Quitters Never WinNot since Sarah Palin abruptly quit being a Governor, not even since Edward VIII abruptly quit being a King, has Lake County been this surprised over a resignation statement. Your LakeCountyEye of course refers to Island Lake Trustee Laurie Rabattini's sudden announcement that she will no longer chair her village finance committee.

The resignation was delivered via a long and whinesome statement, reproduced on Rabattini's blog. The nut graf:
So with that ... I resign my chair of Finance and Administration. I do not ... let me make this clear ... I do not resign my Trustee seat.
Trustee Rabattini Resigns Chair
Rabattini, best-known for having coined the neologism ...
has been a vociferous & partisan critic of Island Lake government before and during her tenure as a trustee. Her resignation is widely regarded as an attempt to make a virtue of political necessity. As even the most glassy-eyed operative knows, it's easier to be a political bomb thrower from the safety of the back bench, than it is from the front line. Take it from your LakeCountyEye -- nuff said!

In related news, the Daily Herald and other MSM outlets have reported that Suzi Schmidt will not try to keep her Senate seat in District 31:
Facing domestic problems, Suzi Schmidt won't run in 2012
Boom goes the dynamite.

Well said Mr. Eye.

Rabattini is an absolute disaster for this village. High school drama, with all the bad grammar.

She still writes about herself in the third person on the blog that she writes herself.

No clue nitwit. Her and Suzy could be good buddies.
