Parting words from Palin

July 26, 2009 

“Some straight talk for some — just some — in the media. … You represent what could and should be a respected, honest profession that could and should be a cornerstone of our democracy. Democracy depends on you. That is why our troops are willing to die for you. So how about in honor of the American soldier, ya’ quit makin’ things up?”

“Alaskans need to really stick together…Stiffen your spine to do what’s right for Alaska when the pressure mounts because you’re going to see anti-hunting, anti-second amendment circuses from Hollywood… They use these delicate, tiny, very talented celebrity starlets, they use Alaska as a fundraising tool for their anti-second amendment causes. Stand strong and remind them (that) patriots will protect our individual guaranteed right to bear arms. And by the way, Hollywood needs to know: We eat, therefore we hunt.”

“Our gasline inducement act, AGIA, that was the game-changer…This is thanks to our outstanding gasline team and the legislature….They knew, they know, AGIA is the vehicle to drive this monumental energy project and bring everyone to the table…Now we are on the road to the largest private-sector energy project in the history of America.”

“Some still are choosing not to hear why I made the decision to chart a new course to advance the state. And it should be so obvious to you. It is because I love Alaska this much…that I feel that it is my duty to avoid the unproductive, typical, politics as usual, lame duck session in one’s last year in office….With this decision now, I will be able to fight even harder for you for what is right and for truth, and I have never felt you need a title to do that.”
