New Palin Spin: She Didn't Quit
Talk about Washington double talk!
U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) says his former running mate, lame duck Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin who just announced she's leaving office before her term expires didn't quit.
"I don't think she quit," McCain told NBC's Meet the Press.
"I just think she changed her priorities."
Meanwhile, Palin is planning to do some serious campaigning for other candidates after leaving office. She's penning a book (which reportedly includes a lucrative advance). And is rumored to be in negotiations to become a talk show host.
So it's possible that McCain is right. She didn't quit life or politics. But she certainly did quit as Alaska's governor.
I haven't seen such Washington spinning since Bill Clinton said, "I didn't have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky!"
