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.
