The End of an Era....The Beginning of Another
There are many reasons why Palin's decision to step down as Governor of Alaska is simply brilliant.
It is a huge political gamble for herself personally. But I don't think that Palin cares about the way politics according to the pundits should be done. I think that she decided she had done all she could in Alaska, and it was time to close this chapter.
Many people think that the Governor (for two more weeks anyway) is self-serving and politically ambitious. Are they nuts? What on earth has led them to think that? What about this decision, or any other decisions she has made in the past, leads them to believe that she has only her own ambitions on her mind?
If that were true, trust me, she never would have made this move.
It is brilliant in one sense, crazy in another, but it is altogether Sarah.
I'll go into detail later, but this is what I will say for now: I believe that Sarah Palin has a true servant's heart. And that servant's heart leads her to want to be wherever she can do the most good. It just so happens that she has done all she can for Alaska, and she can now do more good elsewhere.
Also, I have to say I love the party that many liberals are throwing. They're sipping champagne, wearing their little party hats and celebrating the idea that Sarah Palin is finished and done.
They were never more wrong.
They will look back and rue this day. The day they thought they had her beaten was the day that she beat them.
They just don't know it yet.
So, Happy 4th of July to a now very independent Sarah Palin. Enjoy your new-found freedom.
