The departure of Sarah Palin from the leadership of Alaska is undoubtedly a good thing for people of that state, but it is still unclear how that impacts the remainder of this country. The mouth that never met an idiotic idea she would not embrace is now free to roam the TV and air waves of the United States speaking nonsense in her inimitable style of winks and sighs and incoherence. She leaves Alaska with several ethic issues still to be resolved as well as a mountain of debts, but Ms. Palin wants the world to know she will not cease speaking for good things like ending sex education or denying aid to those seeking abortions. The good news is Palin pledged that she would campaign for those “who believe the right things regardless of their party label or affiliation,” but the bad news is that she will campaign for those “who believe the right things regardless of their party label or affiliation.”
Among the amazing aspects of the American political scene is emergence and disappearance of “shining lights” such as Palin. They appear in a moment, utter words that attract a portion of the population, gain adoring followers, and along comes a failed love affair or incoherent words revealing their intellectual low IQ and then off to the book publisher, the tour, and several stints on FOX News. We cam expect in 2012 Sarah Palin performing on CNN expert panels while the hubby is off moose hunting.
