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!
Seriously, folks? THIS is who you want engaging in discussions on national security issues (even remotely), let alone living in OUR White House? Someone whose response to Palin’s lack of national security experience is that we all remember that Alaska is the closest part of “our” continent to Russia. (I think Canada and Central and South America might want to lay claim to the continent, too, Cindy!) Say what? Closeness to Russia constitutes experience?! Well since I’m part Russian/German/Finnish/Polish I guess her warped logic really gives me an in, with an appointment to Secretary of State in my future under a McCain presidency? ARGH!
When (if) you vote for John McCain, you get the baggage that is his wife, sort of like marrying into your spouse’s family. Of course worse than having Cindy Read the rest of this entry »
