her ambitions overreaching, but so many comments about her have a misogynistic tone to them.
Please start porn career please start porn career.
The real news isn't Palin stepping down to get the fuck out of politics because god she can't handle this and so she's quitting now to get her Fox News show up and running.
No, the real news here is that Cena can still get like seven responses to his phoned-in bullshit.
