    NBC reporting her as resigning, but other news outlets initially merely said she's not running for reelection. Perhaps running for US Senate after all.

    Indeed, the political arena of even the huge state of Alaska is too small now.

    Arena, or 3-ring circus?

    She is such a freak.

    I saw yesterday that there were some really fucked up e-mails that she sent while campaigning, the contents of which revealed that her husband had been a member of the Alaskan Independence party, an org that "advocates succession from the US" LOL .

    Huffpo is making reference to an "iceberg scandal" which is related to possible IRS issues, "there is going to be some fireworks this weekend" LOL

    No one can misread a situation like this women. She just opened herself to all sorts of political comments i.e. She can not run a state government and write a book at the same time, that or questions for years on what political skeletons drove her out of office. I can hear the nicknames now "Cut and Run Sarah"!

    I truly hope that the republican party can do better. I can not conceive of a situation where I would not vote for Obama but I would at least like to be given two credible options.

    At least its a good day for Alaskans!

    P.S. The tabloids are going to eat this up...I bet they say she has some rare disease!!!

    I thought the same thing... What's better than politics - television! Look out O'Reilly, your audience might make the jump to this crazy broad.

    I was doing cardio right in front of the CNN tv. When I started they said she wasn't running for reelection, but by the time I left they said she was stepping down at the end of this month.

    If she's smart, she'll run for the Senate, and the timing is right for a Senate run, but I'm hoping she runs for President, because Obama needs all the help he can get.

    Absolutely. Do you realize what a favor she is doing the GOP by stepping off the national stage?

    Of course, we still have Michele Bachmann, I hope forever.

    Unfortunately, being a Right-Wing Republican looney is not all that rare these days.

    I just saw on the local news here a piece of the press conference video where she said that since she has decided not to run for governor again, she is transferring power to the Lt. Governor, who will be sworn in as governor at the end of the month. The news said there are rumors that the move is so she can concentrate on a 2012 run for the presidency.

    And I thought it was another governor stepping down for committing adultery. Then again, she does have a hunky hubby. hahaha.
