Miss South Carolina’s Answer

“I personally believe that U.S. Americans do so because, um, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps, and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education such as, uh, South Africa and, uh,the Iraq and everywhere such as, and I believe that they should, uh, our education here in the U.S. uh, should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future.”

Another example:

Here’s Palin’s response, after Matt Lauer asked her when she knew the election was lost:

“I had great faith that, you know, perhaps when that voter entered that voting booth and closed that curtain that what would kick in for them was, perhaps, a bold step that would have to be taken in casting a vote for us, but having to put a lot of faith in that commitment we tried to articulate that we were the true change agent that would progress this nation.”

“I have no idea what she said in that thicket of words.”
Timothy Egan Guest Columnist – New York Times
