Something smelled rotten when Sarah Palin claimed out of the blue she felt a “higher calling” and was abandoning her post as Alaska’s governor.
Everyone’s asking, “What next?” You can bet your treats she’s not thinking “homebody.” She’s been the family’s main breadwinner.
Obviously, someone has made her an offer she can’t refuse, and it’s in the lower 48. Move over, Ann Coulter.
I predict Palin intends to become the female Rush Limbaugh or a neocon Oprah — with a venue to make her a daily thorn in Obama’s side. She was just warming up when she took this swipe in her resignation speech, saying…
“And though it’s honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make.”
She’s already threatening to take legal action against bloggers and any other media outlet that says anything about a Palin she doesn’t like. She wants hers to be the only voice heard, even if it means trampling everyone else’s freedom of speech.
One reason she cited for resigning was all the bashing of her family, as if she herself didn’t parade them whenever it served her purposes as John McCain’s running mate. Now the woman who claims she has the chops to be president suddenly can’t take tasteless jokes at her children’s expense.
I suspect Palin believes some divine power has anointed her to lead the Republicans from their ideological wilderness and fill their leadership vacuum. In gratitude, they will draft her as their presidential candidate in 2012. That’s why she’s keeping her PAC alive.
