Great Commentary Found on the Web
About Sarah Palin's Resignation
This is dead-on (quite funny also), because clearly Sarah rushed into
this decision, getting NO good advice from anyone. George Bush (both of them) would have NEVER quit.
Read on - and read the comments, which in some cases are as good as or better
than the articles:
Apparently, Sarah Palin has been a no-show many other times
in recent weeks, at places where she was expected to appear or speak.
She will never be able to get out from under this "quitter"
decision. She truly does not seem up to the task of a high-pressure job.
We're convinced now that Sarah Palin - who once had the potential
to be remembered as a good governor - does not have the judgment to be in public office. She has lost our
faith for good as a public official.
Until now, we've been admirers and ardent supporters of Sarah
Palin. If she'd cited emotional stress, family concerns, or
illness, then it would be much more understandable. But not this endless verbiage about how this will help Alaska and
that since she's not running for re-election then she might as well stop now... PLEASE.
We've been supporters of Sarah Palin in the face of all the ridicule...
and now she does THIS. She's lost our confidence and trust now. It's all over.
We personally think that her husband contributed to her
decision, but if so, then this is yet another reason for her NOT to be in public office. Her husband truly should have urged
her to see that she this decision is indeed political suicide. If he could not see that clearly, then he was a detriment
to her political career when she desperately needed someone to give her a major wake-up call. She needed someone to tell
her to take a week away from it all, instead of messing up her future on what seems like a whim.
Not only that - it's the lame way that she said it all.
She couldn't just come right out and say it. She barely implied that she was actually leaving NOW. She kept people
who deserved to know in the dark until the very last moment; they all thought that the press conference was about "not
seeking re-election" (who gives a shit - make that a press release).
For crying out loud - she only had to go another 17 months!!
If Sarah Palin couldn't stick it out for 17 more
months; and if Sarah Palin could not see that this is the absolute minimum requirement of her job - then she has no
business talking about how much she loves Alaska. She has shamed Alaska with this ridiculous move.
If ONLY she could take back this terrible idea.
Sarah Palin is not well, if you ask us. She needs to have someone
keeping a close eye on her for serious signs of stress overload. We wish Sarah well, but to say that we're disappointed
is an understatement. Under no circumstances will we EVER vote for her. Let's hope she plans to leave politics
now. She's much better suited now for being a speaker for parenting issues
and Christian women's issues.
