Anchorage, Ak. - With a wink, a smile and a "gotcha" Sarah Palin announced today that she has 'changed her mind' and will remain the Governor of Alaska.
"You people really are gullible if you think I'd give up leather Armani jackets for pleather fishing waders" the Governor said to the hundreds of assembled TV and print reporters. "Hell, even the good people of Alaska were in on the joke" she said. "What with the economy and everything going down the toilet under that Islamic President we have now, I thought what Alaska needed is an good old influx of millions of dollars from the lower forty-eight. And I knew that you press people would spend every last red cent you had chasing me around the backwaters of Alaska."
Now with a huge smile on her face the governor explained, "I even issued a decree in the press last week to all businesses in the state to gouge the hell out of you schmucks when you got here. All you frickin' high class chumps renting fancy hotels and helicopters, eating lobster and salmon. What do you think of me now Andrea Mitchell? You and Chris Matthews still think I'm a stupid bimbo now? Who got the last laugh now? Huh, who?"
With that the Governor ended the press conference by giving the assembled press 'the finger' and said, "See you in 2012"
