Palin’s dream speech, my dream that is

By
September 4, 2008

I went to sleep before Sarah Palin’s speech and had a dream. Why bother staying up past my bedtime when I can dream a better speech? Which speech do you like better?

Good evening my fellow Americans. Thank you for the warm welcome. Uh-Oh, the telepromter is broken.

Long pause, looks up, glazed look.

Ié ieus éó ou éó óua! iiii éééé eeee oo uuuu óóóó aaaaa, really truly éi aaaa óó óó! aee ééé iiii uuuuuu óóóóóóóó, ei o ei eios ei! (credit)1. see footnote below

Seems to come back to reality, pauses again, regains composure.

Ladies and gentleman, this is a sign that I shouldn’t deliver my prepared speech. Instead I will speak from the heart, I will speak the absolute truth about this election and what I now realize is my mission.

Each American voter is on the verge of making a decision that has the most profound implications possible.

Make no mistake about it, my opponents are well meaning people and on many measures are as qualified to be president and vice president and John McCain and I.

Barack Obama and Joe Bidden have lost their way yet they don’t realize it. They mean well but they certainly aren’t the first leaders to be deceived.

We face a worldwide threat that has been foretold.

Voters must think long and hard about who they vote for, and I hope they vote for John McCain. We are in a time of extraordinary tribulation as foretold, and all these things foretold are coming upon us.

Please be obedient to your inner voice on election day; it will not forsake you, neither destroy you.

For ask now that the days of Democrat control are past. Ask whether there has been any such thing as this great man named John McCain, or have heard words like his?

I ask you to go and take our party from the midst of Democrat lies, from temptations, and by signs, and by wonders, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, according to all that your inner voice tells you.

I implore you to hear this voice, that it might instruct you, and believe and trust John McCain, before great fire and brimstone destroy Democrat baby killers, destroy all Democrat sinners, which is foretold, and thou hear these words from your most humble servant Sarah Palin . 2. see footnote

Vote McCain, vote McCain, vote McCain…

Audience takes up chant. Many begin to speak in tongues. Half the audience falls to floor writhing or jerking about, many pass out.

Fade to black. Utter silence.

Television commentators for once are speechless.


What did I really think of the speech? Based on the portions I’ve heard so far, Don Rickles on steriods. If she’s a pit bull with lipstick I think she insults pit bulls. She was sarcastic, mean, insulting and self-aggrandizing.

To think that some critics used the b-word to describe Hillary.


1. Palin used to belong to a church where many parishioners speak in tongues. This column is not meant to insult or disparage anyone’s religion or religious beliefs. However, some of the quotes coming out about Palin’s opinions suggest strongly that she believes she is on a mission from God. I can accept her saying our soldiers are carrying out God’s will, but promoting a $30-billion natural gas pipeline project by stating “God’s will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built” is carrying it too far.

Her own words have opened the door to such satire.

    Hal, you missed very little. At least of substance.

    McCain longs to fulfill his father’s and other relative’s proud military tradition, at least I think he does. No one knows what’s an act, or what he really feels. Palin thinks US destiny is to bring “God” to the world, and she isn’t acting. Probably her real views are more extreme than she states.

    She is going to be no big business puppet if she becomes President, but will try to remake the world in what she sees as God’s images. She several times clearly implied that she speaks for God.

    I think developing children should have some sort of independent rights separate from their mother’s and that society should go slow when it comes to basic change such as gay rights. But that doesn’t mean that I want Palin or bin Laden to try to bring what they consider God’s glory to this planet.

    I think children are precious and believe I made a mistake by not having any, but don’t feel guilty about not having five children with more to come, or that children are God’s gift to the planet, and definitely don’t appreciate sacrificing them and each other in God’s name.

    Hal you were not dreaming, What you witnessed was our national nightmare, eyes closed or open,
    it’s not soon to pass.

    The crusader mentality is a monster of such grand proportion that our little blue orb can no longer contain it and the fools that foist the cross or allah on humanity put every freedom lover at risk.

    Pop always said it’s a good book (Bible) of rules, but when they tell you that God speaks to them or that they speak for God, make sure your powder is dry and your aim is true.
    And for goodness sake look after your children.
