Palin writing evaluation favourable

I have been reading about former Alaska Governor Palin and bumped into this article where her emails were evaluated.  She scored at the Grade 8 level using the Flesch-Kincaid readabilty test.


Readability level is something I used to consider in my technical writing work.  Grade 8 is a good level.   The experts concluded she writes at the level of a corporate executive.    Clear, concise writing.  Good for her.

I am working my way through an account of her terms as mayor of Wasilla, governor of Alaska, and as the Vice Presidential Candidate with John McCain.  When I finish this first book on the topic I will find another and then after digesting all of that, I will lay out my take on this unusual politician.
