I know you guys were at an awesome boner party wranglin’ some art school tang on Saturday night, but who for those of you over 30 who decided to snuggle up with kitteh and watch some SNL, you probably caught this before every one else: Tina Fey’s indelible sketch used Palin’s actual answers. Verbatim! Almost! Very minor editing. In a word: dumbfounding. Check it out
Here’s what Fey said:
Like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this. We’re saying “Hey, why bail out Fannie and Freddie and not me?” But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those that are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy to help um… it’s got to be all about job creation, too. Also to shoring up our economy, and putting Fannie and Freddie back on the right track and so health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending because Barak Obama, you know… We’ve got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans also having a dollar value meal at restaurants. That’s gonna help. But one in five jobs being created today under the umbrella of job creation that, you know. Also.
Read how face-palmingly close Palin’s actual words are after the jump!
That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it’s got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade — we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation.
Now this may lead to what our Beloved Leader GW called the “soft tyranny of low expectations”. Meaning, that when Palin goes up aganist Biden, her ability to just stand at the podium and not shit her pants will be hailed as a success. Enjoy the fuck out of your Monday, America!
