Did Palin Call Cheney, Other GOP Leaders for Advice Before Quitting?

July 7, 2009

ChattahBox)—Sarah Palin’s official schedule for May 2009 reveals several phone calls to Republican leaders that have fed increasing speculation that she may have phoned prominent Republicans to seek advice about her upcoming plans to quit as Governor of Alaska in the middle of her first term.

If she did in fact seek out advice, many political observers are anxious to discover the particulars.

For example, who suggested to Palin that she call a last minute press conference on a Friday of a holiday weekend and incoherently ramble for nearly 20 minutes mixing up sports metaphors and inexplicably claiming she was quitting her office, because she didn’t want to be a quitter?

Despite the hastily called press conference, Palin claims she has been considering resigning from her office for months. So, naturally newly obtained records of Palin’s obtained from a state open-records request, showing calls to Dick Cheney, Rudy Giuliani and Florida Governor Charlie Crist have raised questions.

Did Palin phone former Vice President Dick Cheney from an airport in Fairbanks, saying something like, “Hey Dick, I’m thinking of quitting this third-rate governor’s gig in Alaska, so I can use my star power on the national stage, What do you think?” Did she phone former NY Mayor Giuliani, no stranger to controversy himself, as well as Governor Christ and ask the same question?

Well, spokespersons from all three leaders say no. Christ and Giuliani spokespersons say she never connected with the two men by phone. She did speak to Cheney, regarding the Cheneys’ upcoming vacation plans to Alaska, according to a Cheney spokesperson.

Giuliani apparently reached out to Palin regarding an upcoming paid speech he was due to deliver in Anchorage, Alaska on June 10. The Palins were guests of the Giulianis for a Yankees game, while they were in New York in June.

Still, speculation abounds.
