Sarah Palin

Well, Sarah Palin managed to surprise even mastermind Karl Rove when she resigned from her Governor poisition on Friday.  I guess Palin was packing up for the 4th of July weekend and probably just said, ‘you know what?  f**k it, we are going to spend an extra weekend at the summer house…peace out, Alaska.’…Palin’s resignation comes admist accusations against her ethics, lawsuits, and her preliminary plans to seek the presidency in 2012.  Palin served just over two years of her first four year term before giving Alaska, via Facebook (yes…via Facebook), the old it’s not you, it’s me routine. She wrote,

“I’ve never thought I needed a title before one’s name to forge progress in America.” That’s equivalent to, ‘I just don’t want a relationship right now…”

Palin also said in her resignation speech that’s she’s quitting for the greater good.  Rather than go through the motions as Governor, she’s just gonna pack it in.  She said, “As I thought about this announcement that I would not seek re-election, I thought about how much fun other governors have as lame ducks: They maybe travel around their state, travel to other states, maybe take their overseas international trade missions. I’m not going to put Alaskans through that. I promised efficiencies and effectiveness. That’s not how I’m wired. I’m not wired to operate under the same old politics as usual.” 

See ya…wouldn’t want to be ya…
