Oh, Sarah Palin...

Sarah Palin: the comedic gift that just keeps on giving. Even her resignation speech turned out to be unintentionally -- one assumes -- hilarious. And chock-full of grammatical and factual errors.

Vanity Fair set its editors on her speech and tore it up by correcting poor grammar, an abundance of copy errors and, most horrifyingly, numerous factual errors, including some that a simple Internet search would reveal. 

I just Googled "president Alaska purchase" and the first hit, 0.27 seconds later, reveals that it was President Andrew Johnson who authorized the acquisition. You don't even need to click the link!

Whether you're a passionate logophile whose Bible is Eats, Shoots & Leaves, or just a stickler for accuracy, this is worth checking out.  (credit to Lauren, who blogged about it first)

And if you need any more Palin-bashing to make your hump day more enjoyable, I finally got around to reading Todd Purdum's damning VF profile of the former governor. All I can say: Wow. And to think she was only 8 million votes and a heart attack away from being President of the United States.
