"I am not a quitter"

... says the moron who just quit her job.

Cutting-and-running like a cheese-eating surrender-monkey is the new patriotism. IYAR.

What can you say about a public official who ridicules those who would take the "quitter's way out" -- as she faces reporters to announce that she's quitting? A governor who claims that "the worthless, easy path" would be to serve out the remaining 18 months of her term? An ambitious politician who says that "life is too short" to worry about, you know, boring things such as responsibility or duty?

-- Eugene Robinson, one of the last remaining free-thinkers at the Wah!Poo.

Palin misread the commitment implied by taking an oath of office, and needed a break after being "on duty now for two and a half years solid." But that's no reason voters shouldn't trust her with the presidency. You betcha.
