Two Nations Separated by a Common Language

Andrew Sullivan linked to this clip as a humorous commentary of Sarah Palin's propensity to... er... fib. But I don't get the impression that Sullivan quite understands how incomprehensible this 100 mph cockney motormouth actually is to American ears. See if you can understand one tenth of what this person is saying (I am speaking, of course, to my American readers):

It doesn't translate well for most people in the UK, but listen hard enough through the canned laughter echoing at odd, unfunny moments, and you can just make it out.

It's not funny, and it stopped being funny after the first sketch. If you've seen one episode of Little Britain, best to write the rest off as 'watched' too.
