12:39 pm - A voice in the wilderness
Sarah Palin is back in the news again.

After Alaska Republican Party Chairman Randy Ruedrich called for Senator Mark Begich to step down and a special election be held for his (rightfully won - ed.) seat, Sarah Palin weighed in:

In an email to POLITICO, Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton confirmed the governor’s position. “She absolutely agrees that there should be a special election,” Stapleton wrote. “Stepping down to hold the special election would be the right thing to do.”

State party chairmen are supposed to be partisan attack dogs so I'd expect Ruedrich to throw bombs like this:

“A special election will allow Alaskans to have a real, non-biased, credible process where the most qualified person could win, without the manipulation of the Department of Justice,” he added.

But why would Governor Palin chime in?

Maybe she figures that getting a shot at clawing back another Senate seat will buy her some political cred with the Republican voters in 2012. Maybe she was upset at the Republican machine taking a hit. Maybe she is just a loony.

She's afraid of letting her 15 minutes of fame fade...
