Palin’s phonetic speech

I’m all for phonetic spelling, but a vice-presidential candidate shouldn’t need it. The Toronto Star printed the transcript of Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech, just as it was prepared for delivery. Hidden deep inside it was this little gem:

Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines … build more new-clear plants

and again:

Terrorist states are seeking new-clear weapons without delay … he wants to meet them without preconditions.

It’s clear that the speech writers didn’t trust her to pronounce “nuclear.”

She also can’t seem to tell a precondition from preparation.
