Ha, I love this. Critics (including Palin) are bashing Tina Fey saying she unfairly exploited Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin by portraying her so well, many confused Fey with Palin.
Um, if people watching Saturday Night Live or Youtube clips confuse a talented commedienne with an American Vice Presidential candidate, the candidate is probably doing something wrong. Let's recap her political career with some clips chosen randomly from youtube:
I still don't understand why people think she is a real person, she does nothing for your species. For one, she commands zero respect due to her lack of intelligence and she has no actual transferable skills that would help her run anything, never mind a country. I mean, she thought looking out her window gave her experience in foreign policy and international relations. When asked how she would handle the current hostilities in North and South Korea, she said, "But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies." For those who don't know, North Korea is the "bad" one. But a presidential candidate should know these small details.
Anyway, I'm just a cat, what do I know.
Just remember, due to all of the states south of West Virginia, the person who said the following has an excellent chance of becoming the first female human president:
"What would your response be if I asked you to remove some books from the collection?"
-Sarah Palin inquiring with Wasilla librarian Mary Ellen Emmons about banning books right after Palin took office as Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, in 1996.
"I don't know if you're going to use the word 'terrorist' there." -Sarah Palin, asked if people who bomb abortion clinics are terrorists, NBC News interview, Oct. 23, 2008
"There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't support other women." -Sarah Palin, misquoting former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, who said women should "help" other women," Carson, Caliif., Oct. 4, 2008
"Perhaps so." -Sarah Palin, when asked if we may need to go to war with Russia because of the Georgia crisis, ABC News interview, Sept. 11, 2008
"A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I'm not one though who would attribute it to being man-made." -Sarah Palin, dismissing global warming as influenced by human activity, Aug. 2008
"I think on a national level your Department of Law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we've been charged with and automatically throw them out." -Sarah Palin, referring to a department that does not exist while attempting to explain why as president she wouldn't be subjected to the same ethics investigations that compelled her to resign as governor of Alaska, ABC News interview, July 7, 2009
Slowing down progress is bad enough; entering a second dark age might wipe us off the planet. I wish cat's could vote. Can New England please secede from the rest of the country? California, you are on your own, you have Conan the Barbarian and Conan O'Brian. That should be enough muscle and sarcasm to make it through.
