P.Z. Meyers over at Pharyngula has noted that Sarah Palin has quit her bus tour while only half-way through it:
“She’s done. She’s been on this cross-country bus tour to promote her folksy ways, and now she has quit halfway through.
This is a woman with a very short attention span and a complete lack of discipline and focus; she couldn’t complete her governorship, she can’t finish a bus tour, there’s no way she could cope with a grueling presidential campaign.
And if, by some bizarre fluke, she were to actually get elected, I think she’d get bored halfway through the presidential oath of office and decide to go moose hunting, instead.”
I don’t worry about the impact of this on the political scene. I worry that this sort of behavior is representative of a growing segment of our society.
