The Phonetic Sarah Palin

An oddity from the prepared text of Palin's speech [emphasis added]:

Terrorist states are seeking new-clear weapons without delay

I didn't look in time to see if it was rendered this way on the teleprompter but I assume this spelling was designed to prevent her from a mockery-inducing Bush-like pronunciation of "newkyuler."
