When the going gets tough, the pretty quit

"I WILL support others who seek to serve, in or out of office, for the RIGHT reasons, and I don't care what party they're in or no party at all. Inside Alaska - or Outside Alaska. But I won't do it from the Governor's desk."

....

My decision was also fortified during this most recent trip to Kosovo and Landstuhl, to visit our wounded soldiers overseas, those who sacrifice themselves in war for OUR freedom and security... we can ALL learn from our selfless Troops... they're bold, they don't give up, they take a stand and know that LIFE is short so they choose to NOT waste time.
- Sarah Palin Resignation Speech, July 3 2009
Isn't it interesting that to support her resignation, she used an example of people doing the exact opposite of what she was doing?

People who support Sarah Palin aren't listening to her words (because they are contradictory and non-sensical). They're feeling her conviction, her passion, her certainty and saying to themselves "if she's so sure about it, and it aligns with my worldview, then she's gotta be right."

Sarah Palin would make a great strategy consultant.

I predict a scandal. She is not very good and hiding how uncomfortable she really is when she speaks to the public.

Dude, I love your blog.

You sound a bit cynical about consulting. (Not that I disagree...)

Maybe it's time for a career change?

Just a suggestion.

You know what? I just don't get Sarah Palin. Maybe its an American thing.

I can definitely think of a few project situations where she would be an asset though
