Sarah Palin and the Republicans

Wow. Things sure get cold in republicanville after a lost election. Especially, the vice presidential canidate is a relatively good looking woman. But wait – that is what they hated so much about Hillary in 1994 – wasn’t it? She was just too good looking to be a successful lawyer in her own right. Too pretty to fix health care. Sarah Palin has resigned from her governorship, probably for personal financial reasons, as well as the other big secret of state government – the job is incredibly boring. If it is not then why do the more interesting of the political types have these oh so secret lives, chasing interns, teleporting themselves from the hiking trail to Buenos Aires via the Atlanta airport, or cutting brush in 100 degree days in Texas. If being a governor is not so incredibly boring then why is it governors need these distractions? Lets face it being a governor IS incredibly boring. Sarah had a relatively simple choice. She could find trouble to get into. She could countinue the Obama bashing the republicans wanted which does not ring well one populist against another – party differences and looks aside. Otherwise, she could resign and go fishing. The republican pundits are of course having a field day, but one should look beyond the pundits. There has been a coordinated attempt by a handful of Republicans operatives in Alaska to destroy this Republican governor. Why? Because there is more to this than the fact she is a Republican. She is not the right kind of Republican. Republican women who make it to the big time are the daughters of wealth, power, pomp and circumstance. Not Sarah Palin.
