Alaska Governor Sarah Palin shared some thoughts on her resignation with her friends on Facebook. As we've come to expect from her, her comments border on the nonsensical.
"The response in the main stream media has been most predictable, ironic, and as always, detached from the lives of ordinary Americans who are sick of the "politics of personal destruction". How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it's about country. And though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make. But every American understands what it takes to make a decision because it's right for all, including your family."
Let me get this straight; the woman who mocked then-candidate Obama for once having been a community organizer in her Vice Presidential nomination acceptance speech is now decrying the "politics of personal destruction." That's rich. And, no, Sarah, the media isn't singling out your resignation for scrutiny because they have it in for you. You see, Sarah, it is the media's job to report the details of newsworthy events, such as a governor's resignation. As with every other resignation, the pundits will speculate because that's simply what they do.
It is entirley fair for the media to try to figure out whether a person who might well have become the President of the United States (and who conceivably might run again) is bowing out to concentrate on a future presidential run, or whether she is unable to handle political pressures in Alaska, or if she's shedding her responsibilities to the people of Alaska in anticipation of federal indictments relating to malfeasance in the building of her home or the building of the Wasilla Sports Complex.
Is anybody else tired of the Republican victim mentality?
