You're 15 minutes end soon "soon to be ex-Governor" Palin.

Also, forgot to add that when Palin and McCain went on SNL... they were being laughed at and not with.

Apparently, Tina hates doing the character and has her own shiat to do. Even if McCain is elected, I doubt Tina would continue the Palin thing for much longer.

Let's be fair. Palin will end up running for President in 2012; that's when Fey will come back as SNL to mock her more and watch her lose the primaries.

McCain's timing wasn't the best, but I thought he did a pretty good job. They gave him a couple of good lines and jabbed a couple times, but he took it all in good fun. Palin, on the other hand, just looked like a caribou in the headlights.

Fey has already stated that she won't do Palin (giggity) after the election, regardless of who wins. (At least not as a regular guest appearance on SNL).

That's good. I love Tina but they squeezed maybe one sketch more than they should have out of that. And bringing the real people to meet the impressionists is always death. Except when Pesci and Deniro showed up on The Joe Pesci Show. I think it's because on some level, the real people are usually kind of pissed but they have to try to smile and hide it, where DeNiro and Pesci but beat the fark out of Colin Quinn and the other guy with baseball bats.

She really doesn't get it, does she?

Does my cringing when I think about this whole tawdry series of events mean that I feel sorry for her?

Yeah - McCain wasn't bad, and actually I kinda like him, as a guy, when he's just talking about stuff, being on SNL, etc.

I will never vote for him due to his politics and his beliefs in supply-side economics, but when I've heard him speak, I've thought he was a good enough guy. Maybe even to have a beer with, and he can laugh at himself.

In fact I hear now in this last week that he's really started slinging the dirtiest of the FUD, and while I've not listened to it, it sort of depresses me, I wish he wouldn't have gone there, he still had some class.

I know why they do it, but... sigh. Anyway I hope he has a nice retirement.

Sarah Palin, on the other hand, I have not liked AT ALL. I think it's the naked[1] appeal to anti-intellectualism that grates on me the most, that and the faux-country thing. Gawd how I hate that stuff.

[1] Alas, not that kinda naked :)

I would in turn advise Sarah not to hold onto any of her "Sarah outfits" and return them promptly to the GOP, lest she duly be prosecuted under McCain-Feingold

John McCain was great on Sat. He remembered his lines, took even deep hits like "with their gotcha return policies that violate your first amendment" with grace and style.

I like John McCain, but I don't recognize this guy who's inhabited his body for the past 4 months.

Caribou Barbie, on the other hand, looked like an idiot on SNL, who the staff couldn't even trust to momorize the simplest lines.

Palin isn't going anywhere. She is going to be one of the big leaders in the GOP civil war as the party attempts to define what the GOP is.

Is it a socialist fundy party?

Is it the party of small government?

Guess which faction palin will lead?

My personal favorite was the skit where Sting (IIRC) played Mick Jagger, and Mick played Keith Richards. Mick was the Keithiest Keith ever!

Not exactly true.

I did not vote for John McCain, but I got a couple of gut-laughs from his opening skit on SNL. That was the John McCain I liked once upon a time.

One of the funniest things I have seen on SNL in years was the "McCain Fine Gold" jewelry, along with the "goin' rogue now, Palin 2012" t-shirt. The latter was funny because McCain was standing there and new exactly what was happening...and looked like he might crack up laughing. McCain is nobody's idiot and he knows exactly what Ms. Palin is doing right now.

McCain's always had a great sense of humor. His appearances on the Daily Show have always been entertaining.

Why do these idiots believe that appearing on SNL will somehow get them more votes/support?

Appearing on SNL has killed more careers than helped them.

Palin is going to be dropped Nov 5th. The only reason the GOP is letting her look towards 2012 is to make it seem like she isn't a terrible terrible choice. Once they have no more money riding on her she'll be getting no new bets placed. Palin will be a distant memory barring any Tina Fey cameos on SNL. McCain supporters have to pretent Palin is the future so they won't feel so bad voting for Team Maverick.
 
2008-11-03 01:38:22 PM  
I'm not really a fan of the Palin impressions, really because I find the idea of her candidacy too appalling to find funny, but if they wanted to continue them (Tina Fay doing the impression or not) they'll probably be able to. If the "real" news doesn't cover her then the tabloid news definitely will. How could they pass up the opportunity to exploit a public official so tragically flawed?

On the off chance that McCain win tomorrow, I say Keenan Thompson needs to play Palin.

(I admit, inspired by headline)

Tine Fey might do one more appearance as Palin, next Saturday lamenting their loss. After that she'll fade away.

She is absolutely correct. I see plenty of potential there.

A sketch with Palin interviewing for a job at a fast-food restaurant, and not being able to answer the questions.

A fake commercial of Palin pleading for the world's attention again.

Sarah Palin taking over the idiot seat on "The View."

That's three jokes, more than enough for four years of SNL.

Palin is here to stay.

If not as VP then as a talk show pundit or host. You can bet that everytime the Obama administration farks up, she will be the go-to pundit on your favourite outraged TV or Radio program.

I wasn't able to watch McCain on SNL this weekend (I just moved, so my tv was unplugged at the time). I enjoyed the episode he hosted awhile back, though, especially the skit where he played a creepy husband in a Lifetime Original MovieTM. I don't doubt that he was funny this time, as he seems to have a pretty good sense of humor.

Palin's appearance, which I did catch, was pretty awkward. My impression of Palin is that she isn't able to laugh at herself when she isn't sure what's going on. She's the type who wants to know what everyone thinks about her at all times, and if they're laughing with her, great, but if they're laughing at her OR she just isn't able to tell, she's uncomfortable. On SNL, I think she just wasn't able to tell.

I liked McCain until recently; I voted for him in the primary, though I'm planning to vote for Obama in the general election. (I'm very disappointed that he wants to become president so badly that he was willing to sell out to the worst segments of the Republican party, letting them run a campaign of which he should be ashamed.) He's been in politics long enough to know that it's okay if people are laughing at you. He knows how to poke fun at himself, and he seems to know not to take things personally. Palin takes everything personally, which makes her very unlikable.
 
2008-11-03 02:04:29 PM  
Palin will "write" some books and become a guest speaker on the fundie/conservative circuit. She will make appearances on Fox News and televangelist shows. She will never hold another public office, elected or appointed.
