Verbal intercourse

Since I sling verbs, nouns and occasionally adjectives for a living, this piece about Sarah Palin's creative approach to language was interesting to me:

Yet surely, more than most of us, politicians need to be able to think on their feet, to have a brain that works quickly and rationally under pressure. Do we really want to be led by someone who, when asked a straightforward question, flails around like an undergraduate who stayed up all night boozing instead of studying for the exam?

I don't know. Do we?

UPDATE: For the uninitiated, "Verbal Intercourse" is the title of an old-school Raekwon joint featuring Nas and Ghostface. Check it out.
