My panties are flavored like Sarah Palin whilst giving off a machismo of John Cleese.

"What fascinates me, though, is how people watching her on television... Can they not see that she's basically learned certain speeches -- and she does them very well, she's got a very good memory -- but it's like a nice-looking parrot. The parrot speaks beautifully, and kind of says "Aw, shucks" every now and again, but doesn't really have any understanding of the meaning of the words that it is producing. Even though it's producing them very accurately. And she's been in these training sessions with Cheney's pals, and she's learned these speeches. And the extraordinary thing is that so many people are taken in by it. And the truth is that Sarah Palin is no way good enough. And if you lined up ... from [here? Europe? Yurr?] left-wingers, centrists, right-wingers, you wouldn't find ten percent... You [wharrble] wouldn't find five percent who think that she's good enough to run the United States. And she's running as the partner of a 72-year-old cancer survivor. I mean, Monty Python could have written this. ... And I'm sorry, Michael Palin, to say you're not the funniest Palin any more [blurble]."

John Cleese is off his antidepressant meds again, I see.

Funny how comedians tend to turn into bitter people as they get older.

And thank Bob for that! A content, chipper, even-tempered John Cleese would be a sign of the apocalypse.

Doesn't John Cleese know?

We're taking turns, to act as a sort of, executive officer for the week. And all the decisions of that officer, have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting...etc. etc.

Holy crap. I guess the word "IRONIC" has absolutely no meaning for you does it?

Cleese is actually quite the conservative, and took great pleasure at skewering leftists (much of the JPF-based stuff in Life of Brian is his, and is a parody of left-wing fringe groups in 1970s Britain). Interestingly, while he considers himself a conservative, he's an Obama supporter, and has also done work for the Liberals in Britain. He is also, however, one to call it as he sees it; in this case, he's got Palin pegged.

No, you came here for an argument. Now, if I'm to argue, I must take up a contrary posotion.

John Cleese Endorses Barack Obama
Posted on April 8, 2008 by Ryan

The comedian and Monty Python writer put his support behind Barack Obama this week. "I think he is a brilliant man," Cleese said, explaining that he would like to pen speeches for Obama if the candidate captures the nomination and, of course, if Obama accepts the offer.

This is the latest in a series of high profile endorsements for Obama, including Oprah Winfrey, members of the Kennedy family, Hulk Hogan, and Bill Richardson. So far, none have put him over the top, but he hasn't lost his momentum either.
