It’s been quite a weekend for ridiculous stunts by the lovely ladies of the Republican party. Let’s count ’em down, shall we?
THREE! Sarah Palin appeared on Saturday Night Live last week to get back at Tina Fey for being so mean all the time. Palin proved she really knows how to act presidential use that Northern Idaho journalism degree. Let’s go straight to the video (includes Mean Girls-style bitchy stare-off between Palin and Fey)!
TWO! Yesterday, the McCain/Palin camp announced the endorsement of Telemundo actress Katie Barberi, a Mexican-American. The announcement came on the same day some other minority came out in favor of the Obama campaign. “As a Hispanic-American, I understand how important this election is for Hispanics,” said Barberi. A little birdie told me Barberi’s endorsin’ qualifications include an uncredited role as an economics student in a little something called Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
ONE! Michele Bachmann, a Republican Congresswoman from Minnesota, has the ghost of Joe McCarthy in her, and boy is Congress’s face red! In an appearance on Hardball with Chris Matthews, Bahmann—-whom I did not even know existed, much less existed solely to warn the American people against the creeping spectre of communism—-made her stunning debut on the national stage. Bahmann accused Barack Obama—-who is currently running for president of the United States of America—-of being “anti-American.”
“If we look at the collection of friends that Barack Obama has had in his life,” Huffington Post reports Bahmann as saying, “it calls into question what Barack Obama’s true beliefs and values and thoughts are. His attitudes, values, and beliefs with Jeremiah Wright on his view of the United States…is negative; Bill Ayers, his negative view of the United States. We have seen one friend after another call into question his judgment — but also, what it is that Barack Obama really believes?” Following her indictment of Obama, Bachmann called for an investigation into the American values of all members of Congress. “I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out if they are pro-America or anti-America,” she said. Believe us, Michelle—-we’re listening!
AND THE BUZZER! Totally non-Republican (educated guess) lovely lady Amy Poehler matches your Palin and raises you a Fey with her Alaskan rap bit (SNL rap bits: Making me laugh since 2007):
