Sarah Palin Press Coverage

I just spent a bit of time reading through various media stories about Sarah Palin's resignation. It's amazing how many fill their story with comments from Democratic opponents and Sarah haters. It's also amazing how many recite the list of reasons she mentioned for stepping down but leave out the cost to Alaska tax-payers, how much time she's spending fighting irresponsible attacks, how much time her staff is focusing on things other than doing their job for Alaska...

One story I read included a section about a July 4th parade where they had asked Gov. Palin to participate in the parade. She didn't say she would but they "held out hope", "made signs", etc. They quoted the people as hoping she'd show up and ended with a sentence from an organizer saying she was giving up because what Governor would want to be at the back of the parade with clowns, etc.? Geez. Ya know, I was hoping that Governor Palin would come to our family barbecue, too. Why didn't they interview me? They make up stuff when they can't come up with something new.

It's a wicked-wicked press out there slanting, twisting and maligning Sarah Palin and pretty much anything 'not Obama'.

Is it any wonder so many people are turning to Fox News???

I'm going to go walk on the treadmill and burn off some steam.

It's cool. Sarah knows more about what she's doing than than the MSM. Besides, who reads those fools anymore?

I'm not a babe, but I love Sarah, she's smart, cool, and has her head and heart in the right place! Go Sarah, and by the way where can I get a Palin 2012 bumper sticker?
