(Newser) – Sarah Palin made no public appearances yesterday but lashed back at the media on her Facebook page for the negative coverage of her resignation, reports Politico. “How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it’s about country,” she wrote. “And though it's honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make.”

Though she's offered no specifics on her plans, Palin hinted that she will remain in the public eye. “I am now looking ahead and how we can advance this country together with our values of less government intervention, greater energy independence, stronger national security, and much-needed fiscal restraint," she wrote. "I hope you will join me." Meanwhile, former running mate John McCain said in a statement that he has the "greatest respect" for Palin and expects her to "play an important leadership role" in the GOP and the nation.
