Betty on the News: Sarah Palin’s VP Concession Speech Released
The former VP candidate’s undelivered concession speech is revealed in a new book.

Former Alaska governor and Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin was prevented from having her say after she and Senator John McCain lost last year’s presidential election. Thanks to a new book, Sarah From Alaska, you can see for yourself what Sarah Barracuda had hoped to share one year ago!
Her speech that never was is true to Sarah’s style – folksy and fun, with a few digs to make it spicy.
On the election:
“It would be a happier night if elections were a test of valor and merit alone, but that is not for us to question now.”
“I will remember all the people who said they were praying for me – you prayer warriors have been my strength and my shield.”
On the upside of losing:
“I told my husband Todd to look at the upside: Now, at least, he can clear his schedule, and get ready for championship title number five in the Iron Dog snow machine race!”
On President Barack Obama:
“If [Obama] governs America with the skill and grace we have often seen in him, and the greatness of which he is capable, we’re gonna be just fine.”
Speaking of books and Sarah Palin, Meghan McCain is working on her own memoir, and she hinted on Twitter last night that she’s finally planning to dish on her dad’s running mate in the book.
