I promise, this is my last post on the US election till the next one, but I just had to give you a chance to look at this transcript of Sarah Palin, possibly the next vice president of the United States of America, speaking on one of the administration’s major foreign policy topics – The Iraq war.  As far as rhetorical skill goes, she seems a good match for McCain…

“The GOP agenda to ramp up domestic supplies of energy is the only way we’re going to become energy independent– the only way we’re going to become a more secure nation, and I say this of course because looking at the situation we’re in right now, at war, not knowing what the plan is to ever end the war that we’re engaged in. Understanding that Americans are seeking solutions and are seeking resolution in this war effort so energy supplies being able to produce and supply domestically, is gonna be a big part of that. And I have a 19-year old who is ready to be deployed to Iraq. His striker brigade will leave on Sept. 11 of this year, he’s 19. He’ll be gone for a year and kind of a personal level when I talk about um the plan for the war. Let’s make sure we have a plan for the war, and respecting McCain’s position on that”
