I figured we needed to save the highlights of the Sarah Palin comedy year here on m-pyre, those moments that have really sent us collectively over the edge into flabbergasty. Yes, that's a word. It may be a touch uncharitable, but on the other hand...this is the woman who McCain thought could be president. It pretty much boggles the mind.
I would love to hear a defense of this kind of delivery, keeping in mind that this is the person McCain wanted to have in the wings, ready to represent us on the world stage.
This is probably my all time favorite Palin clip. She did a staged press event where she "pardoned a Thanksgiving turkey" and then gave a bizarre interview in front of turkeys being slaughtered around back. It was November 20...and many of us thought it was all over.
In the interest of space, and not burying Mikaela's stellar blogs by a kazallion clips, here's a greatest hits put together by Talking Points Memo. Granted, this is an edited montage with a clear editorial bias (they felt they needed to tell us how to feel at the beginning--which for the life of me I can't understand the need for), but on the other hand it has some real golden moments that we all will want to remember.
