Let’s parse the word ‘quit’

LET’S PARSE THE WORD ‘QUIT’…. John McCain, making his 10 gazillionth appearance on a Sunday morning show, was asked on “Meet the Press” this morning about his former running mate’s decision to resign half-way through her only term as Alaska’s governor.

“I don’t think she quit. I don’t know if there was a quote promise [to the people of Alaska to continue serving as Governor]. But I do know that she will be an effective player on the national stage.”

Maybe McCain has some other definition of “quit”?

Sarah Palin sought a job; she accepted the job; and now she’s decided to leave the job before its natural end. McCain may prefer a more gentle synonym, but whether or not she “quit” hardly seems open to debate.
