I'm watching an explosive version of our Channel 11 news tonight after an unbelievable announcement this afternoon by our governor hottie, Sarah Palin.
Apparently while my family and I were enjoying a pre-Independence day train ride and float trip down South, our Lady of the Day was hosting a press conference on the deck of her fancy Wasilla home. For the sake of the Alaskan people, she stated, wiping an imaginary tear from her imaginary-prescription glasses, Sarah Palin resigned as governor of Alaska, effective as of the date of the Governor's Picnic.
Oh. And why did this shake up occur? "It was the hell-yeah that clinched it," quoting the apparent votes by her family stemming from what must be a lousy way to live if you are the Palin children or Spouse.
There will be more, however. You betcha. As sure as Russia is right across the pond, there will be more. In the meantime, I'll raise a glass to certainly the most interesting year in Alaska politics...
