When Sarah Palin speaks, my head explodes

October 2, 2008

Ever since she burst onto the scene, I’ve considered using ear plugs. Her droppin’ of the ‘g’ three times every “sentence” was enough, but the Couric interview made me feel as though English was my second language. This person could very well be vice president — so it must be me.

The fact that I’m forced to use conversational context to decipher her responses — and that I’m failing — must be at least similar to what an immigrant, with limited English, feels at the DMV.

I urge you to watch the debate tonight with the closed captioning on (Go grab the manual now so you know how to turn it on at 9PM EDT). I hope they use humans to do it — I predict they’ll give up.
