"Sarah Palin Network" (SNL parody)

There's one bad word, it rests on unfair stereotypes...but I must admit: it cracked me up, again and again.


I anticipate a divided response. Where I saw it (on FR), most really found it insulting and not-funny. I thought it was funny. Particularly the teacher-part, and the Katie Couric part.

More Palin bashin'...

...but darn it, it WAS funny.

Is that reaction mixed enough? 8^)

Oh Dan, not you too. I thought it was funny during the campaign, but now I find that routine so tired.

I would have found it funny if they did something unexpected. Perhaps depicting Palin as a shrewd behind-the-scenes power broker. But more dumb Palin and Tea Party jokes... predictable.

I guess that's why they don't call it Baskins One and Only One Flavors.

CR said...

Cute.

Who eles was excited to hear that now you can apply underarm deoderant without irritation right after shaving?

(The intro commercial is for some Dove deoderant and that is as far as my browser is letting me go... I watched the commercial three times).

I'll go find it on Hulu.com or something.

In the meantime, I think Tina Fey's impersonation has been hilarious from day one.

It's my work PC... does not have Adobe Flash Player 10... I'll try back later with a different PC.

Was that Phil Johnson playing the part of Todd Palin? :-)

David said...

Mrs. Palin can handle the fun being thrown her way, near as I can tell. That says something.

I needed a chuckle today :o)

DJP said...

Hm... good point, S2.

Susan said...

Hilarious...and yes, I think it may even make the real Sarah Palin laugh!

Sir Aaron said...

I saw this at least two days ago on FoxNews. That actress really does look and talk like Sarah Palin, doesn't she?

I thought it was dumb. SNL has failed to amuse for years now, and this is no exception. The Charlie Brown dub was perfect though.

MJ said...

Yeah, whatever. I'm a little tired of the incessant ridicule heaped on this woman. That she handles it as well as she does says a lot about her character. I doubt Ms. Fey would do as well. Besides, SNL has stunk for years. Hasn't been funny since Belushi died. So there's that.

"What's wrong Katie Curic?... they're simple questions. I Gotcha, Media!"

SNL has been sucking for years. The elevation of Tina Fey has proven that they're desperate. The only comedians on SNL worth anything are the lonely island guys if only for their musical abilities.
