You're not listening to me...

... Sarah Palin told Andrea Mitchel today during an NBC Nightly News interview at Bristol Bay. The Palin family was out on the water commercial salmon fishing while the media tried to figure out why Sarah was stepping down as governor of Alaska.

The media just doesn't get it, they can't understand giving up a powerful well paying job in favor of saving the state millions of dollars in legal fees and protecting her family from media and Democrat crude attacks, especially the unconscionable attacks, jabs, and snipes directed at the infant, Trig, born with Down Syndrome.

Leaving office early gives the time, opportunity, and freedom to fight back against her accusers and help other Republican candidates running for the House and Senate in 2010. According to a Pew poll, Palin is leading in approval ratings among her party with 73% Fav/17% Unfav.

Atlas Shrugs has the numbers and writes, "Clear thinking Americans see what is happening... Sarah Palin sees it, too. Smart, sharp, patriotic, she best represents the majority of Americans... We want Palin... We need her. She knows it. She is heeding our call. Is she a hack like Obama and going to campaign on the taxpayers' dime, as he did as a junior senator when he ran for President? No. Extraordinary? Yes. But so is integrity, ethics and decency. The left is calling her a "quitter". Just the opposite, my friends. Just a fighter, a winner. And she is getting into the fight..."

Great clip. No; the MSM just do not get her, do they?

Basically she is telling them all to FO. Can you imagine the money she would command on the rubber chicken circuit? She can draw 20,000 in a town of 30,000. Don

Heck, Don, Palin could draw 30,000 in a town of 5!

As for telling MSM to FO...I've heard her come very close to actually saying so.

I haven't decided yet on what to think of her resignation. But can say it was a calculated decision and not based in fear or simply giving up...She'll be back.

I agree, Kris. With the events and announcements from the Palin office the last couple of days to stump for Republicans AND Democrats who share beliefs of limited government, low taxes, strong defense, I have the feeling Pallin may be headed for a third party formation. Too many Democrats and Republicans are dissatissfied and are philosophically meeting in the middle. Sarah Palin may be able to tap into that feeling and energy to make a successful go at it.
