Abrupt end


News reports say Sarah Palin quit her bus tour of America less than halfway through.

Sarah Palin's custom-painted bus, parked -- is this abandoned parking lot the last stop?

That’s rather unusual, don’t you think?  Our Band of Merry History Teachers stuck to our bus tour last week until the bus wore out.  I’d expect Palin to keep it up so long as the air conditioning held out.

No, I’m not running.  I may be better prepared than some of the candidates, but I have a job to do, and I can’t speak Mandarin.

    Ed, imagine her as jury forewoman and try not to shudder at the thought.

    Sistah Sarah is a particularly good example of what conservative Fareed Zakaria meant when he wrote this:

    If Palin gets picked to serve on a jury, I hope they pick alternates, too — odds of Palin’s sticking out the trial are slim.

  4. Oh, but wait, Ed, she says she was called for jury duty!

    Just ignore her, she will go way. I have to smirk when I hear that she said she has the “Fire in the Belly.”

    Isn’t that pretty standard for Palin? Nice pic with the Presidential Seal, BTW.

    You are surprised Ms Quittypants didn’t follow through? Alaskans learned the hard way, shortly after her election, not to count on follow through.
