... then Gov. Palin would surely display more poise and confidence than she did with Katie Couric last night.
How do I know?

Suffer through the young YouTuber’s first minute of witless warm-up. You will be rewarded. This one’s going mega-viral.
Or you can wait for Keith Olbermann to showcase it on “Countdown”... with his own minute of witless warm-up. One way or another, you will watch this.

UPDATE (09/26/08): The bad news: This video has been pulled from YouTube because of a copyright violation.
The good news: The copyright claim was made by Splash News, an international paparazzi agency.
If rights to the 1984 Miss Alaska pageant video are owned by paparazzi, that means the footage will find its way to the marketplace. Especially now that some demand has been ginned up.
UPDATE (09/26/08): As of 4:12 p.m. (Pacific Time), the video can be seen here. Move fast. (Thanks, DRE.)
