Sarah Palin Defends Being a Selfish Quitter

by at . Comments

In her first interview since her announcement Friday that she was resigning as Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin told the Today show that she did the right thing for her state, as she already knew she wasn't going to seek re-election in 2010.

This ignores the fact that she could simply not run again upon completing of the term the people she claims to care about elected her to serve, of course.

Sarah Palin basically blames being chosen as the Republican V.P. candidate last year, saying "everything changed" that day and that "nothing would be the same for our administration." Because she stopped caring about Alaska, that is.

Once she entered the national spotlight, says Palin, "The choice I had to make was, how am I going to react to the circumstances, the changed conditions?"

HALF-BAKED ALASKA: Palin's explanations for quitting just don't cut it.

"Am I just going to keep plugging away, keep my head down and not going to affect any more change, because every time we try to do something we get hit with an ethics-violation charge or a lawsuit, because that's the political game that's being played?"

She raises a valid point. Why keep "plugging away" at a job you were elected to do, when you just don't give a $h!t anymore? And why put up with jerks accusing you of trivial "ethics violations" when you just wanna do whatever you please?

Public service just isn't worth it.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
