The Next Bushism: Palin's Poetry

Just read an awesome article on Slate that took answers from Sarah Palin's interviews and turned them into poetry. Strangely enough, I think that they work really well in that form. Or at least, they make more sense in writing than watching her fumble and panic. Just as Slate figured that in order to make lemons out of lemonade that they could look forward to four more years of "Bushisms" after he won the election in '04, at least if for some terrible reason Sarah Palin becomes VP we could enjoy more of her lovely political musings.

Here's an example:

"Small Mayors"

You know,
Small mayors,
Mayors of small towns--
Quote, unquote--
They're on the front lines.
