Quote of the Day: How Does John Kerry Even Know Sarah Palin's Name?

| Fri Sep. 7, 2012 11:47 AM EDT

From Sarah Palin, responding to a jab from John Kerry at the Democratic National Convention last night:

I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name. How does he even know my name? I mean aren’t these guys supposed to be these big wig elites who don’t waste their time on the little people like me — me representing the average American who, yeah I did say in Alaska you can see Russia from our land base and I was making the point that we are strategically located on the globe and when it comes to transportation corridors and resources that are shared and fought over [in] Alaska and I as the governor had known what I was doing in dealing with some international issues that had to do with our resources that could help secure the nation.

Sorry. I couldn't resist. This is just such vintage Palin. Word salad? Check. Palin as victim? Check. Average American? Check. Resentment of those highfalutin elites? Check. It's all there.
