It makes complete sense to me.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, it’s all about getting out of “the establishment.” There is a huge and growing anti-establishment and anti-incumbent movement. Democrats will be the first target and incumbents in general, the next target of citizen anger and unrest.
Palin knows this and gets it. More importantly, she is more in alignment with those angry at government than the target of that anger. To quote one popular President, “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problems, Government is the problem.”
Sure, she’s probably disgusted with the personal and outrageous attacks on her and her family. Wouldn’t you?
But she’s not done with public service and she realizes that if you want to be part of the solution, it doesn’t mean being in public service here and now.
Sarah Palin will be back but it will only be after she gets some real work done outside of the realm of the establishment and outside of the sphere of a government that the citizens no longer have faith in.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, this is one smart lady.
