    Yes, if you have less than 2 years left in your term you might as well go to Argentina or spend your time with hookers, because god knows you aren't going to get anything done.

    Guess Palin won't be showing up in California at the Reagan library next week.
    Will She or Won’t She?

    That was the question about Sarah Palin’s first post-gubernatorial appearance. Now, after plucking the petals off a daisy as we chant ”she will,” “no she won’t,” “she will,”… we have our answer. No, she won’t. Here’s the official announcement from her Facebook page, after weeks of everyone believing she’d be there.
    Release Concerning Simi Valley Republican Women’s EventShare

    As repeatedly stated to several in the media over the last week, former Governor Sarah Palin is not committed to attend the Simi Valley Republican Women’s event at the Reagan Library and in fact is not attending the event. Neither the Governor’s state staff nor SarahPAC has ever committed to attending this event or speaking at this event, and even requested that the Governor’s name be removed from the invitation several weeks ago. The Governor has other work and commitments to take care of at that time. She looks forward to visiting her friends in California soon.

    All event requests must be confirmed with Meghan Stapleton of SarahPAC. Additionally, all invitations bearing the Governor’s name must be approved by her attorney before proceeding.

    Thank you.
    Meghan Stapleton
    I wonder how long it will be before nobody invites her to speak anywhere ever. And what will Meg Stapleton do now that she can’t blame “miscommunication” with the governor’s staff?

    Palin needs her lawyer to approve invitations? WTF? Isn't that what PR people are for?

    Palin Goes "Dark," Leaves Supporters Wondering

    RACHEL D'ORO | 07/31/09 11:49 AM |

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Fans to Sarah Palin: Please, post a tidbit on Facebook. A little chirp on Twitter would be nice.

    It's been five whole days since Palin stepped down as Alaska's governor and her Internet fans are dying to know what's next.

    "Sarah can you give us just a hint!" writes one Facebook follower.

    But the hockey mom-turned politician who promised to launch her change to private life on social networking sites has been quiet so far. In fact, she's gone "dark," leaving supporters to flood the Web with speculation.

    The big question on their minds is the 2012 presidential race. Will she or won't she?

    Her silence is not keeping supporters from discussing the possibility of her chasing the country's top job or taking on another national role.

    Said one Facebook entry: "Drill, Drill, Drill ... all the way to the White House!!!!"

    Said another: "Sarah, our country really NEEDS YOU NOW!!!"

    One person asked Palin if she was keeping tabs on the site.

    "Is there any way you could somehow let us know you're reading this?" the poster asked. "Maybe a little tweet sometime when you get your Twitter up again."

    The clamor comes amid a vacuum of knowledge about what awaits the former GOP vice presidential candidate since she left the state office Sunday with 16 months remaining in her first term. Her departure came with no elaboration of her long-term political plans. Short-term, she was expected to speak Aug. 8 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, but her spokeswoman, Meghan Stapleton, posted a note on Palin's Facebook page Thursday that she is not attending the event. She gave no explanation, and did not respond to requests for comment on the ex-governor's plans.

    Palin has said she could campaign for political candidates across the U.S. Also making the rounds are unconfirmed reports that Palin could be open to being a conservative voice on a radio show.

    Or she could be a homemaker, according to a third of 900 voters responding to a poll by FOX News. Even members of her own party are divided over what Palin should do next. The poll, released this week, showed 27 percent of Republicans believe the vice presidency would best suit Palin, followed by 18 percent who see her as a homemaker, 14 percent who would cast her as a talk show host and 12 percent who favor her as president.

    In her last three months as governor, Palin routinely tweeted about state business and other subjects, including domestic energy development, the death of Alaska-based soldiers and dismissals of ethics complaints against her. Nearing her gubernatorial departure, she indicated she would use a personal account on Twitter to continue to stay in touch and more freely speak her mind.

    "10 dys til less politically correct twitters fly frm my fingertps outside State site," she tweeted July 17.

    Palin's attorney, Thomas Van Flein, said Palin will resume her Twitter feeds in the near future. He said he was not at liberty to discuss any of her post-office activities.

    Where some supporters are concerned, soon is not soon enough to hear from Palin.

    "Anyone find it strange that Sarah has not shown up at all on Twitter by now??? If she waits too long, people will move on," one supporter wrote Thursday on the Web site Conservatives 4 Palin.

    Wrote another: "Sarah can't even go 4 days without tweeting? I think she's smart to go 'dark' for a while."

    That she is laying low came as no surprise to Pam Pryor, a spokeswoman for Palin's political action committee. SarahPAC reportedly has raised more than $1 million.

    "Seeing how she just left office, I would think she's taking a few days off," Pryor said. The time off is a way for the governor to "shut off the lights and close the door and go from one chapter to another."

    I read somewhere that she's holed up with her lawyer drafting libel and slander lawsuits.

    I think her priorities are:

    1. To make lots of money, and to keep it rolling in as long as possible.

    2. To stay in the public eye and be an "influencer".

    To achieve these two goals, she could go on a lecture tour and sock away the money she makes and/or get a Tee-Vee show on Fox. I don't think she wants to be an elected official any more, even the president. I think she's cracking and has realized she doesn't have the balls to run for national office.

    I don't think she has a case for anything like that.

    ^^^You think that would stop her from trying?

    However, based on the recent news, perhaps she's holed up hammering out her separation papers.

    Todd and Sarah Palin to divorce
    Affairs on both sides

    AlaskaReport has learned this morning that Todd Palin and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin are to divorce. Multiple sources in Wasilla and Anchorage have confirmed the news.
    Palin's divorce

    A National Enquirer story exposing previous affairs on both sides led to a deterioration of their marriage and the stress from that led to Palin's resignation as governor of Alaska.

    The Palins were noticeably not speaking to each other at last Sunday's resignation speech in Fairbanks. Sarah ditched Todd (MSNBC) right after the speech and left without him. Sarah removed her wedding ring a couple of weeks ago.

    Sarah has recently purchased land in Montana and is considering moving the family there. Sarah Palin is originally from Idaho.
    Todd Palin

    Todd Palin told Fox News last week that he was heading back to his job in the oil fields of Alaska, yet Sarah recently signed a book deal reportedly worth $11 million.

    Editor's note: AlaskaReport was the first website to report that Sarah Palin was running for governor of Alaska and the first website to report that Sarah was picked as John McCain's VP candidate.
