All of the Palins are such quitters! First Sarah Palin gradually quit making sense over the course of many years, then she quit being governor, and now Todd Palin has quit working the oilfields that gave them blue collar cred.

Todd has resigned from BP. Now that his wife is an accomplished author, he will just spend his winter snowmaching around or whatever, instead of working. It's a good thing the old lady's ghostwriter works so fast, right?

And Meg Stapleton has basically promised that the book will be full of plenty of paranoid attacks on everyone who has wronged poor Sarah so it should sell briskly.

No official reason for Todd's resignation was given, but early reports indicate Palin resigned from BP because the president asked him to go into space and blow up an asteroid.
