You said it well, as to delivery “shrill and disjointed”. The only word I could think of was “hysterical”, which was not an accurate descriptor.
I really wish it were not so, but it is. She’s like a restless colt, loudly kicking out the back of their stall. Wanting to escape confinement. Many times during this election cycle, that is how Sarah has presented herself.
The term ‘word salad’ does apply, and too often to put her in the VP slot. Besides, ‘always a bridesmaid, and never a bride?’. She may consider a second run as someone’s 2nd Banana a lateral promotion, vs vertical. Sort of anticlimatic for someone as ambitious as she.
Way back in 2008 I described Sarah’s speaking voice as sounding like “Minney Mouse on helium”. I understand exactly where both of you are coming from on this issue.
She started taking voice lessons but quit and it was when, I suspect, she decided not to run for office again. Now she has been quiet in public for a while.
We shall see what happens. I would not be surprised when she reappears it is with a very fashionable wardrobe, much improved and a great speaking voice.
