“Debunk the quitting meme”? So now Palin fans have constructed an alternate universe in which she did not quit her job, a job she was solemnly sworn to fulfill?

This is pathetic. There was a time when conservatives could be counted upon to think clearly and critically on matters of moral obligation, and when they were the first to denounce anything that smelled of “the ends justifies the means” sophistry. But here we have a politician, Sarah Palin, who apparently satisfies certain long-for “ends” for some nominal conservatives. And so they’re quite willing to allow her to use any “means” necessary to get where she wants to go, even if it requires a silly, weak, dishonest and disjointed resignation speech that basically sold out the conservative principles of perseverance, courage, honesty and fortitude.

She’s a pitbull with lipstick. Uh-huh. Right. Keep on telling yourself that.

I see a train wreck approaching for Palin, not a triumphant march to the White House. She is not presidential caliber, and the classless manner in which she walked out on a governorship is just one more in a mounting number of indicators that her time as someone to take seriously is coming to an end.

Far be it from us to wish you a long walk off a short pier.

They thought they had knocked her down. Then she gave her bear speech and came roaring after them.

But she resigned though, where in that oath did it say she has to serve out the entire term? As opposed to having her criss-cross the country while collecting a check as Governor? Which option do you think is more honorable?

In her case, which she did. She put the people of her state ahead of whatever future ambitions she may have had and gracefully stepped down. Again, as opposed to just "milking it" and gaming the system. A politician who steps down to fight for what's right. When was the last time you heard of that?

even if it requires a silly, weak, dishonest and disjointed resignation speech that basically sold out the conservative principles of perseverance, courage, honesty and fortitude.

She served with honor and integrity, she stepped down for the good of the state. You conveniently forget that she resigned from the state energy commission when she saw corruption. She could have easily stayed and looked the other way but she took on the corruption.

She’s a pitbull with lipstick. Uh-huh. Right. Keep on telling yourself that.

Yes, she is. For a private citizen, she continues to get massive media coverage and has a huge grassroots following. Name another Republican that has what she has.

That's just your opinion. Remember, that she's not a declared candidate of any sorts, so speculation about her chances in 2012 are moot at this point. I'll say this: I support her goals of bringing back government to the people and whatever else she does.

Enjoy your BO CARE! That's the train wreck you see. Sarah's one smart woman and you obviously can't handle it! LOL! Did you pee in your pants when you saw a Sarah thread and just had to stop by?

Bravo to Sarah!

LOL. Palin has more of these qualities in her little finger than all the toady politicians combined. She has just taken ownership of the Health Reform issue while many of the "leaders" were quibbling or hiding.
