“In resigning from office with 17 months to go in her first term, Sarah Palin has made herself the bull goose loony of the GOP. Her statement was incoherent, bizarre and juvenile. [It] had all the depth and gravitas of a 13-year-old’s review of the Jonas Brothers’ album on Facebook. She even quoted her parents’ refrigerator magnet. She put her son’s name in quotations marks. Why? Who knows. She writes, ‘I promised efficiencies and effectiveness!?’ Was she exclaiming or questioning? I get it: both!” — Paul Begala in a 7.3 HuffPosting called “Sarah Palin Turns Pro.”
