Palin Strategy to Upstage Michael Jackson?
Michael Jackson dies and knocks the Iranian "Revolution" off page one and TV lead-ins.
Sarah Palin is trying to upstage Michael Jackson by resigning?
The entire text of her speech of "resignation" maybe found at the site below. For the student of history and personality cults it is well worth a careful read.
In it she says that all four of her children for for her stepping down. I guess that means the baby did too.
She says she is doing it for Alaska, Most Alaskans will probably agree with her though not exactly.
Then there is the weird bit about: "... I think much of it had to do with the kids seeing their baby brother Trig mocked by some pretty mean-spirited adults recently.) Um, by the way, sure wish folks could ever, ever understand that we ALL could learn so much from someone like Trig - I know he needs me, but I need him even more... what a child can offer to set priorities RIGHT - that time is precious... the world needs more "Trigs", not fewer.
I wondered about that and what it ment so I googled Trig-Palin-mocked and got these two photos.
It seems this iconic picture was photo-shopped into the picture below,
It took me some time to find out how this mocked Trig in that clearly someone else's face has been placed over his.
The explanations is found at Huffington Post.
The level of insanity of all of this makes me wonder at the state of our National mind.
But it all came together when I read this part of her speech.
"Let me go back to a comfortable analogy for me - sports... basketball. I use it because you're naïve if you don't see the national full-court press picking away right now: A good point guard drives through a full court press, protecting the ball, keeping her eye on the basket... and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can WIN. And I'm doing that - keeping our eye on the ball that represents sound priorities - smaller government, energy independence, national security, freedom! And I know when it's time to pass the ball - for victory."
It became crystal clear then, she is upstaging
