Video: “Red Eye” exposes the real Sarah Palin

posted at 5:25 pm on October 10, 2008 by Allahpundit

Written by Greg Gutfeld, making his bid for a job blogging at The Atlantic or reporting for the LA Times, presuming he’s willing to mangle quotes and attribute them to Palin. Watch and let the horrible truth wash over you: Sullivan was right.

If you don’t have the patience for Fox’s annoying Postage-Stamp-o-vision embed, try the full-size version here.

Hahaha Matt Damon

First Betty White and now this?

Appalling!

Whats next? ONN?

csdeven on October 10, 2008 at 5:33 PM

And Damn! I hadn’t seen the beauty contest before! :O

If you’re quick, you’ll pick up a lot of subtleties. Pretty good.

Big John on October 10, 2008 at 5:36 PM

What an annoying video. Was this supposed to be informative, satirical or funny? Whatever the purpose was, it failed . Bye the way, what is Red Eye?

I watched the entire video. Will this get me into heaven because I have suffered enough here on earth?

Tommy_G on October 10, 2008 at 5:36 PM

In a “normal” election cycle, it’d be inconceivable that such a ruthless woman could ever be considered for veep. Not even the rethuglikkkans are that evil. Surely the illuminati must be responsible.

Hunting abundant creatures instead of the more challenging endangered ones is like picking on the ugly kid who gets bad haircuts from his mom. Totally unfair. And racist.

innominatus on October 10, 2008 at 5:38 PM

It was satirical. And like much of Red Eye, not very funny. :P

lorien1973 on October 10, 2008 at 5:38 PM

This sounds like the post GG did at Huffpo. It’s terrific narrated. I love the “alarmingly she was born’. Gutfield is awesome.

Spirit of 1776 on October 10, 2008 at 5:38 PM

That was…lengthy.

No. That was just the warm-up. Next is the real test. Living though 10 or more years of intense BO.

Lol – “serial killers killing serially”

Spirit of 1776 on October 10, 2008 at 5:40 PM

I would love to see Greg on Mahers show, he would really be a hoot. He ain’t afraid to be as rowdy as he needs to be. Plus they always have the hottest conservative women on Red Eye.

redshirt on October 10, 2008 at 5:41 PM

That is a clever, well written piece of fiction.

It pokes fun at those tin foil hat wearing, hate filled, misogynist Sarah Palin haters suffering from Palin Derangement Syndrome, to be sure.

Give the writer an award!

William2006 on October 10, 2008 at 5:44 PM

To qualify for The Atlantic, it needs a few more clips of Hitler.

Speedwagon82 on October 10, 2008 at 5:44 PM

HaHa. I only recently started watching Red Eye again. It has improved a lot. I actually chuckle now and then.

kahall on October 10, 2008 at 5:45 PM

Simply awesome, though some liberal will think it’s all true.

Torch on October 10, 2008 at 5:45 PM

Bill is tedious. That’s usually why I don’t watch.

lorien1973 on October 10, 2008 at 5:46 PM

Speaking of serial killers,

This morning there were dozens of police cruisers, as well as a CSI portable lab, and dozens of detectives at our local supermarket.

It appears that someone discovered a very large butcher’s knife imbedded into a box of Cheerios.

Now the police are looking for a Cereal Killer!

Wow, no wonder the libs find her so scary! No offense, Matt Damon!

Which real? This was pretty “brill”, to borrow from a friend.

very long.

What did you mean about Sullivan being right?

Mommypundit on October 10, 2008 at 5:51 PM

Wow.

Olberman would be jealous.

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 5:53 PM

I’m howling! This is great stuff… No offense Matt Damon!

hburns on October 10, 2008 at 5:54 PM

Genius.

Too bad his show isn’t this good.

Buy Danish on October 10, 2008 at 5:55 PM

I would love to see Greg on Mahers show…

redshirt on October 10, 2008 at 5:41 PM

Please. I wouldn’t sentence anyone to appear no Maher’s show. I hate that guy.

Tennman on October 10, 2008 at 5:55 PM

I hope she gets to see this, I’m sure she could always use a good laugh…Greg puts all those lame SNL sketches in the shade.

surrounded on October 10, 2008 at 5:58 PM

hahah I thought it was funny.

becki51758 on October 10, 2008 at 5:58 PM

Tommy_G on October 10, 2008 at 5:36 PM

Satire. Imagine one of the 527′s or Olbermann at MSNBC doing an expose on Palin – filled with BS innuendo. It’s mocking them, not her.

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 5:59 PM

Please. I wouldn’t sentence anyone to appear no Maher’s show. I hate that guy.

Tennman on October 10, 2008 at 5:55 PM

Normally,I would agree, but I think Greg would enjoy the fight. No clear thinking serious conservative should go on it. Greg isn’t serious.

redshirt on October 10, 2008 at 6:00 PM

Parody with extra whipped cream.

T J Green on October 10, 2008 at 6:01 PM

For those who aren’t familiar with Red Eye, at the very bottom of the Fox News website you can click on Red Eye and see some of their video clips.

Well, I’m convinced. Of what I don’t know.

manwithblackhat on October 10, 2008 at 6:06 PM

Saw it last evening (this morning). Is Jon Scott the moderator?

I feel for Greg–being shouted down by Obamists on his own show. (Yes, you did, Bill.)

baldilocks on October 10, 2008 at 6:13 PM

Our side is so much more witty. Loved it.

SouthernGent on October 10, 2008 at 6:19 PM

That was terrific!

“…schools of learning…” Funny. (Then again, those are NOT the kind that OhBummer and his sidekick Ayers had in mind when they blew all of those bucks.)

I’m absolutely stunned,this is perplexing!

And now,I’m so,so confused,I,I didn’t know,
that Sarah* didn’t use utensils,like a knife
and fork,I mean,isn’t a person who eats with
their bare hands,its,its so barbaric*,I mean,
think about it,this might be the person who
is going to be second in command,of the Free
world,a barbaric*,it just sounds,like crazy,
I mean………….(Snark!)Haha.

*(canopfor,absolutely regrets using Sarah and
barbaric in the same sentence,and will be
dealt with in due time!)

Jim Treacher on October 10, 2008 at 6:02 PM

Wonderful addition to this page.

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 6:37 PM

You know what’s really sad, and I’m being totally serious (as cereal as Al Gore about MBP) – You could post this at Kos and tell them that one of their lefty pals produced it, and millions of numskulls would take this seriously and think it “reveals” some secrets, etc.

Sadly, Gutfeld beat them to the punch. Bravo, Gut. Especially on the random Marilyn Manson and Planet Unicorn cameos.

Oh and one last thing. I know it’s said in a joking way here, but it’s something that has been joked about repeatedly, and used as a supposedly serious point by P. Diddy, but it still annoys me – The whole “There aren’t black people in Alaska”.

That’s crap! There is significantly higher percentage of blacks in Alaska than Hawaii (where The One grew up!!!). So seriously people, drop this nonsense. And I live in VT, I know a thing or two about a lack of black people. It’s .5 percent here, which gives us a total of about 3,000 blacks (a large chunk of which are Sudanese refugees, btw.) BTW, isn’t it interesting that the second whitest state in the nation is also arguably the most liberal? Hmmm. And isn’t it funny that we didn’t hear anyone bitching about Howard Dean coming from a state without blacks when he looked like he was a shoe in for the nomination (or after he took over as party chairman).

RightWinged on October 10, 2008 at 6:38 PM

Our side is so much more witty. Loved it.
SouthernGent on October 10, 2008 at 6:19 PM

I never watch this show, except for the youtube vids. I think the first time I ever heard of ‘red eye’, it was a clip of Julia Bandaras joining them to mock the Elliot Sptizer hooker (notice he’s not spent a day in jail for habitually breaking the law, not even got his car impounded like some johns do) when Bandaras wore dark sunglasses and they did a side-by-side with the photo of his hooker.

So why did they waste time and money with the half hour news hour when they can use some of this talent.

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 6:41 PM

You could post this at Kos and tell them that one of their lefty pals produced it, and millions of numskulls would take this seriously and think it “reveals” some secrets, etc.
RightWinged on October 10, 2008 at 6:38 PM

They would need to crap it up with lower quality graphics and video clips. Maybe even copy to VHS and then re-edit with a less authentic sounding voiceover.

But yes, I sort of thought that too. If they wanted to make a fake viral video that the idiots on the left would eat up as a – HEY LOOK AT THIS!! kinda feeding frenzy.

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 6:43 PM

That clip gave me a headache until it got to the bit about Matt Damon which made lol.

Dreadnought223 on October 10, 2008 at 6:47 PM

Love it!

Connie on October 10, 2008 at 6:48 PM

aside from the ‘not very funny-ness’ permeating this vid, I’ve got one other objection: while he was speaking about Palin hunting moose, the clip was showing herds of CARIBOU, not moose…

will journo’s ever get it right?

karmatis on October 10, 2008 at 6:53 PM

How long before the Left starts using this report as a source for their idiocy?

Elizabetty on October 10, 2008 at 6:54 PM

Red Eye is designed to appeal to the cynical youth culture. This is satire. You guys need to watch Red Eye, then you’ll get it. Gutfield is a conservative.

eaglesdontflock on October 10, 2008 at 6:57 PM

In the idea of what the video is, karmatis – it could be intentional. Do you think that they don’t know the difference between a moose and a caribou?

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 6:58 PM

What was that nasty looking stuff in the jars?

whitetop on October 10, 2008 at 7:01 PM

Not sure, but I think the image they used was whatever came up from a google image search for “Bell Jar” I think, whitetop. (the book at the beginning of the video)

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 7:07 PM

It’s almost like watching FrontLine.

I thought it was hilarious. But then again, I love Red Eye’s brand of humor (make of it what you will).

CrazyFool on October 10, 2008 at 7:28 PM

Only bad things about Red Eye is the lesbian that sits in the middle.

V15J on October 10, 2008 at 7:29 PM

I watched the frontline special on Dick Cheney. They need to get a Move Along Dot Org special award for their valiant work for the cause for documentaries.

Yeah, Michael Malone would be heartbroken to lose to them – but, its for a good cause.

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 7:29 PM

They was great.

Hog Wild on October 10, 2008 at 7:32 PM

Hmmm, it was funnier in text version, though I did like the background music.

BadgerHawk on October 10, 2008 at 7:33 PM

Simply awesome, though some liberal will think it’s all true.

rightwingmom on October 10, 2008 at 7:38 PM

You wasted my farking time with….THIS?

ManlyRash on October 10, 2008 at 7:39 PM

Dude, it was funny. Satire from FOX along the lines of a PBS frontline/MSNBC Olbermann hit piece on Palin.

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 7:47 PM

I’ve never done acid, but I feel like I just did.

Allahpundint, you magnificent bastage.

Hening on October 10, 2008 at 7:48 PM

Wow what a pleasure to see really smart satire. Greg Gutfield, our wildest, silliest conservative thinker, has written this video so brilliant and smart, most liberals won’t get it. The dig at Matt Damon at the end is SWEET!!

Psst Matt Damon unicorns aren’t real ;)~

**the voiceover actor is spot on.

sheryl on October 10, 2008 at 7:52 PM

That was funny. Not brilliant, but still funny.

Good job.

LimeyGeek on October 10, 2008 at 7:55 PM

Was that Sarah’s El Camino at 4:18?

I hope not. The MSM will now be wondering if it had astro turf in the bed.

F15Mech on October 10, 2008 at 8:03 PM

I would love to see Greg on Mahers show…

redshirt on October 10, 2008 at 5:41 PM

Please. I wouldn’t sentence anyone to appear no Maher’s show. I hate that guy.

Tennman on October 10, 2008 at 5:55 PM

I think Gutfeld would end up popping Bill a good one…..

Which would just be the best thing ever seen on TV….

BigWyo on October 10, 2008 at 8:16 PM

All that was missing was reference to the 700 new arrivals to Wasilla being either

(a) survivors from the hijacked airliners on 9/11 or

(b) Bristol’s other children.

I don’t add the folks who didn’t show up to work at the WTC on 9/11, but that’s another potentiality.

/sarcasm

thirtypundit on October 10, 2008 at 8:20 PM

Yeah, a good video can only get greater with more input and editing. Nice ideas, thirtypundit. I’m kinda torn as to which one to use. THey could always incorporate both some how.

wise_man on October 10, 2008 at 8:25 PM

The people who didn’t “get” this video are exactly the swing voters Obama is looking for. Go to your master, Obamatrons. He calls you.

Friggin brain-dead idiots.

Coronagold on October 10, 2008 at 8:32 PM

The video was awesomely awesome. If you don’t get it you are a stupid who is really stupid. If humor and witty satire were a balloon, then I would blow it until it popped. And if you don’t agree with me, then you sir are worse then Hitler!!!

Did anyone notice that in the part about moose hunting they kept showing caribou? I know they are in the same deer family, but, a moose is not a caribou.

Troy Rasmussen on October 10, 2008 at 8:59 PM

Bogus attempt at satire. And also annoying.

There was not one cancer reference. Gutfeld should be ashamed.

MsUnderestimated on October 11, 2008 at 3:23 AM

You did not need to say that Gut wrote that.

It screamed “Gut wrote this” all the way to the point where it showed “my lil ponies” where it was stamped on your forehead.

canopfor on October 11, 2008 at 8:40 AM

I hope I am not the only one to notice that the first wave of posters were unhappy because the video stated facts they believe in and associated them with the likes of Gov. Palin.

It proves the ‘Lefties’ are out there watching everything they can, to prove Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are dangerous people who do not deserve to be in charge of your life. Only a person who is going to tell you what to think, what job (task) you take to earn money, who vote for, and how much of that money (they gave you for doing whatever they want you to do) you will give to them to continue doing what they want to you.
