Palin passes on governor reins early

U.S. Government Comments (0)

The loved and loathed Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, 45, resigned her office yesterday, and from what all the news reports have said, she did it pretty quick, fast and brash.

According to online news site Reuters, Palin dropped the bomb without taking any questions from the media, and hinted at branching out with her political influence. Some analysts, as the article reported, think she was implying that her leave would give her time to prepare for the 2012 election.

Wow…ya think? I wonder how much money those analysts make in a year making predictions like that….

“We are not retreating, we are advancing in a different direction,” Palin said, as Reuters reported. “We know we can effect positive change outside government at this moment in time.”

Palm spoke in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell and her state cabinet were by her side and say her decision came after a good deal of “prayer and consideration.” She also announced that Parnell would take over the job on July 26.

Palin’s term as governor wasn’t up until the end of 2010.

It’s true that Palin has held, and probably will continue to hold some major pull in the Republican domain, but how can you blame the woman for this decision? The media have been in a frenzy over her since McCain picked her as his vice presidential running mate. And not only have the media attacked Palin herself, but they’ve attacked her family, particularly Bristol Palin, due to the the whole child out of wedlock ordeal.

Maybe Palin is relinquishing the reins as governor of Alaska to prepare herself to take on the presidential race in 2012 and maybe she’s just taking a break from the mess that has been her life for the past year.

Whatever her reason, I don’t blame her.
