Sarah Palin recently gave a very special resignation speech as she stepped down from her role as govenor of Alaska, proving yet again that she really is the Lil C of the political world. I, for one, will miss her nonsensical ramblings -- but only her nonsensical ramblings.

"Master thespian" William Shatner appeared on the Conan O'Brian show to respond by reading verbatim excerpts from the speech, beat poet style. Leave it to the former Captain Kirk to reinterpret her words in the way they were clearly meant to be performed -- with a stand-up bass and the soft patter of the bongo behind them.

Enjoy, after the jump.
