And it’s not difficult to understand; except, that is, for the media.
All would do well to read it (re: Benito).
An excerpt, but read the whole thing:
This will evidently come as a complete shock to nearly every member of the media elite, but not everyone in public life is a manipulative and cynical liar, and not every person who has a shot at being President must live their lives to pursue that end no matter the costs to the public good, their family and their personal sanity. The Sarah Palin I know is at least one person in that position who is sufficiently well-grounded and secure enough in themselves and their values to not succumb to this illness of hyper-ambition. She is more than capable of putting something else above her own selfish, short-term political self-interest. You would think that a just society might reward that kind of person and not crucify them, but it has been long since clear that we don’t live in that kind of place.
The bottom line is that Sarah Palin resigned simply because she was no longer allowed to do her job in a way that benefited her state and family. She saw that if she stayed on as Governor it would cost the state millions of dollars in wasted time and resources and doom it to gridlock. She knew that it would also continue to cost her family hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend against false and maliciously filed ethics complaints. And she had simply had enough of her children being fodder for inappropriate public attacks.
A note to conservative elites who mindlessly joined in the bogus narrative regarding Palin: Shut your pieholes. You’re part of the problem.
As for all the blathering by the lefties (who hate her guts anyway) about her quitting, I seem to recall another person who did the same exact thing, who actually now sits in the White House. So until you can get your sh*t straight, I’d suggest turning off your mouth and turning on your brain, if you, in fact, possess the grey matter in the first place.
