Sarah is looking for work. She’s posted her resumé on LinkedIn. Oddly, Sarah omitted any reference to her speaking skills in her resumé. So to help all those prospective employers, here’s the Ex-Gov’s response to Katie Couric’s question to her about the federal bailout package:
That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it’s got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade — we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation.
(Tina Fey’s brilliant impersonation of the VP candidate did not have to change a single word. Fey won an Emmy using Palin’s own words, spoken in Palin’s own cadences. Fey even got the “deer in the headlights” eyes right.)
One last caution to all those prospective employers: she’s been known to quit with little notice.
