The Sarah Chronicles

As if the world would settle down and let me prepare my health care post.  Sorry, honey: the world does not stop for anyone.  Sarah Palin has announced she will resign as Governor of Alaska.  Motive?  Who knows.  My first thought was that she wanted to take a run for the Presidency in 2012 and she would be using these intervening years to read up on the issues.  Not a snowball’s chance in hell of that happening.  That would take too much time and effort and we know what a magnet she is for immediate gratification.  My second thought was that she just could not get the attention that she craves.  After all, Mark Sanford kind of cornered the market in that department.  My third thought, and I think this might be the reality, is money.  She does not have a pot to pee pee in, her husband is not a worker and the Republican party is just not interested in her.  Thus, she’s going to have to sell herself to bring in the bucks to support her designer pioneer life.  We DO know about her champagne tastes on what has, so far, been a beer budget.

If her intention is to continue in politics, she sure made the wrong choice here.  Governors do not resign;they have an obligation to their states, their positions of office are very prestigious, and governorships are the leading springboard to a run for the Presidency.  Re-election aside, she is not even going to complete her first term.  This action smacks of a repudiation of her duty to Alaskans and an abrogation of her responsibilities to the American way.  No way is this selfish act going to bolster her chances in a Presidential run.  What could she possibly be thinking?  It has got to be the money.  Remember what Deep Throat said:  “Follow the money.”

Let us bide away the hours this weekend waiting for the other shoe to drop.  I guarantee you that Palin is not done yet.

In the meantime, enjoy these Maine visions.

PALIN POSTSCRIPT

It appears that Gail Collins of the New York Times is on the same page as Yo Mama regarding Palin’s motives:

    The lupines do Miss Rumphius proud. Castine is relaxed – a good thing. Sarah Palin has a secret that we don’t know yet, but eventually it will surface – and it’s going to be BIG.

      You are right about Palin’s secret. Something’s up. Thus, my comment about waiting for the other shoe to drop. Pregnant? With twins?

    I love the lupines! Somehow they never managed to grow when we tried planting them.

    My mother had sent me the link to your post about your father’s Hebrew name being Barak, but instead when I went to your site I first saw your wishes to a newly married couple for “happiness, love, and recycling,” and I thought that’s what she was showing me! Nice posts 🙂
