This better not be in preparation for 2012. Updated

As any regular reader knows, I like Sarah Palin. I think she was a great choice for VP and I feel she had more tangible accomplishments than McCain, Obama, or Biden.

Nevertheless, her announcement today that she is not running for re-election in 2010 and will actually resign at the end of this month is…bizarre. This is not going to help at all in 2012.


Update: Andrea Mitchell is reporting that Palin is out of politics for good.

Update 2: Charles Krauthammer says this could be about 2016 or 2020.

    It has been a very strange thing for her to do. It all happened so fast. Can’t help but question just as they did if there isn’t something else out there waiting to come out. Some stupid scandal. I sure hope not!

  2. I think it “disqualifies” her from running for major political office ever again, unless she is governor again or a senator. Oh, and there is a legitimate explanation for resigning. (which I doubt)

    Even then…I haven’t been a fan for a while. I agree that there was a substantial amount of unfairness during the campaign, but regardless, even on some fundamental stuff, she was either clueless or simply incapable of communicating well.
