sarah-palinVanity Fair’s article about Sarah Palin’s resignation speech was one of the hottest Twitter topics retweeted this past week.  It was posted on July 20th and since then has received 1,769 RT’s. That is unbelievable. Palin really knows how to make a statement whether it is through her fashion, children, interviews or in this case speeches.

As most of you already know, Governor Palin delivered her resignation speech on July 13th. Many were not impressed with the speech she delivered. They felt that it was both written and delivered poorly.  So Vanity Fair asked their executive literary editor, Wayne Lawson, along with help from the research and copy departments to “whip into publishable shape.” Here is the result of their work.

In all honesty, I can probably write a better opening to that speech than she did, and where are her speech writers? Don’t governors or people who are high up in the ranking have those resources? I have a feeling she asked her daughter to look over this.  Click here to see the full speech and editing.
