(Newser) – 'Twas a year ago tomorrow that John McCain’s team forbade Sarah Palin from delivering a concession speech, and a new book, Sarah From Alaska, gives you the chance to finally find out what she planned to say. Some highlights, from the Daily Beast:

  • “It would be a happier night if elections were a test of valor and merit alone, but that is not for us to question now.

  • "I will remember all the people who said they were praying for me—you prayer warriors have been my strength and my shield.
  • “I told my husband Todd to look at the upside: Now, at least, he can clear his schedule, and get ready for championship title number five in the Iron Dog snow machine race!
  • “If [Obama] governs America with the skill and grace we have often seen in him, and the greatness of which he is capable, we’re gonna be just fine.”
