TonyfromOz prefaces …..     This is just the first story of many about this that will come. I can just see the mainstream media frenzy that will start now, all trying to find ‘dirt’, and a perceived reason on why she has made this personal decision, one that is in her own best interests, the interests of her family, her State and her Country. This decision shows class in my view. Now just watch the liberal media aim up on her, and they’ve already started.

Sarah Palin quits as Governor of Alaska. Her party waits to hear if she’s preparing a bid for the presidency:

The Alaska Republican Party has not been informed whether Gov. Palin plans another run for national office and as such cannot comment on that possibility.

But this doesn’t sound like the first shot in a campaign to be president:

Sarah Palin abruptly resigned on Friday as governor of Alaska, saying she did not want to waste her time on ”political blood sport”…

Brad Norrington speculates on other options:

The glamorous 45-year-old Governor, meanwhile, appears to be enjoying the celebrity amid rumours she might run for the US Senate next year to boost her national profile or, failing that, do a reality TV show. Asked if she could beat Mr Obama, Ms Palin said that determination and endurance made up for what she lacked in comparable physical strength. “So if it were a long race that required a lot of endurance, I’d win,” she said.

Of course, it may be that Palin wants to spare her family more of the astonishing slimes, and the inventions and fantasies that the Left has heaped on her in the most unprincipled and barbaric pile-on I’ve ever seen in politics.

Indeed, the Huffington Post, which called Palin’s Down Syndrome son a ”runt” at a time when Michael Moore and other Leftists were claiming he was actually the son of Palin’s eldest daughter, now bids a typically vicious farewell, of the kind that makes me wonder how the Left can possibly claim these days to represent a more humane politics:

In Sarah Palin’s resignation announcement she complained about the treatment of her son Trig who always teaches her life lessons. She said that the “world needs more Trigs, not fewer.” That’s a presidential campaign promise we can all get behind. She will be the first politician to actually try to increase the population of retarded people.


TonyfromOz adds …..

See the last paragraph there. It has a link to an article from Huffington Post. The article includes the quoted paragraph. Take the link and you’ll find the text ‘Page Not Found.’

Well, what do you know?

Even some things are considered too much even for them. The author of the post has now pulled his own post, and has himself used the lamest of excuses, and not bothering to apologise to Governor Palin
