Palin on SNL tonight

I know I shouldn't be bashing Sarah Palin since she's going to disappear tomorrow, but I just saw Palin's little cameo on the SNL thing tonight and, oh my god was it creepy.

Remember, this is supposed to be comedy.


  • Yeah, that was kinda freaky. She definitely didn't seem like the road show Palin we've seen on the campaign trail or in her interviews. it was a little chilly, if you know what I mean.

  • Yeah. I think the key, when your joking about exercising overreaching authoritarian power is to keep it kinda light.

    I think we can also gather that she hasn't gotten over the Tina Fey impression.

  • Remember how we discussed earlier how Republicans (or social conservatives) have a whole different set of rules for "comedy?" It's all about ridiculing the "other" not finding humor in herself. I think Palin falls squarely in this group.... She's one of the true believers of the liberal media conspiracy to usher in the era of godless hedonism... and homo-sex'yuls

    (There are exceptions to this rule, I'm sure)

  • Yeah.

    Although in this one, she just doesn't look like she's in a comic mood. (I guess losing and being made fun of does that to you.)

    (PS. Dennis Miller's decision to become the Republican comic was the worst career decision ever.)
