Palin to Run on Oil Development Platform in 2012

Really. Outside of her flaming display of hurt feelings, it's about the only thing that makes any kind of sense in her resignation "statement" (if we are so generous as to characterize it in that way).

(You'll have to ignore the eccentric capitalization and odd verb choices; clearly, Palin without a speechwriter is like Bush on steroids — all the malapropisms, but none of the focus.)

We aggressively and responsibly develop our resources because they
were created to be used to better our world… to HELP people… and we
protect the environment and Alaskans (the resource owners) foremost
with our policies.

Here's some of the things we've done:

We created a petroleum integrity office to oversee safe development.
We held the line FOR Alaskans on Point Thomson – and finally for the
first time in decades – they're drilling for oil and gas.

We have AGIA, the gasline project – a massive bi-partisan victory
(the vote was 58 to 1!) – also succeeding as intended – protecting
Alaskans as our clean natural gas will flow to energize us, and
America, through a competitive, pro-private sector project. This is the
largest private sector energy project, ever. THIS is energy

And ACES – another bipartisan effort – is working as intended and
industry is publicly acknowledging its success. Our new oil and gas
"clear and equitable formula" is so Alaskans will no longer be taken
advantage of. ACES incentivizes NEW exploration and development and
JOBS that were previously not going to happen with a monopolized North
Slope oil basin.

In other words, Palin's most noteworthy accomplishments as a governor, according to Palin herself,  all relate to oil and natural gas development.

Logically, one can only conclude that this will be her platform for a national run. "Drill, Baby, Drill II."

And then she concludes:

In the words of General MacArthur said, "We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction."

Wow. Steve Brodner takes a look at this craziness and makes the suddenly obvious connection to another flaming narcissist:
