WTF? She couldn't finish a term as Governor of Alaska. This doesn't even make sense.

Oh, MSNBC is being very very harsh!!

"Dumb decision not to finish out your first term." QUOTE UNQUOTE!

Will she claim health issues and make us feel sorry for her like she did about Lyda's cancer?

What a load of hooey she's spouting here! Now let's get to the "real reason" why she's stepping down - new scandal, anyone? Maybe her special homebuilder has something to do with it? She's a total fraud and always has been.

What we know beyond a reasonable doubt right now is that this woman is not only incapable of balancing a family with public office but that she's a "quintessential quitter" now too.

Good thing we never believed a word she said during the campaign. She's totally and incontrovertibly "inept" on every level now.

Maybe the sh*t is about to hit the fan, so to speak. The Immoral Minority has been hanging on to information about Palin, from reliable sources, just waiting for someone to give the go ahead.
I wonder if this is all connected?

Maybe now she and her husband's infamous secession organization (AIP) can take this "circus" on the road?

Anonymous said...

Or maybe it's that "affair" she had with Todd's business partner coming back to roost?

Seems like this is National GOP Hypocrites Month so she's leaving before it's end.

America says: don't let the door hit you in the arss on your way out of dodge, sarah.

TWERP!! She is showing her true colors and IQ!

Let's speculate: Spenard Building Supply corruption in the building of her home, her affair with Todd's business partner.....or maybe she's on the infamous list of 52,000 "tax evaders" soon to be released by the DOJ??

This has absolutely nothing to do with anything wholesome knowing the pathological ambition of this ruthless woman, of this we can be sure.

The "little shop of horrors" has begun..... Bring it on!

Bree Palin said...

What a tantrum! She blamed the national media picking on her! And the 'shopped photos of Trig! Unfreaking believable.

Also, and too, quite amusing to listen to the news anchorpeople speculating about the reasons behind this - they keep saying this doesn't make sense on a political basis. So, what's up?

And isn't she a little manic and shaky?

Anonymous said...

I assume more revelations about Ms. Palin are on the horizon, perhaps more leaks from the McCain campaign or personal financial problems. Good riddance....finally.

Bree Palin said...

MSNBC is talking speculating about "another shoe to drop"

Phil - If anything were ever going to make me feel even just a little bit sorry for her, that shaky and bizarro performance just may be it!

Can someone post a link to the whole speeches by Palin & Parnell?
I can only find clips.

Fee-fi-fo-fum....I smell a criminal scandal brewing, that's what I smell.

This absurd performance of overacting, pathetic and totally pedestrian vocabulary was so shaky that I thought she might decompensate during it.

Say it ain't so, Joe! Hell, yeah!
Thanks but no thanks.

Sarah can't handle the job and a family, that's now clear. And she surely can't come close to handling the incredible task of serving as Veep or President. That idea is now an absurdity.

Question is: Will the scandal break before she leaves office now? I've heard rumblings that the guy she cheated with is talking now. Or will it be something far more serious - even criminal?

As my grandmother would say "time will tell" and that it will.

Bree Palin said...

Andrea Mitchell is reporting that she has told her people and her financial backers that she is bailing out of politics altogether and will not be running for POTUS in 2012

Imagine of this total incompetent "quitter" was sitting in our White House right now?

Imagine her sidekick, Todd the Secessionist, living at 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue right now?

It would be time for everyone to leave the country and one of the worst nightmares any american could ever imagine.

Someone was looking out for this country when this pair of frauds were "outed" and rejected by the american people.

IMAGINE WHERE WE WOULD BE RIGHT NOW WITH SARAH HAVING A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN IN PUBLIC AND QUITTING AFTER ONLY 6 MONTHS ON THE JOB?

oy....double oy!

Anonymous said...

Thanks, but no thanks, Sarah The Quitter. It's time for you to leave public office PERMANENTLY. Happy trails....or it is "happy trials" yet to come?

I predict the following, after watching her lame speech on MSNBC.com

She's going to become a national spokesperson against abortion. Oh, that is IF she's not in jail.

Interesting timing.

Celtic Diva has her check for the Eddie Burke e-mails.

Schmidt and Scheunemann are talking about the campaign now. And they're credible.

CNN's Rick Sanchez has the best theory: she's pregnant again. Would certainly explain the hormonal rants and bizarre behavior. Of course, she's been pregnant before. Trig was born while she was Governor. Why not a second baby?

Could an IRS audit be waiting in the wings?

Or, it could be the simplest of reasons. She can't take the media attacks (never could) and they are exacerbating her mental condition, making it much more apparent.

All in all, Sarah can kiss the White House goodbye. And the world heaves a sigh of relief.

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking that more revelations are on the way: CD's emails? all the other emails?

Her speech was a bunch of lies regarding the "dismissal" of all ethics complaints: What about Troopergate; Travelgate; per diem-gate; private email account-gate??

BTW: What's up with the Mudflats?

onejrkitty said...

As a narcissit Palin need attention.

IF she cannot get it in the political arena -- or her "narcissistic supply" turns too negative, and it has--she will go where she can get more and positive narcissistic supply.

RMEMEBER, PALIN DOES NOT CARE ABOUT ANYTHING BUT HERSELF AND WHAT AFFIRMS HER!


While I think MANY things are going to come out about her now, she has RATIONALIZED TO HERSELF that this is HER choice and she is just going to be richer than others ( book deal) just as vocal ( Limbaugh with a vaginia ) and can travel the lower 48 where her bizarre behvior is less well known ( not realizeing that she will be showing the lower 48 just how bizarre she is ) and in general "leaving" for a place where she can get her narcissistic needs met.

In "Son of a Grifter" the book about murderess Santee Kimes, Kimes kept moving from state to state ( in the southwest) until known too well in all of them.

She then left for the north east where she was not known. There her crimes became worse and she committed the third of her murders.

Palin is simply "moving" to where she THINKS she is less well known and can get attention and continue her con artist grifter ways.

It will not work.

Especially as I think her resignation opens doors for secrets to start being revealed.

Diva's email, who was behind Wasilla church fire, who built her house, was Track given choice of army or jail, WHO IS TRIG'S REAL MOTHER, and if it is Sarah, WHYD ID SHE TRY TO MURDER TRIG WITH THE TEXAS TO WASILLA TRIP?

Ok, we all know the long list of crap that will eventually come out about Palin. Levi may (or not --since he is getting to be with his son) write a book on her. THere are already a couple of books in the works by journalest. AND THE VANITY FAIR ARTICLE FOR THE FIRST TIME QUESTIONED HER MENTAL STABILITY WITH MENTION OF NARCISSISM AND POST PARTUM. THIS raise the question of "post partum????" NOT if she was NOT pregnant with Trig.

Soooooo much to be done still. Just because she is out of office does NOT mean she should not be punished for her "crimes."

THERE MUST BE CONSEQUENCES, BEYOND RESIGNATION, FOR PALIN'S TRANSGRESSIONS AGAINS THE PEOPLE OF ALASKA AND AGAINST COMMON DECENCY.

Personally, I think she should and will end up in prison.

The "other shoe" to drop may, in fact, be her association with Governor Sanford. It was just prior to his going AWOL where I caught a national thread about how "Sarah Palin knows my heart" with respect to the kinship he felt he has with Palin. Then when he was lost in the Appalachians, someone coyly asked: "where is Sarah Palin today?". Maybe she's out "running", too?

Then she appears on the cover of "Runners Magazine" so perhaps during one of their infamous "runs" together, Mark Sanford and Sarah "crossed the line" - not the "sex line, mind you, but "the" line". (whatever the heck that is?).

I believe there's much more to this story. Ironically, we all thought that Sarah and Mark might be holed up together. Now he's being asked to step down and she does instead. hmmmmmm????

Where there's smoke, there's always fire. I think she got antsy since Mark is disclosing his "other women" and she may be one of them. Just sayin'....

So out of the past 2-l/1 years on the job as Governor where her own legislature had to have pins made saying "where's sarah?" because she was working out of her home most of the time and then she wasted another 12 months campaigning, exactly how much time did this fraud actually serve as token governor?

Anonymous said...

Other than her co-conspirators on the lunatic fringe, Sarah will be now laughed off the national stage, kids, AIPster and all.

The criminal activities of the Palin clan are closing in on her and she's stepping down just ahead of a huge firestorm which she knows will publicly destroy her.

Anonymous said...

Using her poor children as her personal ego prop made americans darn near regurgitate. Of course, she was trying to create the "perfect mom" scenario (look how I can juggle it all, folks?) and then when the media probed into the lives of her political "props", she accused them of being off limits. Sarah couldn't have it both ways so she's taking her marbles and walking away.

She's one sure nutcase and needs psychiatric help - that's now certain.

One has to wonder now what other tidbits about this sociopath's personality the McCain camp will come clean about??

Anonymous said...

I wonder if they'll be putting their Spenard built home now on the market while the Diva travels the lower 48? There's surely criminal activity with the building of that home on Wasilla's dime.

I agree with Sanchez, she's pregnant again.

Where's Mudflats? Also, Too

Do they have red prison jumpsuits in Alaska? I'd say that's her color.

Anonymous said...

someone mentioned the strange Wasilla church fire - can you provide a link. Wasn't aware of that one. Add that one to the long, long list of questionable behavior, criminal misdeeds, and now total incompetence to Palin's list.

I was talking to somebody close to AKM late this morning. The Mudflats site is experiencing unprecedented traffic. Duh...

Ripley in CT said...

I was online when the Flats crashed. Word is that the Server got swamped and they are working to get it up again. Fear not, the Mudflats will be back up and running soon.

Oh the spin...spin... spin... her fanatics seem to think she wants to concentrate on 2012... NOT!!! She's finished. Perhaps now she'll just go back to being a regular member of Alaskan society. Pleeeeease don't send her down here!!!

KaJo said...

Hey, all you Republicans out there!!

She was either using giant cue cards or had a TELEPROMPTER during her news conference!

There isn't any other way she could have sped through that speech without breathing, like she was doing, unless she had the whole thing tattooed on the inside of her eyelids.

Bones AK said...

Thank God!!!!~Now wating for the hammer the size of Denali to drop!

mlaiuppa said...

Mudflats is using their wordpress account again during the server problems. It's the old site before they moved.

Wow. Hadn't thought of the Sanford angle. He did mention a few others to which he crossed the line but not "that" line. Wonder if Palin was one of them? At a conference or something.

mdlw56 said...

A guy on MSNBC saying he thinks she will go national as a fund raiser. She stepped down to go national and start being visable in the lower 48 because she's not a quitter.

And all the comments I've read down to here, really great points. I don't know. Two quits, presidency out; national tv show like a religious mother Limbaugh piped piper; or a scandal. Evil will always be with us.

After I hit post, I thought about the last sentence might not sound what I mean. I didn't mean evil would always be. Ezekiel 28:11-19

I'm guessing that there's another scandal about to be brought to light. Either that, or she's signed a contract with Fox "News" (quotation marks intentional).

More information on “grassroots” supporters gathering across the nation to support Sarah Palin for President in 2012 can be found online at www.palin4pres2012.com

Note, the website is in danger of crashing due to the flood of readers and supporters signing up to show their interest in a Palin Candidacy. The GOP establishment had better watch out, Sarah Palin and Ron Paul combined with the power of the internet will remove the stranglehold of GOP special interests and the elites who have brought the party to its knees in defeat in the 2008 elections.

mlaiuppa said...

It's looking more and more like a Federal Indictment alá Ted Stevens regarding the building of Palin's House and it's remarkable likeness to the Wasilla Sports complex and the relationship between the contractor and Todd Palin.

I'm thinking this is the most likely reason.

I was right about it being the Feds but for the wrong reason. I thought the IRS would go through 16 years of income tax audits for Arctic Cat irregularities. Not saying that won't happen. But it's looking like that's not going to be the straw.

Anonymous said...

It's looking more and more like a Federal Indictment

It's looking that way only because a bunch of bloggers are pushing this unsubstantiated rumor.

What is the source of this, Alaska Report ?

That was one of the first, if not THE first outlets to publish this information.

The teaser has been up there for months, something about Icebergs.

So where is the independent verification on this ?

Brad Blog, MSNBC, et al, are all turning to one source.

Where is SHE getting her independent verification ?

Employees at SBS ?

The Feds themselves ?

Neighbors of the Palins ?

There has been NO, let me repeat that, NO independent reporting or cross checking done on this, that is my guess.

The reporting by the Village Voice is about the closest there is. It appears that someone has dug into this angle a little bit by cross checking contributions at APOC.

Has this story been cross-checked beyond the echo chamber of bloggers ?


Just curious.

From Daily KOS :


Update: This just in my inbox, from a source connected sometimes to CNN:

"Here's a quote I got from law enforcement here in Alaska yesterday afternoon regarding Palin "a criminal indictment is pending authorization."



A "source" connected to CNN....

I wonder who that could be ?

Law enforcement in Alaska say that "a criminal indictment is pending authorization"

If that's true then that IS big news.

Why isn't anybody reporting this ?

Man, oh man are you libs the biggest bunch of morons on the planet or what? You are too dumb to realize that Gov. Palin is headed for the White House to replace that sorry socialist that you are so enamored of, while he systematically tries to destroy our country. He is even becoming transparent (agaist his wishes) to the media and the brain dead idiots in the Congress. I am going to LMAO when you are sued for defamation for spreading your lies. Did even one of you happen to read the fact that the F.B.I. said she was NOT under any form of investigation? I guess that you idiots even think that it was a good idea to cost the state $300,000 to investigate false ethics complaints...oh I am sure you think it was great to cost this woman's family a half a million, without a care one about all of the other people whose taxes were wasted because of that kind of garbage. You really are a sorry lot. Nothing but a bunch of whinney, foolish babies really.
