Once again, I’m sending major thanks out to the Randi Rhodes MySpace page for posting this video of tonight’s SNL show featuring this fantastically nailed performance by Tina Fey as Sarah Palin, and Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton. Best line of the skit (and there were many) was Poehler/Clinton saying, “In conclusion, I invite the media to grow a pair, and if you can’t I will lend you mine.” (Heck, I’ll loan them mine if they’ll step up their pressure on getting to the truth. ;)) Enjoy the video!
***Added 9/14/08: Well, it looks like NBC Universal pulled a copyright claim (yes, I know, it’s their right, their property, but…) on all the SNL videos that were posted to YouTube last night. I hope those of you who headed over here to see it DID get to see it before they were pulled down. Here’s the SNL web site link to the video where you get to sit through a commercial before watching the skit. Upside is that it’s high quality and fairly large. I think I’ve watched the skit about 10 times now, and find something new each time. I don’t think Fey and Poehler could have possibly done a better job than they did, with their impeccable timing, nuanced looks, and overall out Palining and Clintoning the actual women! 😉
And for those of you wondering what the heck flerg, flirg (or however you want to spell it) means, here’s what I found, but take it all with a grain of salt, or with… (shame on me ;)).
Again, enjoy the video!
DemRapidResponse posting this morning brought me this. Thank goodness they find all the good stuff because I just don’t have the time to. Pass it along, please!
McCain Lies About Reformer Credentials
- McCain on The View lies about reformer credentials, also claims that Sarah Palin didn’t ask for earmarks as Governor. In fact she took almost $500 million dollars as earmarks Governor. Read the rest of this entry »
Eve Ensler, the American playwright, performer, feminist and activist best known for “The Vagina Monologues”, wrote the following about Sarah Palin.

I am having Sarah Palin nightmares.
I dreamt last night that she was a member of a club where they rode snowmobiles and wore the claws of drowned and starved polar bears around their necks. I have a particular thing for Polar Bears. Read the rest of this entry »
MySpace Democrats just posted a bulletin with a great video from an organization I was previously unfamiliar with, truthandhope.org, but one of which I’m now a fan. This video does a fantastic job of pointing out the important history of community organizing Sarah Failin’ Palin and other GOP folks disgustingly mocked at their liars convention last week. THANKFULLY someone is out there responding to the BS the repugs, I mean repubs, are dishing out; BS which, sadly, folks with no interest in discovering the truth are lapping up. Truthandhope.org needs help getting this ad on TV, so if you can muster up some dinero, please help them out. Just click on this link to find out more.
Man, oh man, oh man, do I ever LOVE Jon Stewart!!! This clip is one of his best–enjoy!
(Seems the first video was taken down, so here’s another. You can click on the Jon Stewart link I posted above to take you to the Comedy Central site video. WordPress won’t allow videos from there to be embedded here.)
Time to haul my fanny back over here to blog. This extremely important election is no time for me to sit back, relax on the writing, and not do my best to make sure our country takes that MUCH NEEDED turn toward change. Mind you, I can be pretty lazy on my days off, so I’ll just start this trek copying today’s email from MoveOn. Also have to share one of the great quotes to come out of some fantastic speeches at the Democratic National Convention.
