There is something surreal about Sarah Palin’s resignation speech. There she is, full of beans, in cranked-up politician mode, talking about this pressing issue and that pressing issue, like someone running all-out for office—and what is she doing? She’s not running for office. She’s resigning her office in the middle of the term to which she was elected, and not because she was elected or appointed to some higher office, which happens commonly in politics, but simply because she doesn’t want to be there any more. If she has so much pizzazz for her state’s pressing issues, why is she prematurely quitting the governorship? The contradiction gives the speech an air of falsity and unreality.
