BREAKING NEWS: Gov. Sarah Palin Resigning

gov-sarah-palinGovernor Sarah Palin is about to hold a press conference, and information being reported prior to the PC is stating that not only will she not run for re-election for governor of Alaska, but that she is resigning her governorship and handing over the governorship to Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell at the end of the month.

As soon as I can find video of the press conference, I will embed it, and I will update this post as more information comes in.

UPDATE: Greta is reporting that Sarah signed a letter two weeks ago looking for funding for SarahPac.

UPDATE: It looks like Sarah Palin is stepping down because Alaskans are spending money defending Governor Palin against the political smear campaign and ethics violations.

UPDATE: She is resigning because she doesn’t want to draw a paycheck as a lame duck governor.

“I am determined to take the right path for Alaska even though it is not the easiest path,” Palin said after the announcement, according to a press release from her office. “Once I decided not to run for re-election, I also felt that to embrace the conventional ‘Lame Duck’ status in this particular climate would just be another dose of ‘politics as usual,’ something I campaigned against and will always oppose.”

    Her dignity continues………an example again.

    Comrades Obama and Axelrod will now crank up the smear machine and take it to heights never seen before. The radical left is already filling the blogs with hatred for Sarah Palin. She truly has a servants heart and it is better to step down from her governors job now and busy herslf with trying to save America from the Communist Obama. McCain had her muzzled during the campaign, but now she can speak from the heart directly to every person who truely loves America. I’m a life long Democrat but if she runs for President I will support her. The leader we were looking for may be rising in the west, but I pray she is careful because the minions of the Communist Obama will do anything to stop her, and I mean anything.

    Give em hell Sarah!

  3. Ladies and Gentlemen: Now that Sarah is no longer a “public figure”, anytime she gets attacked it will look like what it is – a smear campaign by very fearful people. Now maybe Alaska can get onto regular Alaskan business instead of spending all their time and money defending the next president of the United States.

    This IS the beginning of Sarah’s 2012 Presidential Campaign and I will be doing everything I can to make sure she unseats the fraud in our WH.

    Count me in. Monster. I will be right there with you and the countless others who will be supporting this magnificent woman.

    I saw her press conference on tv this evening and I cheer her on with all my heart.

    You’re so right. Now the dirt starts flying. They are scared to death of her and it will be “no holds barred”

  5. Ron says:

    More information on “grassroots” supporters gathering across the nation to support Sarah Palin for President in 2012 can be found online at http://www.palin4pres2012.com

    Note, the website is in danger of crashing due to the flood of readers and supporters signing up to show their interest in a Palin Candidacy. The GOP establishment had better watch out, Sarah Palin and Ron Paul combined with the power of the internet will remove the stranglehold of GOP special interests and the elites who have brought the party to its knees in defeat in the 2008 elections.

  6. Ron, I don’t think any of the east coast elites realizes exactly what just happened. I’m grinning.

  7. My take (and fervent wishes) here:

    About Sarah Palin…

    http://insightanalytical.wordpress.com/2009/07/03/about-sarah-palin/

    Excerpt:

    …I would love it if she spearheaded a third party. Basically, I’d love it if she essentially started campaigning against Obama by going after the creeps around him, some of whom have been going after her in Alaska. She can also talk about the Republicans who join in the game. She can without any problems call out the elites in D.C. I think the harsh attacks on Palin belie a great deal of fear…She has nothing to lose, so I would love to see her really unleashed on her own terms.

    However, if she chooses not to, that’s OK…because I don’t want to see her go down in a small plane “accident”…

    Right now the punditry and the elite are rather shocked, it seems. Well, screw them! We’ve been inspired by the women of Iran recently and maybe here in the U.S., we can be inspired by a woman who isn’t afraid to go out there and be herself and speak her mind.

  8. PS–Funny, I mentioned Ron Paul, too, in my piece!!

  9. Mike Mose says:

    She’ll going into full campaign very shortly raising tons of money and sucking the air off Obama. Every time Obama, Reid and Pelosi sign law,Palin will rake in 20 million for 1st and 2nd amendment people. She knows that the country can no longer be trusted to either party!

    Palin will be the 1st 3rd party candidate to win the WH.

    This is absolutely great news! Where can I get a sign!

  10. Mike is right – every time our non-representatives do something we have been screaming against doing, Sarah’s warchest will get bigger. Everybody has to know that Mishy is breaking out in hives and throwing up since she heard the news. Has everybody else figured out that Axelrod, Rahm and Mishy are running our government?

  11. Don’t forget Mitt Romney, Bush’s boy…and his lousy healthcare plan which has morphed into the Obama/Democratic plan….

    Mitt can’t be too happy right now…

  12. I know Mitt is pissed – he’s the guy who was behind the Vanity Fair piece.

  13. Leaping Spark says:

    No matter what she said, I believe that Sarah Palin could not sit quietly in Alaska watching Obama destroy America any longer. She also is very aware that America needs a leader. The Republican hopefuls Romney, Pawlenty, Allen, and Gingritch are all losers. Obama is a loser as well and even with ACORN is defeatable in 2012. Sarah Palin is a consumate politician and has just made a brillant political move by waking up what would have be an unusually somber 4th of July with some fire works of her own. Obama has to be in a panic mode now because he realizes she will awaken grass roots America against his Communist regime, and fuel the fires of liberty and freedom. Soon the chants of USA, USA will be ring across America. Hopefully Sarah will be the keynote speaker on 9/12/2009.

  14. Kristen says:

    Go Sarah go! I can’t wait to see her tear into Obama! I smile just thinking about it. She will raise tons of money! And I truly hope she runs for president. I am so sick of corrupt people supposed to be representing us. She is a force unlike anything I’ve ever seen. And the vile hatred from the left is really something. They are so scared- I totally love it that she isn’t backing down and now she can respond to all the crap they spew at her because she is a private citizen! Go Sarah!

  15. Leaping Spark says:

    Word is hitting the internet from the left that a federal indictment for embezzlement is coming Sarah Palins way and that is why she resigned as governor. Obama’s sycophants have alledgedly discovered that she used embezzeled money to build her Wasilla home. Obama is a lying POS and is not going to stop until all threats against him are destroyed. I don’t know if the embezzlement charges are true but it could be a good way for Obama to put Palin out of his misery as she was the only legitimate challange to his dictatorship.

  16. Sarah Palin is resigning as the Governor of Alaska. I know who is going to miss her the most, the left leaning Mainstream Media. Who will they use for a Punching Bag Now? No more PDS, Palin Derangement Syndrome, to try and bolster their lousy ratings, and dismal newspaper subscriptions . When many of her detractors, go on one of their many irrational rants, about the soon to be late Governor of Alaska. They can expect the response to be: So What, and Who Cares? Sarah Palin isn’t part of the Government anymore, she will be a private citizen. The Easiest Way to Win At Tug Of War.
