Yet Another Ode to Sarah Palin

Oh, Richard Connaughton, my high school English/literature teacher. You taught us to dissect and analyze the written word, and discuss its subtle meanings, and to wring the last bit hidden or overt wisdom out of every last phrase. So tell me, dear sir: what am I to make of this?

That's Sarah Palin, leaving on a high note. I have read it and listening to it, and parts of it still amaze me.

If she was delivering a "state of Alaska" speech, or trying for re-election, the middle part where she goes on about "I promised...(and how she delivered)" would make sense. I don't know if her claims are true or not, but at least it's composed of logical thought patterns.

Otherwise, I'm reading specious links between the military ... and pretty much everything and anything. Also, unsubstantiated accusations against "the media." (Only some of you; not Fox News, her likely next employer, of course!)

But the most outrageous paragraph, from a truth and logic standpoint, is this one:
"We are here today at a 'changing of the guard'. Now, knowing how much I love this state – some still choose not to hear why I made the decision to chart a new course to advance the state. It should be obvious. It is because I love Alaska this much that I feel it is my duty to avoid the unproductive, typical 'politics-as-usual' lame duck session in one’s last year in office. How does that benefit you? With this decision I will be able to fight even harder for you – for what is right and for the truth. And I have never felt that you need a title to do that. So, as we all move forward together, let us vow to keep championing Alaska and to advocate for responsible development and smaller government and freedom."

Excuse me, madam, but how is your giving incoherent explanation my "choice" not to understand? The last year (and a half) of an elected official's term is not "lame duck" unless he/she is ineligible for reelection. And even so, shouldn't it be your DUTY to do your job to the best of your ability up until the end?

You're basically admitting you planned on abdicating your responsibilities anyways, so you might as well leave. Madam, governors of states should not get "senioritis!"

And as for your assertion that "Governor" is an empty, meaningless title... well, I'll leave that to your fellow governors to dispute. If they can make heads or tails of your "arguments."

In conclusion, I think Sarah Palin would have failed Mr. Connaughton's class. Right before he started weeping and begging for the sweet release of retirement.
