Via Althouse, the most compelling case yet made for why the ‘Cuda shall not, in fact, be Eagletoned.

Anyone recognize who’s playing our heroine here, incidentally? You’ve seen her before. Content warning.

Lisa Nova is funny, I’m surprised her stint on Mad TV was so short. To hear it told, she left them rather than getting fired.

Guessing that the poll reached a number of Dems staging their own “operation chaos,” assuming it’s even that legit.

LMAO at the video, though I think “The Palinator” is much tougher than portrayed.

Strangely enough, I understood each of the oblique references, and still I want to vote for her more now than I did before I watched it. And trust me Barrack, that’s like trying to squeeze the fiftieth pound of air pressure in your tire.

Immolate on September 3, 2008 at 3:23 PM

If Shepard smith says “We know all there is to know about Barrack Obama” ….really Shep?

Oh and….can you repeat that Dem talking-point lingo “a heartbeat away from the Presidency” a few more times?

F-in’ tool……….

Yeah. Got a lot of them upset, too. People had to explain to them it was satire.

wise_man on September 3, 2008 at 3:51 PM

The McCain part was pathetic, but Lisa Nova is great, and doing Palin she is awesome. I think it says something that Obama is such a wimp that the libs can’t come up with anything more pathetic than he really, uh, is.

MirCat on September 3, 2008 at 3:56 PM

Speech writing monster. That explains it, he can’t deliver them but he can write them. I knew he had a hidden talent somewhere. Actually, this really wasn’t funny at all. More of a hit peace on John McCain and Sarah Palin. Is this how the Libs really perceive them? Anyway, not at all interesting or even topical. Can see this nonsense on the nightly news, if I cared to watch it.

It is only in the minds of Hollywood and the MSM that Obama us qualified to be the president or anything else for that matter. It’s called “The Leader of the Free World” for a reason. And it can’t be left to an unqualified amateur. By the way, never found MAD TV very funny, a little to vulgar for my tastes.

Tommy_G on September 3, 2008 at 3:58 PM

Qzsusy on September 3, 2008 at 3:48 PM

I’m not female, but I did. The article is dishonest and blatantly biased. It’s entirely based on a poll from the Garin-Hart-Yang group- a Democrat research company. The article claims that women are “deserting” the Republican party, with zero evidence to back it up- they merely include a poll that indicates women are more likely to vote Obama than McCain. Women favoring Democrats over Republicans is nothing new.

Hollowpoint on September 3, 2008 at 4:11 PM

Something just occurred to me.

I think this whole “He didn’t vet her!!” argument has the potential to backfire spectacularly.

If Sarah Palin bombs tonight, or in the debates, or on the campaign trail… then Mcain-Palin is through, and would have been even without the media spin. If she doesn’t, Americans will have made their own decision that she is good enough.

If that happens… the notion that Senator McCain was reckless to pick her will be laughable, and instead the impression will be that he can make great and surprising choices, even on the fly when he seems to be shooting from the hip. That’s a very positive image.

Essentially, the media has just backed the Obama camp (against their will, I suspect) into a position where whatever bounce McCain gets (positive or negative) from selecting Sarah Palin as a running mate will be greatly amplified.

Given the underlying pro-Democratic currents this year, and the trailing position McCain’s had all year, that’s a huge boost for the McCain campaign.

Karl Rove’s media mind-control beams seem to be continuing to function perfectly.

ClintACK on September 3, 2008 at 4:13 PM

I’m a big Palin fan and I think this was funny as hell. C’mon people you have to lighten up. It isn’t all politics. I suspect Palin would laugh as well.

PackerBronco on September 3, 2008 at 4:14 PM

I’m shocked, I tell you, just shocked!!!

Ah, pseudonominus, Ann and Nancy wilson are from California. And the band itself was formed in Bellevue. Oh, and the bit was not funny.

thekingtut on September 3, 2008 at 4:47 PM

Meh. SNL reject skit, IMO (and their standards are pretty low).

SynthSmith on September 3, 2008 at 4:58 PM

ROFL! However the creators intended it, this was very funny because it hit kernels of truth about these two. McCain threw a risky Hail Mary and got a touchdown. Palin is a blunt, brilliant do-er. Together, they’re fabulous, and they’re going to beat the wimpy Obama bin Biden team. Go John! Go Sarah!

MochaLite on September 3, 2008 at 5:07 PM

Connie on September 3, 2008 at 4:44 PM

Thanks. I was trying to look it up and got nothing with all of my guesses.

I thought it was hilarious. Not lol hilarious, but I liked it.

stupid unfunny liberal hitjob. at least pricks like stewart or colbert can occasionally get a laugh out of me. – Darth Executor on September 3, 2008 at 3:40 PM

Au contraire, Darth. It’s hysterically funny because it enunciates an undercurrent of truth.

Many years ago SNL did a skit about Ronald Regan featuring Phil Hartman as a doddering Gipper when strangers where in the Oval Office and a brilliant mastermind when he was alone with his staff. I’m sure the SNL folks thought they were being cute, as if to say, “Yeah, get real, he actually is a dunce” when they actually portrayed what history eventually demonstrated: that Reagan was remarkably intelligent.

Same thing here. It may not have been her intention to do so, but Lisa Nova paid a great compliment to Sarah’cuda in much the same manner that Hartman did to Dutch Reagan.
