I'm a celebrity, get me out of here

Oh, poor Sarah Palin. Since Friday of last week, in what was a nearly confusing, grammatically challenged speech, the Alaskan governor said she was not only not seeking re-election in 2010, she was also resigning at the end of the month.


None that was given, except that once she decided not to try again for the governor's mansion, she also thought she would want to avoid being a "lame duck," in 2010, she said. Apparently, she's not that kind of person, one who's not a quitter. So, she said, she had decided to ... quit.

"How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it’s about country," she said in a message posted on her Facebook page. "And though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make. But every American understands what it takes to make a decision because it’s right for all, including your family."

So, Sarah Plain and Tall, what is this higher calling you spoke about? Just what qualifies as a higher calling to you? Does that mean being a good housewife and staying home to take care of your kids? Does that mean working with your Church 24/7 to make sure the homeless have a place to stay and food in their stomachs? Does that mean becoming sort of Good Will Ambassador to the world?

Or does it mean making more money than what Alaska is paying you by joining FOX News, where you become one more political pundit spouting on and on about the Obama administrations attempts to turn the US in a Socialistic country - and by the way, do you even know what means without being told by some paid sycophant?

Or does it mean running for Senator, in either your home state, or moving like Hillary Clinton did?

Because, to be honest, furthering your political career seem far from a higher calling. Politics is dirty, and at times, one of the most deceitful jobs a person can have, because its about power -who has it and who wants it. You have to lie a lot of the times to get what you want, break promises to one to appease two. Lawyers and politicians are made fun of because some -like you -deserve the criticism steered at you.

But because you are blind to your ambitions, to self-serving vices, you believe any attack on you is because your a woman or because your a conservative or because your a beauty queen or because, well, your about as ready to lead this nation as a box of hair is.

Your ego, thin as it is, is your driving force here to make these claims of a higher calling. And since you refuse to state what are the exact reasons you are resigning, voicing some odd, nebula's reason at that, you mock the press.

Yes, they don't understand. No one understands. And until you clear this up, they'll continue to ask, continue to mock you.

But maybe that's what you want. Since you returned to Alaska, no one cares about you anymore, and that bothers you. You loved the fame that McCain brought you, and like a junkie, once it went away, you needed to get a new fix.

On July third, you found it.

Only thing is, what McCain gave you was free. Now you're going to have to pay to keep the high of celebrity going.

This is what you wanted, just shut up and take it. Or tell the world what your doing and do it.

Either way, you'll still be mocked. But if a higher calling means getting out of politics, well I would take it. It's obvious you cannot live with a mirror in front of you.
