Marveling at a Sarah Palin Run-on Sentence

We’re talking 105 words. YouTube host David Pakman dubs Sarah Palin the “queen of the word salad, a sous-chef of sorts…” before taking a deep breath and 32 seconds to read one sentence from her recent speech and conversation event with Jerry Falwell Jr. at Liberty University.

Here, according to Pakman, is the sentence:

“If you lose that foundation John Adams was implicitly warning us, then we will not follow our constitution, there will be no reason to follow our constitution, because it is a moral and religious people who understand that there is something greater than self, we are to live selflessly and we are to be held accountable by our creator so that is what our constitution is based on, so those revisionists, those in the lame-stream media especially who would want to ignore what our founders actually thought, felt and wrote about in our charters of liberty, well that’s why I call them the lame-stream media.”

Manson prosecutor, Vincent Bugliosi is disgusted with – wait for it – George Bush. He wrote a book about it. Apparently it’s doing pretty well yet he’s done very little media…blogs and stuff but according to the NY Times story about it – very little media. A hundred radio interviews but other than that – nothing really. Cough.

And Senator Jessie Helms died on July 4th. The same day our second president John Adams, our third president Thomas Jefferson and a whole bunch of over zealous pyros died. He is being remembered fondly by one of our anonymous readers “for his tireless work at building a bridge to the 17th century”.
