I'm sure there's a story behind the scenes waiting to come out
Sarah Palin has announced that she will step down as of July 26. I have to admit that the salacious part of my mind wants to know who she's been having an affair with. (These governors seem to be a swinging lot: McGreevey, Spitzer, Sanford...) Another part of my mind is happy because she really just seems so moronic. The last part of my mind hopes that she's not doing this to set herself up for a run for the presidency in 2012. I am not a Sarah Palin fan by any stretch of the imagination. But I am even less impressed by someone who would leave such an important job in the lurch, so to speak. It doesn't speak well for her character, tenacity, loyalty, or integrity. Why would I want to someone to be President who walks away, midway through a single term as governor, without having really done anything, perhaps in order to set up a national political team?
