Palin on SNL

Just in case you have a life and weren't home to see Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, I can report that she didn't do much of anything to rehabilitate her image. In fact, she didn't say or do much of anything period except to yell out the "Live from New York..." tag line.

I thought that SNL might decide to make nice with her, and pull the punches, but the odd thing was that Palin showed up to lend her presence on a show that continued to parody and ridicule her public persona.
The show opened with another devastating mock press conference with Tina Fey, who I thought for a split second was the real Palin. Then during the Weekend Update segment, she had to sit silently while awkwardly pretending to be groovin' during a funny rap skit by Amy Poehler and the cast that satirized her--pretty roughly, I thought. I wonder if she knew what was happening.

Here's the video--oddly on a pro-McCain site. Second segment is here.

Now I guess she'll go back to inciting hatred among Real Americans, who apparently look like this.

Why aren't folks talking more about the religious (read: anti-Abortion, read Anti-Obama vote)? And even black churches have been passing around things like this:

As of 2001, approximately 24.5% of Americans identified themselves as Roman Catholic; this accounts for roughly 32% of American Christians.

I don't understand why anybody would think that DaddyFiveOh "hates" Sarah Palin? I think he just thinks it would be a really, really bad thing if she were vice president. I think it would be a very dark day if McCain and Palin got elected. If that happened I would lose all hope that this country is capable of redeeming itself.

Check out this video where the repulsive Bill O'Reilly, with John McCain nodding in agreement, makes an appeal to protecting "white power".

It's chilling stuff.

Richard: Charles is right. If McCain were to be elected, there is a pretty good chance that Palin would end up as president. Yet, she has shown herself to be woefully ignorant on virtually every subject, and proud of it. She is willing to participate in and encourage the sort of hateful ethnic and religious demagoguery that we have not seen in American political discourse in 40 years. If that's not something to be worried about, I don't know what is.

This morning Colin Powell made the case very well, I thought.

I thought Palin did a whole bunch of nothing on SNL. the first skit was awkward and unnatural all around & she didnt say much. on weekend update she looked relaxed but she didnt say anything.

but amy poeler's preggers dancin? now that was entertainment:)

oh last weekend when we ventured into the "real" virginia to canvass, oh wait maybe it was the fake VA...anyway we encountered our one crazy man who was very sure that Obama wasnt even "frickin" american, he was born in kenya and his mom wasnt a citizen either... he yakked a lot about the coast guard, the confederacy, the mason dixon line - he was so sure we wouldn't know where it was lol...other than him the response was very good for Obama.
