William Shatner Discovers Poetry In Sarah Palin’s Nonsense

  mister tambourine man? mister tambourine man!


Did you see Sarah Palin’s goodbye speech? Neither did we! But we heard it was “special,” and that she even wrote it herself (which explains everything). Here’s Star Wars hero Dr. Spock reciting Palin’s mumbo-jumbo, with bongo accompaniment! [Conan O'Brien]

    Dunno who I love more, Conan or Shatner. Damn, if Conan ain’t a tall drink of water, though.

    Shatner takes meta to new levels — quite able to laugh at himself, but still oozing self-regard. “Free Enterprise” is a very funny movie to some.

    Chances any Palinista would ever see this clip: asymptotically approaching zero.

    Whoa. I need 2 things right now. Shatner doing the full 20 minute speech like that, and a fat spliff.

  4. Bypartizoa

    This is a masterpiece! The funniest thing about it is that Shatner makes more sense than Palin. Also, too.

    Oh man, that was Trig mouth-raping, A-Rod and Bristol-fucking, Levi cocksucking MADE OF AWESOME. And cue Snowbilly’s offended and wholly illiterate twats in 3…2…

    [re=372414]Bypartizoa[/re]: Word. And more sonorously, too. Ol’ Bill looks sorta short and wide, but the man has a sense of humor that a certain snowbilly lacks. And, apparently, a lot more wisdom. Then again, and no bad cess on Mr. Shatner, Caribou Barbie sets the bar mighty low.

    [re=372414]Bypartizoa[/re]: Brilliant, but needs more time to cook. Nothing tops his Rocket Man.

  8. drpangloss

    I laughed, I cried, it was a perfect moment. Like the last episode of MASH or dramatic look hampster.

  9. Bypartizoa

    [re=372428]DoctorCulturae[/re]: [re=372423]Bronkers[/re]: Shatner has been able to walk that fine line of acting fooling without making a fool of himself.

    I…loved it.

    We all stand on the shoulders of giants but only turtles stand on the shoulders of Sarah.

    [re=372443]jetjaguar[/re]: Wow. Fantastic. I love the way the conversation rises to the level of a junior high school council meeting (“Wait! We have to say ‘yea’!’”).

    “Is this the Indigo Girls?”
    “No, it’s the other one.”

    Darn, I missed it — NBC pulled the video as part of its wound-licking program. Some lawyer decided he didn’t want to be next in line for the GE guillotine. I’m sure that Shatner has learned the Leslie Nielsen Lesson well — and unlike Arnold Schwarzenegger’s, the comedy is intentional.

    [re=372604]lawrenceofthedesert[/re]: new ones come up as fast as the suits can knock them down. Keep looking.

    Jeezus, the Shat is walking performance art.

  15. Zorg

    Hah! I posted a link to this clip on my FB page before Wonkette did! Gettin’ kinda slow in that summer heat, are we, Ms. Wonkette?

  16. Crazybroad

    [re=372604]lawrenceofthedesert[/re]: You can go to NBC.com and get the clip all legal-like. They will even let you post it to FB, etc.

  17. Hutch

    [re=372697]Crazybroad[/re]: Yep, I went. Totally worth the trip. Jim Kirk–I adore you! And yes, he did make more sense than Palin.

  18. itgetter

    [re=372443]jetjaguar[/re]: Is that for realz? If so, I cannot believe that there are people out there who thought this woman was unqualified to be VPOTUS. She decided that crumb cake could be eaten during non-morning hours. MAVERICK! Also.
