Bad timing, Sarah Palin!
A friend from France rang this morning with the news of Sarah Palin's resignation.
My friend doesn't read my blog and is not in the least interested in Sarah Palin, but she knew I would like to know about it. Her description of the announcement: "Sarah Palin is making a simpering speech about what's best for Alaska."
Trust the governor (ex) to do something spectacular the minute I turn my back! Had I known that taking a break would precipitate events, I would have done it sooner...
Seriously, though, I'm unable to blog as usual, so from my point of view, her timing stinks. I read all the Alaskan blogs, most of the others, watched the video, saw it on BBC and I'm still stunned! I'm on my third internet coupon and will have to purchase another one...
Of course I don't believe for a minute that she's passing the ball or any of the other BS. Something big is looming and she will be less embarrassed if she's not in office when it happens. We'll be watching developments between now and the 26th, hoping that whatever it is, it will hit the fan before then.
Congratulations to all Alaskans, it's a happy, happy day!
