No. It isn't. But Sarah Palin did give her farewell to Alaska speech today. Let's look at some excerpts:
Also my husband and his buddies that want to secede from the Union.
Yes, Denali. The Mountain that soars.
Soaring is flying, right? Just checking.
Until we kick Mother Nature in the shins and start drilling, baby, drilling!
If this is our future, get me Doctor Kervorkian!
a⋅pol⋅o⋅get⋅ics/əˌpɒləˈdʒɛtɪks/ Show Spelled Pronunciation –noun (used with a singular verb) the branch of theology concerned with the defense or proof of Christianity.
aka lies and gibberish
Exerting power to influence? That's a thing, right?
our troops are willing to die for you.
Many a soldier's dying words have been "this one's for you, Frank Rich of the New York Times!"
'Cuz makin' shit up is my bit! You don't see me stealin' yer "dispassionate reporting of the facts" routine, do ya?
so leave his kids alone.
See, if I disguise a jab at the press as concern for someone else's family, it makes me seem kinda noble. Never mind that I have trotted my kids out anywhere there was a camera for the last two years.
And the workers must own the means of production! Power to the people!
They use these delicate, tiny, very talented celebrity starlets, they use Alaska as a fundraising tool for their anti-second amendment causes. Stand strong, and remind them patriots will protect our guaranteed, individual right to bear arms, and by the way, Hollywood needs to know, we eat, therefore we hunt.
Many Alaskans would face starvation if not allowed to shoot wolves from a helicopter!
but nothing, nothing could have succeeded without my right-hand man Kris Perry. She is the sharpest, boldest, hardest-working partner. Kris is my right-hand man and much success is due to Kris.
Oh, was I not supposed to mention that she's a man? Sorry Kris!
Using our Old-Testament-era agricultural techniques, praying that a plague of locusts might not descend upon us.
All of which was developed in the lower 48 and paid for largely by Federal R & D grants.
From each according to his ability to each according to his need!
Now we're a frontier outpost on the periphery of Canada.
Now start drilling! And get my helicopter, I'm gonna go shoot me some wolves!
'Cuz some Siberian motherfuckers might try crossing the Berings Strait, fighting their way through Canada down into Oregon, then across the Great Plains, and next thing ya know, they're attackin' the White House!
I love Alaska far too much to leave her in the hands of a vapid, uninformed political dilettante with delusions of grandeur and a persecution complex.
Vote for me. Palin 2012!
As a mother protects her underaged daughter from getting knocked up by a hillbilly meth-cooker, um, never mind!
Goddammit, can't you media types quit talking about my family!
Not grateful enough to finish out "our" term, but y'know, thanks!
And so on. . . . .
Sarah, we hardly knew ye! Or more to the point, we hardly knew what the fuck ye were talking about!
