CNN, you tease, you

I saw this headline on my ticker: “I’m through,” Palin says.

If only. Someone at CNN has a sense of humor and a surefire way to guarantee a click on a Palin story that most of us would avoid like the plague.

Alas, Palin the quitter is not through with trying to suck every nanosecond out of her fifteen minutes, but (claiming to be) through with the media. She says she’s done with whining about the media as she whines about the media, doesn’t accept unexpected support from NOW about something Bill Maher said about her, even though as a woman she should be able to gracefully put aside the political differences she has with the organization and understand that in this instance, agreement is correct – then again, nobody ever accused Palin of having grace of any sort – and then ends the whole thing with a double negative that means exactly the opposite of what she was presumably trying to say:

“It’s not America’s role not to be out and about nation building and telling other countries how to live,” Palin added.

Of course, with Reload Palin, that could very well be exactly what she meant, since she doesn’t seem to have any issues with Bush & Co getting us into boondoggles in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, I’m certain that what she actually meant was that anything Obama does must be bad by definition, and our support of our allies in enforcing the UN resolution – and not invading the entire country – is likewise bad.

But the very best part of the article is where she’s talking about how she’s looking at the field of GOP possible contenders for 2012 when deciding whether to get into the race.

“I am tempted to because I am still wondering who is going to be out there with a servant’s heart, willing to serve the American people for the right reason. Not for ego, not for special interests…I am waiting to see, who else is out there willing to do this.”

Well, it sure as hell is not you, Sarah Palin. You have no servant’s heart, unless you keep it in a jar next to your bed. You quit the Governorship of Alaska halfway through, and last time I checked, Alaskans were Americans. You have no desire to serve anyone except yourself, and the only right reason apparent in your activities comes in the form of a signed check.

Go away. Your “you betcha, aw shucks” routine may have worked at first on some people, but all that’s left are the most diehard fans who think anything out of your vapid head is sheer genius while the rest of us look on in horror, knowing these people cannot be reasoned with in this or other instances.
