Any minute now, Lady Starburst will be making an announcement of some kind…probably that she won’t seek re-election as governor of Alaska.
This may be the first time I’ve ever said this, but Mark Halperin’s run-down of reasons she won’t run is pretty good, and I sort of like his Mona Lisa/Palin graphic. Not many people know that da Vinci originally intended to have Mona Lisa winking, rather than half-smiling, in the picture.
Update. From the comments:
Rick Sanchez confirms on CNN that Mooseburger will announce shortly that she’s not seeking re-election in Alaska.
Update update. She’s actually resigning in a few weeks. King David never would have done this.
Update update update. This probably isn’t connected at all, but Palin canned the state health director earlier this week. Let’s hope no one we know uses this likely coincidence as a pretext for more Trig truth-squadding.
Update update update update. Josh quotes her:
“You are naive if you don’t see a full-court press on the national level, picking apart a good point guard.”
His take is that this indicates it is the mother of all sulks. My take is that some form of national media is about to break news of a damaging scandal.
