What's up with Republican Governors?

Was there some sort of Republican Governors convention and something was added to the water?

I just watched Ms Palin's resignation speach and it wasn't the carefull coming out speach of a new national figure, more a rambling amalgamation of talking points of prior speaches leading in no coherent direction.

Wuzup with that? Is she under investigation or something?

Admited it's been a tough week. Vanity fair had a tell all from anonymous campaign workers that wasn't that anonymous if you know who was who. It was long and pretty bad but only fun for political types, I doubt it made the MSM.

Then there was a series of old emails released by CNN about her flipping ouit over the connection to AIP. But so what? Inside baseball. No one but her and political junkies really care. Old news.

Her political bills from various shananagins have been mounting, and bloggers photoshopped the face of one of her behind kissers onto a photo of her baby. Never seemed to outwardly rattle her before. Speach was not the one of someone who is in total control of a situation.

Waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Hmmm. I didn't see this one coming. Seemed pretty abrupt and strange. Some are speculating that she's doing this to free up time for a presidential run in 2012. That doesn't make a lot of sense, though, to me.

The only potential good I see in all this is if she is able to be a viable (5% or more) third party candidate. AIP light or something. It has pretty much ruined her chances at GOP funding.

Late yesterday she was threatening to sue every blogger in Alaska as well as MSMBC, NYT and Wapo, for speculating that she might be resigning because of one of her numerous scandals or perhaps a new one.

She has been taken so seriously one blogger amongst other things today acused "Sarah Palin and Thomas Van Flien are lizard people from the planet Tralfamador disguised as human beings" Van Flien is her lawyer.

Personaly I think she's a heck of a lot of fun and a great help to the Republican Party. You betcha, wink wink.

Back in SC Sanford is staying on. No quitter him.

I can't for the life of me remember the other scandal of late. Senator? Name begins with a V maybe. Oh well, sure to be more.

I remember now, Ensign.

I have trouble with all these scandals and general messing up. Hard to keep track of.

Turns out his dad paid off that staffer he slept with for $96,000, that;s in addition to the $25,000 that Ensign kicked in. Guess there's some kind of rules they broke doing so, laws even. Felony campaign laws worth 5 years.

Pangolian, I may get kicked off bgh for this but i have to say you are a idiot. she has quit because of morons like you, there have ben personal attacks on her family and some of them even on t.v. If Letterman had attacked your family like this on public television how would you feel? You have been here on bgh spouting off your idiot liberal opinion for much longer than myself. I have been watching your idiot posts, and I am fully aware that I will be banned for this post, I do however hope that you rot in hell for making a joke out of someone who was trying to help our country.

Bud Yes Oh No! somehow I don't think you are my buddy

What can I say guy, you don't like my posts, so uhm, , , don't read them.

Oh my gosh personal attacks,,, on TV no less, good golly ms molly. I hate to tell you but some of those folks on your one and only station are making some of the attacks! and they aint personal they're substantive. Your party is splitting in two and no one knows which way to jump. Fox news took 4 hours before any mention at all of Palins resignation. Waiting for someone to tell them what to say.

Maybe stop watching TV "news" shows because it's going to get a whole lot worse. I mean what if one of these criminals do the perp walk thing and end up in the can?

I am glad you came out and said something. Try saying something besides personal attacks though. Like about policy. I mean calling someone an idiot liberal might make you feel good but I doubt it sways anyone much to your way of thinking. Speaking of which,,,, I mean just who were you talking about helping our country?

Sanford is so in love with his possible Presidential ambitions he wouldn't even take stimulous to pay all those unemployed people in his state or the teachers that were getting laid off. How do dumb kids help anyone?

Ensign has done what? Ever heard of him before? Neither have I. His dad cashed in for 300 million a few years ago. So he bought a senate seat. So what.

Your secret fantasy Sarah hasn't done didly for the folks in Alaska. Except resign, they love that. Other than be a celebrity. Budget is bankrupt. Gas pipeline deal is in the tubes. Just a quitter like in college and before she was gov and was on that oil commission.

So someone made a joke, so what! Letterman is a mild comedian, don't watch Jon Stewart, he says a lot worse all the time, about politicians from both parties. If you have thin skin don't get into politics and call people names, the late night funnies will have a ball with you.

I especially liked that Tina Fey where for the whole skit she just quotes Palin word for word. The writers didn't change anything, hilarious, you just can't make these things up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsU26FNC0sg That resignation speach was so out there and nutty that on the blogs people were wondering if she was on some kind of anti depresents or something.

Don't sweat the rant. I think you are allowed a couple. I certainly don't take offence. I'm much more bothered by some of the hypocrites who run to the mods for name calling but then do the same themselves. If you get in trouble it's not from me, I don't ever go to the mods. Even for stalkers.

So uhm, , who'd ya vote for last time?

Well said, Bud. But now I have to wipe my screen again after the diatribe you got in response.

As for Alaska's view about Palin or what she did for Alaska, pingo doesn't have a clue about her or Alaska politics. Trust me -- I live here, vote here, and have met Sarah and Todd Palin on more than one occasion. Forgive pongo, because he doesn't know what he's doing.

Just after he single handedly freed all those prisoners at the secret NVA prison camp in a secret helicopter mission behind enemby lines and became the tenth member of the Supreme Court.

I notice no mention of what the heck Palin actually did for Alaska, besides quit that is.
