What if Sarah Palin’s Resignation Speech Had Been Written Professionally?

(www.inkthinkerblog.com) — I’ve been working under the assumption here that Palin’s recent resignation speech from her post as governor of Alaska wasn’t written by a pro. If you’ve heard it, you understand why. But Vanity Fair took it a step further when they actually edited the speech for us.

And the result is fairly hilarious. See the edited version of Palin’s resignation for yourself.

What do you think? Is this version better, worse, or about the same?

    Amazing what an editor can do to such awful writing. Still, not a great speech though. I honestly believe a few hundred chimps at typewriters could write better than Palin…and I’d prefer to vote for the chimps.

    I can see why your job is in such high demand! Every correction here made a lot of sense, but I just couldn’t bare to look through the whole thing. I just became infinitely more thankful that people like Kristen King exist! People look at me troubleshooting a single missing character in code that is causing a website not to do the desired thing, and think I’m crazy. I feel the same way for people who edit other people’s bad English. But the world is a lot better off with crazy people to help us!

    What would we do without people like Sarah Palin to add a bit of amusement and unintentional humor to the world?
