There are lots of reactions to Sarah Palin’s resignation today (me, I think she’s just preparing to run for the presidential term of 2013-2014.) And a lot of it is reaction to the timing – why make an announcement on what is for many people the start of a long weekend, so that the news gets less attention?
I just realized: both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are on vacation next week. Not only will this delay those shows making fun of her about this for as long as possible, but she’s got to know that this will tear out the hearts of the creative crews of those shows, who have given her such a hard time over the past year.
Well played, briefly-Governess Palin!
