Sanford down. Huckabee down. Who’s next?

In one of my earlier posts, I talked about how destiny seems to be clearing a path for a more possible Palin presidential run.  As strange as it was hearing the South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitting to sneaking off to Argentina to cheat on his wife, it was even stranger that former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, also a presidential hopeful for 2012, is somehow tied to the death of 4 police officers in Lakewood, Washington.

You see, many years ago when Huckabee was governor, with advice from the judge, he reduced the sentence of Maurice Clemmons, the man who recently gunned down the police officers.  Huckabee said he granted clemency at the time because Clemmons was a minor then and he was sentence to 108 years in prison for multiple charges of theft.  The amount seemed excessive at the time and his sentence was reduced to 47 years which allowed him a chance for parole.  His sentence was also commuted to the state of Washington and little did Huckabee know that the man he gave mercy to went on to gun down 4 innocent police officers who were practically founders of the newly created police force for the city.

What’s even stranger is that Sarah Palin was in town that day in the state of Washington for her book signing.  She had mentioned the tragic death on her Twitter.  It was just strange that the story became national news because in California, we’ve heard of many police officer deaths, but it is never national news.  Then later on it was connected to Huckabee. It was like watching Gov. Sanford and Gov. Palin playfully betting on the hockey game (SC vs. AK), and then weeks later, the revelation of his affair to a mysterious woman in Argentina comes to shock the political world.

Who’s next to fall from grace, so that fate would have it for Sarah Palin to one day run this country?

Tim Pawlenty and Mitt Romney better watch their backs because something may be lurking in the shadows.

    Maybe it is God’s plan that Sarah Palin will become the next president of the United States and the first woman to become. Well, if it is really God’s plan and Upon His will, no matter how the ultra left and right tried to smear down Palin, she will become president. Nobody in this world can contradict to God’s will, not even the intellectual atheists.

    Huck better keep his day job. Any dreams of running again, went out the window with the disclosure of the Clemency and commutation of a violent murderer doing time on a 108 year sentence. Then he’s released and shoots and kills 4 respected Police Officers. Do you think the MSM and the Dems would not bring up Willie Horton?
