Referencing her announcement to step down as governor on July 26, she posted this tweet Friday: "elected is replaceable;Ak WILL progress! + side benefit=10 dys til less politically correct twitters fly frm my fingertps outside State site"
Palin loves Twitter and has used it as a tool to go around the mainstream media and broaden her support among conservatives in the lower 48. To me, today's tweet is more evidence that she plans to run for president in 2012.
She also asked her 99,115 followers to switch to her personal Twitter account once she is out of office: "I'll stay in touch w/whomever wants via personal twtr site;launch July 26;"
Palin's obvious excitement about speaking out on political issues -- unfettered -- as a private citizen and her encouragement of people to follow her after she resigns are part of the groundwork for a future campaign.If the latter is true she is truly delusional, her populace ruse is good to rile up a base. That's it.
Update: Dillingham "I love living in a place where I can be treated as a respectable personage simply by dint of being sober, employed and totally uninterested in having sex with relatives or children," she wrote.
