“I am now looking ahead and how we can advance this country together with our values of less government intervention, greater energy independence, stronger national security, and much-needed fiscal restraint,” the former Republican vice presidential candidate wrote in a posting on her Facebook page. Palin’s spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton, confirmed Palin wrote the entry.
One thing I did forget to mention in the previous post which is clear today – Palin is going to shove as much crow down as many arrogant, mouthy throats in the Political Industrial Complex as she can. And America will be cheering her on for the next decade as she does so. And she began today:
“To the extent several websites, most notably liberal Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore, are now claiming as ‘fact’ that Governor Palin resigned because she is ‘under federal investigation’ for embezzlement or other criminal wrongdoing, we will be exploring legal options this week to address such defamation,” Van Flein said in a statement. “This is to provide notice to Ms. Moore, and those who re-publish the defamation, such as Huffington Post, MSNBC, the New York Times and The Washington Post, that the Palins will not allow them to propagate defamatory material without answering to this in a court of law.”
The FBI reiterated that claim Saturday, telling the Los Angeles Times for a story Sunday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not investigating Palin’s activities as governor, a former mayor or in any other capacity.
“There is absolutely no truth to those rumors that we’re investigating her or getting ready to indict her,” Special Agent Eric Gonzalez, the bureau’s Alaska spokesman, said.
You go Sarah. The center will rise up and ride a wave of disgust and anger, and clean out the political industrial complex. After the parties have yacked and yacked about taking back American, Palin can ride a grass roots wave to make it happen.
Update: This guy nails it much better than I did.
To the Beltway-Big Apple pundit elites, the idea that anyone would (or could, or should) live a life not centered on the government-Ivy League-media capital corridor is simply an idea that is not on their radar. Â That Palin did not have such a life, and was not interested in such a life, was by definition a disqualification in their minds. That she was not willing to do anything to curry their favor was simply not forgiveable. The only possible reason was that she must be too stupid to realize that all wisdom worth having is contained within this rather closed circle of geographies, people and philosophies.
Its called an “echo chamber”.
