Thanks to this diary by Leslie Salzillo, I watched the beginning of Sarah Palin's speech to the Western Conservative Summit in Denver. I didn't get very far because something she said was so stupid that I had to go back and listen to it twice. Here's the transcript:

So the President was here last week too, huh?... No time to visit the border but time to shoot some pool, wet his whistle, and grin real big for those icky photo ops that he just really, really hates. And he raked in big bucks at big parties with fat cats... This in a border state, he was.
If you were expecting a longer transcript, I am not a masochist. You can watch it yourself below the fold if you are.

I know that a lot of people don't realize that New Mexico is a state but not all of them received nearly 60 million votes to be Vice President of the United States. All fifty of them.

In a borderline state, she is.

The relevant portion is about 5:03-5:45.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
