Still Gasping After Palin’s Wacko Step-Down Presser

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

palin winkCalbuzz has seen a lot of weird stuff in politics before, but Sarah Palin’s mouth-breathing stream of semi-consciousnesses — with water fowl, no less — was right up there with the strangest of them.

After serving all of two and a half years as governor, Palin has decided it would be “apathetic to hunker down and go with the flow” whatever the fig that means. So she’s stepping down to work “on the outside” (i.e. make a boatload of money as a celebrity speaker without pesky ethics investigators rummaging through her Naughty Monkeys).

Rumors abound in Alaska that federal investigators are looking at some connections between the Wasilla sports complex and the construction of Palin’s home. But Palin’s only explanation Friday was to suggest that keeping her job would be a waste of Alaskans’ tax money. WTF?

We’d love to hear your favorite riff. Ours was: “A good point guard, here’s what she does. She drives through a full court press, protecting the ball, keeping her head up because she needs to keep her eye on the basket and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can win and that is what I’m doing…keeping our eye on the ball…I know when it’s time to pass the ball for victory.”

No more politics as usual in Seward’s Icebox, promises the Alaskan Trailer Trash Queen.
