Caribou Barbie Resigns!


Gov. Sarah Palin will resign her office in a few weeks, she said during a news conference at her Wasilla home Friday morning. Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will be inaugurated at the Governor's Picnic at Pioneer Park in Fairbanks on Saturday, July 25, Palin said. There was no immediate word as to why she will resign, though speculation has been rampant that the former vice presidential candidate is gearing up for a run at the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

Muflats has many people trying to get to the site..LOL

UPDATE:Mudflats is up at her old site.... 'back-up.'

Mudflats is brutal. lol

It looks like we may have to deal with her for at least the next 4 years. Part of the reason for the resignation may have been 2012.... but I also think it may have had more to do with the ethics cloud she was under. She faced more ethics probes.

But there are hurdles she faces if she wants to run for President in 2012.

#1. She failed to complete a full term as Governor.

#2. I doubt very seriously if she could handle the rigors of a Primary. I don't see any possible way that she could compete with real Republican heavyweights. She would not be able to endure the number of debates... she would face an early exit IMO. (which is a good thing). But then again... Americans are gullible...and in some cases, downright stupid when it comes to voting. Many (especially Southern Republicans) tend to vote for people they identify with and who remind voters of themselves. The fact that she is not very knowledgeable on history and politics is something that some voters actually like. It's not unusual for dumbed-down Americans to go for the candidate who is just like them.... and that's part of her appeal. It's the same appeal that helped George W. Bush. This is the kind of citizenry we are dealing with.... so you can never say never when it comes to Palin... and that's why she scares the Hell out of me. There are millions of dummies ready to vote for her right now...and she just may become another accident... like W....maybe even a 2 time accident (dumb Americans put him back in office...where he almost finished off the Country completely... The American financial system was near complete collapse in Sept.-Oct. of 08.)

#3. She has limited support geographically... She would have a hard time in a General Election or Primary for that matter. She would do well in the South...and would probably struggle elsewhere.

#4. She won't be able to tout her leadership as much...since her performance in Alaska has been so controversial, especially over the last year. Plus, she failed to complete a full term. One investigation already found that she acted improperly. The ethics probes will follow her.

#5. It looks like she wants to be a pundit...and we will probably be seeing her more often on TV and hearing her on radio. She will be free to speak more openly and forcefully. But that may be good for Progressives. When she talks a lot... it's not necessarily good for the GOP. The more she talks the more stupid comments she makes :). THAT'S A GOOD THING. So if she talks often between now and 2012.... by the time we get anywhere close to election season, her foot-in-mouth syndrome or her lack of understanding of politics, history, current events, international politics, etc...will very likely take her out of contention. She won't have an elaborate campaign staff and strategy to protect her from herself.

#6. There are elements of the GOP that do not want to see her or hear from her again...and they definitely don't want her to run in 2012.

So I am slightly hopeful that we are done with this woman for good. But then again...she is a narcissist... This may be a transition to a Sarah Palin who we will see and hear more often.

Mudflats is brutal and hilarious. The thing is, the other folks running in 2012 aren't going to bow down to her. They are gonna rip her apart.

I love it..the going got tough, so I QUIT, but make me PRESIDENT?

G-T-F-O-H with that one.
