No one does hilarity like Shatner

Watch this before YouTube takes it down:

It's like Phil Rizzuto on batshit crazy pills.

The best comment on the former governor of Alaska, and the fantasy object of conservative men everywhere, comes from Gawker:
It's like Peggy Noonan, Jack London, and William Faulkner wandered into the woods with three buttons of peyote and one typewriter, and only this speech emerged.

And she wrote this speech! In advance, on paper! What does any of it mean? It is amazing. Twenty years ago she could competently descibe a dog race, three years ago she could articulate a position on the abortion issue, and this weekend she composed a resignation speech by throwing culture war stock phrases into a hat and dumping it upside down on a copy of The Paranoid Style in American Politics.

Or maybe she, like many of us speculated about George W. Bush, has Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome.

(UPDATE: Embed changed because sure enough, YouTube took the other one down.)

Having Shatner recite those lines as a poem was BRILLIANT, Absolutely BRILLIANT. And he's the perfect actor to do it. Also.

I agree that we have to keep an eye on what Palin does. We can't underestimate her or her backers and followers (, two different groups of people with different agendas, I think).

Too late for now. But the video (& audio) won't be permanently suppressed.

Jerked off by Youtube already. Copyright infringement over Shatner piece. What have we come to as a nation?
