    Palin on Fishing

    During a press conference discussing her resignation Sarah Palin says "Only dead fish go with the flow." -July 3, 2009.

    Well I'm not from Alaska, but I'm fairly certain dead fish don't do anything and live fish definitely go with the flow. I get was she was going for...but this quote basically tells us nothing new because live fish also go with this flow.

    Unless you're a certain kind of salmon and you swim upstream. THAT would have made sense. If she'd called herself a salmon.

    Palin on Quitters

    "It may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: 'Sit down and shut up,' but that's the worthless, easy path; that's a quitter's way out."

    You have to love the irony of demeaning quitters after she resigns as Governor. What's wrong with the easy path anyway? Her daughter prefers being easy doesn't she? Wow that was uncalled for wasn't it?

    Palin on God and Money

    "Who calls a shot like that? Who makes a decision like that? It's a disturbing trend." Nov. 6, 2009.

    This ridiculous quote was in reference to a conspiracy theory she was pushing involving the word God moving further from the center on American currency. Yes, it's a vast conspiracy more complex then the Da Vinci Code. Kudos Sarah Palin for your amazing powers of observation. we shouldn't worry about such trifle topics like unemployment and the economy and start worrying about what a nickel looks like.

    Palin on Work Ethics

    "How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it's about country. And though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make." --Sarah Palin, July 4, 2009.

    She overestimated her ability to have it all. It happens to the best of us. Playing the victim here by implying people fault her for basing the decision on the welfare of her family is ridiculous. We all know you resigned to read the book you pretended to write.

    Palin on Reading the News

    During this interview Katie Couric asks Sarah Palin 3 times about what she reads to stay current. The shortest clearest form of the question "Can you name a few (magazines and newspapers)?" Palin's response about geography and what the politicians in Washington think about Alaska still doesn't answer the question.

    It's sad how even adult politicians are worrying about what the other cool politicians think about them. Gotta wonder if the House and Senate are just like one big Gossip Girl episode.
