Jim Geraghty comments on the New York Times piece, which I will jokingly title "Oh, No! Sarah Palin Makes A Lot Of Money!"
...perhaps the Palin precedent is a little worrisome in that private life is now so much more appealing and exponentially more lucrative than working in government and trying to change policies.

...When you look at the life of a person outside the system, but who retains enormous political influence – i.e. Palin – why would you want the grief that comes from being president or governor?
Geraghty also has a great roundup of other reax to the piece at his morning briefing.
