On her way to jail?

From the Guardian and every place else:
Alaska governor Sarah Palin, former Republican vice-presidential candidate, said today she is resigning from office at the end of the month, raising speculation that she would focus on a run for the White House in the 2012 race.

My speculation, on the other hand, is that a humongous scandal is about to break and that she'll be spending months if not years in courtrooms and committee rooms.


  1. I hope you're right!

    hehehe ... my secret word is 'desserts' -- as in 'just'?

  2. That was my first guess, then I thought about how a few things have gone lately.

    Keep an eye out to see if the Republican senator from Alaska, Murkowski, has a scandal instead. Maybe Blagojevich made me suspicious, but the other thing that could happen is that she's resigning so she could be appointed to a Senate seat.

    Food for thought. See: Ford, Gerald R.

  3. It is all very strange.

  4. Great Op-Ed in the New York Times (Gail Colins), with this as an aside:

    "People, what is going on with governors in this country? Are we doomed to see them go bonkers one by one, state by state?
