The current game among political junkies, both conservative and liberal, seems to be guessing why Sarah Palin chose to resign.
I’ve read lots of theories, but I think they all miss the obvious answer. Of the twenty-two republican governors she has, for months, maintained her lead as ther most bat-shit crazy of all of them. She just couldn’t let her crown pass to Sanford of South Carolina without a fight. He called, she raised.
So, we have two of twenty-two vying for the most barking-mad, two fries short of a happy meal, smart as bait, whackjob republican governor. (leaving out Bobby “exorcisms ‘R Us Jindal, Ahnold “I’ve groped every living female AND run the biggest state in the union into the ground” Swarzheneggar as also rans, and Mike “God tells me everything, I don’t need to think” Huckleberry, who is disqualified). Two out of twenty-two is roughly nine percent, a higher percentage than the rate of ANY variety of mental illness in the general population.
