The sad part of her entertainment is,like Jackson's entertainment ,it is all "smoke and mirrors" and you have some that are so ignorant as to believe that it's real.

Not quite the same as going on a book tour... is it!?

People leave one office to serve in another public office all the time. I can't think of anyone.... anyone, that has left a Governer's, Senator's or Represenative' office voluntarily (no illnes, no jail, etc) for a personal reasons like a book tour and making more money because her office isn't paying enough!

Outrageous....
Has she lied to us about owing up to $500,000 to lawyers who had to deal with the sometimes frivolous accusations made the past few months about her it would be handy to make some money fast.

Yes, people have been known to leave public office for personal reasons, like sickness in the family and other things like that. The only think she did first in this deal was get elected in Alaska as the first woman in the office and scare the hell out of Democrats so bad they haven't eased up yet.

I am not sure that she will ever run for another office but I do think she can help many conservatives on both sides of the aisle get elected if they ask.

Alaska’s tab for ethics complaints about Palin: $1.9 million | csmonitor.com

You know Roy, if you like Ms Palin that much... that's of course your business. But I really think she's playing folks like you.

Default "Palin Says She'll Stump for Conservative Democrats"

Palin Says She'll Stump for Conservative Democrats - ABC News
The Washington Times reports that Palin plans to stump for conservative issues and even for Democrats who share her values on limited government, strong defense and energy independence.

"I will go around the country on behalf of candidates who believe in the right things, regardless of their party label or affiliation," she said in an interview, "People are so tired of the partisan stuff -- even my own son is not a Republican."
***
So far, according to the newspaper, responses from Democratic candidates have been lukewarm.

Great. Maybe Zell Miller will run for office again. They'd be perfect together.

you want to tell an individual where she can and can't go, when she hasn't committed a crime? that's odd.

Didn't tell her anything, just expressing my opinion, we can do that here you know.
