Sarah Palin officially ceded power this weekend to Lt. Governor Sean Parnell. She will write a book and probably be on Hannity twice a month. Her speech was typical Palin, in that it was both rambling and incoherent. She mentioned rivers being carved and blooming fireweed. We here at MuckBreaker would have liked her to use a few more vapid sports metaphors, but we'll take what we can get. Palin also took the opportunity to take some parting shots at the media. Maybe the most notable remark being, "How about, in honor of the American soldier, you quit makin' things up?"
As a wonky blog, that is in no way an official member of the media, we here at MuckBreaker would just like to say, "Oh shut the fuck up, Sarah Palin!" The troops aren't fighting to keep stories of your pregnant daughter out of the press. They are fighting because Bush and Cheney were "makin' things up." Can you say an accurate thing once? You can't just open your mouth and let words fall out, and get away with it by invoking mob mentality, employing catch-phraserey, and winking a ton..... Oh no wait. Yeah, you totally can do that. After all, this is America. For a moment there, we almost forgot.
