Sarah Palin’s Word Salad

Sarah Palin is on a media tour to promote her silly book about a nonexistent "War on Christmas," and appeared on the Today show with a tasty new right wing word salad, achieving (not for the first time) total incoherence:

The plan is to allow those things that had been proposed over many years to reform a health-care system in America that certainly does need more help so that there's more competition, there's less tort reform threat, there's less, um, trajectory of the cost increases, and those plans have been proposed over and over again. And what thwarts those plans, it's the far left, it's President Obama and his supporters who will not allow the Republicans to usher in free market, patient-centered, doctor patient relationship links to reform health care.


Uh, you know, when you stand in the middle of the road you're gonna get hit on both sides of the road. We need to take a stand especially on this Obamacare, and support those who are just fulfilling their campaign promises, SO many politicians ran for reelection and for election saying they will do anything in their power to defund the status [sic] socialized medicine program called Obamacare. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, some of these guys actually were fulfilling their campaign promises and they asked for debate. That's why they stood up, they took the stand, fought for us, to debate the issue of Obamacare.
