I would like to take the opportunity to profess my undying lust for Tina Fey in spite of how fucking scary dead on her Palin impersonation is.

rmack September 15, 2008 at 9:48 am

Spot on. Kind of sad really.

Sara K. Smith September 15, 2008 at 9:51 am

[re=95924]rmack[/re]: I had the same reaction. My heart kind of broke for Hillary Clinton at the end there, where she cackles about how she “probably should have wanted it more.”

Terry September 15, 2008 at 9:51 am

Sad in that Tina Fey’s impersonation is pretty much EXACTLY Sarah Palin’s views and attitude.

shoeho September 15, 2008 at 9:52 am

It’s perfect. Which kinda says it all.

SuperRounder September 15, 2008 at 9:52 am

Gauntlet thrown. Time to up your Hillary game, Amy.

“I can see Russia from my house”


Norbert September 15, 2008 at 9:55 am

remember how SNL was kind of funny, about 30 f’ing years ago?

Godless Liberal September 15, 2008 at 9:57 am

[re=95935]Norbert[/re]: I remember how everyone bitched about how SNL used to be funny, starting with its second episode.

Borat September 15, 2008 at 9:58 am

Hillary wasted too much time educating her self rather than running PTAs and the like.

My mom has the saying that people who aren’t educated think they know everything, people who are educated realise they know nothing.

I can see how this applies to the Snowbilly, but not sure about Hillz yet.

Cape Clod September 15, 2008 at 10:00 am

It is making my head want to explode that they literally are pushing the idea that she has foriegn policy experience because she lives ‘close’ to Russia. Why aren’t they being laughed off the face of the planet for floating this meme?

mookworthjwilson September 15, 2008 at 10:01 am

Fey dead on, Amy not so much…She doesn’t have that accent down…it just sounds like Amy Poehler talking in kind of a low voice…

columnv September 15, 2008 at 10:03 am

I’m sad. First time that McCain has been ahead: http://www.electoral-vote.com/ and http://electoralmap.net/index.php

Best line “Although it is never sexist to question a female politician’s credentials, please ask this one about dinosaurs. So I invite the media to grow a pair. And if you can’t, I will lend you mine”
You hear that, you stupid MSM asshats?

Mara47 September 15, 2008 at 10:06 am

Just when you thought tragedy couldn’t get any more painful, along comes comedy to prove you wrong.

Jeez, it’s only 10am and I need a drink, and I don’t drink.

mr.november September 15, 2008 at 10:06 am

I support this sketch as evident by my smile I’m beaming. Even after my 15th viewing of it. How is playing Biden? There is a bunch of comic gold there.

donner_froh September 15, 2008 at 10:08 am

[re=95942]Cape Clod[/re]: The entire planet (minus the Republican part of the USA) is either laughing or trembling in stark terror over her foreign policy expertise.

Norbert September 15, 2008 at 10:09 am

[re=95937]Godless Liberal[/re]: oh yeah right. but this really is the blandest, least satirical pap I can imagine, the kind I can get any old time with Wasilla dinner theater, thank you very much.

Serolf Divad September 15, 2008 at 10:12 am

[re=95937]Godless Liberal[/re]:

SNL used to be funny back when they had all those guys on who moved on and left the show to go make funny movies.

thejames September 15, 2008 at 10:16 am

An FYI: Here’s a satellite photo of the only part of Alaska that can see part of Russia.

The big uninhabited rock (2x3km) on the left is Russia. The tiny one is Alaska. Both are worthless and both are in the middle of the Bering Straits. Sarah Palin’s house is not on the small one. I don’t think there’s enough room for wolf puppies there, so I don’t imagine she goes there often.

TGY September 15, 2008 at 10:16 am

“All ya have to do is want it.”

AHAHAhaHAHahHAhahahahAHAhaahaa. AhHahaha..Ahaha..aha..

Delicious September 15, 2008 at 10:19 am

Was there a funny Michael Phelps sketch? I find that hard to imagine.

Not_So_Much September 15, 2008 at 10:21 am

Many winger friends are forwarding this clip to me. The sad funny thing is that they love how spot-on the Fey impersonation is without realizing she’s portraying the Snowbilly as the moran she truly is…(sigh)

Cookie Guggelman September 15, 2008 at 10:22 am

This is all so pre-9/15 financial collapse.

rambone September 15, 2008 at 10:23 am

I know that it’s highly improbable that Palin and Hillary will ever tongue-kiss in real life, but I was kinda hoping that the actors would do it on SNL.

It could have even been a dream sequence, like the one with Madonna and Mike Meyers.

thejames September 15, 2008 at 10:23 am

Darn it, messed up again. In my efforts to serve humanity, I’ll try with just a link.

*Here’s* a satellite photo of the only part of Alaska that can see part of Russia.

mookworthjwilson September 15, 2008 at 10:31 am

[re=95964]Delicious[/re]: Why do you have winger friends? Sheerly for the entertainment value?

wx insider September 15, 2008 at 10:34 am

If only Hillary looked half has good as Amy
I might still be home at night!

JamesMichaelCurley September 15, 2008 at 10:35 am

[re=95957]Serolf Divad[/re]: And die.

V572625694 September 15, 2008 at 10:40 am

[re=95957]Serolf Divad[/re]: Yeah, like Rob Schneider. That guy was hilarious….

NoWireHangers September 15, 2008 at 10:41 am

This was funny. Although I really would have liked to see Hillz go more postal. Ripping the wood from the podium was a good start, but for the next skit, how about throwing the podium? This could be a delicious series, building to a skit where Hillz waterboards Palin on a snowboard or something…

WadISay September 15, 2008 at 10:42 am

SNL is funny for the same reason Rowan and Martin’s Laugh In was funny: you’re stoned.

Servo September 15, 2008 at 10:45 am

Most of you don’t remember the National Lampoon Radio Hour, from which SNL and SCTV were spawned.

jagorev September 15, 2008 at 10:46 am

[re=95951]mr.november[/re]: Biden? Who the hell is that?

Canmon (the Inadequate) September 15, 2008 at 10:47 am

I thought they would take advantage of Amy Poehler’s pregnancy to get her to play Bristol.

S.Luggo September 15, 2008 at 10:53 am

[re=95933]Hart88[/re]: Dumbya could see Mexico from his favorite barstool in El Paso. Look what happened to him.

Advocatus_Diaboli September 15, 2008 at 10:59 am

Good thing Hillz didn’t get the nomination: Pohler’s impersonation sucks.

Now, if Barry wins, will the SNL token black player get center stage?

Oh, and I think Palin needs to work on her impersonation of Tina; Tina is so much hotter.

GayInMaine September 15, 2008 at 11:05 am

“I can see Russia from my house.” Best. Line. Ever.

shoeho September 15, 2008 at 11:18 am

[re=95950]Mara47[/re]: I really don’t either, although I allude to it here often. The idea that I could if it really got TOO awful sustains me. Must buy vodka futures.

njknight September 15, 2008 at 11:18 am

“I don’t agree with the Bush Doctrine.”
“And I don’t know what that is.”

The real best line ever.

Luke Warm September 15, 2008 at 11:20 am

Impression was great. Hopefully we will not have to see it after November.

Texan Bulldoggette September 15, 2008 at 11:39 am

[re=95967]Not_So_Much[/re]: I can’t believe that many ‘wingers’ watch SNL. Shouldn’t they be asleep with their Sunday clothes freshly pressed & awaiting to usher in the Sabbath? It would be nice if more wingers watched SNL, but I think mostly it’s for us elite, wine-sipping libtards. Basically, they’re preaching to the choir (oh look, another church reference!)

Sussemilch September 15, 2008 at 11:41 am

The people don’t find that skit funny are the people who don’t understand that Palin is a joke to begin with.

WagTehGod September 15, 2008 at 11:43 am

Oh Tina, Rachel Maddow will be happy to know you’ve replaced her atop my Unattainable Ladies Stalker List.

itgetter September 15, 2008 at 12:03 pm

[re=95964]Delicious[/re]: No.
[re=96060]WagTehGod[/re]: Hahahaha. I’m liking her new show so far (Rachel, not Tina. Although 30 Rock is the best).

“Orwell Rolls In His Grave”

best documentary on the media, evah!

TGY September 15, 2008 at 1:14 pm

As an aside, I looked up Amy Poehler on Teh Googles and this is what she had to say about American Apparel Ads in an interview with Bust magazine.

“On American Apparel ads:

They’re fucking gross, man. Look, I love beautiful girls too. I think everyone should be free to have their knee socks and their sweaty shorts, but I’m over it. I’m over this weird, exhausted girl. I’m over the girl that’s tired and freezing and hungry. I like bossy girls, I always have. I like people filled with life. I’m over this weird media thing with all this, like, hollow-eyed, empty, party crap.”

Larry Fine September 15, 2008 at 1:14 pm

Maybe if Palin gets to be VP for 8 years, and then Prez for 8 years, we Americans can have 16 years of Tina Fey impressions. Good enuf reason to vote for the girl.

Miller September 15, 2008 at 1:25 pm

The more this is posted around the funnier it’s supposed to get, right? I don’t think it’s working.


sati demise September 15, 2008 at 1:28 pm

[re=96185]Larry Fine[/re]: ack, no, no, no, no, no, no.

It will be 6 months of McCain, then Armageddon.

catsonmars September 15, 2008 at 1:44 pm

aww how cute, baby’s first funny.

fuzzy September 15, 2008 at 1:55 pm

There was a great Alaska Women Reject Palin rally in Anchorage over the weekend. Not all Alaskan women love Palin! Pics here: http://laurainak.blogspot.com

Caribou Barbie could be part of Darth Hillary’s Evil Master Plan. Think about it–Hillary sabotages Hopey’s campaign by refusing to shiv Barbie. Walnuts gets elected. Some crazed Hilltard assassinates him. Caribou Barbie becomes President. She reaches across the aisle, and Darth Hillary becomes her Secretary of State. Hillz whispers evil tidings about the Rooskies in Barbie’s ear. Barbie becomes paranoid, then decides to flip a nuke at Moscow. As the bombs start to fall, Hillz goes on TV cackling, “I told you so!” After the nuclear holocaust, Darth Hillary becomes the all-powerful Queen of the Cockroach Empire. It SO could happen!

I’d do Tina Fey in a heartbeat, but NOT done up as Caribou Barbie. Chills down the spine.

ABitOfACommunist September 15, 2008 at 4:39 pm

It’s fun to google “flurge” and see everyone falling all over themselves to figure out what it means.

freppish September 15, 2008 at 4:42 pm

nice, tina really looks similar, but is hotter

gg September 15, 2008 at 9:19 pm

I put flurg in and got a link to 30 Rock’s website! Nice!!

pixiestyx September 15, 2008 at 10:42 pm

[re=95996]Canmon (the Inadequate)[/re]: next week.
