In 1754, Lt. Col. George Washington quit the Virginia militia, an obscure fact that now seems a bit more interesting in the wake of Gov. Sarah Palin's resignation in Alaska.That does seem more interesting.
This whole George Washington/ Sarah Palin thing is even more eerie when you consider all the similarities:
- Neither were members of the liberal elite or mainstream media
- They were both pretty mavericky (King George thought George Washington went rogue)
- Both had Tea Parties go on under their watch
- Both had nice hair
- Both had children named Trig
- Neither ever told a lie
Of course, it is slightly more complicated that that. Palin herself said:
"I am not a quitter. I am a fighter."So if Washington was a quitter, how can we possibly compare non-quitter Sarah Palin to him?
Although when you think about it, General George Washington was also a fighter, so don't worry- George Washington and Sarah Palin are still pretty much the same person.
