Dear Senator Murkowski: STFU

I like Sarah Palin. I think she's been a good governor, and I voted for her in the Presidential election (Lord knows, I didn't vote for McCain). Texans and Alaskans like one another; we like the can-do attitudes, and we both have a great oil bidnez that rewards wildcatters and those who take chances. We admire self-reliance, and don't like handouts

I was therefore very interested in her resignation from Alaska's governors office. I don't know why she did it, and I don't really go in for a lot of speculation. Folks that guess others' motives typically guess wrong. So I thought I'd wait until Ms. Palin tells us why she's doing this.

Now we hear from Alaska Senator Murkowski:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, today made the following statement after Gov. Sarah Palin’s announcement that she plans to step down as governor later this month.

“I am deeply disappointed that the Governor has decided to abandon the State and her constituents before her term has concluded.”

Sen. Murkowski is in interior Alaska and communicating via satellite phone and is unavailable for follow up questions. She will be available on Monday afternoon.
Since I don't know Palin's motives, and I don't think Murkowski does, either, I think that Lisa-baby should shut her pie-hole until we find out a little more. What if there's a medical reason for Palin to step down (God forbid)? Murkowski would end up needing a bucket of barbecue sauce to eat those words. It's hard enough defending against all of the Democraps who are trying to make sure Palin has no credibility should she run again. We don't need fellow Republicans piling on.

I'm happy to give Palin time to tell us all what's up. Until then, let's all concentrate on seeing that Obama fails.

I share those sentiments, with the exception of her future political career. That is over. It ended on July 3rd IMO.
