Saturday Night Live – Palin & Clinton

Saturday Night Live’s 34th season kicked off this past weekend.  Opening skit?  Tiny Fey as Sarah Palin and Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton.  Tina and Amy also paired up in the very funny movie Baby Mama.


The more I read about Sarah Palin, the more I feel she is unfit to even be under consideration for Vice-President of the United States of America.

NY Times: Once Elected, Palin Hired Friends and Lashed Foes

MSNBC: Palin cut own duties as mayor of Wasilla

Amusing – even Karl Rove thinks the McCain ads have gone too far in their attacks and distortions against Obama.

From the Obama campaign:

“In case anyone was still wondering whether John McCain is running the sleaziest, most dishonest campaign in history, today Karl Rove – the man who held the previous record – said McCain’s ads have gone too far,” said Obama campaign spokesman Tommy Vietor.

Hopefully the Obama campaign realizes that a large swath of the McCain / Palin supporters ultimately don’t seem to care that the McCaign campaign is running “the sleaziest, most dishonest campaign in history.”  So calling them sleazy is pointless.  Adjust strategy!

    Interesting ideas and some very disturbing articles you list as well. I just want to remind you that no single, or duo of media outlets has a monopoly on the truth and often news outlets in America tend to screw the news stories they print and lean in one political direction or another.

    But interesting articles you list nonetheless.

    Its clear you get some pleasure pointing out Palin bears a resembelence to a fictional teacher/stripper and that she may be grossly unsuitable to be the VP of America.

    My challenge to you is tell us why Biden will make a better VP then Palin. Enough of your negativeness and mockery. Its fun on a certain level but at some point you need to demonstrate why you want ‘a’ to happen instead of pointing out why you do not want ‘b’ to happen.

    You know if I looked hard enough, I could find someone on TV who looks like Barack Obama and Biden. If I looked hard enough I could find a news article from a major media outlet that totally slams Binden and Obama. Whats the truth? No media outlet has a monopoly on it.

    I meant ‘skew’ the news stories not ‘screw’
