Congresswoman and Nobel prize winning particle physicist and quantum mechanic Sarah Palin was today given her warmest endorsement by the Republican party in the run-up to the 2012 election campaign.
Republican senator George S.Cross of Texas said of Ms Palin today: "She is exactly what the country needs. Last year I heard she asked one of my colleagues 'why there were no pit-bulls in the cattle show this year'. That's the kind of direct and incisive questioning that made America what it is today."
Ms Palin is believed to have withdrawn from the campaign election because of the physical demands she felt it would place on her and her family. "I knew had to withdraw when they said my chances in the election would depend on having a good running mate. I came into politics to make America a better place, not to get fitter," she told reporters from inside the elevator she had mistaken for the hotel's economy suite.
The Democrats have also expressed their sadness that Ms Palin will not be standing, saying she was going to be their brightest hope in the forthcoming elections. They have now decided to withdraw the horse in a suit they were going to nominate to stand against her.
"That was only to be expected," said a Republican party spokesperson on hearing the news. "The Democrats are just going to have to do their own campaigning in future."
