Got to give Sarah Palin credit for turning the English language upside down.  She is quitting because she isn't a quitter.  Good to know.  But reading a bit more of what she says, she is apparently quitting because she doesn't want to put Alaska through the trauma of a lame duck governor.  See, a lame duck governor is supposed to have a lot of fun going on junkets and traveling.  That wouldn't be good for Alaska.

Doesn't seem to have occurred to her to just stay in Alaska and do her job, does it?  I guess that isn't sufficient fun.

Best explanation I have heard so far - impending FBI investigation.

One of the biggest mistakes McCain's team made was picking this woman for his running mate without first thoroughly vetting her. The woman is a flake and, scarily, one who now thinks she's qualified for higher office. Or, as she calls it, a "higher calling." Yikes. :-/

It also confirmed my belief that McCain acts without thinking things through. What a bullet the country missed.

I read several Alaskan blogs and Palin was unbelievable. She belonged in the NY Senate (another disaster). I still can't figure out how quitting became not quitting in her speech.

Agreed. Is it awful of me to hope your impending federal investigation theory comes true? If so, I'll risk being awful, 'cause seriously, the thought of this woman getting anywhere close to Presidential office is terrifying.

I totally understand that feeling. She is unreal in her ability to be confusing, to instigate hate and particularly to be hypocritical. I wish I thought it was the last we would hear from her but I think she loves the limelight and will look for ways to stay in it.

Yes, she's all the worst things you think a President could be all rolled into one self-deluded mass of flakiness. ::shudder:: She sure isn't giving up the limelight, is she, and, politics aside, hasn't got a clue she's not friggin' qualified to be President. (Reason enough, alone, to not vote for McCain was the fear something would happen to him.) I wish I could say folks are too smart to support her, but... ::double shudder::

I agree with you - one would think that someone who quits in the middle of their first time in a state wide position would not get support for a national office at all, much less the presidency. But she has a hard core set of supporters who think she walks on water. UGH.

I'm hoping hard that it's a small core set of supporters. Otherwise, the Mayan calendar's ending at 2012 has even more doomish portent. :-/
