"Pullin' a Palin" Now In The Urban Dictionary

Original post made by Fred, Downtown, on Jul 9, 2009

Former Alaska Governor Sarah "The Quitter" Palin, who announced her impending resignation from office last week, is now the inspiration for a new piece of slang. The phrase, "Pullin' a Palin," is currently defined by as:

1. Quitting when the going gets tough; abandoning the responsibility entrusted to you by your neighbors for book advances and to make money on the lecture circuit.

2. Bizarre move that will damn ambitions for higher office.

how about adding "pulling a fred" as a synonym for taking a cheap political shot?

and no democrat in history has left office early or to make money on a book or lecture tour? careful there fred, you nearly crossed over into the lunatic fringe.
