What the heck does this have to do with State politics?

Law prof. Rick Esenberg's latest love letter to Sarah Palin:
When your problem is gravitas and lack of experience, bailing on the a principle way to get those things seems like throwing in the towel.
Er, what?

Earlier: "A masterwork."

Earlier: "A masterwork."

Very, very entertaining in retrospect.

From the comments, William Tyroler on Palin's brilliance as a media critic and a public speaker:

I don't think we'll hear any more stories about insufficient vetting, or predictions of an Eagleton-like withdrawal.

Separately: The dawning realization that Palin may well be Obama's equal when it comes to speechifying -- his one demonstrable talent -- must shock his supporters to their core.

Well, you can't be wrong unless you make a substantial prediction, so props for taking two swings, even if they were huge whiffs. And there is one thing right in there: At the end of the day, Palin's brand of quitting was a lot more radical than Eagleton's. He only quit a job he didn't have.
