fairly interesting discussion here: http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/

What Julie think?

(a) personal scandal;
(b) probable indictment;
(c) just plain craziness;
(d) looooong lead up to 2012;
(e) something else; or
(f) some combination of the above?

julie's hunch a or b.  alaskan politics very weird, and apparently she under investigation for some stuff as mayor.

and this not even wishful thinking, as julie would looooove see palin ruin for prez, although this not seem like good move toward that.  she suck all oxygen out of room for republilcans who not totally insane.

Now her attorney is threatening to sue anyone who publishes "defamatory" stories.  Yup, something's about to break.

Mmmm hmmm...fishy I say.  Fishy.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to early for a 2012 run.  Hell, it's even too early for a 2010 mid-term run.  That makes no sense.  Why resign?  None of the candidates of the 2008 election resigned their positions as they were running for office. And if that is her real reason for resigning from office now this will come back to bite her big time.

I'm with you guys, something fishy is going on here.  We'll soon find out.

Meh. She's just being mavericky. You know, since she's a maverick and all.

investigation?  http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2009-07-03/did-a-scandal-sink-the-uss-palin/?cid=hp:mainpromo2

The FBI is saying no...: http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/07/06/sarah.palin.fbi/index.html

Interesting.

Sooooo....[scratching head]....Alaska State then possibly?

Something has got to be up.  This is a weird move, even by Palin standards.
