Did Sarah See Something Shiny?

Ooooooh! Shiny!

Did Sarah Palen see something shiny? Is that what made her forget to explain why she doesn't want to be governor anymore? Could that be why she forgot to remember that her constituents had enough confidence in her to vote her in for a full term as opposed to an optional time period of her choosing?

What if all of our elected officials just decided one day to wander off - say to Argentina or something.

But back to Sarah. Three theories hover about:

a. Sarah is tired of having her family beat up by the press

2. Some incredible mess is about to surface

III. Sarah doesn't wanna be governor. Sarah wants to be president.


Let's look at number a. first:

Sarah - we don't even watch the news anymore. What we think is news and what the news media thinks is news are so far removed from each other that we pay more attention to the commercials. (McFadden, Who did you say is going to pay for Michael Jackson's service?) This is what we know: We know you have some kids; you might have paid lots of money for your VP candidacy wardrobe and your hairdresser suggested you bunch your hair up on your head so you look taller. That's about it.

As for letter 2:

The FBI came right out and said they are not investigating you for anything, so whatever it is that you've done is still your little secret. On one hand, we haven't heard from the CIA, INTERPOL or the Daughters of the American Revolution, so things could still surface. On the other hand, you're in Alaska. Who cares?

And that leaves III:

Sooo, you want to be president? for how long? A year? Year and a half? Don't even try it. If you're going to just wander off from your job, which I would say is just a tad more important than say the dedicated fry cook at my Wendy's, why would anyone (other than biased news media - but that goes without saying) think you're going to stick around to do the job? If your thought is to start campaigning early, get this: I am still in therapy from being subjected to 10 years of non-stop campaigning for the last election. Not to mention Hillary's now you see 'em, now you don't crocodile tears. I'm leaving my TV unplugged until the last 3 months of the next one. So find something else to do until until July 2012.

Sarah, what's the difference between a pit bull and me? I 'm allowed in the polling booth without a leash. Oh, and I wear lipstick.

Just another day in Wasilla, huh? Great post!

Betsy said...

I disagree...this was mean!

Cynthia said...

I'm hoping it's your number 2! Wouldn't it be amazing...er...entertaining if she had a secret! :-) I'm just playing...I'm with you. Who cares? But leaving elected office early... that's odd...and must mean something. I don't think too many will vote for her...she has ruined-lowered-her constituent's trust.

BTW I left a comment on the postcard post...somehow I missed it...you do such a good job on those...lots of detail! <3

The speech was frightening and manic. This person was a VP candidate? Perhaps Maureen Dowd said it best in her interpretation of the former governor's speech:

haha! Love the difference between you and the bulldog! And oh so true about what we think is news and what news thinks is news. AND, yes, perseverance and dedication are character traits that folks do (I hope) pay attention too. Great Post - true thoughts, nothing mean (and I am much more of a conservative than a liberal!!)

MuseSwings said...

Thank you all for your comments and for your honesty! I usually steer from the political, but this latest Sarah drama was just all too strange.

Jeanne said...

Because curiosity is my worst fault, I hope we find out the reason eventually.

SparkleFarkle said...

Actually, Sarah Palin is my kind of person: a woman of many metaphors! My reality: Joe Biden is much scarier than a whole truck-load of Sarah Palins. LOL!

Sparkle, I agree. Sarah is more of a woman than most of her critics (to be clear, I know, love & respect Cynthia so she's not who I refer to)...I'd love to see how most of these jealous CRITICS would do in the spotlight that she was in!! We should beware of the Slick Willie's & Slicker Obama's of the world & realize that when someone doesn't do exactly as a politician should, maybe that's a good thing. As for leaving office early, I don't agree with it...but many have done it in the past for many reasons. Also, many have stayed in office, campaigned for another post while still supposedly representing their constituents, don't agree there either. Much rather see her or anyone leave office then seek another than just keep stealing taxpayer money & not do a good job at the post they were elected to.

Respect your forthrightness and courage to speak your convictions, Muse!

Debby said...

Muse! It's Muse, and she's back! OOoooooh!

Adrienne said...

wow! ouch! i like her.

Jane In The Jungle said...

Love you Muse....this was funny!!

Lavinia said...

I never liked her. Glad she's gone. Hope she stays away. If I never see her mug again it will be too soon. Good riddance to bad rubbish!!!

MuseSwings said...

Lavi - you're only upset about the gold mine/Russian Prince/land documents thingie, and I'm sure once the heat is off you will remember her a bit more wistfully. After all, where else are you going to get 50 lbs of fresh salmon for the price of a few hours hard labor?

quid said...

Hello from Tampa... loved the post (Debby led e here). It's a wonderful blog!

I'm not sure she was looking for something shiny.. $$$, methinks.

Heehee shinyyyy oval office. Pret-ty upholstery. Maybe we'll see some incriminating photos of her with Tom Selleck and Gabe Carter.

Hysterical and clever.

I'm more shocked that Alaska actually tried but to get away with billing rape victims for the cost of their rape kits. So Palin's a little flakey. I can get past that. Charging women for the cotton swab and humiliation after the attack? I just can't get past that.
