Sarah Palin: Word!

An interesting language-related critique of Palin is here, and reminded me of the appeal of a good sentence diagram. Sorta wish I'd paid more attention to that unit on diagramming sentences in 8th grade. (And I should probably admit that, as I move into my second year of flailing about with the German language, it might have actually come in handy.)

I initially assumed this article, "The Poetry of Sarah Palin," was a pointed jab at Palin's stunning and near-constant inarticulateness, but after reading it I'm convinced. Sarah Palin is a poet.*

*Both will require that you sign into Slate.com. Sorry!
