Is Palin’s national political career over?

posted at 5:45 pm on July 3, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

The news of Sarah Palin’s resignation as governor came during my show this afternoon, where we spent most of an hour discussing it with the chatizens and my co-host Duane Patterson.  I’ve had a chance to watch the video of her announcement and read through dozens of Twitter messages back and forth attempting to rationalize this, and still, it simply can’t be rationalized on the basis of what Palin said today.  It’s easily the most bizarre resignation I’ve seen, and just about senseless.

The lame-duck explanation was the most incoherent part of the entire statement:

“Once I decided not to run for re-election, I also felt that to embrace the conventional ‘Lame Duck’ status in this particular climate would just be another dose of ‘politics as usual,’ something I campaigned against and will always oppose. It is my duty to always protect our great state. With that in mind, my family and I determined that it is best to make a difference this summer, and I am willing to change things, so that this administration, with its positive agenda, its accomplishments and its successful road to an incredible future, can continue without interruption and with great administrative and legislative success.”

Bear in mind that the election isn’t next month but about 16 months from now, in November 2010.  Using this logic, Palin should never have run for the first term unless she was willing to run for the second, and not run for either if she wasn’t willing (or legally able) to run for a third.  Politicians don’t enter lame-duck status until their successor has already been elected and they’re running out the rest of the term. And all politicians become lame ducks at some point — and none of them quit just to avoid it.

Also, how can Palin quit because she didn’t want to deal with being a lame duck and claim in the same breath that her administration would “continue without interruption”?  She just interrupted it!  If she thinks that being a “lame duck” would hamper her ability to push her agenda in the state’s capital, how does she think that an unelected Sean Parnell is going to get it done?

If it’s her duty to always “protect” Alaska, then that strongly implies not walking away from the responsibility of governing it — a responsibility she sought, and with which her constituents trusted her to execute.  No one leads by quitting.  No one leads by quitting.  Palin’s abandoning  her post, and at least from her own description, doing it because she doesn’t want to deal with the issues of being a “lame duck,” a status all politicians have to handle at some point.

I’ve seen a myriad of excuses on Twitter and e-mail for this bizarre resignation: her legal bills are too high, she’s putting her family first, she doesn’t want to distract Alaskans because of cheap-shot ethics complaints that are distracting everyone.  None of those make any sense.  If the spotlight was too much, then she shouldn’t have run for office in the first place.  If she’s quitting because people are taking potshots at her, then she’s not the kind of political fighter we thought she was.  The legal bills might be a rational reason, but thoroughly insufficient for betraying the people who put her in charge of Alaska — and her memoirs would have paid for her legal bills many times over, had she completed her term.

There’s really no excuse, and what Rich Lowry also calls her “terrible,” “rambling,” and “not at all persuasive” statement showed that.  Unless there was a serious illness or a serious scandal, the resignation on the grounds Palin gave is simply incomprehensible.  She has destroyed her own credibiity in a single day.

I liked Sarah Palin and supported her inclusion on the GOP ticket last fall.  I thought she had more toughness than this.  It’s a big disappointment, and it’s the end of any hope of Palin getting taken seriously as a politician on the national level in the future.

Update (AP): I was going to tuck this into one of my own posts but it fits better here. Quin Hillyer, senior editor at the Spectator, calls the resignation an “appalling dereliction of duty.”

What Sarah Palin did today was get out before the real challenges of the job (whatever challenges there are for such an easy job) really rear their heads. The going got tough in terms of spurious ethics charges against her, and she took off. That’s cowardly. That’s not sign of staying power. It’s a sign of wanting to get out while the getting is good, in order to become a full-time candidate for a presidential race that won’t culminate for 3 1/2 more years. It’s a little too calculating, by half — or more.

I just listened to her speech announcing her decision, and found it singularly unimpressive. “This was a rambling, bombastic, self-centered, ‘poor me’ kind of speech.” That’s how Mike Carey of the Anchorage Daily News just described her speech on Fox News. I agree. He then said it was, darn, I already can’t remember if he said it was “pitiful” or “pathetic,” but it was some word like that. Again, I agree. It was a speech in which she clearly made a bit for a national audience — not a very effective bid, but a transparent one — but didn’t adequately explain to the people of Alaska why she was relinquishing her duty…

Statesmen hang tough. Sarah Palin is cutting and running. ‘Nuff said.

JohnGalt23 on July 4, 2009 at 10:03 PM

Who is more liable for slippage amongst moderates by 11 points, the man actually running for president, or the woman running for vice president, who would probably never be president without running for it?

I think my question gets more to the heart of the issue. It’s extremely rare for people to vote for a president based on who the VP candidate is.

Sure, the press claimed to love McCain, and told us the moderates loved him. But that changed the moment they saw their true love across a crowded room.

Maybe. I won’t judge you if you engage her (I have in the past). Just watch for her inconsistencies. They emerge as the night goes on…

I posed the question earlier.
Does anyone know Allahpundit’s real name?
Please please please tell me it’s not that sweet Michelle Malkin.
I mean that thing at the bottom of my screen does say michellemalkin catchfly whenever this thing’s movin’.

She told me she was raised in a liberal home in the old south.

Not to my knowledge. I think only a handful of people have even met him. Does anyone know if Michelle has? Some of it might have to do with his safety… ya know, Allah pundit.

Finally, I am 99.99999% sure it’s not Michelle.

Off topic ——– anybody heard about Noth Korea lately?

Americannodash on July 4, 2009 at 10:27 PM

Nope! This DISASTEROUS move by the Lovely and Gracious Sarah has sucked all the oxygen out of the room/planet. She’s so disasterous that she has dominated the 4th of July news. Dumb women! I suppose the lefties preferr she stay quiet and in the kitchen or at least shut up and get an abortion or two!

Go Sarah Go!

dhunter on July 4, 2009 at 10:32 PM

Yeah. It was so stupid of her to make an announcement like this right before a weekend when absolutely no one would pay any attention.

I know it was stupid because a lot of political pundits said so.

She is extremely smart, devious and highly manipulative. She seeks men, so men need to use great caution. Women would be most effective in responding, but have not seen it happen yet. Where is Hornetsting?

WTF? She is not “Old South”…

ladyingray on July 5, 2009 at 3:16 AM

We just happened to be around when she first came on the scene.

Perhaps she tripped up early in her little game….

….what did she tell you?

That’s why I suggested jenfidel get together with her.
Can you imagine the fur flying?
Jenfidel gets a little too emotional.

Loxodonta on July 5, 2009 at 3:23 AM

You are right, she does seek men…that is when she throws our her LOL* and stuff…

I don’t know where HornetSting is…I talked with her earlier on FB but she was going to watch fireworks…I guess other ppl have lives…LOL

She brought her truck… Ya know, all good republicans own a truck, so she had to get one (one that has a “Drive a Prius” bumper sticker on it).

No, she really is. Arkansas. Just like me. She told me yesterday. I tested her on it. she was pretty fast with an obscure answer.

A shape shifter. This is the danger unless well studied and prepared.

We are ready to see some serious pundit backpedaling in the up and coming days & weeks about Palin’s move Aren’t we?

Wait, how come HS is your friend on FB, but she won’t even tell BB (and uhhmm others) where she lives?

No compliments. It knows how to search and do research. It tracks and psychoanalyzes people. It is very dangerous.

Saltysam on July 5, 2009 at 3:24 AM

She’s never told me anything…she’s just too liberal to be “southern”…she’s a liar…a flake…a phony…a troll…

I have true Southern liberal friends…she is not…

ladyingray on July 5, 2009 at 3:29 AM

Treacherous Woman, that sting ;)

Careful Lady, you’re getting close…
