More Sarah Word Salad.

Still boggled by the presence of Palin on the "10 Best Communicators of 2009" list, I found this doozy of a sound bite, in the transcripts culled here.

O'REILLY: Do you believe that you are smart enough, incisive enough, intellectual enough to handle the most powerful job in the world?

PALIN: I believe that I am because I have common sense. And I have, I believe, the values that are reflective of so many other American values. And I believe that what Americans are seeking is not the elitism, the kind of a spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with some kind of elite Ivy League education and a fact resume that's based on anything but hard work and private sector, free enterprise principles. Americans could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership. I'm not saying that has to be me.

Oooo-kay. Moving right along, I notice that Captain Chesley Sullenberger, who averted a crash by landing his Airbus A320 on the Hudson River last year without loss of life, is #1 on the Best Communicators list.

How strange. Someone who prevented a MASSIVE plane crash and someone who is a MAMMOTH train wreck, on the same list.
