Sarah Palin & “Also”October 9, 2008
I sat down for another wonderful night of watching TV before bed, and somewhere in between Anderson Cooper and the hockey game I had a revelation: Sarah Palin says “also”, like…a lot.
So, just to make sure I wasn’t crazy, I decided do a quick search to see if I was the only one who’d noticed this. Well, sure enough, some ambitious netizen with a little too much time on his/her hands put together a little montage:
Ya know Sarah, it’s OK to insert a few “as well”‘s and “too”‘s in there every once and awhile. Wow. But, hey, this is just a edit hack-job, right?
Let’s take a look at the transcript from her debate with Biden. Then, hit CTRL+F, and search for the word.

In fact, it didn’t take long for Palin to kick it in:
PALIN: Thank you, Gwen. And I thank the commission, also. I appreciate this privilege of being able to be here and speak with Americans.
Now there’s your drinking game! It would have been a veritable flurry of shots. But on the other hand, everyone would have been passed out 10 min. into the debate…also.
