I’m not one who generally writes much about politics – or enjoys getting into heated political conversations – but in the recent weeks, I have been enjoying the conversations I’ve had with folks. And generally it starts with something like “Yah – but can you see Russian from there…?” Oh Sarah Palin. Part of me wonders if she thinks she’s actually doing well in these interviews, or if she walks away from them saying, “Oh gee. Did I really just say “Putin rears his head…” on national television. I’d like to give her some credit, but…it’s just not looking good for her. At all. I’m gleefully looking forward to both the Vice-Presidential Debate tomorrow night, as well as SNL’s spoof of it on Saturday (which I’m sure must be forthcoming – Tina Fey is amazing).
Anyway – I’m sure you’ve all had your fill of Palin-videos, but you gotta love this one where she can’t even name one single magazine or newspaper she’s read. Watch it here and watch Katie Couric’s expression at the 35-second mark. She’s clearly thinking, “Oh just answer the damn question Palin….” There are two other videos that I watched tonight that are pretty worth it. The first is the viral YouTube clip 5 Friends (uncensored version).
The second – which is also slightly inappropriate – is Sarah Silverman’s “The Great Schlep.” In it, she encourages everyone to schlep on over to Florida and get their old Jewish relatives to vote for Obama. Definitely worth a watch.
