Shut up Princess Murk. She owes her career to her father. Palin has done everything by herself.

Hmmm...did Lisa listen to the speech?

Or is this preemptive; with Lisa afraid that Sarah is going to be gunning for her Senate seat next year?

I don’t see that happening...

I can only hope that the “different direction” is a full-court press on Obama for the next few years, culminating in a presidential run in 2012.

I also hope that one of her major issues is tort reform, seeing that she has experienced the fact that it costs nothing for idiots to waste government’s money (she hit on this several times in her announcement).

Lisa has her senate seat for one reason. Her Dad, who got his ASS handed to him by Sarah. Lisa is a Rhino with a D- from the NRA. How in the hell do you get a D- from the NRA when you are a “conservative” Republican from Alaska.

Answer, Your not a Conservative. Your a political left wing whore. She and her father are just a couple of reasons I hate the Alaska Republican party.

Are you calling Sarah a bitch?

If you are, I vehemently disagree. I think her move today was a terrible decision, but it’s hers to make.

She most certain is not a bitch.

What the American people deserve, is a swift kick in the ass for selecting a fascist to represent them.

If you must use the word bitch, you can use it by referring the that fascist son of a bitch.

She kicked it so hard that Frank came in THIRD place. Yup, third place. A sitting Governor. Third place. That’s got to leave a mark.

I’m not trying to put words in his mouth, but the follow up seemed to confirm the tone. I read the article, and it didn’t refer to the U.S. not deserving Sarah.

Alaska does not need any more Murkowski's in office. Her dad was a RPOS and thru the people of Alaska under the bus.

Figure the timing here.

The primary in Alaska is in August. You need about eight months to run a decent and pumped-up campaign. Senator Murkowski is a 2-star campaign player and won’t be able to stop Palin. So Palin steps in as senator and plays out her strategy until November 2015 when Palin resigns as senator and proceeds to run as President. The Republican governor naturally appoints himself as the senator and things get to be fairly interesting.

So forget the 2012 election...Palin isn’t going to waste effort on it. She has timed everything for 2016. And Murkowski? She’d best start planning to run for governor in 2016 and hope for a comeback then.

I'd love to see Sarah kick Obama so hard that she leaves a similar mark on him.

In fact, I believe she's got Obama's butt whoopin' marked on her calendar.

Huh? America will be a Marxist, totalitarian police state by 2015 if we don't take Zero out in 2012.

Or have you momentarily forgotten that there's a wannabe dictator in the White House?

We don't have seven years for Palin to take the Presidency. I'm convinced that she understands this too. I'm sure that this was one of the chief factors in her decision to vacate the Alaska Governorship now.

We have to move with all due haste, while there's still some semblance of a constitutional republic in which to do this.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska may be a bit nervous about facing Saracuda in a primary for her senate seat.
Go Cuda chew her up and spit her out.

Shaddap, Murkowski. You’ve got plenty of work to do in the Senate holding off the hordes of Hussein worshipers. Do your job, and leave Sarah alone.

I don’t see her running for the U.S. Senate. I’d have to check, but my guess is that incumbent governors have a much better track record in challenging incumbent senators than former governors do.

President is another story. The best way to run for President is to be unemployed. (Carter, Reagan, certainly, Obama showed up for very few votes during his campaign).

You’re right, I hit the post button without thinking or reading first. I am very very Pro-Sarah! I was calling the so-called Senator a B****. But I don’t believe America deserves the goodness of Sarah Palin. Americans have been blinded by celebrity and idol worship. The need to face the reality of electing a marxist.
