Palin Sought to End Her Isolation

Friday, 03 Jul 2009 06:04 PM


It's probably very hard to be governor of Alaska. Located an entire day's trip away from Washington, D.C., or New York, my guess is that Sarah Palin felt isolated and out of touch in Juneau and felt that it was important to get back in the game. With President Barack Obama destroying the free-enterprise system, bankrupting the nation, and digging us into a hole of debt it will take a decade to climb out of, Palin undoubtedly felt the need to play a role when health care, our nation's manufacturing base, and so many key areas were at stake. As Eileen McGann and I say in our new book "Catastrophe," the threat to our nation could not be greater.

However, her decision may backfire. She has only been in office for two and a half years and, before that, her experience was minimal to say the least. She needs all the tenure she can get. And, the national media has painted her, unfairly, as a flake. Her critics will doubtless use this resignation to amplify that image and call her erratic and undependable.

It is a bold move on her part, but one that may blow up in her face. In the hostile media environment she faces, she can ill afford to put herself, once again, at their mercy.
