Palin Tweets Allen
Days after surprising just about everyone with her resignation, and just back from a salmon fishing trip with her family, the almost-former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has been tweeting away.
Just this morning, Palin sent this message to her 87,083 followers: "Couple of thoughts for the day on beautiful bright AK morn: You have to sacrifice to win. That's my philosophy in 6 words. - George Allen."
That turned some heads in Virginia, where we all wondered which George Allen she was quoting: The former Republican governor and U.S. senator? Or his legendary Redskins football coach father?
All signs point to the quote belonging to dad -- but figuring it out is more difficult than it appears (though the quote can be found in the book "Knowledge in a Nutshell")
We called the younger Allen, who has a consulting company in Washington and is working on a book. He's out of the country.
But we did a little digging on his father and found out he wrote his own book called "Strategies for Winning" and said things like this: ''To be successful, you must win. To win, you must work hard."
Not quite the same, but sounds familiar.
