markov chain-based palin simulator

This fancy website uses existing Palin statements to construct a computer model of what words/phrases would be likely to follow one another, then uses the model to generate random answers. For example:

Q: What is the role of the US in Iraq and Afghanistan?

A: Iraq and Afghanistan will lead to further security of our nation, especially with homeowners. It's just too impacting, we had to step in there. I think the corruption on Wall Street, affecting Main Street. And we've got to flow into our domestic markets that need that oil first. So, I didn't blink then even, when asked to run as his running mate, the first thing I said to him was, if you ask that question of many vice presidents, they may have the same answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the people of America are not noticing that we can show is economic sanctions perhaps could be implemented if things weren't gonna go right.
