Today on Tommy T’s Obsession With The Freeperati – Palin and Pals edition

Ok, everyone – I know you’re all expecting me to wade into the Bailin’ Palin thing, but it’s been pretty well trampled flat at many blogs. Let’s suit up, and I’ll see what’s left over.

Posted onFriday, July 03, 2009 1:40:27 PM byAl B.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will make what her office is only calling an
“announcement” at 11 AM local (3 Eastern) from her home in Wasilla.

Speculation is raging both in Alaska and in the Lower 48 that she’ll reveal her plans regarding next year’s gubernatorial race.

So much for today being a slow news day.

To: Al B.

On a Friday just before a long holiday weekend. Seems like kind of a strange time.

I want to see the reaction on MSNBC if the Cuda says she is running for Senate…

And I want to see the reaction on Free Republic if “The Cuda” folds like a rookie over her head in a game of Texas Hold-em that has suddenly gotten way too rich for her blood.

To: Liberty Valance

Perfect timing for all those tea parties
tomorrow. If she’s not going for re-election as governor to free her up
for a presidential run, that will surely get the buzz going.

Oh, it was definitely perfect timing for all those tea parties tomorrow.
Heh. Misery loves company.

To: trumandogz

CNN is reporting as breaking news that she is not running for re-election as gov.

Let the races begin!!!

I sure hope she isn’t caving to the attacks from the scurvy sewer-dwelling left.

It would be very discouraging if she caved in the the bullies.

Do not believe that the words “caved in” are in her vocabulary.

And then – the first tongue of flame licks through the floorboards:

Resigning is NOT a good idea, IMHO. Need to complete the term she was elected to.

To tell the truth, Republicans haven’t seen much coming just lately.
They keep looking the wrong way down the road for the bus, right until the time it hits them from the direction they’re not facing.

To: LA Woman3

Well, that makes it seem as if she is getting
out of politics altogether and that the old bats in Alaska ran her out
with all the ethics complaints. If she plans on running for Potus she
is making a mistake in resigning, of course I think she knows that.

Fox now reporting she is transferring power to the Lt. Gov. … based on a local Alaska affiliate’s report.

I said it after Sanford’s weird implosion and
I’ll say it again now – I sense some are seeing the writing on the wall
and choosing to “Go Galt.” I’m even more convinced now. And now I’m
even more in fear for my country.

However the fact she’s leaving her post
prematurely will only give the left more fodder to use against her —
disregarding the fact that she’s leaving a successful admin. thanks to
her efforts.

Yeah, not good. Zelig said the DNC already made
some statement criticizing Palin for “leaving the Alaskan people high
and dry”. Here we go…

I don’t understand why she couldn’t just stay the one more year left in her term…

    “Scurvy sewer-dwelling left”? Heeheeheeheeheehee!!!!
    Didn’t know Captain Hook was so involved in all of this.

  2. Jim Pharo says:

    Curse that Obama! Ruining everything! And now this!
    (Don’t ask how he forced Palin out. Just know that he did. He’s that powerful.)

    Dumb Question: Anyone hear about the gigantic crowds at the Tea Bagging ceremonies on July 4th?
    What? Crickets Chirping? Guess no one showed up.
    Here, in a very countrified way, the tea baggers set up a table at the July 4th celebration. So everything done in observance at the 4th (parade, presentation of the flag, etc) was **really** a “bipartisan” (i kid you not, they emphasized the bipartisan) teabagging.

  4. I sense some are seeing the writing on the wall and choosing to “Go Galt.”
    And yet they never actually “Go Galt.”
    It’s almost as if they’re all talk.
    Curious.

    Yeah, they don’t see it ‘coming’ because they are hiding out in the men’s bathrooms taking it illicitly up the bunghole before going home to their long-suffering and upholstery-wearing wives. Or they are too busy looking at their Argentine mistress’s beautiful parts…

    Oh, and CNN is running the news that the FBI said they aren’t investigating Palin.
    http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/07/06/sarah.palin.fbi/index.html
    Only problem is the news media so lax in their responsibility that they haven’t noticed that there are all sorts of feds that could still be investigating? DOJ, IRS, etc.
