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.

You liberal pussies hate Sarah because she's everything you are not; Smart, beautiful, self-reliant, tough, honest, humble and brave. Go smoke your pot and collect your unemployment checks and leave the rest of us alone to go to work to pay for you weaking commie pukes.

It's unfortunate that party lines have been drawn as battle lines. What's more unfortunate are those that fight for the right to murder unborn human beings and promote immorality and find any little flaw in wording to bash a person who is more then they will ever be. Sarah Palin does not owe any of you a thing. Perhaps you should start looking out for your selves.

"liberals don't understand and therefore are scared of Sarah Palin." Damn right. We are terrified that this incompetent moron could actually hold higher office in this country because she is supported by the majortity of uneducated idiots that are too stupid to understand that nothing intelligent ever comes out of her mouth.

Sarah Palin should never have been chosen to run for VP, but she did. Once she did, her life changed forever. She can't, and neither could anyone else, go back and be what she was. That's like saying Michael Jackson could have returned to obscurity after the thriller video. It just isn't possible. In the same way, Palin could never return to Alaska and go back to what she was before. Before, she was a virtual unknown. Now, her ever move is watched and scrutinized. Sometimes giving someone else the chance to accomplish what you, because of political adversaries cannot, is the brave and honest thing to do.

Yeah. Sarah Palin is a real selfish quitter. She carries to term a downs syndrome baby with 4 kids at home already and she's govenor of a big state. What a quitter.

People lash out at things that they don't understand and at things that scare them. It's rather clear that liberals don't understand and therefore are scared of Sarah Palin. http://richardtgarner.blogspot...

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.

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.
