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.

Hey Felch, that's the earlier speech (when she announced her resignation, not when she actually did it a month later). I figure, if I'm coming up with the same comedic ideas as Vanity Fair, that's a good sign I've probably moved beyond knock-knocks and fart jokes!

If only it was her last farewell speech. I'm afraid we'll have to endure many more. This slow train wreck is far from over.

This has already been given the treatment by Vanity Fair.

Oh ok, there is a vid and links... that will work much easier. I will check it out again in the morning, I'm off to work now. Thanks for the extra info about your blog.

Wow, well at least scroll down to the video and funny links. I'm thinking I should start breaking these debunking posts up into installments. Make it easier on my readers and me.

LOL, I'm sorry Angie. I tried, I honestly did and I do appreciate that you posted this and I did get through as much of it as I could but even in text, her annoying voice and..... 'whatever you could call her delivery style', not to mention her ignorant message, comes through just as clear as if it were HD audio right in my livingroom!!! I'm sorry.

Of course not. That's what makes it challenging - she hides behind poor language skills to actually say some messed up stuff. You have to pay attention to hear it all, and it isn't worth most people's time. Me? I love debunking, unpacking, and ripping to pieces any kind of propaganda.

I got about 1/3 of the way through and I had to give up on the basis that the woman (or her speechwriter?) doesn't have a solid grasp of English grammar.
