Woke up to a cryptic e-mail this morning from Gov. Sarah Palin's office. All it says is she "will make an announcement at her Wasilla home this morning" at 11.
On Fourth of July weekend? From her home? Hmm.
My question: why did it have to be so cryptic? She's staying another month on guard -- so just wait until after the holiday, why don'tcha?
Maybe she thought that if she waited to make the announcement, she'd reconsider. Or maybe she wanted her July 4 weekend to relax without having to worry about throwing such a curve ball on Monday morning.
The bottom line is that no one knows why she did it - the timing, the reasoning, nothing.
