“There Is No ‘I’ in ‘Quit'”

“More opposite characters you could not imagine. [Robert] McNamara, the owlish, frighteningly smart, statistically sophisticated, emotionally fragile executive, was the coldest fish in the exotic aquarium of the New Frontier.  [Sarah] Palin, the most colorful and charismatic figure to pop up in the GOP since Ronald Reagan, has displayed in equally vivid terms her brimming self-confidence and her striking ignorance of public policy.

“One of the traditional values for which conservatives are supposed to stand is: Finish what you started. Meet your responsibilities. This looks like a wholly selfish decision on[Palin’s] part, with no large principles at stake.

“McNamara stayed too long and left too quietly. Palin is bailing out on her people far too soon. Neither can serve as an example for those in government wrestling with the decision of when to quit.”  — David Broder, Washington Post

    Why do you hate America?

  2. Hose B says:

    As a registered Democrat, I sincerely hope this isn’t the last we’ll see of Sara Palin.

  3. Frank of Oregon says:

    Between the Palins and the Jacksons, this country was treated to a whole week of high-profile dysfunctional families.

  4. Ms Calabaza says:

    that’s it … it’s Friday afternoon and I agree with Frank of Oregon … Enough, I QUIT!

  5. Ruh Roh says:

    The bigger shock than Palin stepping down is Sanford of SC staying on. Those Republicans can’t seem to get anything right.
