No she didn't make you look like anything you are an idiot she just pointed it out.
 
2014-08-21 05:48:08 AM  
After watching her latest Elizabeth Warren rebuttal brainfart where half the time she's stuttering (not even a word salad, more like trying to listen to a car NOT starting), I don't know how she can complain.

What was so stunningly bizaare about it was that it wasn't live, it wasn't on TV, it was a video posted on the internet.  Someone had to watch that and thing "Nah, we don't need another take, that looks good".

Seriously?  If there's a conspiracy to make Sarah Palin look stupid, it's among her own people.

Of course, she was a bit on the defensive, considering the lampooning she had endured. Five years later, Palin hasn't forgotten.

If given the chance, she'd tell Fey: "You need to at least pay for my kids' braces or something from all the money that you made off of pretending that you're me! My goodness, you capitalized on that! Can't you contribute a little bit? Jeez!"


OMG SOCIALIZMS!

Jesus, she really is always thinking about where she can get her next payday, isn't she.

FTFA: Back in 2009, Sarah Palin said it was "perplexing" that the comedian was named entertainer of the year, and that "it also says a great deal about our society."

There's a lot about this mean old world that you don't understand. Which was sort of the point...

Sadly, there are not a lot of free market solutions for her problem. While she can keep getting work done to keep the chassis in at least presentable condition, stoopid cuts right down to the bone. The best way to prevent it, was a bit of advice from our 16th President, "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."

Or perhaps she'd prefer Proverbs 17:28: Even a fool, when he holds his peace, is counted wise: and he that shuts his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
Proverbs is likewise a wealth of wisdom, such as Proverbs 17:12: Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.
Or Proverbs 26:8: Honoring a fool is as foolish as tying a stone to a slingshot.
Or Proverbs 26:5 Sending a message by the hands of a fool is like cutting off one's feet or drinking poison.
Or Job 5:3: I have seen a stubborn fool take root, but I quickly cursed his house.
Or Job 13:5: If only you would be altogether silent! For you, that would be wisdom.

They invited her on the show, she showed up, they handled her with kid gloves, and five years later, she's complaining?
 
2014-08-21 07:19:15 AM  
So, she's still not self-aware.  Probably never will be self aware, then.

I assume she's on a lifetime Vicodin prescription as a result of all the plastic surgery. If so, neither of those seem to be improving upon the base model.

No kidding... if they pulled those punches any more, they would have been shadow boxing. If she thinks that was bad, I wonder what John Oliver will do to her now that he doesn't have sponsors or censors to worry about?
 
2014-08-21 07:21:10 AM  
I... uh... huh. I thought Tina Fey made her look smarter.

For instance Fey used discernible sentence structures.

This!  They basically turned the show into a people version of the Muppets on Ritalin when she was on in an effort to not bruise her fragile sensibilities.  Seriously, the Holy Grail of comedy material walked in their front door and they were able to somehow resist capitalizing on it so she wouldn't feel slighted.  That should have been the funniest episode in the last 15 or so years.

I wonder if Palin ever considered that the only reason she's remained in public view instead of fading into obscurity like Dan Quayle, John Edwards, or Jack Kemp is because of Tina Fey.  If Fey hadn't done her bit and made someone who couldn't think of the name of a single newspaper or magazine on demand look stupid, then conservatives wouldn't have considered Palin to be unfairly oppressed and martyred by the evil liberal mainstream media.

Palin owes Fey some money from the TV shows, Fox employment, and speaking engagements her and her daughter were able to wrangle after quitting her actual job.

Of course Sarah Palin is perplexed about Tina Fey. And by "perplexed about", I mean "jealous of". Tina Fey is:

Smart
Funny (intentionally)
Over 40 and still a hottie
 
2014-08-21 07:26:10 AM  
Did she just ask for money?

Not so much "made your whole country look," more "confirmed what the rest of the world already knew."

Self deprecation is something Sarah Palin is completely incapable of doing. On a narcissist scale she may rank above even Kim and Kanye. I'm sure the massive amounts of painkillers she's popping aren't helping matters.

You can just feel the bootstrappyism coming off of that quote.

No, she's a Republican, so it's sound financial planning.

Almost six years on and she still bears a grudge. Now imagine if Sarah Palin had access to the nuclear launch codes and Vladimir Putin said something mean.

Too many gotcha questions and scenarios.

Came here to say this...  I haz a sad.

LarryDan43: Self deprecation is something Sarah Palin is completely incapable of doing. On a narcissist scale she may rank above even Kim and Kanye.


And this completes the thought.  Fanatics of any stripe have no sense of humor, and (rightly) fear ridicule.  When Daily Show and Colbert report are more feared by politicians than real reporters, that is a pretty good clue that all rational thought has been left out in the garage.

Wyalt Derp: Almost six years on and she still bears a grudge. Now imagine if Sarah Palin had access to the nuclear launch codes and Vladimir Putin said something mean.


Considering the state of our people manning those weapons, they'd probably fail to launch, and she'd be trying to get them all fired, at the same time Congress is impeaching her for trying to fire nuclear weapons.

Honey, you didn't need help looking like an idiot from anybody.

/snap snap
 
2014-08-21 07:41:28 AM  
Wasn't the joke that Fey generally used Palin's words verbatim?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgRA8oTk8ig

I also remember something about how Palin told Fey she was flattered by the impression at one point.

Oh whatever, it's all just posturing for the elections, just ignore her.
 
2014-08-21 07:42:37 AM  
Can I think Palin is stupid  and find Tina Fey to be unfunny?

Tina Fey had already quit SNL when she did those guest appearances. I'm not sure if she got paid at all for that stuff, or if it was just a favor to Lorne Michaels.
 
2014-08-21 07:49:04 AM  
Wonder what she thinks about the pr0n parody of her getting schtupped by David Letterman.

I thought our status as the world's dunce was confirmed in 2004 when we reelected Bush.
 
2014-08-21 07:49:56 AM  
Honestly, my favorite part of Tina Fey's act was how much of it was direct quotes in the correct context, without even the tone or delivery altered.  It sort of highlighted how ridiculous Palin was, the joke being that her actual persona fits perfectly into the usually cartoonish political/celebrity spoof stuff SNL does without exaggerating it at all.
 
2014-08-21 07:50:25 AM  
Every single major political figure has been lampooned on SNL since it started and she's crying about it? And we almost gave her the launch codes.
 
2014-08-21 07:50:51 AM  
Must have been awkward for Todd.

Sarah :"Todd, does that Tina Fey make me look like an idiot?"
Todd: "No, it's the pants?"

My wife and I are rewatching West Wing right now, so I got a kick out of your reply.

"He who warned, uh, the British that they weren't gonna be takin' away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin' sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be sure and we were going to be free, and we were going to be armed." --Sarah Palin, botching the history of Paul Revere's midnight ride, June 3, 2011

"But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies." --Sarah Palin, after being asked how she would handle the current hostilities between the two Koreas, interview on Glenn Beck's radio show, Nov. 24, 2010

"All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years." --Sarah Palin, unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008

"'We believe?' Wait, I thought fast food joints, hurh. Don't you guys think that they're like of the Devil or somethin' I was. Liberals, you want to send those evil employees who would dare work at a fast food joint then ya just don't believe in, thought you wanted to, I dunno, send them to Purgatory or somethin' so they all go VEGAN and, uh, wages and picket lines I dunno they're not often discussed in Purgatory, are they? I dunno why are you even worried about fast food wages because dah."--Sarah Palin, engaging in a bizarre rebuttal of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sarah Palin Channel, Aug. 7, 2014


Yep, all Tina Fey's doing.
 
2014-08-21 08:05:22 AM  
Uh, Sarah... it wasn't Tina Fey that made you look like an idiot.
