So, this is why Sarah Palin chose to resign as governor of Alaska?

This was her “higher calling?” This was what was so damn important that being the governor of one of the United States of American (only 50 of them jobs around, you know)? So she could put out silly-assed tweets, have her own “reality” show (carefully scripted, of course), and to go into full Whiney Grizzly mode when someone has the audacity to criticize her? THIS is it? Excuse me, but WTF?

I cannot for the life of me understand why Sarah Palin is newsworthy, much less considered to be a possible nominee for a major political party for the President of the United States.

You know who Sarah Palin reminds me of? Chrissy on that 70’s sitcom with John Ritter, “Three’s Company.” Chrissy was there, in my mind, for two main reasons. One, eye candy. Two, to drop in unexpectedly and make really extremely silly non-sequiturs that make everyone shut up for a minute to take in the full throated stupidity of the comment. For example…

Jack Tripper: And speaking of current events, did you read the *big* news in the paper this morning?

Chrissy: The May Company is having a huge sale on pantyhose.

Jack Tripper: Excuse me, Chrissy, that's not exactly a current event.

Chrissy: It is so, it's going on right now.

Doesn’t that sound almost exactly like Ms. ex-Half Term Governor?
