Sarah Palin

By now you know she is resigning as Governor of Alaska on July 26. The speculation I've read all over the place is bizarre and much of the commentary from her detractors has been truly despicable. I don't know what she is planning to do but I will note that she is less of a longshot for the presidency in 2012 that Barack Obama was four years ago today for 2008.

"The speculation I've read all over the place is bizarre"

Any more bizarre, Charles, than her resignation speech?

sam, what's your point? I can concede her resignation speech was bizarre and it doesn't change anything I wrote. Your apparent need to belittle anything, and I do mean anything, Sarah Palin might do is exactly the type of bizarre behavior that I'm finding harder and harder to reconcile with civility.

Charles, why am I tarred with the belittling brush when you yourself characterize the speech as bizarre? And btw, you don't really know that I'm prepared to denigrate everything she does. You're just consulting a prejudice when you write that.

sam, perhaps it is unfair for me to generalize and draw upon my prejudices to lump you in with all the other people spouting nonsense. You must feel like Sarah Palin. :)
