Sorry, not buying it. In fact, I agree with George Will on Palin's 'reasons' (if you can call them that):The burden of proof AND the cost should be on the shoulders of those filing the bogus claims, but it isn't. Of course, like all "good" libs, those that hate Sarah are doing it on the taxpayer dollar.
If the political parties were reversed, the media wouldn't be reporting the claims in the ethical complaints, they'd be reporting the amount of money wasted for no reason.
They would also be screaming "innocent until proven guilty," a phrase that seems to apply only to Dims.
Frankly, MrsSmith, if you got all that from Palin's somewhat rambling and incoherent statement on Friday, then you are smarter than most conservative politicians and pundits including Karl Rove--because they don't have a clue as to what she's up to:"The one that rings most hollow is, she doesn't want to put Alaska through the terror of [her] being a lame-duck governor," Will said. "If she is just weary of it, one can understand that. Still, she made a contract with [voters] to serve out her term. And she said, in her own words, she now is a quitter."
Conservatives taken aback by Palin's decision to resign
Also, you don't appear to fully comprehend the expression to put one's foot in one's mouth.:o;)By contrast, those on the political right acknowledged that they didn't know what to make of it.
Karl Rove, the "architect" of George W. Bush's successful presidential campaigns, said the resignation left many of Palin's fellow Republicans "a little perplexed."
"It's a risky strategy," Rove told "Fox News Sunday."
"Astounding," was the pronouncement by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and conservative columnist George Will said Palin was declaring herself a quitter.
