Palin in the lead for the Nikita

This year Ross Mirkarimi has some real competition from Sarah Palin for the Nikita---originated by Herb Caen---awarded to ostensibly English sentences that sound like they're translated from Ukrainian. Palin in her interview with Wolf Blitzer:

Sitting here in these chairs that I’m going to be proposing but in working with these governors who again on the front lines are forced to and it’s our privileged obligation to find solutions to the challenges facing our own states every day being held accountable, not being just one of many just casting votes or voting present every once in a while, we don’t get away with that.
