Quit on a holiday

Sarah Palin book cover contestIf resigning from the governor’s office is a path to the White House, why didn’t George Bush do it?

Popular Alaska blogger FireDogLake says, “What we are seeing here is either a preface to some indictment, or the final chapter in the career of what has been the biggest political joke of the 21st century. She is so obviously a combination of extreme narcissism and even more extremely bad advice by really, really pathetically bad advisors.”

Even more popular Alaska blogger MudFlats says, “It’s become more and more apparent that what she likes is the crowds, the attention, and the advocacy for her beliefs.

“But the day to day running of the state doesn’t seem to have much appeal anymore. Palin has discovered, through her travels, that you don’t have to be a politician to get attention.”

Rumors are rampant.

Law enforcement sources in Alaska say Palin is in trouble: “a criminal indictment is pending authorization”, but the LA Times reported that the FBI had no investigation into Palin. [link]

What Is Sarah Palin Thinking?

Mudflats wraps it up: “Yes, she draws crowds, but so does Brittany Spears, and I sure wouldn’t vote for her to take up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”

Addendum: Joe the Plumber has decided not to run for Congress for now.

“You know, I talked to God about that and he was like, ‘No’.”
