    So Top Gun, what do you think this is about. I just changed channels to the news but all it is saying is she is leaving at the end of the month and not seeking re election.

    If it was just news that she was not seeking re election it would make one think she is going to try for 2012, but the stepping down this month makes me wonder.

    Top Gun,

    After listening to her whole speech, I don't think there is a scandal coming, I think she wants the freedom to build a war chest that she could not do as Gov.

    I like her as a person and I like her politics but I would rather have Mitt Romney so I hope she can not build that big of a chest.

    There might be a scandal coming but I figure if there was anything they could throw at her they would have done it by now. They have thrown a load of crap at her so far and nothing stuck... if there were "big guns" they would have used them I think.

    Anyways, dang what pretty non left leaning female will you guys pick on now?

    Pan I have no information "yet" of a particular scandal.

    But I've been watching this unfold on spit screen CNN and MSNBC ever since this broke and all are saying it's absolutely politically bizarre for her to do this with all this time left in her term. Somethings up.

    The analysts are saying none of her reasons add up and she was very defensive and seemed almost panic stricken in her fast talk speech pattern during her resignation speech. She even specifically warned about bad things being said about her to come.

    If I was a betting man I'd my guess would be that the Republican Party itself in Alaska has something on her and the pressure was just to heavy to bear... possibly she made a deal to step down and avoid some threatened embarrassment. I don't know "yet".

    Thanks for your input. Stay in touch. I'm checking out some other sources and will post as soon as I know something new.

    When you're dealing with a family of white trash, it could be anybody...

    Of course, Palin is an unethical governor, so there may be a good scandal of a non-sexual nature on the horizon.

    DNC Spokesman Brad Woodhouse on the Palin resignation:

    "Either Sarah Palin is leaving the people of Alaska high and dry to pursue her long shot national political ambitions or she simply can't handle the job now that her popularity has dimmed and oil revenues are down. Either way – her decision to abandon her post and the people of Alaska who elected her continues a pattern of bizarre behavior that more than anything else may explain the decision she made today."

    Having listened to her speech, I have to admire her candor, and her dedication to the people of Alaska over her own personal legacy.

    Given the current state of the limp-dicked, scum-sucking, dog-raping, gutless blunder, attack machine, lamestream media, and people like the vast majority of the libtard socialist DemoCRAPS on this board, given the unending string of totally unfounded charges against her (which have ALL been thrown out as total BULLSH*T) she had no choice but to step down for the good of Alaska rather than spending the next year and a half spending the majority of her time defending herself rather than being allowed to govern.

    Palin already had a reputation as a rather unstable, vindictive, lying and, to put it bluntly,..stupid woman. Now we can add quitter to that as well.

    I don't see how she can ever recover politically but you know she's still going to be around...I believe she has a book coming out and she'll be making frequent appearances on Faux News and at wingnut rallies.

    So plenty of good times are still ahead mocking the witch.

    I don't know. Credible sources are telling Andrea Mitchell of NBC News she's out for good. That's a quote.

    But who knows. I'm betting the Republican Party in Alaska either has something on her (they don't get alone... with Ted Stevens gone she's all alone) or there's something else just about to break and she's trying to get out in front of it.


    Either way gone is good.:) I guess the Republicants wanted a bailing VP?

    Buh-BYE, Sarah!!!

    Maybe she's decided to head South, and compete for Miss South Carolina.....a position for which she's qualified (for a change).

    At 7:30 EST (on MSNBC), they're going to re-run her official-announcement. If there's anyone (out there) who speaks Bubblehead, I'd appreciate a translation.​

    Did Palin resign because of pending indictments?

    There are has been a lot of speculation as to what brought this move by Caribou Barbie on...though not yet confirmed, things are beginning to take shape..
