A Little Hypocrisy With Your Vintage Whine?

This is quitter/fighter Sarah Palin just ten months ago exhorting Hillary Clinton to not drop out, to "plow ahead" and stressing the importance of knowing what you're getting into. It's very good advice, actually, advice I'd even give my own kids.

Alas, the lame duck Governor of Alaska, as with so many of us, does not heed her own good advice. As a result, Hillary Clinton, who stuck it out, is now Secretary of State and Sarah Palin, who did not, will be in 19 days an aging, unemployed beauty queen and an asterisk drawn in lipstick.

Tip o' the tinfoil hat to Newsy.com for catching this Newsweek clip and making it relevant to current news.

Well, I grant your basic premise, but she will be an enormously wealthy author and speech maker, travelling the country and being adored by millions of wingnuts. She quit the governorship because she wanted to get an early start on that.

I agree with Jayhawk. Her political career is over.. she'll probably get a job with Faux News as a Political Analyst... if she knew anything about politics.
