In a week of stunning news, Sarah Palin may have topped them all today. She announced that she will be leaving her post as Governor of Alaska. Her speech of resignation was reported to be a bit rambling, and she didn't specifically state why, but we have worked very hard since we got off of work an hour ago, and we have it pegged down to two different reasons. They are interrelated, so we'll let you decide which is the more credible reason. Here they are:
#1 - Sarah Palin is moving to South Carolina to save the state and the GOP.
#2 - Sarah Palin is having an affair with Mark Sanford.....
We're thinking that Number One is the more credible, mainly because I've already rented the extra bedroom in my house to Sarah for $275 a month - she's a hard negotiator, man.... The actual reasons were all over the place - too many investigations, she's running for President in 2012, she didn't want to be a lame duck Governor, too much media exposure, or there is SOMETHING coming out soon.... Who knows??
My initial take is that she is ready to leave Caribou Country, and get on the national stage. Not necessarily as a Presidential candidate though... Good or bad, Sarah Palin is a star in the GOP, and she's ready to hit the Big Time, and cash in.... Remember our post from last fall - she is by no means a rich person. Her and Snowmobilin' Todd are Upper Middle Class at best, and the next three years are the time to rake it in.....They've got a slew of kids and a grandbaby to provide for, and Mama Bear is gonna strike while the Iron is hot.
Of course, it could be Number Two.....
Just a quick note. I checked with Blog Net News, and of the over 50 SC Political Blogs they cover, this was the single highest read post on any of them yesterday... I really had no idea how many of you read SC6, but I am starting to get an idea, I am truly in awe, and I wanted to say thanks. We haven't cracked the Top 20 on their Influence Rating, but we've only been on their list for a week or so. We'll get there......
