Sarah Palin, This is an AB Conversation

Sarah Palin, This is an AB Conversation So C your way out! Seriously, I have a problem with this: It seems Sarah Palin is a big fan of Tina Fey's effing hysterical impression of her. So much so that she's angling to appear on an upcoming episode of SNL as Tina Fey. First of all, Palsies, isn't that just a leeeeeetle too meta for a hockey mom bumpkin like you, wouldn'tcha say? I mean, aren't you worried that when you start with that high concept beeswax, you're gonna alienate the Joe Six-packs who like you because you're not smarter than they are? See here's the thing: we're laughing at you, not with you. I understand it's a difficult distinction. I know subtlety isn't your forte. That type of thing is pretentious and unpatriotic, by golly!

Now listen, we all know that SNL has had a long history of political parody, and that sometimes the real deals even show up to mock themselves, as Hillary Clinton did earlier in the season. That I don't take issue with. But this bid by Palin just seems like a desperate, grasping attempt to be in on the joke, and it's too little, too late. After all, it's a little hard to buy that Palin is such a good sport about all this, being that she admitted she watched Fey's first installment with the sound off. Umm, how are you going to hear the funny things that Tina is saying with the sound off? Trust us, Miss Alaska, you make us giggle plenty as it is. Now stop ruining our fun and go back to shooting wolves from a helicopter, mkay? There's a good girl!
