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!

24: Changing Our Political Landscape

<i>24</i>: Changing Our Political Landscape

Apparently, and don't spread this around too much, television can sway people's political opinions. No, it's true! It was true back in the day, when an unshaven Dick Nixon debated a fresh-faced JFK and came off looking like a cartoon hobo, and it's true today. At least, that's what actor Dennis Haysbert would have us believe. He thinks that playing the President of the United States on 24 for two seasons (as well as one season as a candidate and one season as a former prez) showed America how awesome it would be to have a black president, and said as much to the Associated Press. But if that's the case, why didn't Hillary Clinton benefit from any of the numerous female presidents we've seen on TV?
