Here Comes Wilma!

Palin resigning as Alaska gov:
WASILLA, Alaska - Sarah Palin plans to resign as governor of Alaska in a few weeks, KTUU-TV reported Friday.

Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008, made the announcement at her home Friday morning, the station said.

Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will take over at the end of the month, KTUU reported.

There was no immediate word as to why she will step down before the end of her first term, though some have speculated in the past that she may be interested in running for president in 2012.

Because destroying a Republican Senator's Presidential campaign through a mind-boggling combination of ignorance, incompetence and arrogance, then cutting and running before her first term is over, is the perfect springboard to the White House.

Run, Wilma, Run! Maybe Joe the plumber will reconsider. He's always been kinda sweet on Winky Wilma the Wasilla Wingnut.

FOX NEWS where she can hone her rhetorical skills and solidify her base.

I can't believe she stole my thunder! I planned on announcing today that, pursuant to my desire to one day make the New York Times bestseller list, I have decided to stop writing fiction. Oh, well. Guess I'll wait for the next national holiday to roll out that one...

They would make a dynamite team.

Sarah and Joe 2012! Woo-hoo!

Someone get the popcorn while I write this campaign check.

I think pattinase (abbott) is on the right trail.

This is about money, one way or another: money promised, money missing, money available.

More information on “grassroots” supporters gathering across the nation to support Sarah Palin for President in 2012 can be found online at

Note, the website is in danger of crashing due to the flood of readers and supporters signing up to show their interest in a Palin Candidacy. The GOP establishment had better watch out, Sarah Palin and Ron Paul combined with the power of the internet will remove the stranglehold of GOP special interests and the elites who have brought the party to its knees in defeat in the 2008 elections.

It now appears from Anon's comment that the wingnut politics of paranoia and resentment against ill-defined and shadowy "elites" now extends even to their own party.

There's an interesting article over at The Moderate Voice on the politics of resentment:

This should be an amusing next few years.
