Since the Ed Show has tripple the ratings of "Almost anything goes"......
 
I don't care much for quitters
First off, I don't care much for quitters..... so that has me a little concerned.  Not fulfilling your committment like that isn't kosher at all.  Granted, perhaps there is more to this story that has not yet been revealed... but there you have it.  Sarah doesn't have the Midas touch, she certainly can do wrong and make mistakes.  I have no illusions about that and conclude that she can do no wrong.  We shall see as that goes.

Something else to follow
So therefore I think something else is to follow.  TV show of "Oprah" or "Huckabee" style?  Some kind of governmental position?  Will she be the lead face of a certain organization?  Does Obama have some kind of new Czar position he has decided to bestow?  Is a senate seat in her sights?  It "sounds" like she will have a national focus of some kind but that is not clear.

Presidential 2012
Perhaps this, or 2016 is the target here but one thing is for sure.  If she has to depend on the media to illuminate her character to build a foundation... It is clear from the past media coverage that over half of the exposure will be beliteling, disparrraging, and unfair and serve an "agenda", which leads me to......

Revealing her persona
...if she does have a hope of a future she needs to get herself in front of the country in a venue where everyone can get to know her without this bias. For example, Huckabee started a show on Fox News.  I don't watch his show, but what little bit I have seen has given me an insight into his character and beliefs that is not clouded by some whack-job Olberman or high-powered female correspondent trying to make a name by punching him in the eye on behalf of Obama (to tie the election history to the discussion).

Sounds like a good speach, video to follow.....

Well, more information has come out......

 

Additional details on the situation:

 

$  500,000 - Sarah Palin's costs surrounding dismissed charges

$2,000,000 - The Lt. Governor says Alaska paid additional staff payroll just from document requests on 15 dismissed items

 

$ unknown cost - Costs for judge, stenographer, courtroom staff, office supplies, office equipment, various attorneys, research assistants, etc.

 

$ unknown cost - Can you imagine the burden on a state government where they normally are not used to a 20,000 person legal army invasion to attack their governor?

 

Looks like it is a pretty big number.  Assuming the foreign (foreign to Alaska anyhow) attacks would probably have chosen to prosecute their strongest case first.... meaning the 15 charges already exonerated..... I can't imagine continued attacks and their cost would do Alaska any good.

 

That has me considering the wisdom of her decision to avoid a continued burden on Alaska from more lawsuits.

 

She may have made the right call, even if it is unfortunate and will do her damage in the long run.  She did what was best for Alaska... it seems to me.  Kudos to Sarah for doing the right thing even though it wasn't the most expedient thing for her career.  We need more politicians like that.

    EXACTLY!!!!!    That's why I believe we need here in some policy making capacity,because I believe she'll do what's best for our country.

I didn't realize that her new article came out.  Thanks for the heads up.  She is always an entertaining read.... mostly because even if her rhetoric is crass and offensive.... the point behind her message ALWAYS rings true.

I noted the trigger discipline right away in that photo.  Safety first.  It appears that the picture may be a photoshop.  I am not sure.
