Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska announced Thursday that she would step down by the end of the month and not seek a second term as governor, allowing her to seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012.
Ms. Palin, who was Senator John McCain’s vice presidential running mate in last year’s election and rallied the party’s conservative base, explained her decision at a news conference at her home in Wasilla, accompanied by her husband, Todd, and other family members.
“We know we can effect positive change outside of government,” she said in making the announcement.
Well, the country is in desperate need of another right wing keynote speaker. If that won’t fix the economy, then what will?
Of course, only someone with Palin’s unique sense of what it means to tell the truth could tell people in 2009 that she wants make change “outside of government” and then announce a bit for President in 2010.
