Palin Speech

I couldn't stomach the whole thing, but what I watched: amateur hour. Incoherent text, stilted delivery. My evil twin (who, some say, is actually me, a rumor I deny vehemently) couldn't help imagining how the Bushes (Sr.) would feel about having to invite the Palins to a barbecue in Kennebunkport. Yeah, that would go well.

If McCain loses, they should use this speech for a one-shot revival of MST3K. If McCain wins, they should show this class in future history classes as the moment when we finally and irrevocably embraced idiocracy. Either way, it should be used in dictionaries to illustrate the phrases 'fatuous platitudes' and 'the evil of banality'.
