And also, Hodor
We believe—wait, I thought, fast food joints? Eh, don't you guys think that ... they're like of the devil, or something? That's what ... liberals ... you wanna send those evil employees who dare work at a fast food joint that you just don't believe in, thought you wanted to, I don't know, send them to purgatory, or something ... so they all go vegan ... and uh ... wages and picket lines, I don't know, they're not often discussed in purgatory, are they?

I don't know, why're you even worried about ... fast food wages, because ...

Well, we believe ... an America where minimum wage jobs, they're not lifetime gigs! They're stepping stones!

    —Sarah Palin

Is this, like, the outtakes of something? Or is all of Sarah Palin's new "channel" like this? Wayne's World had better production values. You can hear more coherent political commentary on 3 AM cable access shows, things like The World According to Mah Shoe That Tells Prophecies or Bob's Drinking Buddy's Grandpa is Making Sense. This is what Fox News would look like if all the anchors were coming down from an all-weekend bender and Stephen Colbert had stolen all their coffee machines. This is a behind-the-scenes look at the Disney imagineers first attempt to come up with a Sarah Palin robot for the Hall of Thank God They're Not Presidents and after the test they all just sit staring silently at it wondering how to patch this mess up enough to make sure it at least won't blow out the hydraulics and send an arm flying into the audience one day.

And what's with the crazy eye shifts? Is she keeping a wary eye on an off-camera swarm of bees? "Just ignore the bees, Sarah, we've tried everything and can't get rid of them. You're on in 5, 4, 3..."

That all this is being framed as an apparent rebuttal to an Elizabeth Warren speech makes it all the more zen.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
