A Fond Farewell to Sarah Palin

A Fond Farewell to Sarah Palin

In her final speech as governor, Sarah Palin criticizes the media, denounces Hollywood and makes veiled Ashley Judd references.


The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart bids goodbye to the “Thrilla from Wasilla,” now former governor Sarah Palin, with a special report from Alaska by correspondent Jason Jones. Stewart ridicules Palin’s farewell speech, particularly her use of “the troops” to tell the media to “quit makin’ things up” and Jones, on site for her speech, interviews Palin supporters who reiterate that their governor is not a quitter. As usual, Stewart and Jones get in a few good jibes at the mainstream media, with Jones using Palin’s complaints to tell reporters covering the speech to “leave Sarah alone!”
