More Real Than The Real

posted by on October 1 at 10:48 AM

The reality of American politics:

Ms. Couric received a rush of attention for the two interviews, in which Ms. Palin, governor of Alaska, spoke haltingly on, among other topics, her state’s “narrow maritime border” with Russia. Clips turned up across the spectrum of television and Web sites.

The first interview last Wednesday, for example, has been viewed more than 1.4 million times on YouTube, while the parody of the interview on “SNL” was streamed more than 4 million times on, viewed in full more than 600,000 times on YouTube and in shorter clips many more hundreds of thousands of times.

A month ago, there was much talk about the Palin effect; this month, we must talk about the Fey effect.

If there is a nude picture of Palin, Charles will post it with some form of verbal masturbation, don't you worry.

"Sarah Palin needs to be gang raped by a group of black thugs" says comedianne Sandra Bernherd.

Anyone know if there is a porn movie out with this theme yet. I'd love to see this pig Sarah Palin being gang raped.

That's Fey, right?

The eyes are too well-meaning to be Palin.

McCain should replace Palin with Tina Fey for the debates, she would probably do a better job and noone would know the difference.

It's Fey, you can tell by the mouth and the intelligence.
