Here's the lesson being delivered by Sarah Palin.
1) Convince a majority of people to give their time and money and votes to your campaign.
2) Serve half a term.
4) Scam your way into $12 million since quitting.
5) Expect people to vote for you for president even though you ditched your previous voters in lieu of screechy, sarcastic speeches and reality-star fame.
The moral? Quitting and grifting pays.
