A valuable lesson on how not to judge

Step 1: Proclaim loudly that you are not judging.
Step 2: Judge.
Step 3: (refrain) Proclaim loudly that you have, not, in fact, judged.

Here, let's obvserve a master:

Sarah Palin on Gay Marriage:
I am, in my own, state, I have voted along with the vast majority of Alaskans who had the opportunity to vote to amend our Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman. I wish on a federal level that that’s where we would go because I don’t support gay marriage. I’m not going to be out there judging individuals, sitting in a seat of judgment telling what they can and can’t do, should and should not do, but I certainly can express my own opinion here and take actions that I believe would be best for traditional marriage and that’s casting my votes and speaking up for traditional marriage that, that instrument that it’s the foundation of our society is that strong family and that’s based on that traditional definition of marriage, so I do support that.

My deepest regrets (to my dear reader(s) and Italians alike) to being forced to wade through that spaghetti prose.
Plus a shout-out to Banksy for the adorable policemen, whom, I'm sure, speak the Queen's Engish, unlike she who shall not be named.

Is, it, actually - possible if I did, to speak like this - or if it's written, because I believe in being really clear? So that's why I will vote to, defend clear thought for others like me - and the family that it's mine to defend.
