I know I'm few days late to this story but it was a great weekend and the only TV I watched was baseball.
Like most people I'm still scratching my head about her decision to just walk away from her responsibilities. Last week's article in Vanity Fair, It Came from Wasilla, started another round of recriminations over the McCain campaign. Palin Story Sparks GOP Family Feud. Then she drops the resignation bombshell in a nonsensical, rambling word salad press conference that will be remembered for her reference to dead fish going with the flow. Most people think that this is the end of her Presidential ambitions although some think the old rules don't apply. My favorite Palinololgists are amateur obstetrician Andrew Sullivan and T,J &P and even they can't figure out what the hell is going on with her. The most plausible reasons for her resignation is that she wants to cash in on her fame or there is some scandal lurking around the corner. I'll bet on the money option as she could easily become even more outrageous than Ann Coulter and rake in the bucks. But the scandals could be out there and her lawyer is threatening to sue anyone that would even suggest such a thing.
Just for fun the speculation is "Then again, tomorrow we may find out that she's been hiking the Appalachian Trail with Vladimir Putin."
But JudiPhilly got to the bottom of it:
She used a bunch of sports metaphors in her press conference. To keep with that all I can say is she is as wierd as a football bat.
