PALIN STEPS DOWN, TRANSFERS POWER, AND RECORDS ANOTHER "10" ON THE PHONY SCALE

Governor Palin announces she will not seek another term as Governor of Alaska, and will transfer power to the Lt. Governor Parnell, ending a "lame duck" period for which she "just isn't wired for."
Can she possibly be so delusional as to think she can turn this into a large enough positive to vault her into a 2012 presidential bid? Could she, in fact be the front runner for the GOP slot? Fact is, there IS no front runner...or even a GOP leader these days. The Conservative party (if you want to call it that--considering their last Prez hopeful was more of a moderate), is in absolute disarray. Some would even say they are in a free fall. And for all of the remembrances of the pathetic VP run last year, which did much to solidify her as an absolute empty headed moron, at least she has not: been caught doing the tango in Buenos Aires (Mark Sanford), or having sex with a staffer (John Ensign) or calling Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor a “racist” (Newt Gingrich) or disappearing to an ambassadorship in China (Jon Huntsman).
In her 6 minute stump speech, which encompassed much more than the state of Alaska, she claims to be able to affect change from the outside better than in her present position. How she plans to do this as a citizen, remains to be seen. But let there be no doubt, day one of the Obama administration marked day one of the Republican presidential run(s).
So what of her chances to overtake the two REAL candidates...Messers Huckabee and Romney? I think Howard Fineman of Newsweek said it best..."To be blunt, the GOP is in such a shambles that in that land of the blind, even this one-eyed woman could become queen. "

She has more executive experience (still) than Obama?
