Sarah Palin rambled on incoherently in what was described as "one incredibly long run-on sentence" at Steve King's wingnut fest, otherwise known as the Iowa Freedom Summit this weekend.

Charles Johnson summed up Sarah Palin's long rambling speech quite well here: Sarah Palin’s Bizarre Disconnected Word Salad at the Iowa Freedom Freakout, Complete:

Palin delivers an entire speech in one incredibly long run-on sentence.

Even by Sarah Palin’s already low standards, this speech is extraordinarily incoherent and scattered. I’ve seen a lot of her speeches (do not pity me, it is my job), and I can’t remember a more garbled, deeply weird performance from Caribou Barbie.

He's got the entire painful 20 minutes posted if you're in the mood to torture yourself. Here's more from The Daily Mail: Sarah Palin 'rambles incoherently' after teleprompter freezes, leaving the GOP crowd baffled and Democrats saying 'Thank You'... a day after she declared an interest in 2016 run:

Republican firebrand Sarah Palin is rarely at a loss for words but became unmoored on Saturday in Iowa after her teleprompter froze and left her without portions of her prepared speech.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee flipped through a binder of notes and strung together a series of one-liners – and some of them made little sense.

'The man can only ride you when your back is bent,' she said, as audience members looked at each other quizzically.

'So strengthen it! Then the man can't ride you, America won't get taken for a ride, because so much is at stake.'

Addressing the controversy over the virtues of the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and the 'American Sniper' film that tells his life story, she shouted: “Screw the left in Hollywood!'

And she carped about Democrats' view of Obamacare.

'What will they do to stop causing our pain, and start feeling it again? Well, in other words, um – Is Hillary a New Democrat or an old one?'

'Now the press asks, the press asks, "Can anyone stop Hillary?" Again, this is to forego a conclusion, right? It's to scare us off, to convince us that – a pantsuit can crush patriots?'

It doesn't get any better from there. They've got more quotes from Griftie McWord-Salad if you want to go read the rest.

Raw Story has more with some of the reactions on Twitter to her speech here: Sarah Palin delivers ‘bizarro’ speech to Iowa Freedom Summit and Twitter users react hilariously.

I want to know when the media is going to quit taking her seriously when she says she's open to running for president, because she made it painfully obvious again this weekend that she's not.
