ANCHORAGE — Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has announced plans to run for Governor of Alaska in the 2010 election.
Citing her self-abbreviated previous term as Chief Executive of the country’s largest state, the dropout governor asserted that her two-and-a-half-years-in-office gives her “way more experience” than her likely opponent, current Governor Sean Parnell, who has “less-than-one-month of experience.”
Parnell, the former Lt. Governor, succeeded Palin as Governor on July 26, 2009 following her resignation after serving only two-and-a-half years in office.
“If we’re talking experience,” said Palin. “I have two-and-a-half years and he has less-than-one-month. Who would you rather have as your next governor? I don’t know about you, but I would rather have someone like me, who knows the ‘ins’ of the the job — and has a proven track record with the ‘outs.’”
Parnell confirmed his plans to run for re-election in 2010. He said he looks forward to opposing Palin in the Republican primaries and eagerly awaits debating “that crazy fuck.”
Palin told reporters that she is excited about her “second go” at the governor’s office, and has no plans to resign until serving a full two-thirds of her term.
