See, not quitting would be the quitter’s way out.  She’s, well, in her own words:

Life is too short to compromise time and resources… it may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand: “Sit down and shut up”, but that’s the worthless, easy path; that’s a quitter’s way out.

Oh, and she’s a fighter too!

So, is she really quitting because she thinks it would help her win the presidency in 2012?  Is she quitting because a scandal is in the wings waiting to break?  Does she have a Fox News show lined up?  Or has she simply had enough?

The normally sober conservative talking head William Kristol says it’s a “shrewd move.”  I give this guy credit for his honesty in once admitting that the whole conservative “liberal media establishment” meme was pretty much conjured up to “work the ref.”  But I think he’s scrambing for good news here.

Here’s yet another opportunity for Mark Sanford to slip out of the headlines.  Let’s see if he keeps his mouth shut this time.
