I received this collection of quotes today from a friend:

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“There was a surprising announcement over the weekend. The governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, is leaving office. She’s stepping down. Something I said?”

– David Letterman, referring to his feud with Palin

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“President Obama right now is in Russia. Obama went there because from Russia you can actually see Sarah Palin cleaning out her office in Alaska.”

– Conan O’Brien

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“I was talking to a lady here in the audience, she was from Alaska and we were wondering about this. How does a thing like this work? She steps down and she’s no longer the governor of Alaska. And we figured it out: Miss Congeniality steps up and is now the governor of Alaska.”

– David Letterman

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“A lot of public figures do this. When you have trouble, you blame the media. And today as a matter of fact, Sarah Palin was up in a helicopter shooting Wolf Blitzer.”

— David Letterman

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“Over the weekend Sarah Palin shocked the country by resigning as governor of Alaska. Yeah, Republicans aren’t sure who is going to fill her role in the party, but they are in talks with several of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

— Conan O’Brien

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“This is weird, in her resignation speech, Sarah Palin said she polled her children on whether she should resign and the count was unanimous. Yeah, even her children thought she was in over her head.”

— Conan O’Brien

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“Well, according to a new post-election survey, people want Sarah Palin to run for president in 2012. It says she’s been getting thousands of calls from people pleading with her to run, all Democrats.”

— Jay Leno

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“I have said Sarah Palin’s political ambition combined with her intellect is like putting a jet engine on a golf cart; lots of horse power and no steering capabilities. Today she proved it.”

— Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore, whom Sarah Palin is threatening to sue

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“Sarah Palin decided to chuck her responsibilities but still wants to have an impact on public debate. So what does that make her, a community organizer?”

– NPR’s Michel Martin

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“Watching Sarah Palin’s press conference on Friday was like watching a drunk seal trying to land a plane, or in basketball terms (which Sarah prefers) like watching a grade-schooler try to score on Kobe while jabbering inanely.”

— Huffington Post blogger David Stemler

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“Caribou Barbie is one nutty puppy.”

— New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

“I think Sarah Palin is on the verge of becoming the Miami Vice of American politics: Something a lot of people once thought was cool and then 20 years later look back, shake their heads and just kind of laugh.”

— Republican media consultant Todd Harris

Could Sarah STILL be elected to high office? Some people compare her to Reagan, who back in 1980 lots of people swore could never be elected President because he had been an actor.

But when he ran for office Reagan had never made a fool of himself like this.

…Well…there WAS Bedtime for Bonzo
