Sarah Palin one year later
Today marks the one year anniversary of Sarah Palin "shocking" the political world by resigning as governor of Alaska. I put the word "shocking" in quotes for a reason. The Palin hating drones have been going non stop trying to tag her as being a "quitter". Their regurgitating claim of course is merely a half truth. The Palin hating left and even some on the right will never admit to the reason why Sarah Palin resigned a year ago today. For them to admit the obvious would shine a negative light onto them. This is what I mean. When Sarah Palin left Alaska in September of 2008 to join John McCain as his running mate in Ohio, the political world never heard of this woman. She enjoyed a 70% approval rating in her state of Alaska as governor, more importantly she had no frivolous lawsuit hanging over her head. When Palin returned to Alaska after the election, then everything changed very quickly. As soon as Palin returned to her role as governor the ethic violation lawsuits against Palin by her enemies started. The goal by the left was beyond obvious at the time. They wanted to bankrupt Sarah Palin under the crushing weight of the legal bills she racked up in defending herself. Before Palin left office, her legal bill was a little over $ 600,000. I believe that the cause behind Palin resigning says more about how evil and vindictive the left is more so then the actual act of Palin resigning.
The abstract phoniness of the left really annoys me at times. They know as do I that if they were in Palin's shoes and they had a chance to pay off their legal debt by writing a book and not declaring bankruptcy in office, they would do exactly what she did. Most Americans would have done the same thing. Sarah robbed her fanatic haters of being ruined while still in office, so they had to resort to plan B and label her a quitter instead. I understand the liberal mind like the back of my hand. These people aren't hard to figure out. Sarah is way to proud to ever admit that the cost of the lawsuits is ultimately what caused her to resign, because she knows that would be admitting that her enemies influenced her actions to resign. If she does decide to run for the Republican nomination for president in 2012, she is going to have to tackle the resignation issue head on and just come clean and admit that she resigned in order to pay off her legal debts in defending herself against 20 frivolous ethic complaint suits. Because she didn't go into detail over her resignation, many Americans believe she just resigned for the hell of it. Since her resignation, she has done more to help fight her enemies then she could have ever done while still being governor of Alaska. I didn't buy her excuse for a minute that she didn't want to be a lame duck governor. I also understand that at the time she did the right thing by not giving her enemies the satisfaction of letting her enemies know that their actions influenced her decision. The best way for Sarah Palin to get even on the left that tried to destroy her is for her to simply do what they dread her doing, just run in 2012.
