Sarah Palin announces plans to 'Go Live!'

As Mark Twain said upon reading his own obituary in the morning newspaper, reports of the demise of Sarah Palin are "greatly exaggerated." The liberals' worst nightmare is not only politically alive and well, she's announcing her plans to "Go Live!" as soon as her resignation as governor of Alaska becomes official. In today's Washington Times, sexy soccer mom Sarah says:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska | Brushing aside the criticisms of pundits and politicos, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she plans to jump immediately back into the national political fray — stumping for conservative issues and even Democrats — after she prematurely vacates her elected post at month's end.

The former Republican vice-presidential nominee and heroine to much of the GOP's base said in an interview she views the electorate as embattled and fatigued by nonstop partisanship, and she is eager to campaign for Republicans, independents and even Democrats who share her values on limited government, strong defense and "energy independence."

"I will go around the country on behalf of candidates who believe in the right things, regardless of their party label or affiliation," she said over lunch in her downtown office, 40 miles from her now-famous hometown of Wasilla — population 7,000 — where she began her political career.

"People are so tired of the partisan stuff — even my own son is not a Republican," said Mrs. Palin, who stunned the political world earlier this month with her decision to step down as governor July 26 with 18 months left in her term.

Both her son, Track, 20, an enlisted soldier serving in Iraq, and her husband, Todd, are registered as "nonpartisan" in Alaska.

Mrs. Palin, who vaulted to national prominence when Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, chose her as his running mate last August, left the door open for a future presidential bid...

Even dealing with the political maelstrom she unleashed, Mrs. Palin flashed the down-home, personal touch that even critics say helped her forge an extraordinary bond with supporters on the campaign trail.

When a photographer prepared to take pictures of the interview, Mrs. Palin, wearing open-toed shoes, said laughingly, "Don't get my toes in the picture - they are green on the bottom."

Indeed they were. She said the marks were grass stains from mowing her lawn the previous day.

Green toes indeed. What a touch. Look out for this woman. She'll be our next President.

I would say this announcement makes it perfectly clear (as Nixon would say) that Sarah's supposedly shocking resignation of her governorship early is just what she said it is: a unanimous family decision that the MSM/Leftwingnut Wolfpack's constant sniping at her and her family had made her effectiveness as governor not in the best interests of Alaskans. But she didn't quit just to get away from the snipers, quite the opposite. She quit to clear the decks for the main battle.

Buckle up leftwingnuts! You're in for the butt-whooping of your lives. Sarah's going on the warpath. And the wolfpackers who've been celebrating victory over Sarah are gonna find out they brought a knife to a gun fight. Because Sarah's got a moose gun and she knows how to use it!
