Palin's Interview: "Somebody Like Me, is a Title and a Campaign Too Shackling?"

Thank you, Gawker, for pointing us to this video that, as Jim Newell notes, may go down in the annals of Palin interview history--which indeed is a rich, rich category to enter.

The transcript reads like a randomly stitched-together quilt of Palinisms, and includes the tidbit that she seems to think that the presidency is merely a "title" that may not be worth it:

"Someone like me who's a maverick? I do go rogue and I call it like I see it and I don't mind stirring it up in order to get people to think and debate aggressively to find solutions to the problems that our country is facing... Somebody like me, is a title and a campaign too shackling? Does that prohibit me from being out there and out of a box, not allowing handlers to shape me and to force my message to be what's going on, or what contributors or political pundits want it to be?"

Watch below (9 minutes and onward).
