Sarah Palin's Debate Flowchart and Bafflegab

I found this terrific flow chart depicting Gov. Palin's debate response methodology:

And, just in case that weren't enough fun, I was also directed to a word that describes, quite well, her method of answering questions: Bafflegab. What is bafflegab, you ask? Well, I could describe it as the type of answers that we heard Gov. Palin give Katie Couric. Or I could give the true definition of the word:

Multiloquence characterized by consummate interfusion of circumlocution or periphrasis, inscrutability, and other familiar manifestations of abstruse expatiation commonly utilized for promulgations implementing Procrustean determinations by governmental bodies.

Next time you get confused listening to Gov. Palin, just think to yourself that you, unlike many others, can put a word to her speech patterns. How lucky.
