Thanks! You don't know how hard I'm trying. Spent some time in Nashville at a convention talking with two guys from Alaska who are trying to help me figure out a way to move there. They even shared their ammo source with me! Now THAT's neighborly! It's just a matter of time...

Correction. Not "the person." You mean, the thing whatever it is.

In other words, she is the lowest of the low - one who professes & preaches but never practices.
True for sure, but I disagree in that many politicians have done this, and pray TV bible bangers have disgraced themselves, but still a skunk even cloaked in different disguise (not going to to wolf thing) is still a skunk, and she has shown her true colors (smell) to the residents of Alaska, and the whole US for that matter.

Maybe team Sarah is going to train for a triathlon and swim over to Russia to visit her neighbors?

If, as she said, she's bowing out because she isn't going to make herself a target for frivolous lawsuits...good for her. I love it when the eastern, limo liberals get the wind poofed out of their sails. Too funny.
It will remain to be seen what Sarah Palin does next, but I'm thinkin a big TV deal, so she can laugh all the way to the bank and STILL influence politics.

Well, on that I certainly agree, we did elect her. However the terms of her election didn't include walking away early. One thing about Palin, regardless of wheter I agreed or disagreed with her policies, she has always been stubborn, to the point of being obstinate even when she was out on a limb. Now she just up and quits? WTF? I too have a suspicion that she's got some kind of multimillion dollar deal in the works. Maybe we'll see her on Fox news in between Hannity and Beck!

All the other state forums have people from all over the world on them. We are at an online party having a conversation.
I just find it amusing that so many who don't live in Alaska have such an interest. Seems Palin generated more interest and posts then other governors. Not a fan of hers but she sure generated some kind of strange "fear or envy" from so many, including lower 48'ers.

Must be an awfully short triathlon, after all she can already see them from...

Yeah; something must be up. She never struck me as a quitter either. There's some rumors popping up about some sort of pending criminal charges, but that's to be expected.

I think we ought to start making book while we can, Moose.
