I guess Sarah Palin was upset that Michael Jackson was getting more attention than she was
Posted by Jill | 6:54 PM
So....anything interesting happen today?

Donna Brazile was speculating on CNN that this move is to position the Wasilla Wacko for a presidential run in 2012, though it's hard to imagine that even a party that worships willful ignorance the way the Republican Party does would be able to put a positive face on a first-term governor who didn't even finish her term.

Brad Friedman has some scoop on why Sarah Palin is supposedly taking her dollies and dishes and going home to sulk:
Alaskan Sarah Palin authority (and occasional BRAD BLOG guest blogger) Shannyn Moore, who broke the news at HuffPo today, tells me she believes, with good reason, that there is an "iceberg scandal that's about to break. She's doing damage control."

She says Palin is "resigning as part of damage control" due to a scandal that is "not of a family nature." ...

"The governor would not be able to continue her job when it comes out," she told me on the phone just now, before adding: "Why would Mark Sanford not resign, but Sarah Palin did? Her family didn't even know about the resignation until they were standing with her by the lake" when she made her announcement.

Yes. It seems another shoe, apparently a big one, will indeed be dropping, likely within the next week or so. Perhaps earlier now that everyone will be poking around up there.

If this is true, then the 2012 GOP prospects are dropping like flies, which ought to make us further question just why anyone bothers to listen to these people anymore.

UPDATE: Brad, who is rapidly becoming a Greg Palast who IS able to work in this country, is all over this, and it doesn't look pretty for Mooselini. Go. Read.

(And by the way, while Rush Limbaugh and the other wingnuts who have splooge-sticky photos of the Alaska governor in the jerkoff corners of their houses (sorry, but I was on an 8-hour flight back from Germany yesterday and the only movie even remotely tolerable was I Love You Man) will scream that this is a liberal plot against the comely Alaska governor and 2012 hopeful, my money's on Grover Norquist. The money guys of the Republican Party, having lost Mark Sanford and with the Bush name probably not ready for a comeback, are right now looking at Mitt the Empty Suit, Hypocritical Newt Gingrich, and Fat Bastard Haley Barbour as their Great White Hopes for 2012. They have to get rid of the Wasilla Wacko, and fast.)

I'd rather there not be a career-sinking scandal & that this is just what she considered her safest option. Because her base in the Repug party is the most screwball .

Nope...give me a career-sinking scandal, preferably something involving use of taxpayer funds for her own person enrichment. Sexual or personal scandals are forgiven in the Republican Party under the Clean Slate Christianity doctrine.

I have no faith in the American Male Penis to not go ga-ga when an aging cheerleader decides to wink at them, especially if the economy does not improve sufficiently in the next year.

Palin is too crazy and too dangerous to hope for anything but the worst for her.

She's having an affair with Mark Sanford.

No politician ever annoyed me as much just by the sound of their voiee & syntax. I can't stand to hear her talk.

First words out of my mouth were, "OOOOH a scandal is a comin'"

BUt gosh I was so hoping the rethugs would in another fit of the usual insanity pick her for 2012. What a fun time that would have been.
