In other news, the quote of the day (so far):
"Truly, Sarah Palin has come a long way. When she ran for vice president, she frequently became disjointed and garbled when she departed from her prepared remarks. Now the prepared remarks are incoherent, too."
—Gail Collins, "Sarah's Straight Talk", The New York Times
Edit: More on Palin's speech:
"The style is closer to a high schooler's angry diary entry than to an official speech. I've read a lot of speech transcripts. They tend to have fewer words in all capital letters. And fewer things in quotation marks that aren't actually, you know, quotes."
—Ezra Klein, "Sarah Palin Resigns", The Washington Post
