As Sarah Palin prepares to step down as governor, we salute her unforgettable time in the national limelight by looking back at her political life in pictures. OK, they're fake pictures, but they tell a story of a woman who is destined for a higher comedic calling.
Letterman Contributed to Palin's Resignation
Joking about Sarah Palin's resignation Monday night, David Letterman quipped, "Was it something I said?"
As it turns out, the answer is yes.
Sarah Palin's attorney, Thomas Van Flein said in an interview with CNN that Letterman's jokes about Palin and her daughter contributed to her decision to resign.
"When people don't accept normal bounds of decency making jokes like that about children, maybe this is not good for the state right now," Van Flein said. "And maybe somebody else who is not the subject, and whose family is not the subject of this scrutiny, can move the state forward."
So let's get this straight, Palin was prepared to stare down Putin and nuke Ahmadinejad, but a comedian proved too much for her? Lord only knows what she had in store for the likes of Letterman and Tina Fey if she were ever given the power to torture people.
'Department of Law' to Protect President Palin
Sarah Palin's says she resigned because she's been hounded by too many ethics investigations. So what if she were president?
Her answer to that question has been added to our list of the 10 dumbest Sarah Palin quotes of all time:
"I think on a national level your Department of Law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we've been charged with and automatically throw them out," Palin told ABC News.
Sorry, Sarah, there is no Department of Law, but you may have better luck with the Department of Homeland Hilarity.
