Original Draft of Sarah Palin’s Hong Kong Speech
Nobody will say exactly how many speechwriters and proofreaders are employed by Sarah Palin’s staff. But here is a copy of Sarah’s first draft of her speech:

This is just so great, this historic meeting of Main Street USA and the Far East. Sort of Joe Sixpack meets, uh, you know, Chow Fu, or whatever your version would be.
