    time to bust out the bubbly!

    ok Liz, tiny thread, big news ;)

    her resignation speech was pretty lol worthy. she tried to touch on so many buzz words/phrases that the whole thing quickly became convoluted and nonsensical. it took about 12 minutes, waiting through patriotic talking points for her to actually get to the statement of resignation.
    whatever point she was trying to make got lost between contradictory messages about why she could no longer act as governor on her own terms.

    I mean, didn't she gain that office on the platform of combating the old boys network and taking on special interests? yet in her little spiel, she says that she could no longer put up with the demands of those who wanted her to "go with the flow" and play their game. she doesn't want to put her precious Alaskan's through the pain of watching her compromise her values, saying that those who do are taking the easy way out.
    but she's resigning. isn't that the easy way out?
    I thought she was accusing everybody of being sexist when they raised the concern about her being a family-oriented woman, juggling the demands of her job. and now she's essentially admitting that her personal life has gotten in the way of running the state to the best of her ability. uhhh, hello?! ironic....

    whatever, at least this means she won't run in 2012. as if she had a chance in hell to begin with.

    I'm calling sextape with one of her staffers as the reason for the resignation.

    Sarah Palin is a hate magnet for some of you. It's almost as bad as the stuff you ridicule others for doing.

    Agreed. I don't recall her doing a terrible job up there in Alaska (okay, not a terrible great job, mind you, but chica didn't screw the pooch), so what's with all of the hate? Granted, she's a terrible presidential candidate and there is no doubt in my mind that she's trying to free her schedule to begin campaigning in the frightfully near future (perhaps the end of '10) for her bid, but we'll cross that river when we get to it.

    Yeah, but that's the beauty of debating politics on a forum with people you don't know.

    I was primarily ridiculing her speech. Which, if you watched it in full, was deliriously constructed and poorly delivered. No one hates Sarah Palin. They dislike what she represents and just hope this isn't the beginning of a star-studded 2012 presidential run.
    because that would be ridiculous.

    No one cares. Let her disappear into obscurity by never mentioning her again.

    at least the Dem's "Hollywood star" graduated Harvard Law magna cum laude during which he became the first black president of their Law Review.

    Palin has a bachelors in journalism/communications from the University of Idaho.
    you betcha.

    Her attacks were political, she and her family were attacked personaly. Noone can't stand this for too long. She was considered incompetent but I never saw her being impolite, at least against Biden.

    I must differ with you sir. I hate Sarah Palin. I hate every last part of her.

    See a vice presidential candidate stand up in front of a crowd and talk about how great it was to be in real America, in the pro-America part of America, filled me with so much rage and bile that I do believe I will hate her and everyone around her for the next decade at least. Having her give a smug non-apology ("Well I'm sorry if you misinterpreted my out-of-context etc. etc.") afterwards, pretending like she had no clue what she'd said, firmly rooted it in the shriveled black husk that I call a heart.
