Sarah Palin Abdicates, Hands Over Regalia

Sarah Palin Abdicates, Hands Over Regalia

In a moving ceremony in St. Paul’s Cathedral Atlantic City Fairbanks, Sarah Heath Palin surrendered her title as Governor of Alaska. Tears and smudged mascara marked the occasion as Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell was sworn in as governor by Alaska Supreme Court Justice Daniel E. Winfree and donned the ceremonial sash and tiara.

Alaska Lieutenant General Craig Campbell was named Mr. Congeniality. Mr. Campbell will take over the governorship should the new governor follow Mrs. Palin into show business.

The crowd reached well into four figures, unusually large for Alaska. Everyone agreed the Palin resignation was the highlight of the Fairbanks Golden Days Celebration, even bigger than the parade or rubber duckie race.

Governor Sarah Palin’s lengthy reign of two years and seven months was marked by prosperity tranquility high drama. We eargerly await her book, personal appearance tour, Twitter feed, and ethics cases.

    Where is the orb? Did she keep it for posterity? The royal hand grenade? Question from the peanut gallery is: will this book be ghost-written? And when has a viable candidate taken his/her first ever oath of office and disregarded it halfway through because they didn’t want to be a “lame duck.” The first term proves oneself and only if there are term limits or no available “upgrades” does one throw in the towel. If she was wearing waders, there’s something fishy in Alaska.

    No orb or ordnance, just a sceptre. In a pinch you can lash on some monofilament and a fish hook when the big ones are running.

    will this book be ghost-written?

    Ms. Palin has selected a collaborator for her memoirs: Lynn Vincent, an author and features editor for World, a conservative Christian magazine.

    Ms. Palin never referred to her “office,” just her “title” — you know, like “Miss Wasilla.”
