Fighting for Conservative Values unless mean people say icky things about you, that is.
By now you know Sarah Palin is getting all mavericky on us again, this time by quitting the job the people of Alaska elected her to do. Why? Jesus, who really knows? My guess is she's just tired of the whole governor thing and she sees the opportunity to make a lot more money speaking to adoring hordes in the lower 48.
And, really, how you gonna keep 'em down in Wasilla after they've seen Neiman Marcus?
This isn't the first time Sarah's quit. In fact it's more of a pattern in her career, beginning with 5 years and 5 colleges to get her bachelor's. Then, as part of Wasilla's town council, she quit to run for mayor. Then, as mayor, she quit to run for governor. I'm surprised she's still with Todd.
One of the Sunday morning bobblehead shows said that people who follow Governor Palin were moved to look up the clinical definition of a narcissistic personality. According to people who decide these things, the disorder is "...characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, need for admiration, extreme self-involvement, and lack of empathy for others. Individuals with this disorder are usually arrogantly self-assured and confident. They expect to be noticed as superior..."
Now, I know politicians in general are pretty damn self-involved, otherwise they wouldn't be telling you how great they are every few minutes. What's the old joke? The most dangerous place to be is in between a camera and (fill in politico's name). But damn, that definition might as well have a picture of Palin next to it.
What really what tickled me this morning was Failblog.org. This morning, for a brief time, Failblog was surrounded by ads like the one up there for Sarah's PAC. That was beautiful.
SarahPAC. The ultimate Fail.
