Sarah Palin a Quitter? You Betcha!

7/3/2009 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin sure likes to finish what she starts ... she just announced she's stepping down as Governor of Alaska later this month.

Palin also said she won't seek a second term in 2010 -- Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell is set to take her place.

It's not clear exactly why she's turning her back on the citizens of Alaska, but people suspect she has her sights set on the White House in 2012.

Spandex never looked better    

I am glad to know that's she's resigning. That bitch and her family has had their 15 minutes of fame. What she needs to concentrate on now is her family. She still has young children at home, and one with special needs. It's time for someone new. Good riddance Sarah!!!!

If Palin were to win in 2012, I will need to move to some other place than the U.S.
God help us all.
Sure, we're in a bad place now, but things really could get worse.
Some other "star" will rise in the Grand Old Party....just as one did for the Dems with Obama.

Nice reporting TMZ... You should be proud of your writers... dumbasses. It's not unusual for someone who might run for president to step down before hand. Actually it's a RESPONSIBLE thing to do so she can focus on one thing and not slack in her duties to the Alaskan people. America can only hope she runs and wins. OBamanomics WILL DESTROY this country.

It will be a sad day in this country if this woman is ever elected to be our President...She will never have my vote and I will be very ashamed if she is allowed to run our country. She can't even control her own kids much less control our country.

Sarah Palin is definitely a better person than MJ.

Sarah Palin is not a good choice for President, but anyone's better than secretly radical Obamajama.
