Palin's Farewell Speech on par with Miss Teen South Carolina

Holy crap, have you heard or read this?!

On Sunday, , aka. Sarah Palin, resigned as governor of Alaska and spoke the following:

What an absolutely beautiful day it is, and it is my honor to speak to all Alaskans, to our Alaskan family this last time as your governor. And it is always great to be in Fairbanks. The rugged rugged hardy people that live up here and some of the most patriotic people whom you will ever know live here, and one thing that you are known for is your steadfast support of our military community up here and I thank you for that and thank you United States military for protecting the greatest nation on Earth. Together we stand.

And getting up here I say it is the best road trip in America soaring through nature's finest show. Denali, the great one, soaring under the midnight sun. And then the extremes. In the winter time it's the frozen road that is competing with the view of ice fogged frigid beauty, the cold though, doesn't it split the Cheechakos from the Sourdoughs? And then in the summertime such extreme summertime about a hundred and fifty degrees hotter than just some months ago, than just some months from now, with fireweed blooming along the frost heaves and merciless rivers that are rushing and carving and reminding us that here, Mother Nature wins. It is as throughout all Alaska that big wild good life teeming along the road that is north to the future. That is what we get to see every day. Now what the rest of America gets to see along with us is in this last frontier there is hope and opportunity and there is country pride.

Note the bold section of rambling non-brilliance. Conan O'Brian struck gold by having William Shatner repeat such as a poem on the Late Show. Watch the video here.

I'm pretty sure Miss Teen South Carolina, Caitlin Upton, helped her out with that. Upton's speech here for comparison:

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some, people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as, uh, South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our [children].

I linked that video in my entry. It is clever.

Somehow I missed that. Glad I am not the only one. Too bad Sarah isnt clever! Daily Kos has a link to a poll showing that most Americans think her new job should be "homemaker". Keep her away from mine!

I'd rather have her trapped in my basement than running any part of the country.
