Why SNL loves Sarah Palin

Because she makes their job so easy. The parody they did of her, much of it is, WORD FOR WORD, her own words at the actual interview. My favorite quote from the ACTUAL interview:

That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Helping the—it’s got to be all about job creation too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans and trade—we’ve got to see trade as opportunity, not as competitive, scary thing, but one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today—we’ve got to look at that as more opportunity.

Kind of reminds me of the South Carolina Teen Beauty Queen:

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some, people out there in our nation don’t have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as, uh, South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our [children].

Seriously, watch the real Sarah Palin interview:

Then watch the parody on SNL:

Then make your own decision, or weep, or both…

  1. LOL – I know, every time I see her on TV I do the Miss South Carolina impression. “Alaskans can see other countries from like our backyards, such as like the Russia.”Hee hee… I CAN NOT WAIT for Biden to do the Mexican hat dance on her. LOL…. Though you know part of me (paranoia time!!) suspects this is a trick being played on us by Karl Rove. Maybe they have been having her pretend to be stupid to throw us off. That way at the debate when she says anything vaguely coherent she’ll be praised like a baby learning how to babble.Scary thought that.
