Dismantling? Imploding?

First there was Ensign. (adultery)

Then there was Sanford. (adultery)

Then Coleman finally officially lost to Franken.

Now there's Palin resigning the Alaska governorship for "the team" or some ridiculous reason.

It must really suck to be a Republican right now. One wonders if the party will survive long enough to send any of its members up for re-election in 2010.

Of course, Palin thinks she can win the presidency in 2012. I suppose she resigned now so she could spend the next few years learning something about civics, speaking, world culture, reading "everything" (like she always has). Naturally she denies all this and claims not to have any plans. At least I think that's what she said in one of the most incoherent press conferences I've ever heard. All I can remember is her constantly going back to sports metaphors, which only served to prove she knows more about women's basketball than governance and politics. By the time she finished speaking I thought I'd just come off a dizzying carnival ride. That's what happens when you listen to a ditz for some 7 to 8 minutes. Even CNN's cameraman appeared to be losing it as he listened: the camera briefly jarred upwards towards the sky in what I can only surmise was the cameraman himself suddenly coming back to his senses after a moment of complete confusion induced by Mrs. Palin.
