It's just hit national news that Sarah Palin is not only not intending to run for re-election of Governor of Alaska, but she will step down early. Yes, she will leave her term in office early, passing the torch to the Lt. Governor.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ....... y'all are saying, right?
What would bring a politician to such an abrupt decision? Scandal about to break? Intentions of running for higher office? The latter seems unlikely given that leaving office early when you're not even campaigning seems to wreak of major scandal in alASka.
Also, this coming so soon after the interesting "Vanity Fair" feature on Palin, which included the paragraph:
"Palin is unlike any other national figure in modern American life—neither Anna Nicole Smith nor Margaret Chase Smith but a phenomenon all her own. The clouds of tabloid conflict and controversy that swirl around her and her extended clan—the surprise pregnancies, the two-bit blood feuds, the tawdry in-laws and common-law kin caught selling drugs or poaching game—give her family a singular status in the rogues’ gallery of political relatives. By comparison, Billy Carter, Donald Nixon, and Roger Clinton seem like avatars of circumspection. Palin’s life has sometimes played out like an unholy amalgam of Desperate Housewives and Northern Exposure."
Stay tuned ........... something is VERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRY fishy in alASka today.
