Palin's Farewell Speech: My Father Smelled of Eldeberries

Sarah Palin's leaving Alaska for a "higher calling". Here for your snarking pleasure, I give you her farewell speech - with commentary.

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.
The honor part was cool, but actually being your Governor? That part sucked.
And it is always great to be in Fairbanks.
Check. Fairbanks = always great.

You guys just don't get it. Palin is a poet. If the same words were coming from cc cummings the intelligensia would go going ohhh and ahhh and gimme more cheesepuffs.

Oh, please, please, please, let God's Own Party nominate Palin for 2012. Obama/Biden would hardly even have to campaign. The late night comics would do all the work for them.

And actually, Judith, I've perfected a technique of carefully opening the Cheezy Poofs bag so that I can use it as a funnel directly into my mouth. No muss, no fuss. A little Poof overload sometimes, but life is risk.

Jack I'm sure the "Nailin Palin" folks would be happy about that, but you just made me vurp.

I dunno, Angie. I could go for some hot Sarah Palin on Liz Cheney action.

@Jason - Yeah, it takes a steady stream of Diet Coke to keep me caffeinated enough to decipher Sarah-speak. The contrast between her (and W) with Obama is striking.

My nightmare candidacy? Sarah Palin/Liz Cheney 2016

Ow! My brain! "It is as throughout all Alaska that big wild good life teeming along the road that is north to the future." Did a native English speaker really say this? Palin needs to ease up on the Ambien; she's sleep-speechifying again. And I thought W was incoherent.

Yes, Jack, we dodged a bullet in 2008, and yet, somehow, the great, lumbering beast that is the US electorate managed to take a direct hit in 2004 from the biggest, dumbest, slowest, most obvious bullet in history. I will never understand how the Bush/Cheney cabal got re-elected. If any administration were ever corrupt, incompetent, and wrongheaded enough to get fired, it would be that one. But instead, more than half of US voters just sat there as the bullet approached at half a mile an hour, eating Cheezy Poofs, wiping orange grease on their overalls, and eagerly watching the disaster unfold on Faux News.

Seriously guys, we dodged a fucking bullet in 2008.

I'm finding it hilarious that, as I'm reading through the comments here, I'm looking at an advertisement to "support SarahPac, The Official Sarah Palin Pac." Sweet irony.

Haha, wow thanks Ron. I did a rhetorical analysis for English 101 on a Bush W. speech, so I had a little practice in parsing nonsense :)
