Sarah Palin Hates the Media

Sarah Palin hates the media and all those smarty people in it. All the people who have been keeping track of her track record and annoying her message with facts and actualities, she hates them. She hates them all so much her revenge was announcing on the Friday of a three-day holiday weekend, when many members of the elite media were vacationing at no-doubt elite places, she would hold a press conference late in the day and tell all via the media she wasn’t taking “the quitters way out,” she was in fact quitting. She announced she will step down from Governor of Alaska at the end of the month.

So the media people who were on vacation suddenly all had to call-in to the second tier anchors, type their witticisms on their phones and otherwise put down their snooty nose plugs and 100 proof sunblock to try and translate some “Palin speak” even though they’ve gotten a little rusty since the campaign.

So the media people who cared (enough) to sober up long enough to wonder why a first-term governor with little executive experience and an eye on the big prize of the White House would refuse to gain anymore executive experience. They all wondered if there was a scandal. Because a scandal would make sense. Dodging an indictment would make tons of sense. Oh yeah, those media elites like fancy stuff like sense and coherent reasons. Hmf bluebloods.

Within 24 hours of the 140 character (and some blogging) bon mots bonanza Palin had her lawyer threaten to sue the entire establishment of the Internets for suggesting there could be a rational reason for her actions.

So on the nation’s birthday, Independence Day – Palin did the most American of acts – made her lawyer write an intimidating letter.

Anyway, what’s next for Sarah Palin? Where will she go? Well she has an overinflated sense of herself, likes high-end stores and is writing a self-serving book. She’ll fit in perfect in LA!
