This one time, I skipped school. When my mom found out (the school actually called...) she slapped me.  I was shocked.  It was the only time she’s ever done that, and the rest of the day was pretty awkward because she was so mad.

Palin Says Goodbye to the Governorship

Monday, July 27, 2009

Sarah Palin stepped down yesterday as Governor of Alaska. What's up next for her? Her reasons for leaving and what she plans to do are still unclear. The Takeaway talks to Dan Bross, news reporter for KUAC in Fairbanks, Alaska, Jackie Siciliano, blogger for the website Team Sarah in Long Beach Island, New Jersey, and Jimmie Bise, blogger and founder of the culture and politics blog, The Sundries Shack in Waldorf, Maryland.

"It's obvious that she's getting out of the way of Alaska, and that, to me, seems to be good for Alaska—that she's just moving out of the way so Alaska can do whatever it needs to do without her fame or her notoriety impeding it one way or the other."
—Jimmie Bise on Palin's resignation from office

Watch the first half of Palin's speech in the video below.

Sarah Palin's Supporters Speak Out

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

For the most of the punditocracy, Sarah Palin’s resignation as Governor of Alaska last Friday remains a mystery. But for those on Team Sarah, her move was the right one.

What's Next for Palin? An Alaskan Reaction

Monday, July 06, 2009

Sarah Palin has been a lot of things: hockey mom, a Miss Alaska pageant winner, a high school point guard, and a Republican Vice Presidential candidate. But in a few weeks, one thing she won't be is Alaska's Governor. On Friday she surprised the nation when she announced her resignation from the post. Joining The Takeaway to discuss Alaska's reaction to the news, and to guess what Ms. Palin will do next, is Larry Persily, former aide to Governor Palin and a long-time Alaska journalist.

"She's like the college star in basketball who, junior year, looks at the pro market and decides, 'I'm out of college. I'm dropping out. I'm going to go at the height of my market. I'm turning pro.'"
—Former Palin aide Larry Persily

What's Wrong With Our Governors?

Monday, July 06, 2009

On Friday afternoon, seemingly out of the blue, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin resigned. Her rambling announcement and strange career choice was only the latest chapter of gubernatorial follies. We discuss the political theatre with Gail Collins, a columnist for The New York Times, who wrote about Sarah Palin and her speech in her Saturday column, Sarah’s Straight Talk. Ms. Collins joins The Takeaway (again!) to review what's wrong with governors these days.

Why Did Palin Quit? The View from Alaska

Monday, July 06, 2009

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin resigned late Friday afternoon with no warning. The reasons for her move remain a mystery. Is she making a play for national politics? Or is she really done with the political scene? Joining The Takeaway are Libby Casey, the Washington correspondent for Alaska Public Radio Network, and Steve Heimel, a reporter for Alaska Public Radio Network, based in Anchorage, Alaska, who are here to discuss how this resignation is resounding in both cities.

"You don't quit your good job if you don't have a game plan. But we do not know, Alaskans do not know yet what is up her sleeve and what she has in store."
— Libby Casey of Alaska Public Radio Network on Sarah Palin's resignation
