Video: Todd Palin says Sarah resigned to make money

Sarah Palin announced her resignation as governor of Alaska two years ago with a speech so rambling and disjointed it became immediately iconic. She said she was not "wired for politics as usual," that she wanted to "take a stand" and "not just hit our heads against a wall" and "watch valuable state time and money, millions of your dollars, go down the drain in this new political environment." She said she was giving her reasons for resigning "very candidly and truthfully," but no one knew what she was talking about. Her husband, Todd, confronted by an Alaskan in Iowa this week summed up the reasoning more succinctly and more convincingly: Palin resigned in order to earn money to pay high financial debts and to avoid legal complaints. Of course she did! Videos after the jump.

Palin resignation excites her anti-abortion-movement fans

WASHINGTON — Debbie Joslin wasn’t happy to see Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announce her resignation. “I was disappointed that she wouldn’t be governor anymore,” the president of the Alaska branch of the conservative Eagle Forum and a longtime Republican activist said in an interview. “It’s hard to get things done now because of the 10-10 split between the parties in the State Senate. What she did was out of the box, and anybody else would be politically dead.” As some question Palin's decision, anti-abortion activists, who embraced Palin after the birth of Trig and after the unmarried pregnancy of Palin’s daughter Bristol, are ecstatic about the possibility that Palin, freed from the duties and turmoils of office, could become a historic leader and spokeswoman for their cause.
