What if Sarah Palin is the parody?

by lestro

This past weekend on SNL, Tina Fey once again parodied Sarah Palin, this time using Palin’s actual responses from the now infamous Katie Couric interview.

But what if Sarah Palin really is a parody?

What if this is all just a crazy character and she’s working us all, like Borat or Andy Kaufman?

Think about it in pure stereotypical, demographic, Hollywood terms:

A former beauty queen from a small town in Alaska who marries a half-Native snow mobile champ; She’s a born-again young-earth creationist who is blessed by a witch-hunter and believes the Flintstones are real; She has five kids, including the oldest (named Track) in the military, and her pregnant, unwed teenage daughter planning a wedding; Palin wins mayor on big, national, wedge issues; She goes on to governor, where she gets deep into a scandal that started with a sister in a bad divorce with a state trooper.

Then she was picked out of obscurity and thrown onto the Republican ticket at a time when the country is in the middle of two wars and struggling with a floundering economy.

What a great bio. You couldn’t write that. No one would believe it.

Now factor in her performances; the way she is good with a script and with catch phrases and seems to be improvising in interviews. It’s almost like ‘how far can I take this?

What if she’s just locked in the punch?

18 things you didn’t know about sex

by twit

a translation of Discover Magazine‘s “20 Things You Didn’t Know About Sex”

1. And on the third day, geologically speaking, God made fucking.

1. Life emerged on earth about 3.8 billion years ago, but sex did not evolve until more than 2 billion years later. Dirty limericks emerged only quite recently, geologically speaking.

2. Experts believe this was actually a step backward, evolutionarily speaking.

2. Sex—what is it good for? Scientists are not sure, since asexual reproduction is a better evolutionary strategy in some important ways.

3. Some species of earthworms never have to leave the house.

3. For those who refuse to commit to one strategy: The hermaphroditic earthworm Dendrobaena rubida has both male and female genitalia. If it cannot find a partner, the worm doubles up so that its female bits and male bits can go to town.

here’s hoping that this fashion snafu is the final undoing of the Clinton campaign in this visceral nation of ours…
