One would think such a headline would push the Michael Jackson insanity aside long enough for some news to leak through, but although Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has just announced that she will resign from office within the next few weeks, further explanation seems elusive.

It's very tempting to speculate, but perhaps we'll just have to wait for the hysteria to abate before the networks can spare any personnel to find out what's happening outside the world of Michael Jackson.


The pundits and party officials weigh in:

Either Sarah Palin is leaving the people of Alaska high and dry to pursue her long shot national political ambitions or she simply can't handle the job now that her popularity has dimmed and oil revenues are down,

said DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse.

Either way, her decision to abandon her post and the people of Alaska who elected her continues a pattern of bizarre behavior that more than anything else may explain the decision she made today.

Of course, you'd expect that from a Democrat, but even Ed Rollins thinks she looks "terribly inept" for not finishing her job and indeed if this is about a 2012 run, we can expect to hear about her being a quitter or a "runaway governor."

Only Republican Strategist Mary Matalin seems to think it was brilliant:

Her delivery was incredible, if you're a less charismatic person, you probably couldn't pull it off.

But, of course, whether she "pulled it off" at all is as much a matter of opinion as is her alleged "charisma," which at least in Alaska seems to be wearing thin.

Now back to Michael Jackson...
