Thoughts on Sarah
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge Sarah Palin fan. So naturally I was shocked when Sarah announced yesterday that she will be resigning as Governor of Alaska. In the following hours I heard many comments regarding this development from many different people. Some have said don't worry, this means she is gearing up to run for president. Others have said this means she's out of politics for good. However, running through everyone's comments are, why did she really do this?! Simply asking this question has led us to make ridiculous speculations. In doing such we are simply proving Sarah's point when she spoke about the magnet on her parents' refrigerator that states "Don't explain, your friends won't care, and your enemies won't believe you anyway." Politicians and journalists do not believe that Sarah could possibly be resigning for the reasons she stated, the good of her family and the good of the state of Alaska, because Washington has never seen a politician who did not operate out of ulterior motives. Therefore, they can't believe that she doesn't. Yesterday Sarah asked us to trust her with this decision. She has never lied to the American people before, I don't think she's gonna start now.
