There are many, many things to say about Sarah Palin's announcement today, but one point has not really been made, and that is that quitting is not a conservative value. 

Conservatives generally admire people who stick it out -- especially when the going gets tough.  Today's announcement was a lot of things.  It was erratic and weird, to be sure -- but it was also unconservative...

If Sarah Palin has some personal or family issues which preclude her finishing her term, I certainly respect her decision to step down.  But if she thinks quitting the job she was hired to do is somehow a wise political strategy for earning a promotion -- she's just plain wrong ..
