Beyond the Palin

Talk This Way Last thursday, October 2, 2008, will Wiki down in history as the day that American political discourse, with its historical roots in doubletalk, descended to gibberish thanks to the perky inanities of Sarah Palin.
Will gibberish displace doubletalk the next time around, or will it just have been a way stop of the rhetorical road to skimble skamble?
I don’t think so. With Barack Obama our likely next president, I’m betting that political discourse will gravitate from gibberish to jive.
