Palin’s Poetry Interpreted by the Priceline Negotiator

Posted 07.30.2009

It’s the end of July and I’m on vacation so let’s have a little fun today. Let me start out by saying that I love William Shatner. He was great as Captain James T. Kirk, hilarious as Denny Crane of Boston Legal and I never get tired of his Priceline Negotiator bits. The man completely knows how to walk the razor’s edge between maintaining his dignity and making a complete fool of himself. That takes a lot of self awareness.

Over the past couple of weeks, he’s shown up on Conan O’Brien’s Tonight Show to offer interpretative poetic readings of Sarah Palin’s resignation speech as Governor of Alaska and, last night, to read verbatim selections from her Tweets. So, ladies and gentlemen, for your listening and viewing pleasure, Mr. William Shatner:

Priceless, no?  Now you’re negotiating!
