William Shatner Turns Sarah Palin Into PoetryAnna North7/28/09 12:20pmFiled to: Wordsmith of wasillasarah palinWilliam ShatnerPoetry22EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Tired of making fun of Sarah Palin? Us neither. Watch William Shatner give a poetic reading of her farewell speech, and, after the jump, a mashup of Palin and a possible 2012 competitor. We don't think this second video is as funny as the first — partly because it doesn't involve William Shatner, but also because unlike this poor woman whose 15 seconds of sorta-fame include her talking about slavery on East Coast, Sarah Palin isn't actually crazy. She's just ignorant and incurious, which is maybe scarier. Can't we draft William Shatner to run for President in 2012 instead? Sadly, no, because unlike Barack Obama, he was born outside the US.
