An Open Letter to Sarah Palin

Dear Sarah (I know I can still call you “Governor,” but that doesn’t seem like either of us, really):

I hear you’re recently unemployed. Isn’t it kind of liberating to walk out of a job? I actually quit my job recently as well because I’m headed back to school. Are you going to school this fall? It’s good to have a back-up plan, so my father tells me. My “back-up” plan has always been music, so I guess it’s not much of a “plan” at all. We can’t all listen to our parents, as you are no doubt well aware.

I worked at my job for nearly four years, which I heard is the term for the Governor in Alaska. Did your term expire? Oh right, you quit your job too, which is why we have so much in common of late.

Unlike you, I didn’t go in planning to work at my job for four years. Wait...did you? I guess my job never had a set “term,” if you will, and honestly, I never imagined being there more than a year. How long did you think you were going to be in your job when you started?

I have to admit, I really admire your stance on quitting so you wouldn’t waste tax payer money. I did quite the opposite: I quit in the middle of the month so that my health insurance, etc. would continue until the end of the month. I guess that’s probably not something you have to worry about since you’ve apparently got a lot of money, yours or donations.

I hear you don’t really like the “Gotchya” media. Did you have to go through an exit interview? I did and while I understand that they have a right to know certain things, I was a little upset that they asked so many personal questions, like “What did you do on an average day?” There goes that machine again- politics as usual, right? Well, none of that for you and me anymore, right?

Wouldn’t it be strange if you quit your job just to join the media that has had it out for you this whole time? Actually, that’s not a terrible idea. If you could somehow control a small part of the media, maybe they wouldn’t talk about your virgin daughter who had the child or all these made up allegations they have all this evidence lying around for. Maybe YOU could be in charge of finding other people to make stuff up about. That’ll show ‘em, Sarah!

Anyways, best of luck with your future plans. I’m sure you’ll land on your feet. As long as you find something and keep at it, even if you don’t like it, you’re bound to get where you want to go eventually.

Best,
Amish
