Palin was quite true to her character of being against wasteful spending, and watching millions being spent by the state to counter and endless stream of frivolous litigation was not her idea of smart. Stepping aside, saving the state money and letting her Lt. step up and finish what she started was 100% in line with her principles.
People like you, so called moderates that parrot the left wing media's POV on Palin are not folks whom I find any credibility in. You claim to be X but you act like Y.
