So, Sarah Palin, as planned, is no longer a public official. She went out with a few fireworks yesterday:

And first, some straight talk for some, just some in the media because another right protected for all of us is freedom of the press, and you all have such important jobs reporting facts and informing the electorate, and exerting power to influence. You represent what could and should be a respected honest profession that could and should be the cornerstone of our democracy. Democracy depends on you, and that is why, that’s why our troops are willing to die for you. So, how ’bout in honor of the American soldier, ya quite makin’ things up. And don’t underestimate the wisdom of the people, and one other thing for the media, our new governor has a very nice family too, so leave his kids alone.

I went on ABC’s “Top Line” this afternoon to discuss Palin’s departure. She may be leaving office, but she’s certainly not ceding the microphone. I’d bet a pretty penny that we’ll be seeing a lot of Palin in the months to come as she tours the lower 48.
