LOL
If you would have bothered to listen to every thing she said, you would know that she is quitting because she is fiscally responsible to the people of Alaska. She made it very plain that after having to spend 2 million dollars defending herself of false and stupid charges, and by the way, all thrown out, she was becoming too much of a hinderence in getting the job done as too much focus on her. She did this for her state. That's what she said, I believe her, and I think she did the right thing. I admire someone who thinks of their state first. Unlike Mark Sanford, she has a heart, and is a true American. He's a middle-aged , never mind, I just can't stand him and I won't say anymore. Anyway, Just get out of your hate mode and put yourself in her place for one minute.

???? Do you think she's dropping out of politics completely? Now that she's taking her wacko routine on the road you can count on seeing Palin jokes every time she does something bizarre. In other words, at least 3-4 times a month.

Which makes me say WOO HOO! Nobody does wacko like Sarah, I missed her. Sanford's claim that he was "hiking the Appalachian Trail" was close, but just not Palin-y enough. And Michael Jackson was bizarre, but now he's gone. It's great to have her running around again, can't wait to see what's next.

If you'd read the WaPo article, the only thing she's being fiscally responsible for is Sarah Palin.

Well, she put HERSELF in HER place....and couldn't handle it!

Thinking of anyone before Sarah is NOT a Sarah thing.

If she shuts up and quietly slips back to the woods then it will help the Republicans....I'm sure there are many of them who want her out of the news....she doesn't make them look good....and the smarter ones know it.

She's completely irrelevant. A fart in a windstorm.
ITA, she's amusing because she's bizarre. She'll be in the news a lot. But she'll just be one of those political celebrities who get a lot of attention but don't actually have any relevance. She'll get on the news spouting her opinion on everything imaginable--but nobody will care. Another Al Sharpton.

Sounds like a potential republican presidential candidate to me!
Just what one would expect from the state-run media... and from gullible liberals.

Very true, indeed!

But I just can't see her shutting up and quietly slipping back to the woods, no matter how much that might help the GOP. Or even helping her own career. I loved that line about how she doesn't want to be a lame duck... my first thought was "now if only she could stop being a dumb duck."

Then I would suggest she not fly in any light planes.

You sure will if Palin is still hanging around. She's a walking, talking joke.
