life really is a picnic for Sarah Palin this wknd. shes got 3 in 3 days, all leading up to her resignation sunday...heading to wasilla now.Palin made a stop at a wasilla picnic tonight and ppl couldnt get enough of her. Side note: the mountains there are amazing!

Palin told her hometown she loves them, thanked them. Sort of emotional at times–it was her last public event in Wasilla as governor.

    Sarah, Sarah, please get back on your meds! You're a mess. Surely your kids deserve better than that.

    LET HER LEAVE!!!!!

    The GOP will be better off without the her.

    I'm hoping to see a Powell/Daniels ticket in 2012

    We need a strong GOP in this country!

    This is coming from a Democrat by the way.

    I'm terrified she would win. You betcha.

    Violating ethics laws, no problem for too many. Supporting programs to help the people, socialist and anti American.

    What a country.

    Sarah, we trust you. I am not sure if you are running for 2012 or not, if you run against him, YOU WILL GET MY FAMILLY'S VOTES. But if you run against Hillary, then ... mmm, I am not sure.

    What in the world has she done for Alaska? All show and no go. The sad part is that there are people out there who believe she can make a difference. If she hates the media so much, and the media has been mean to her (poor baby), why does she keep couting the press like a crack addict? Hey, media! If she has such disdain for you, do her (and us) a favor and ignor her!

    palin is despised by most intelligent people in our great state of alaska. she is especially despised in juneau, our capital, which she purposely left out of her "governer's picnic" circuit. she has never lived in juneau...where her job is...and selfishly wanted to move our capital to wasilla/anchorage at the certain economic destruction of all juneau families. she claims to be for protecting children, but her resignation press release of her accomplishments says not one word about protecting children! she is a egomaniacal, hypocritical, vindictive opportunist who uses her family and holy roller religion to futher her purposes. the mere fact that she got her 20 minutes of fame proves that the notion of a "liberal media" is a joke...just like her presidential ambitions. adios sarah!
