Palin struts her incoherent stuff

Posted By on Mon, Nov 9, 2009 at 2:20 PM

Sarah Palin didn’t want anyone to bring recording devices or cellphones to her big speech Friday night at a Wisconsin Right to Life fundraising banquet. No wonder. The Politico Web site bought tickets to the event, and their report is a showcase of Palin’s, er, limited vocabulary, tortured sentences, and, more troubling, her goofball conspiratorial view of government and all those evil liberals. Besides going off on a factually challenged rant about the “In God We Trust” motto being moved to the edge of new dollar coins (a Bush era episode which was reversed two years ago), "Palin ... frequently wandered off-script to make a point, offering audience members a casual ‘awesome’ or ‘bogus’ in discussing otherwise weighty topics," according to the account by Politico’s Jonathan Martin.

Here’s our favorite quote from Palin’s Friday speech (see if you can make sense of it): “It is so bogus that society is sending a message right now and has been for probably the last 40 years that a woman isn’t strong enough or smart enough to be able to pursue an education, a career and her rights and still let her baby live.” Quick question: Who in hell is telling women this? Anyone you’ve heard of? Didn’t think so.

Don’t forget, Ms. Eloquence has a book coming out soon. In case you missed it, author and columnist Carl Hiaasen wrote a hilarious column, posing as Palin’s book editor, for last Sunday’s Miami Herald. Don’t miss it.
