Skip to comments.Ann Coulter Explains Palin's Exit

Im confused by all the confusion among the chattering classes about Palin. I thought her press conference explained it very clearly though she couldnt put it precisely this way without sounding vain, but its obvious.
Even though shes just a state governor, shes a HUGE national star who is both sought after and attacked as if she is already a president (a Bush, not an Obama). But she basically cant participate because shes tethered to the governors office up in Alaska. Consequently, she has to fight with one hand tied behind her back and she also cant go around the country campaigning for candidates and principles she believes in because shes governor and would be accused of neglecting the state.
Meanwhile, the Lt. Gov. is a great guy, so shes leaving the state in good hands and now she can go on to be an even bigger star.
Its a weird Washington insider perspective to be perplexed by what shes doing. Contrary to Mark Sanfords e-mails to his mistress, no one was really impressed with him; 99.99999999999999999% of Americans didnt know who he was. Who is more influential: Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge and Bill OReilly, or Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal and Mark Sanford (before the fall)? As Palin said, God bless people who run for political office, but and she didnt say this part shes too big to be a lame-duck governor stuck dealing with fishing licenses in Anchorage right now.
Shell be much bigger now and can play on the national stage without constantly setting off state ethics investigations by loons, parasites and liberals. None of this applied to McCain or Kerry both of whom went back to the Senate because their national campaigns diminished them. Palins national campaign made her a major star. As she said, shes not retreating, shes advancing in another direction.
Where are the Palin rumors coming from?
Sarah Palin Declares Her Independence
Woo hoo! Double rules apply! This could easily be my all-time favorite thread.
I do sincerely hope to see her sworn in as POTUS one day. Sarah Palin is IDDG!
No surprise. the brilliant Ann Coulter is absolutely right on.
It’s basically an “Arcum’s razor” thing.
I think thats Occam’s razor
This is so right on. The Republican Party is a shambles, and needs an energizing force to bring it back together and give it some power.
This is precisely what Rush has been saying for several months now.
There is NO national leadership at the GOP.
Sarah brings it.
And Sarah will “bring it”.
No surprise that Ann gets it!
Makes more sense than most of the opinions that have offered.
Just watched Ann Coulter defending Sarah Palin on FOX and had a wonderful thought, President Palin putting Ann on the Supreme Court. :)
Ann is spot on, again.
but we need media.....
we need the very few conservative and America loving rich people to buy media.....local, and national...
start somewhere, but do it....
I believe the foundation of that razor is when all other things are equal.....I do not think that exists in this case.
I’ll call it Coulter’s Razor = exposing politics for what it truly is.
BTW, there was some harridan on Fox this morning - the older woman who comments on the media ( I can't recall her name) - who was going after Gov. Palin hammer and tongs, just raving about how it was all her fault: she was poorly educated, poorly trained for political office, and Vanity Fair was right. She was so deranged she was almost frothing at the mouth. The anchor (that bland-looking guy) was really taken aback, as was I.
Be still my heart. YES... what a wonderful fantasy.
Ann Coulter has nailed it! The media must be dense along with some so-called conservative pundits not to understand.
I love Fred, but, seriously, he wimped out on us the last cycle.
The media will come through Sarah...we may not like it, but the press didn’t like Reagan, hence my new addage:
The amiable dunce is back, in a skirt and high heels.
I wish Sarah could be President. But because I like and respect her so much, I really don’t want her and her family to go through the cruelty the MSM would bring on if she ran for that office.
She could still do much good from the “outside” for this country and even the world just by speaking out for conservative and righteous causes. She is a great influence.
