Sarah Palin--Tweeting Up A Storm

Perhaps seeking to reinforce the points she made at her resignation press conference Friday, Sarah Palin has had some interesting things to say on Twitter today (see her feed here):

Today,try this: "Act in accordance to your conscience -risk- by pursuing larger vision in opposition to popular, powerful pressure"-unknown about 1 hour ago from TwitterBerry

Couple of thoughts for the day on beautiful bright AK morn:"You have to sacrifice to win. That's my philosophy in 6 words."- George Allen. about 2 hours ago from TwitterBerry

...NO ONE can measure DC's 1st attempt @ growing debt to "fix" prob. AK seeks development, industry, jobs for econ recovery vs growing govt about 2 hours ago from TwitterBerry

Talk in DC of a 2nd "Stimulus" Pkg: Impacts on AK? We'd be partaking in even more Big Govt largess & immoral natl debt accumulation when...about 2 hours ago from TwitterBerry

At her press conference, Palin cited baseless attacks (and the time it takes to defend against them), as well as federal stimulus money, as reasons for stepping down. That left more questions than it answered for a lot of observers, but her tweets today have stayed on the message, with the inspirational quotes seeming to justify her decision to step down.
