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.

What?    

Normally when a politician "Steps Down" is to a scandal cover-up. I bet in the next couple of weeks, tibits of information regarding her stepping down will begin to leak out. No one could seriously consider her for president if she cannot complete her obligations to the state. Will she "step down" in the middle of a presidential term too. No, some smells in Alaska and it's not the road killed moose.

Okay, that's it for me with TMZ! You can't broadcast enough of Michael Jackson...junkie...black man turned white...never adopted "his" children...bizarre relationships with young boys...Sarah Palin is stepping down exactly because of negative media crap...she can do more for her state, her family, and her country without the constant blitz so-called journalists heap upon her. The Lt. Governor is more than ready to step in and do the job. Now...where's Carrie Prejean? Are you skulking in the woods looking for her? And, honestly, I hope Sarah Palin runs for President in 2012...she's for smaller government, capitalism, national security, lower taxes, LIBERTY...exactly what we are losing now.

Ew. the "wink 'n' wiggle' churchlady with a brain like a cat (my apologies to cats). She tried to destroy David Letterman over one joke that went wrong...if she ever became President watching TV or movies in America would be like watching them in Iran.

Palin has clearly shown that her sense of entitlement is stronger than her need to serve the people of Alaska. Are we to think that that her self-serving ways would be any different as president of the USA?

Her political career is over. She's not exactly an intellectual, but she IS smart enough to realize she has a future as a talk show host or conservative "commentator" ( FOX probably already has a line on her ) where she can say and do whatever she wants, reel in the big bucks and not be held up to the level of scrutiny a politician is. She can become a female Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly and pander to the uniformed populace who support her views. It's a very shrewd ( and profitable ) move. It shows her true colors, too. Abandoning her state and responsibilities shows that she was always in it for fame and celebrity.
