Post the 2008 election, VP candidate Sarah Palin returned to her day job as Governor of Alaska. But, it wasn’t the same job.

She had electrified the geriatric McCain campaign and threatened Obama’s march to victory. Overnight, Journolist declared war on Palin. Her ill-advised interviews with Couric and Gibson, edited to show her in the worst light, were the opening shots in a campaign to destroy her. The insane left attacked her family with a viciousness beyond belief.

So, she goes back to Alaska and finds that her governing coalition of moderate Democrats and clean Republicans had been broken. For some strange reason, the Democrats decided that Palin was a threat to Obama. Heck, they may even have thought she posed a threat to his 2012 campaign. I have no idea why they thought a failed VP candidate would pose a threat, except, maybe because she out drew the top of the GOP ticket. Or maybe, if the McCain campaign had let her go after Reverend Wright and Bill Ayers as she wanted, the Obama bubble may have been burst. So the Alaskan Democrats now took their marching orders from the Obama White House. Moreover, Democrat operatives discovered that the ethics laws, that Palin had championed in her fight against corrupt Republicans, could be used against her. So they buried her under trivial ethics complaints. None of them panned out, but they cost the Palin administration a lot of time and the Palin’s a lot of their own money. The Democrats had her pinned down in Alaska, unable to govern effectively, and facing personal bankruptcy. Under those conditions, there was no way Alaska Governor Sarah Palin could threaten Obama on the national stage. Mission accomplished.

Unfortunately, Palin understood the Alinsky tactics being used against her, and used them to escape the trap. She did the unexpected, and destroyed her chances of national office by resigning as Governor of Alaska. She faded into obscurity to write an autobiography that nobody would bother reading. Unfortunately, a lot of people liked her book. It became a best seller and made her wealthy. Unfortunately, a lot of people still wanted to pay big bucks to hear her speak. Unfortunately, she started endorsing candidates across the political spectrum, and many of those candidates won their primaries and look like winners in the mid-terms. Unfortunately, the media, even the lame stream media, noticed that she was a force to be reckoned with in GOP circles.

Fortunately, Sarah Palin is much smarter than the lame stream media and Democrat operatives. Unfortunately, they didn’t understand what reload meant, not being familiar with guns and stuff. When she said she wasn’t retreating, just reloading, she meant it. She sure did reload, and now she’s blasting away on all fronts.
