This is so freakin’ hilarious.
By the way, I wonder what the real reaction was….
Palin was on board her campaign jet flying from Reno to Denver as 11:30 PM Eastern rolled around. But the show was available on the Jetblue charter’s satellite TV system.
Standing alongside SNL cast member Amy Poehler who was impersonating Hillary Clinton, Fey’s Palin extolled her foreign policy expertise in a flat midwestern accent: “I can see Russia from my house!”
There were howls of laughter from the sizeable press corps covering Palin’s first foray on the campaign trail without her running man as a chaperone.
But, from the front of the plane, silence. The flight attendants assured us Palin and her entourage were watching. What she thought, though, is anybody’s guess.
Palin has yet to say so much as hello to the press corps.
The campaign is doing its best to keep Palin well away from inquisitive reporters, going so far as to book the press corps into a separate hotel from the candidate.
I guaran-goddam-tee you she went ballistic. At least on the inside. The skit was pretty vicious, IMHO. (those bastards at Universal removed it from the youtube and now I can’t embed with my cut-rate WordPress. You have to pay the ad gods to pay for the priviledge of paying for the bandwidth to watch it here.) I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, when it comes to confrontation, men are violent, women are vicious.
The skit went hard after Palin, and the little she has been kind enough to share with the nation so far. (I can see Russia from my house….killer line…bursts the Palin bubble in and of itself).
Hiding from the Press, ON YOUR OWN PLANE, is absurd. It’s a slap in the face to the country.
So the country slaps back. And that’s what you see above.
She need to get out there and work harder to define herself before Tina Fey does it for her on SNL. As the title mentions, this is Tina Fey’s dream role. Not only is she the spitting image of the Governor of Alaska, but she was a pretty hard-core Hillary supporters. She is probably taking this whole thing a bit personally (as are a bunch of women….see below) and is more than happy to take on the Governess of the North.
It would prove, once again, what a powerful force women are in our society. As a comedienne could change the course of political history. Our chicks are one of our great strengths. 😉
As you can see here…..
You can see the pictures here, which have some GREAT signs.
And the news, straight from Alaska.
Listen to the kind of politics, that go on there…this is about one of Palin’s supporters in Alaska, media-guy Eddie. He called the women who organized the rally, “socialist MAGGOTS, a bunch of socialist, baby-killing, MAGGOTS.” [his emphasis]
