Leave it to Sarah Palin to knock the Michael Jackson death coverage off the cable news shows.
But she is the gift that keeps on giving.
Brad Woodhouse, communications director of the Democratic National Committee said that Palin's "decision to abandon her post and the people of Alaska who elected her continues a pattern of bizarre behavior that more than anything else may explain the decision she made today."
(Former Miami Herald political editor Tom Fiedler wonders if Palin has any plans to travel to Argentina.)
Whatever develops over the next few days we'll always have those fond memories of some of Palin's other bizarre moments.
