Sarah’s grammar

I’m always struggling to decide how to treat the Sarah subject on this blog. Anyone reading this can guess my leanings but I try to steer clear of outright political rants (as tempting as a rant would be) in favor of approaching candidates from a literary perspective. Thank you, Slate, for providing an acceptable angle in your hilarious — and quite serious — story today about diagramming Sarah’s sentences.

Do you remember your sentence-diagramming days? Could you diagram this actual sentence spoken by Sarah Palin during the Charles Gibson interview?

“I know that John McCain will do that and I, as his vice president, families we are blessed with that vote of the American people and are elected to serve and are sworn in on January 20, that will be our top priority is to defend the American people.”

Good luck!
