And to boot “the quitter Sarah Palin” endorsed Rick Perry and helped to propel him over the goal line in the GOP gubernatorial primary vote by helping Perry get 51% of the vote and avoid a run-off.

If Sarah hadn’t “quit” she may not have had as much impact on the Perry race and I think an argument could be made Perry might not have reached the magic 50% mark in the race and therefore may have faced the general election against White in a weakened condition.

Well, Perry would have probably gotten that anyway, but it was good that Palin endorsed him. Debra Medina and Kay Bailey Hutchison were both pretty unpopular by the time the primary rolled around.

And since neither Governor Perry nor any of his campaign staff has accused Governor Palin of being a "quitter," then why all of the unnecessary angst?

Chill out.

Open a beer.

Maybe put on one of the pre-season football games.

Enjoy life a little.
