Sarah Palin is resigning in order to something something something, mainly because she's such a maverick that Alaska cannot contain her. The video of her resignation announcement is here, and it's basically inscrutable. It's a breathless, rat-a-tat ejaculation of phrases and seemingly unrelated thoughts about something related to governing, and about how she can't waste money being Governor just to be Governor, because of catchphrases and such. Imagine if you took Palin's normal incoherence, ramped the speed up, and then tried to announce you were running for president while not announcing it and also detailing every anecdote you'd ever tell on the campaign trail...in seven minutes.


I'm watching this for the second time, and I really have no idea what she thought she was doing, or what she was saying. I think she may actually have declared herself president of Honduras.
