Very funny! I was barely aware that SNL was still around, is it usually this good?
What would be even funnier is if (1) she eventually becomes President and (2) she really doesn't believe in dinosaurs.
Uh, folks, the thing about Creationists is not that they don't believe in dinosaurs, its [sic] that they believe that Adam and Eve road [sic] them to church.
Tina Fey was not believable as Palin. Red? RED? Palin wears earth-tones, Tina. If they don't have anything brown in wardrobe, then you need to get Lorne to shell out a bit of cash. Tina's suit was giving me a headache.
They can't be hoping for Palin to win, because Tina Fey isn't a regular. Casey Wilson does have a Palinish look to her, but the producers decided she doesn't have the requisite experience.
I'd love to see Palin appear on the show, especially if they had her side-by-side with Fey in identical clothes. The sketch writes itself.
The real Sarah Palin was on her campaign plane when the episode aired. The JetBlue charter plane outfitted television screens on the back of their seats allowed the candidate, her staff and the traveling press to watch. No word yet on whether Palin found the skit funny.
Honestly I didn't find it funny except for the jabs at Clinton. Fey didn't do the accent right either. It was totally one-sided against Palin, making fun of her views.
neurodoc - I was confused by the "G" in GILF, but thought that it was for Governor...
Anyway, that's why the heck I did it. I hope the heck that's okay with you.
And in 2000, they actually showed al gore their take on the debates, with their version going "Lockbox" to show him how badly he was seen.
Al Gore: [ interrupting ] Jim. May I just say that in my plan, the "lock-box" would be used only for Social Security and Medicare. It would have two different locks. Now, one of the keys to the "lockbox" would be kept by the President; the other key would be sealed in a small, metal container and placed under the bumper of the Senate Majority Leader's car.
...But let me add something in my plan. The "lock-box" would also be camoflauged. Now, to all outward appearances, it would be a Leatherbound edition of Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas. But it wouldn't be. It would be the "lock-box".
Jim Lehrer: ...I will instead ask each candidate to sum up, in a single word, the best argument for his candidacy. Governor Bush?
George W. Bush [Will Farrell, squinting very seriously into the camera]: Strategery.
