Well, I'm not sure what to say other than it was a typical Sarah speech. Shooting off her shotgun of blame so it scatters everywhere, whining and saying she isn't, and just the pot shots at President Obama, along with calling it the "lamestream media" shows just how immature she is emotionally.
It is amazing people continue to pay to hear this. Listen to one speech, read her book and you will never need to pay to hear another word she says because it will always be a variation on the exact same things.
