Sarah Palin Speech Excerpts

I wanted to be surprised, but I had to read them anyway, because I was worried it would be too fluffy.

From what I see -- I can't tell. What's here is a decent mix of "narrative" (bio) and, if not red meat, at least juicy rare meat.

Below the fold, the one line I will quote. Spoiler alert if you don't want to read it.

I have to quote it, because it's funny. And it's true.

Before that, I'm told this Ann Coulter column is very funny; and the useless drearily liberal Timothy Noah whines, possibly correctly, that the media's nasty full frontal attack on Palin has set her up to knock it out of the park.

I think he's deliberately raising expectations there, in hopes she'll fail to meet them and therefore "fail," but unless you're an in the bag unhinged Obama supporter, you're probably hoping for the plucky reformer to do well. And that will help her.

Some. Well-wishing only gets her so far. She's got to deliver.

But I think she will.


Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities. …

A reader tips me that Geraghty suggested this line yesterday, at a 4 pm post:

If They Insist Upon Calling Her 'Mayor Palin,' Instead of "Governor Palin'...

Dear Sarah,

Please use this line: "Being a mayor is kind of like being a community organizer, except mayors have to get results and are held accountable if they don't."

Thanks,

Jim

Nice, Jim. But Palin's tightened it up nicely.
