“I’m stuck on the runway at JFK waiting for Obama to leave NYC via airforce one. I just want to go to Berlin and party with my bros:(“

Is that she is just so uninformed and has absolutely no desire to be informed. Looking back on the election one thing sticks out in my mind when she was asked what magazines or newspapers she read and she could not name one. There are a plethora of magazines, websites, and news channels to get information from. I myself could name 10 sources, easily, from where I get my news. She can’t name just one?

And Friday she quit. Which is just ridiculous. Nobody likes a quitter. And she quit because she couldn’t handle it anymore. Strip away all the excuses and the basic fact is she couldn’t handle the scrutiny of a political life. And let’s face it, scrutiny is part of American political life and you should be prepared for it going in. I like reporters asking pointed questions to my elected officials both Democrat and Republican. Helps to keep them honest.

I’m curious to see what she is going to do now. I tend to think she will capitalize on herself and her draw, campaigning for gop candidates, or maybe getting a tv or radio show ala’ Huckabee, a presidential run? Maybe she will just return back to a quiet life in Alaska, but I doubt it.
