After Sarah Palin’s rambling and at timesborderline-incoherent address at the Iowa Freedom Summit this weekend, a Morning Joepanel declared her downfall from her 2008 height a “tragedy,” and generally spoke about her as if she were Lenny from Of Mice and Men.
After Washington Examiner commentator Byron York diagnosed the GOP’s “Palin problem,”Nicolle Wallace, famously Palin’s initial handler on the McCain campaign and the first to sound the alarm bells about the questionable running mate, said that York had once been one of Palin’s biggest pushers.
“I remember being on the cell phone with him, he was one of the harshest critics of the campaign’s handling her,” Wallace said. “He really thought the problem was in the packaging of Palin. To see him come full circle — I mean, this is who she is. This is evidence to me that she has finally shed those annoying handlers.”

When Mark Halperin was asked what was the reaction to Palin’s speech at the summit. He answered, “confusion.”
These people really had no idea of what Palin was saying.
“It’s a tragedy,” Scarborough said. “We all remember that night she spoke in 2008 at the convention. I will say, it remains one of the most electrifying performances I’ve seen in the last four or five conventions I’ve been to. Nobody expected her to do well. She delivered the lines well, hit it out of the park. We will let history decide how she gets from that point to this point.”
“It’s time,” Mika Brzezinski concluded.
Update: Bob Cesca at The Daily Banter eviscerates the speech…
During her speech this weekend at Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) Iowa Freedom Summit, Sarah Palin’s teleprompter allegedly malfunctioned. Consequently, she delivered possibly the most incoherent, word-salady speech of her political career. However, I wouldn’t be shocked to learn that the prompters worked just fine all along and, instead, Palin was simply de-evolving to a proto-hominid subspecies right before our eyes. Seriously, I’ve sat through quite a few Palin videos and, under normal circumstances, they’re usually composed of patriotic Mad Libs combined with what can be generously defined as wholesale gibberish, but this one was off-the-charts weird. Without a prompter, it was as if an entire galaxy of stupid collapsed upon itself, coalescing into an inescapable singularity of gobbledygook out of which not even light can escape.
As a public service, I’ve assembled here a selection of the most incomprehensible moments from the speech so as to provide evidence that not only would she be a fantastic candidate in the forthcoming Republican presidential primaries, but that she might also be suffering from either Syphilitic dementia or brain worms.

He goes through the entire speech. It is a classic.
