She's finally found it. Check out the interview with ABC News. I loved this:

"You know why they're confused? I guess they cannot take something nowadays at face value."


Well, yes. Would you take anything Sarah Palin told you at face value? Then this bald-faced lie:

"You know conditions have really changed in Alaska in the political arena since Aug. 29, since I was tapped to run for VP. When that opposition research -- those researchers really bombarded Alaska -- started digging for dirt and have not let up. They're not gonna find any dirt. We keep proving that every time we win an ethics violation lawsuit and we've won every one of them. But it has been costing our state millions of dollars. It's cost Todd and me. You know the adversaries would love to see us put on the path of personal bankruptcy so that we can't afford to run."

She has not won every ethics violation inquiry and the state has not run up millions of dollars in costs. But we do know that something prompted her sudden, panicked resignation. We just don't know yet what it was. Will the press start asking the questions they have refused to ask for the past ten months? It is their job to find out the truth behind deranged public officials. It is not their job to run interference for them.
