What do you know, Sarah Palin has joined Marketing Sociologist in bashing the media, “"How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it's about country," the statement said. "And though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make."
Come on. Recently an Associated Press article used the word website. If the reporter had looked at an AP stylebook, which is available online, she would have seen it is Web site, not website. AP can’t even utilize its own tools?
We all know Palin is power hungry. Yet the headline for this story was, “Palin left position for 'higher calling'” Where does it say that in the above quote? Come on.
This proves how ditzy Palin is. She’s referencing people like Janet Napolitano who jumped ship after running Arizona’s economy into the ground to join Obama’s staff. Just say that. It’s about communication, not power, Ms. Palin. You should know this, you have a "communications - public relations" degree like EVERY other beauty queen (see here).
A smart governor would have said, “If Gov. Mark Sanford won’t resign, I will!”
Realize from now on, when you hear Palin say, “It’s about country,” she’s confused. She means “power,” not country.
Also, Ms. Palin, you may be religious, but in your vast knowledge try not to mix metaphors between you and Jesus’ crucifixion – “of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make." The innuendo is there, Governor. Get a dictionary for Madame Governor so she knows what metaphor and innuendo are! Probably weren’t covered in those beauty pageant public relations courses.
Addendum - King maker Karl Rove gave Palin's presidential bid the "kiss of death" (evidently she isn't paying him) on a Sunday morning show - "She marches to the beat of her own drum, and it's going to be very interesting to see how she pulls this off," Rove said.
For those who don't understand politics, this is code for "she's not using me, she's dead."
Rove futher stated, "It is not clear what her strategy here is by exiting the governorship 2 1/2 years through the term and putting herself on the national stage that she may not yet be prepared to operate in." (Kiss of death again.)
"She did a great job during 63 days during the fall campaign of 2008 (read, "I was getting paid well then") ... but now she's going to have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of days between now and the 2012 election, and she's going to raise expectations about how well and how visible she's going to be early on in that struggle," he said.(3rd time Kiss of death - didn't Peter deny Jesus 3 times?)
P.S. Madame Governor - in your statement, you used "And though," starting a sentence with a conjunctive clause. You may want to question your PR person if she meant "Although." I can see where a literacy test would clear that little issue up - Some Alaska 3rd grade class must have one to help you with that.
