Sarah Palin as Next Shakespeare, Part II

The chatter about Sarah Palin's "refudiate" gaffe continues. On Twitter, check out the trending topic #ShakesPalin, which answers the question, what would Palin say if she wrote like Shakespeare all the time? Here are a few of my favorites:
  • Double, double toil and trouble; drill baby drill, and Gulf oil bubble.
  • Something is rotten in the Socialist, over-taxed State of Denmark...and all those other kinky EU countries.
  • But soft, what light from yonder window breaks? It is the East, and I can see Russia from my front porch.
  • Et tu, Bristol?
  • To suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous liberals, or to quit half-term, and by opposing, rake in speaking fees.
  • A moose! A moose! My kingdom for a moose!
  • "It is a tale/Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,/Signifying nothing." Sometimes, you don't need to change a thing.
Today's challenge: Come up with your own 140-character ShakesPalin tweet!


  1. omg these are hillarious!!!!!

  2. I think the Bard would be most embarrassed by this conundrum of a person. Honored by Bryd, Perplexed by Palin

  3. "To Be or Not to Be? Not another "Gotcha" question."

  4. "...a poor maverick who struts and tanks her hour
    with Katie Couric and is heard of for evermore."

  5. I just saw another one I loved: "Get thee to a gunnery."

  6. So will you post something like this when a liberal misspeaks. After all, they do it, too.

  7. Dear Anonymous, we're not mocking her because she misspoke. Everyone does that, me included. No, we're mocking her because she compared herself to Shakespeare. This is *not* a political blog, and I promise that the next time anyone, liberal or conservative, compares himself or herself to Shakespeare, we will mock that person with equal gusto.
