"Some are debating whether [Palin's] critics “won” by chasing her off the stage. Well, she chased herself off the stage and chose not to even fulfill her responsibilities to the state that elected her and put her on the stage. (Really, you mean she couldn’t have finished her term and refused national appearances for the balance of her term to lessen the media scrutiny? Hmmm.)"
I don't remember the uproar when Barack Obama resigned in the middle of his term as senator and did not choose to fulfill his responsibilities to the state that elected him and put him on the stage. Or Joe Biden. Or governors Janet Napolitano and Kathleen Sebelius.
Flakiness is all around us, but some have only selective flakiness perception.
