Palin’s Resignation: The Edited Version

If you watched Sarah Palin’s resignation speech, you know one thing: her high-priced speechwriters moved back to the Beltway long ago. Just how poorly constructed was the governor’s holiday-weekend address? We asked V.F.’s red-pencil-wielding executive literary editor, Wayne Lawson, together with representatives from the research and copy departments, to whip it into publishable shape. Here is the colorful result.

How hilarious.

A magazine which is simply a slicked up comic book graphic novel for sub-literates with pretensions has the nerve to take a red pencil to an unscripted and un-teleprompted announcement by Sarah Palin.

It’s almost as if they have a thing about her. (How soon before they hire Mrs. Palin’s number one stalker, Andree McLeod as a writer?)

Still, maybe Vanity Fair should stick to what they do best, glamorizing pretend spies and other fantasists.

They should leave politics to the grown ups.

(Thanks to BillK for the heads up.)

    You can imagine the uproar were someone to do this to Clinton’s speeches, let alone His.

    Ah, but let them have their fun and pretend to matter… to someone.

    Meanwhile they can get back to their other important stories like Exclusive: How the Last Shot of Michael Jackson Happened and Heath Ledger’s Last Days.

    Now I know where the rats at the NY Slimes who have jumped ship are heading.

    For a group that peddles a Vanity Fair, they should probably just keep their sheet at home. A vanity fair??? … for all the vain folks???

    Actually, I’m finding this stuff amusing. That’s when you know she has won. Anytime they can’t find something of substance to criticize they have to resort to these petty personal attacks.

    Believe me, if there was something they could really hit her on they would drop the petty “red pen” junk and go after that. This is the best they can come up with.

    Go Sarah!

  5. Reality Bytes says:

    Oil Distribution Logistics & Environmental Stewardship: 2 of the most important issues in America today. When Palin comes down to the lower 48 she will crush the media with her expertise in both. Who knows, “Broad” may become a popular word again; just for Sarah.

    “Back at Cha!” ;-)

    How rich! Critisizing Sarah with their guy TOTUS in office.

    Brass ones, I tell you.

  7. Rusty Shackleford says:

    They must really fear her.

  8. Laree says:

    I don’t see their point, in the above exercise, they think they English school marms? Okay.

    • David says:

      What is said is they didn’t even consider that this was a speech! Some of their edits that *might* be reasonable for print would make her sound like a robot on the podium. With no regard to her audience and several edits specifically designed to remove the value of our country it is clear Vanity’s intent. They realize that Sarah is far more popular than they are and are slobbering over the scraps of her popular attention. PATHETIC!

    Vainglorious, perhaps…

    Vanity Fair…sounds familure. I don’t recall ever having seen/read it. Could someone help me out here. What is this Vanity Fair? I choose not to put such garbage into my brain. Garbage in, garbage out.

  11. I would like to see them do this to one of Obama’s “off the cuff” speeches. They would need new red pens after they’ve put x’s through all the “oh’s” and “um’s” he spouts out.

  12. gahanson says:

    When you’re reduced to using a red pen on someone speech, complaining about their choice of toenail polish, even discussing her toes, her hair, etc., you have reached the bottom of the barrel.

    One HuffPo writer, Shannyn Moore, is now reduced to following Palin around taking pictures of her legs and ranting about her skirts being too short. Moore even spread the lie that people at a Memorial Day service turned their backs to her because they were shocked at her brazen display of her – wait for it – knees. Naturally, this was a big lie, but Moore was out there peddling it.

    Just last week Palin’s op/ed about cap and trade drew the fire of John Kerry, and then moveon.org announced that they were raising money to run ads countering her op/ed. So far, no ads as far as I know. Maybe they thought better of the idea since most people are opposed to cap and trade, and their ad would only let the majority of people know that Palin was on their side.

    Palin’s opponents have nothing but hatred and jealousy to keep them going, nothing more.

  13. Georgfelis says:

    I can understand how the editors at Vain-ity might want to edit her speech to match the way they see the world, I’ve given into that temptation once myself for one of the President’s publicity appearances (sometimes called “press conferences”).

    After all, Palin spoke for quite a long time without a teleprompter, saying what was honestly on her mind. In Vanity’s world, that makes her too dumb to hold public office. In our world, that means something quite different.

  14. AmericanIPA says:

    Every slimy and juvenile attack on Palin that our useless media exhibits simply reinforces for me how perfect a leader for the conservative movement she really is. I think the “big tent” needs to start being more inviting to those who erected the tent in the first place. The Colin Powells and John McCains of DC can find their own niche. And I’m sure it won’t take long for them to move to the more fitting party anyway.
