The problem with Palin’s delivery isn’t the content, but with her inability to stick to the correct meter and rhythms that would allow her words to sparkle and shine. Here, Slate corrects her rushed delivery, and affords us all a glimpse into the brilliant mind that is Palin the Poet:

“You Can’t Blink”

You can’t blink.
You have to be wired
In a way of being
So committed to the mission,

The mission that we’re on,
Reform of this country,
And victory in the war,
You can’t blink.

So I didn’t blink.
