    In her last farewell address, which was supposed to be more coherent than her previous farewell speeches, Sarah Palin once again showed the world why she's even more inarticulent than George W. Bush. She blathered on and on in nonsensical phrases that never formed a sentence, or followed a thought pattern that would only make sense to someone on an LSD trip, or a Republican.

    As I listened to it, it suddenly occured to me that I've heard that form of expression before. I performed a quick Google search and confirmed my hunch. Actually this dates back to 1872, but it's the same attempt at thought communication employed by Sarah Palin.

    After the quick read of the Lewis Carroll piece, there is a short explanation of the Palin farewell speech, brought to us by a master thespian, and presented on one of network television's highest rated programs. The displayed link will quickly take you there as Palin's speech is explained and illustrated by a consumate professional.

    Lewis Carroll
    (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

    `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!"

    He took his vorpal sword in hand:
    Long time the manxome foe he sought --
    So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And, as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! And through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    "And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
    He chortled in his joy.

    `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    And now, the explanation of Palin's speech....
