I’ve been following the increasing number of shows in Hollywood that are starting to raise their voice in the runup to the November elections. Stars like Lindsay Lohan, Matt Damon (see video at the end), David Letterman (who looks like he is out to get John Mccain for snubbing his appearance on his show) have all been starting to raise their voices. But my favourite has to be Saturday Night Live’s continuous mocking of Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin. And boy have I enjoyed it.
As Sarah Palin, Tina Fey probably does the best political impersonation in years. The first video is the original interview with Katie Couric of CBS. It’s not particularly funny, but its scary how one-dimensional her answers were. It is very important that you pay particular attention to what she says.
The second video is just a continuation of the firts interview. In this segment, she is specifically asked about why she believes that being able to “see Russia from [her] back door” (which Sarah Palin was quoted early on saying) gives her foreign policy credentials. Ridiculous!!
Finally, now watch the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler skit on the same interview. The really frightning this is that Tina Fey doesn’t actually change that much of what Palin says in the original interview. Enjoy!
(if any of the other “Insane Authors” can help me embed the video, please do so…)
As Matt Damon says, it scary to think that Palin might be the next leader of “the free world”.
What do you guys think?
