Palin Resigns

Here’s the transcript to her truly painful speech. It’s peppered with motivational poster tropes like:

Life is all about choices!

Only dead fish go with the flow.

Gotta put first things first!

She quotes twice: First, a statement from Oliver Smith, which she incorrectly attributes to Macarthur. Secondly, a truly horrible refrigerator magnet of her parents which conveniently exonerates her from ever giving a reason for anything she ever does ever again:

Don’t explain; your friends don’t need it, and your enemies won’t believe you anyway.

Or, you know, you could point out something your enemies/neurtral parties missed, or correct a misunderstanding on their part, or bolster your own side’s opinion with better-crafted arguements. Yeesh.
