I’m not sure how “stepping down” helps anything. One thing is for sure. Palin loves being in front of the camera. She loves the spotlight.
Alan Colmes has more:
In her bizarre farewell speech as governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin fed red meat to the right-wing, invoking patriotism and the military in her first sentence. It was unclear to whom she was referring when she talked about those who are “tearing down our nation”, “American apologetics” and unmentioned forces “suggesting that our best days were yesterdays.” How can that be, she pleaded, when there are volunteers willing to fight for our freedoms.
Next it was on to criticizing the press, lecturing them that soldiers “are willing to die for you,” so “quit making things up!” And the new governor, Sean Parnell, has a nice family too, “so leave his kids alone!”
After what sounded like a campaign speech for re-election, it was time to defend gun rights, and warn that “You’re going to see anti-hunting, anti-Second Amendment circuses from Hollywood.” This will be done by using “delicate, tiny, very talented celebrity starlets” who will “use Alaska as a fund raising tool for their anti-Second Amendment causes.” Luckily, “patriots will protect our individual guaranteed right to bear arms.” And “Hollywood needs to know we eat, therefore we hunt.”
If she stayed governor then people would not have noticed her. If she leaves office then she can travel and the cameras will follow. She is money grabber and is looking at every angle to be in the spot light. Sad isn’t it that the media follow her like a dog in heat.
another great post. thanks.

and yeah, she does love a camera… and a microphone, doesn’t she?
The resignation ceremony itself was dignified yet highly emotional.
[…] Sarah Palin seriously. Does anybody understand why she left her governorship? Basically, she gave a speech announcing that she was leaving the governorship never stated why she was leaving. So, fundamentally, she […]
