I wasn’t going to write about Sarah Palin again today. Really, I wasn’t. I was all set to slog into something informative and useful about health care.
Well, maybe later. This is too juicy. ABC News has an absolutely hysterical interview with Palin the Petulant. For example,
Palin conceded many people are still confused about why she made the decision to leave office.
“You know why they’re confused? I guess they cannot take something nowadays at face value,” Palin said.
If we take her at face value, she’s a quitter and a ditz. As I’ve said elsewhere, the speculations on the reasons she left office assume she has a reason, which gives her some credit.
Or maybe the reason is this:
But she said a major factor in the decision was the mounting legal bills she and the state have had to incur to fight ethics charges from her political adversaries. None of the accusations has been proven but, she said, the costs of fighting them have been enormous.
I’m sure Bill Clinton commiserates. But this is the best part:
But as for whether another pursuit of national office, as she did less than a year ago when she joined Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in the race for the White House, would result in the same political blood sport, Palin said there is a difference between the White House and what she has experienced in Alaska. If she were in the White House, she said, the “department of law” would protect her from baseless ethical allegations.
“I think on a national level, your department of law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we’ve been charged with and automatically throw them out,” she said.
There is no “Department of Law” at the White House.
Priceless. Of course, the only reason we don’t recognize Gov. Palin’s sparkling intellect and critical thinking skills is that we’re against feminism.
Update: Jonathan Turley is amused.
