She's imploded; she's committed political suicide.
She is abandoning her post, and gave a ranting, incoherent explanation that mainly consisted of blatant lies ("I'm $500,000 in debt trying to defend myself from frivolous ethics violations that boil down to being photographed holding a fish, and wearing a jacket with a logo on it,") and puerile sniveling ("The depraved Left made fun of Trig in a cartoon on a blog last week; if only people could ever, ever understand that we could all learn so much from someone like Trig,").

The Right, with the exception of the hardcore fundamentalist extremists, have washed their hands of the whining, unstable, attention-mongering Palin.


Oh well; I hear the Wasilla Walmart is hiring.
Maybe they'd even hire her as assistant manager, considering her age and experience.

She's a natural for the stiletto heels department.

If I was Obama I'd be shaking in my boots. It is going to be a landslide
If he shakes in his boots it will be because he's laughing so hard he pees down his leg.

Schwarzenegger brings name recognition. But that's about it.

Does she suffer from split personality syndrome? Or thinks she is the queen?

Maybe she has a tapeworm.

The point of a full court press is to get the offensive player to dribble to one side of the court or another to box them in ... when we practice, if anyone tries to dribble through a press ... major windsprints as a result. Obviously not so much for Sarah Baracuda ... I feel sorry for her basketball coach, he/she is probably shaking their head in embarassment.

Nice try Sarah, I'd have given anything to guard you in high school!
Great point, which makes me wonder just how "good" a b-ball player she actually was. Probably just more sycophants, who couldn't see beyond the physical, telling her what she wanted to hear.

At any rate, her and her team have proven that they can't defend against a "full-court" press. She is bailing out -- taking her toys and leaving.

Sitting here last night listening to her, it couldn't have been more clear to me that what I have always suspected about her is true -- she is bull****ting her way through politics (and life in general), and grabbing all the phat loot she can get, in the process. She is a disgrace to Alaska and the US.

Default Palin quote from Fox News

"Larry Sabato, the director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, said Palin is political toast.


"She has just confirmed that criticism," Sabato said. "Politically speaking, if your goal is to run for president, this is a very stupid move. The correct move was to finish the one gubernatorial term."

Sabato said he doesn't believe Republicans will nominate Palin in 2012 if she were to run.

"If they do nominate her, I think they're inviting not just defeat, but landslide defeat in 2012," he said."


I think Mr. Sabato said it well.

Learned English?

Developed integrity?

Quit saying "there" every other word?

Stopped calling some Americans "not real Americans"?

Stopped embarrassing the Republicans?


What WILL drastically change????
