Emphatic pauses can be a powerful speechcraft tool when used sparingly, but this 'Palin’s Breath' video parodies the famous former Alaskan governor by joining all of her pauses from a single speech into one continuous clip.

The clip is both bizarre and creepy simultaneously, made entirely out of footage from Sarah Palin’s reaction to the criticism levied against her following the tragic shootings in Arizona. Given her enormous popularity as both a beloved and scorned public figure, it is no surprise that this 'Palin’s Breath' video has gone on to be so viral and so pervasive in such a short time.

Love her or hate her, nothing related to Palin can be easily ignored. Stats for Politician Breathing Virals Trending: Older & Mild
