Even Dick Cheney’s, like, WTF Sarah Palin. Why did you quit?

During an appearance today on Laura Ingraham’s radio show to promote his new book, Dick Cheney was asked whether Sarah Palin had what it takes to hold to the office of vice president.

“You do need to have a thick skin. You’ll be the subject of a lot of criticism,” said Cheney. He added, “I’ve never gotten around the question of her having left the governorship of Alaska midterm.  I’ve never heard that adequately explained.”

If you recall, Palin walked off the job as Alaska governor in 2009. She repeatedly cited not wanting “politics as usual” as one reason for stepping down.

Her current political ambitions remain puzzling, even for her mega fans.

Palin plans to speak at a tea party rally in Indianola, Iowa on Saturday.
