Sarah Palin Included In The Top Ten "Quotable One Liners" In the "History of the World".

The University of New Orleans published an article "A History Of The World — In One-Liners"
 which appeared on their 89.9 New Orleans radio station.

The article noted that in Palin's recent  address to the "Faith and Freedom Conference" she "let loose a barrage of bons mots aimed at President Obama and political Washington."

The article's author, Linton Weeks then went on to advise that in the modern world the "one liner" is a strong tool in debate (he gives an example of how to counter it in the desire for ongoing dialogue). 

Weeks ascribes to Palin a strong expertise in the technique, and then lists a "top ten" of notable one liners from such outstanding speakers and historical characters as Plato, JFK. MLK and Benjamin Franklin. Strong company indeed for Palin and a tribute to her rhetorical skills.

Palin's apparently immortal "one liner" is at THIS LINK-see if you can guess which one of her many outstanding remarks it is!
