At some point during the failed administration of George W. Bush, I wrote that only a terribly flawed political system could allow someone like him to become President.
Then Sarah Palin came along, proving the system is not only flawed but out of control.
Palin officially left her office as governor of Alaska Sunday, leaving the job a year early because, she claimed, she could do more for Alaska as a private citizen.
Actually, she did a lot for her home state by quitting. Even a state as loony as Alaska deserves better than Sarah Palin.
