Naturally, it was God who told her to leave her job.
Her political death, if not her real one, is a tantalising prospect and it seems that her actions have split an already wonderfully divided, bickering and tedious GOP; whose main mouthpiece, FOX, has already called out Sarah Palin as "inarticulate and undereducated with no credentials for any job."
Funny that when everyone else was saying that, they were sexist, liberal, fascists holding back the tide of real change in America...so it goes.
The Guardian has a wonderful take on the situation with "Sarah Palin: The Musical", which I include here in all it's glory, along with a video of Matt Damon taking Sarah Palin down...
Backstage at the end of the 1984 Miss Alaska pageant. Two girls are discussing the ceremony. There are polar bears and moose everywhere. Enter Sarah, wearing a bronze sash.
First girl: "Well done, Sarah! You were awesome!"
Sarah (relieved): "Gee, thanks, Miss Ninilchik. I was really worried for a second. I thought I blew it on the overcoat round."
Second girl: "No way. Ever since you were head of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in high school, you've always had something special. So how are you going to use your new power?"
Sarah (determined, becoming wistful): "I'm going to run for political office. First I want to be the mayor of my home town of Wasilla. Then … who knows?"
Second girl: "But Sarah, God gave you the third best swimsuit-to-personality ratio in Alaska! Don't throw it all away!"
Sarah: "I have to. I cannot rest while wildlife gambols wantonly around our fair state."
First girl: "But do you think the townspeople are ready for your unique brand of neo-medieval impro-babble?"
Sarah: "I don't know, Miss Pilot Station. I just don't know."
Together, they sing Jesus, Help Me Cleanse the Tundra.
The 2008 Republican National Convention. Thousands of cheering people.
Sarah: "Do you know the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick."
Wild laughter. Sarah descends from the podium and is grasped by an aide.
Aide: "Sarah, Sarah! There's just a few days until the financial crisis starts. What are we going to do?"
Sarah: "You can actually see Russia from land, here in Alaska."
Aide: "All right, we'll come back to that. I'm also worried that, as governor of Alaska, you may have knowingly permitted a situation to continue where impermissible pressure was placed on several subordinates in order to advance a personal agenda."
Sarah: "Alaska isn't a foreign country, you know. I read all the newspapers and magazines."
Sarah: "It's all about job creation."
Aide: "Yes, but …"
Sarah sings The Bridge to Somewhere.
