    This is truly a classic…no better satire than reality!

    Beam me up Jimmy Doohan

  4. Being myself a traditional Western American libertarian-populist, I personally quite a bit to agree with in what Palin actually says (as contrasted with the Tina Fey-caricature “I can see Russia from my house!” mythology that many people have unthinkingly bought into) but she really does use some cringe-worthy phraseology sometimes.

    She needs a better speechwriter.  Or, a speechwriter.

    Brilliant!

    And actually, L, the speech you reference above is NOT the speech that Shatner was reciting. He was reciting the actual farewell speech, not the initial announcement.

    Here’s the speech:
