Is Sarah Palin The Next Maya Angelou?
A few months back, a Slate writer crafted Sarah Palin’s speeches into poetry. Since it’s Govenor Palin’s last day in office next week, we thought there was no better way to celebrate her departure, er, tremendous service to the great state of Alaska, than with her own poetic words.

Click on for one of her finest pieces, On Good and Evil, which she dictated to Katie Couric during an interview on “CBS News” on September 25, 2008. [Slate] “On Good and Evil”
It is obvious to me
Who the good guys are in this one
And who the bad guys are.
The bad guys are the ones
Who say Israel is a stinking corpse,
And should be wiped off
The face of the earth.
That’s not a good guy.
