    Not an issue with it, I'm just wondering if it's because I referenced her sig or what?

    Anyhow, the score is not interesting. You write for your audience and for your purpose. The score means very little. This is why an appropriate acceptance speech could be on a lower field than a State of the Union address. The State of the Union address could have been far more complex (although adding citations seems to drop score for our little test), but that would not be appropriate for its purpose, and thus its audience.

    The entire story about the score, my own personal results, etc. mean little to me other than the fact that for a few days it will have people convinced this is what matters.

    AOL Weird News brought samples to two writing analysts who independently evaluated 24,000 pages of the former governor’s emails. They came back in agreement that Palin composed her messages at an eighth-grade level, an excellent score for a chief executive, they said.

    “I’m a centrist Democrat, and would have loved to support my hunch that Ms. Palin is illiterate,” said 2tor Chief Executive Officer John Katzman.

    “However, the emails say something else. Ms. Palin writes emails on her Blackberry at a grade level of 8.5.

    “If she were a student and showing me her work, I‘d say ’It’s fine, clear writing,’” he said, admitting that emails he wrote scored lower than Palin’s on the widely used Flesch-Kincaid readability test.

    While some would initially scoff or laugh at Palin’s grade-level assessment, past speakers and writers of note have scored comparably. Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was a 9.1 and Martin Luther King’s famed “I have a Dream” came in at 8.8. Remember, Palin’s results were based on e-mails, not riveting speeches, so the fact that they score remotely close to the aforementioned works is intriguing .

    Overall, this is good news for Palin, as her writing was found to be better than some CEOs’. The New York Daily News sheds further light on her abilities:

    It turns out Palin’s writing skills are still better than most educated Americans. Global Language Monitor gave Palin’s emails a score of 8.2, which actually exceeds that of most chief executives.

    “She’s very concise. She gives clear orders. Her sentences and punctuations are logical,” said Paul Payack, president of Global Language Monitor. “She has much more of a disciplined mind than she’s given credit for.”

    That's a good question. The only possible explanation I can come up with is it's because she's so bizarre...kind of a cross between a stereotypical dumb blond and Hitler. You don't see that combination every day...fortunately.

    But seriously, I'm glad they got something important from Palin's emails.
