    I honestly have no idea what the hell she is saying or even trying to say. Something about dead fish and not being a quitter...while she announces her resignation in order to have Alaska progress.

    SHE JUST MADE SOME SORT OF COMMENT ABOUT HOW SHE HATES QUITTERS.

    WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON.

    Mxmarks, you're dealing with party Republicans here. Just realize that nothing they say makes sense, is based in reality, or is logically consistent and you'll be fine.

    The entire speech becomes increasingly incoherent. She should just crawl into a hole and hope no one remembers her in a year.

    So wait, if she resigns, who takes over in Alaska? And will it become a better place?

    Lt. Governor Parnell.

    I can't imagine how it could become worse.

    Tell me about this guy in more detail. I've got friends living in Alaska and I want to know how boned / free they are.

    I think her mind may have finally cracked. She looked and sounded anxious as fuck.

    She looked like she could hardly breathe, and just watching it made me feel short of breath.

    Now taking bets on when Former Governor Palin will say that she was so disgusted by the government forcing the stimulus money on the states that she saw no other option and had to leave as to not be personally involved in "spreading the wealth."

    All I know is his name, but he can doubtless perform a better job of effectively running the State since it doesn't seem like she ever took things off autopilot with her staff doing everything.

    Okay, I think I've figured out why she's quitting being governor 2 years before a Presidential run: Speaking lessons.

    She spent some time blaming the liberal east coast media elites for...something. Supposedly WaPo and NYT cost Alaska $2m, but I'll be damnded if I can figure out how.

    I'm hoping people on the left don't hop on making this out to be what it was all about. I don't want to jump to conclusions, nor should anyone else, because then we all look bad.

    I personally believe, that U.S. Americans, are basketball to do so because uh,
    some people out there, in our nation don’t have maps to advance Alaska
    and point guard, to advance Alaska
    I believe that our education like such as in Alaska, and the quitters,

    So Parnell launched a primary challenge against Don Young and lost by 304 votes. This is a good sign. Of course, in that race he was endorsed by Palin, so that's a bad sign.

    Yes, just yes.

    I would love some non-insane Republicans who occasionally checked their ideas against reality and things like that. Of course, Republican has been defined in such a way that it essentially means "Belligerent Religious Ideologue" lately.

    Honestly, she can't think that not having an office for nearly four years before the election would be a plus in her campaign right? Could she be planning on going after Murkowski's seat?

    Polls from a few months ago showed Murkowski crushing her for the Senate Seat.

    Oh Sarah, Sarah, Sarah.. What are you doing? Better to be king of your little molehill than fumble with yet another political campaign.

    EDIT: Also, even if she was truly being altruistic and didn't want her national ambitions to fuck up the local government, you'd at LEAST think she could wait to resign until AFTER the national hubbub starts.

    A scandal would not surprise me.

    Okay, I found a clip of her announcement, and at the start of her basketball analogy she says "point guard" - WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?

    A point guard is the guy that has the ball in his hands to bring it up the court. He is generally the best ball handler and passer on the team.

    She played basketball in high school or college or something. That's where the 'sarah barracuda' thing came from.

    Of course, you'd think that would lead to a better use of basketball as an analogy rather than a drawn out and nonsensical one, but then you'd be wrong.
