The Odd Palin Resignation

By    |   Friday, 03 July 2009 06:12 PM

It has just been announced -- on a Friday afternoon of a holiday long weekend -- that Sarah Palin is giving up her Alaska governorship with a year and a half remaining in her term.

What is going on here?

Why is this happening?

Who has ever heard of giving up a governorship mid-term to -- allegedly -- run for the 2012 GOP nomination, which is three-plus years away?

I am scanning the TV, and those debating the issue are not seeing this thing right; they are not asking the key why on a Friday afternoon question.

Friday afternoon is the time you dump out bad news in hopes of it getting lost in the Friday late-afternoon weekend getaway syndrome.

But if Palin is all well and happy, why make such a sudden announcement like this? Why not hype it and make a big deal out of it by getting the national press to come up to Wasilla? No, she suddenly announces this on a Friday before the Fourth of July?

No, there is something more here. After John Ensign and Mark Sanford, there is something bad going on here. She may very well be being forced from office -- suddenly indeed -- because of some threatened revelation.

I am amazed at the idiocy of the so-called “political analysts” on TV; they are not thinking smartly at all. They don’t see -- or don’t want to see -- that this story smells to high heaven!

OK. Let’s watch this as it develops. One thing is guaranteed: it isn’t what it seems.
