Default Palin Announces She's Quitting as Governor of Alaska

KTUU-TV in Anchorage reports that Palin not only won't seek re-election, but will resign later this month.

Can't say I blame her with all the bullshit she's STILL putting up with. For example, Letterman makes a completely uncalled-for remark about her 14-year-old daughter, she calls him on it, but according to the media, SHE'S a humorless queen bitch for it?

I wouldn't be surprised to see her start touring the country to attend and put together tea parties, in protest of the legislature that is being proposed in the House and Senate. She would invigorate a lot of pissed off Americans.

Quitting an elected position is too much like 'cut and run'.

Nobody likes a quitter.

Was she hiking the Appalachian trail with Sanford?

Letterman is a douche, but the comments of a late night TV show host shouldn't prompt a Governor to resign.

I think that's just the tip of the iceberg and was the final straw. Not only her life, but her entire family's lives, have literally been turned into tabloid fodder for the last year now. Some people can take that and some people can't. But you're correct, if you want to play ball with the big boys, you gotta have thicker skin than what she's exhibiting with this move.

That's far from the only, or even the worst, example. The hatchet job the left did on her is a disgrace. I didn't think it was possible to see anything more disgusting than the right's treatment of the Clintons, but the left's treatment of Palin takes the cake.

I don't blame her for giving up and going away, but this will still hurt her future prospects. Not because it makes her a quitter, but because if she does try to come back the left will do the same thing again.

Actually, let me shed a little light on this subject via an excerpt from a news paper:

Quote:
“We know we can effect positive change outside of government,” she said in making the announcement.
Known as Sarah Barracuda when she played basketball in high school, Ms. Palin used point guard analogy in explaining her decision, saying she knows “exactly when to pass the ball so the team can win.”
She said that she planned to hand over the reins of the state government to Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell, who would be sworn in at the governor’s picnic in Fairbanks later this month.
“This decision came after much consideration,” Ms. Palin told reporters gathered at her home, and added, “I really don’t want to disappoint anyone with this announcement.”
There had been wide speculation that she would seek to be the Republican Party’s presidential candidate in 2012. Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, who is also considered to be a leading Republican candidate for president in 2012, announced last month that he would not seek re-election.
By leaving office early, Ms. Palin, a 45-year-old mother of five, will be able to travel around the country more freely and not be constrained by the duties and responsibilities of being a governor.
“Some are going to question the timing of this, and let me say this decision has been in the works for quite a while,” she said.
