Verne, you might want to hire a temp to cover for your proofreader while she's on vacation.

Quoting article: If she became Palin, which she most assuredly did, than anyone else in this role would be a massive letdown....

It's "Then" not "Than".

I get the feeling you're not a Palin fan. Please, don't beat around the bush, you may express your feelings here, kindly elaborate.

At least people are aware that Tina Fey is acting. A lot of people do not realize that Palin is acting too.
Everything the McCain camp has said about Palin is a massive exaggeration or worse.
She's "Commander of the Alaska National Guard" and you know "you can see Russsia from Alaska", so she's an expert on foreign affairs, a "reformer who fights corruption" under investigation who appoints unqualified high school friends to state positions, and also happens to be "against earmarks" unless its federal money coming into her state. She also claims to have "stopped the bridge to nowhere" but was actually for it before she was against it, and she gladly took the lower 48's bridge money anyway to spend in her one horse town.
The McCain peple said she visited an Iraq War zone, and also visited Ireland, but it's sinc been revealed that she visited Kuwait and on the way home, the plane stopped for refuleing in Ireland. Have a Guiness for me next time, Mrs Palin.
McCane also wants to add that "she's among the countries most knowledgable people on energy in the United States" (??!!?!!!?
watch the 24 second video for yourself:

Wow, a BA in Journalism from an unknown school in Idaho, and she knows more about energy than all the scientists working for Exxon Mobil Schlumberger, and Halliburton combined!
If the election doesn't work out, maybe Ms Congeniality-Hockey Mom can teach Thermodynmics at Cal-tech or MIT, I'm sure they would want one of the most knowledgeable energy experts, considering nobody at MIT knows more about energy than the great sarah palin.
The poster child for the Political Kool Aid drinker is the the typical republican walking zombie that is falling for the over hyped unqualified Sarah Palin.

The humor was more cerebral then. Why am I not surprised you don't get it?

i have seen the old SNL skits and have never laughed at any of them. John B was awful...GASP, how can someone say that about him. it's true, that samurai guy and blue's brother's skits are terrible. i did like Gilda and Chevy, that's about it, the rest weren't funny.
i think perhaps what is considered funny has changed. it's obvious when you see old people laughing at "I Love Lucy". there nothing at all funny about her making faces. i can't even get through an episode. of course i'm challenged to name a current funny show.

A woman as vice president? Didn't I see this show on ABC several years back with Geena Davis as the female Vice President who decided not to step down after the older president's illness left him incapacitated? I wonder how this new version will play out.

McCain croaks in office and the milf accusses world leaders (most of whom either don't care or laugh at her) of sexims whenever she doesn't get her way.

Vladimir Putin puts her in her place, all of Europe scratches their head at her ignorance and the becomes the only embarassment bigger than the Crawford Village Idiot.
