In a surprise move, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has announced she is resigning, effective July 26th. She claims that because she is not running for re-election, she doesnâ€™t want to be a lame duck and subject herself to politics as usual.
Odd excuse. Either some scandal is about to break or Palin has decided that stepping down over a year before her term is over will help her prepare for a 2012 run at the presidency. Or, you know, sheâ€™s sick of the publicity.
Itâ€™ll be interesting to see what the former vice-presidential nominee does next.
