PALIN: Can’t she just go away for awhile?

Re: “Why Sarah Palin won’t run for president in 2012″ (TNT, 11-22).

I am sick of hearing about Palin – about her book, her Twitter comments, her Facebook page, her commentary on Fox News, her show about beautiful Alaska, her “articles” in various papers. I want this woman to just shut up and get out of my face for 24 hours. That is my Thanksgiving prayer.

When I open my paper or watch the news on Thursday morning, I don’t want to hear or read one word about this quasi-celebrity, political candidate, entertainer, Grizzly Mom. I find her neurotic necessity to always be the center of attention exhausting and, lately, just boring. She is starting to behave like that annoying casual friend who latches onto you at a party and won’t let you engage with anyone else.

Give some of us a break and just go away for awhile. Some of us actually prefer spending time with our families.
