Watch: The Beauty Queen And The Bush Doctrine

YouTuber MinorDemon was inspired by vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's performance with Charles Gibson on ABC this week to mashup the flounderings of the former Alaska beauty queen with the flounderings of the onetime South Carolina beauty queen who baffled and entertained audiences across the planet by pushing onward through a contest question that stumped her to mouth now-famous time-killing phrases and odd jumbles of semi-related word-abstractions on "education" and "South Africa" and "maps" and "American people." The performance was an incredible, even if unwitting, commentary on our mediated-era communications. As MinorDemon points out, camera-friendly vice-presidential nominee Palin looks like an advanced version of the confused teenage beauty.

Keep at it South Carolina, your future as an architect of American foreign policy awaits you!
