Palin Resigned

Sarah Palin resigned. No one knows why. It surprised everyone in the local Republican party, her spokesperson, her Lieutenant Governor (soon to be Governor), and pretty much the nation. She wasn't under investigation, so this wasn't damage control.

It seems to me that this is pretty obviously her crazy impulsiveness. She quit her job as mayor of Wasilla before she finished, and she quit from the state petroleum board - it's pretty clear that when she sees a bigger goal possible, she is inclined to drop her responsibilities and go for it. She'll certainly make a lot of money and she can spin it enough with her fanatical base so that she'll be okay politically. But I think she has again miscalculated badly: this ends her 2012 hopes, if she still harbors them.
