Palin quits as governor of Alaska

She’ll step down by the end of the month, almost a year-and-a-half before her term expires.

I invite you to watch her resignation statement in all its rambling strangeness.

Call me a liberal elitist looking down my nose at Bible-believing, gun-owning Americans (which I don’t believe I am), but leaving aside the content of what she says, I find something disturbing about her– which has nothing to do with her as a woman or a conservative or “down to earth”– and I’m more relieved than ever that she is not a heartbeat away from the most powerful position in the world.

What was McCain thinking?
