Tina Fey in the role of Sarah Palin this weekend on Saturday Night Live.
What a sad, sad revelation Saturday Night Live must have been to the Barrack Obama camp. After watching this skit I'm sure he and his political experts realized the grave error they made in selecting Joe Biden as his running mate. Instead, Obama should have selected Tina Fey!
What a brilliant stratagem that would have been. Like something straight out of the (George) Bush Doctrine playbook. In a strike that would have totally preempted McCain's snickering choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate, Fey would have likely resulted in a McCain/Lieberman, or some other more conventional ticket. Instead, by not choosing Fey as his vice presidential choice, Obama conceded the shock and awe to McCain. The result? An Obama campaign more devastated then the nation of Iraq.
Besides aborting McCain's first choice for vice president before he could have birthed it, Fey makes a far better looking Sarah Palin than Sarah Palin herself. She can also act, so when asked if she feels qualified to conduct foreign policy based on her ability to see Russia across the Bering Strait or her visit "overseas" to Canada, I'm sure she would have sounded far more convincing than Palin saying, "Hell yah -- I'm ready to be president!"
Even more valuable is Fey's experience as comedy writer and performances before live audiences as a comedian. Imagine how less provocative might her treats sound to the Russians, seasoned with some laughs, that if they don't stand down she and her NATO brothers may have to go "nuculur" on their Red asses. Why, Dada can even imagine Putin chuckling at that!
Sadly, the Obama camp can now only rue their choice of Biden for VP. But not to feel too badly, however. That's because democratic party followers take politics a little more seriously than their sarcastic republican opponents whose choice of Palin mocks the entire political system, even if it means sacrificing the nation's future. But that's the price they are willing to pay for victory.
Democrats would likely have abandoned an Obama/Fey ticket in droves had he so blatantly flipped off the serious consideration choosing a vice president demands. Sadly, therein lies the rub. Because Fey would have made a great VP!
