Advancing in a New Direction

I suppose I should note the latest gift from Palin, which is certainly among her best, most Dickensian, post-modern self-parodic work.
With the god
This land, blessed with clean air, water, wildlife, minerals, AND oil and gas. It's energy! God gave us energy. We aggressively and responsibly develop our resources because they were created to be used to better our world... to HELP people...

and the
A good point guard drives through a full court press, protecting the ball, keeping her eye on the basket… and she knows exactly when to pass the ball so that the team can WIN. And I’m doing that – keeping our eye [what are we, the Graeae?] on the ball that represents sound priorities – smaller government, energy independence, national security, freedom!

In fact, this decision comes after much consideration, and finally [push]polling the most important people in my life - my children (where the count was unanimous... well, in response to asking: "Want me to make a positive difference and fight for ALL our children's future from OUTSIDE the Governor's office?" It was four "yes's" [including, surely, one 'Yeth' or even "Goo goo" - Trig isn't one yet] and one "hell yeah!" The "hell yeah" sealed it - and someday I'll talk about the details of that...

Still, I suppose I should count it to her credit that I now know what 'call an audible" means.
I can't follow the logic of the actual resignation, in that all of the proposed explanations - oncoming scandal, freedom to run for president - would seem to work better if she stayed on. But then one doesn't go to Palin for logic, so just enjoy...

Make the most of her before she vanishes. I think she gets more interest from the left than from the right these days.
re the "eye", the expression is for example "Keep your eye on the ball" and it isn't clear whether you have to make it plural "We are all going to have to keep our eye on the ball" doesn't sound too odd. Unless you think about it. Like "Cheap at half the price".
