Shocking news today, Sarah Palin abruptly announced her resignation as Governor. Why is she resigning? Rumor and speculation she has signed a $11 MILLION dollar book and television deal. Others speculate, she will work on her DC connections for possible run for the Presidency in 2012. Personally, I think it’s the $11 million dollars, I would say SEE YA as well.
In the last year, Palin’s family has had multiple scandals including drug arrests and teen pregnancy. She has been the relentless target of tabloid media, ever since McCain announced her as his running mate.
Palin, a free spirited Aquarius girl, likes to march to her own beat. With Neptune hitting all her planets, it looks like cosmically she is disenchanted with politics, and hears Hollywood calling.
Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska abruptly announced on Friday that she was quitting her job at the end of the month, shocking Republicans across the country and leaving both parties uncertain about whether she was leaving national politics or laying the groundwork for a presidential run.
s. Palin, 45, the Republican vice-presidential nominee last year, was supposed to serve through the end of 2010; she said she would cede control of the state to Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell on July 25.
Speaking outside her home in Wasilla, she offered conflicting signals about her intentions. In her tone and some of her words as she made the announcement in an often-rambling address, Ms. Palin sounded like someone who was making a permanent exit from politics after what her friends have described as a rough and dispiriting year.
She made the announcement standing with her family. At one point she described how her children had voted in favor of her doing this — “Four yeses and one ‘Hell, yeah!” she said — suggesting that the family had had enough of the scrutiny that has made them tabloid staples.
Lyda Green, a Republican and former president of the Alaska Senate who is from Ms. Palin’s hometown and who counted herself a friend until a falling out in recent years, said she took the announcement as tacit confirmation that Ms. Palin was running for president.
“The longer she stays in, the more people become disenchanted and see something they hadn’t seen before,” Ms. Green said. “This has been a pretty precipitous fall.”
In her rambling resignation speech, she talked about focusing on family. She not only has a disabled son but a teen daughter who has a baby to raise as well. I don’t know, she just looks like quitter, why can’t she finish her term? What is with the catch phrase “lame duck.” Is there another HUGE scandal coming her way? Either way, the next six months astrologically look very interesting for her.
