Inevitable: Freaky deaky Taiwanese animators take on Palin

posted at 9:39 pm on July 23, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via Ace. Sure, it’s unfair, but give ‘em credit: It’s precisely accurate to the spirit of the coverage she gets from American media. (There’s even a “teabagger” reference!) Besides, they’ve already established their nonpartisan bona fides with their timeless series about a certain angry Democratic “sex poodle” allegedly demanding to, er, have his second chakra released.

The only reference I don’t get: Sarah and Todd smoking up at home in Wasilla. Did I miss that story at some point? Or is it merely an allusion to this? Damn these language barriers.

OK, my credit for this Taiwanese team has dropped a few notches.

Electrongod on July 23, 2010 at 9:42 PM

Is that Piper shooting at the end?

exception on July 23, 2010 at 9:43 PM

These guy’s plays a dangerous game.
Sarah will return Taiwan to china in a hurry..

the_nile on July 23, 2010 at 9:44 PM

I some how have to put partial blame for this on AP. There was this “winking” thing going on throughout the video.

Electrongod on July 23, 2010 at 9:44 PM

Horrible but funny. I was just saying how she is more of a man than Obama will ever be and seeing her kick his ass was great.

nazarioj001 on July 23, 2010 at 9:45 PM

At least they got the ending right.

Jocundus on July 23, 2010 at 9:46 PM

That Obama character is one lucky dude!

Decriminalization of MJ.

besser tot als rot on July 23, 2010 at 9:48 PM

C’mon folks, she kicks Obama’s butt in mud wrestling then wins the whitehouse. Happy ending.

Bonus: Her kids fire automatic weapons in the house!

AUINSC on July 23, 2010 at 9:48 PM

looks like they are predicting a win for Palin in 2012 LOL

painfulTruthDisciple on July 23, 2010 at 9:49 PM

Awesome! She was popping Grizzlies one minute, got rammed by Obama’s chopper, parachuted into a rally, kicked Obama’s ass and still had time to go home and catch a buzz with her husband while Piper played with her toys.

Where can I get me one of those?

Guardian on July 23, 2010 at 9:50 PM

Smoking Pot and mud wrestling Obama hard to top that.

daveinguelph on July 23, 2010 at 9:50 PM

I have to agree with Maetenloch: teh awesome.

I think she once said that she cant do what clinton did and deny she inhaled.

Its less offensive then mainstream coverage.

I think I might have found this funnier if it didn’t so closely resemble what the media is already selling.

LOL she would totally take Obama in mud-wrestling.

carbon_footprint on July 23, 2010 at 10:17 PM

Obama doesnt mudwrestle he just sits back and lets the MSM sling mud for him

William Amos on July 23, 2010 at 10:18 PM

I really enjoyed that, especially Piper shooting off the assault rifle in-doors. High-larious!

Kensington on July 23, 2010 at 10:23 PM

That’s the first one I’ve watched. Are they all so all over the place?

RedNewEnglander on July 23, 2010 at 10:35 PM

Hmm. Taiwan or Taiwantpalin?

Ugly on July 23, 2010 at 10:37 PM

At least there isn’t a video of Rahm & friends in the shower with a bar of soap.

txag92 on July 23, 2010 at 10:39 PM

Sarah would DESTROY Obama in a mud-wrestle challenge.

This is irrefutable truth.

This is totally awesome. If that was me, I would be so honored. Think about it: freaking Taiwanese animators think Palin is the hottest story out there, and she hasn’t held office or ran for office in how long, a couple of years?

NOBODY is bigger or more famous than Sarah Palin. Wow.

JustTruth101 on July 23, 2010 at 10:51 PM

Piper firing automatic weapons are enough to close the deal for me:

A classic!

Of course, the mudwrestling match with Obama at the end is a nice touch.

Great catch. The left ALWAYS tells us who they fear by attacking those they fear the most. Apparently Sarah makes them lose their minds.

JustTruth101 on July 23, 2010 at 11:00 PM

A pole-dancing Sarah!

Can’t beat that for fund raising. Next, we’ll see Obamao holding $30,000-a-plate dinners at Chippendales.

“The only reference I don’t get: Sarah and Todd smoking up at home in Wasilla. Did I miss that story at some point? Or is it merely an allusion to this? Damn these language barriers.”

..it’s just a juvenile, zit-infested fantasy perpetrated by some offshore folks. This series is getting so beyond tedious. I mean, even the AlGore skit was a total snooze.

This and the Shirley Sherrod story are best viewed in the rear-view mirror.

The War Planner on July 23, 2010 at 11:14 PM

That’s marvelous. These people need an exclusive contract with Hot Air. :)

Loved Piper with the assault rifle.

Seven Seas on July 24, 2010 at 12:04 AM

Lol I get the impression that clip was more about making fun of the MSM media and the unhinged way it portrays the Palin’s than actually making fun of the Palin’s themselves.

Hellrider on July 24, 2010 at 12:07 AM

I actually like the way it almooost gets the Ace of Spades HQ lifestyle down. Missing some booze and some hobo hunting but other than that, its almost there.

What a waste of time and effort! (still! gotta love the mud wrestling bit….)

I swear I remember her talking about trying pot when it used to be legal in Alaska. This would have been during the campaign.

I found this reference:

lizzie beth on July 24, 2010 at 1:12 AM

Meh. I’ve lived in Taiwan for a few years, and can’t get past the irony of them mocking Sarah’s use of “refudiate.” Not when you come from a land filled with “Winnie the Poop” shirts.

tikvah on July 24, 2010 at 1:28 AM

Freaky deaky Taiwanese animators are sexist.

Better than most of Hollywood’s tired attempts at Palin humor – but sexist nonetheless.

Man with all of these hit pieces on Sarah, I wonder if a certain Mr Pundit’s name might be found on Journolist!

I’m still waiting for some in depth coverage of her stance on the Ground Zero Mosque. She’s standing with the people.

Willard, Huck, Newt, T-Paw …. crickets.

Sarah and Todd smoking up at home in Wasilla. Did I miss that story at some point? Or is it merely an allusion to this? Damn these language barriers.

The video just said that there’re rumors of Bristol and Levi appearing in a reality show. I suppose that’s what the Taiwanese imagine how such a show would look.

year_of_the_dingo on July 24, 2010 at 6:27 AM

I like this better.

hillbillyjim on July 24, 2010 at 7:36 AM

Unlike some other tedious and lame attempts, this is actually peerless satire. For those who have not been following the news, Sarah did not actually defeat Obama in mud-wrestling or parachute into a rally. And as sexy as she is, she has not raised money by pole-dancing. Oh, and an electronic device probably will not short-circuit because you put “refudiate” into it.

This perfectly skewers the Left’s childish caricature of Sarah, while perfectly capturing Sarah’s appealing, good humored, optimistic can-do attitude.

In other words, this is the sort of subtle, hilarious comedy you cannot often find on the right.

Another thing: this is just as hilarious as the Taiwan Algore lampoon, and just as conservative in its pov. People might not recognize that, because of the tedious and obvious stuff that so often passes for humor on the right.

Moonzoo on July 24, 2010 at 7:44 AM

hillbillyjim on July 24, 2010 at 7:36 AM

hillbillyjim: That was a hoot,lmao,haha,thanks!!:)

canopfor on July 24, 2010 at 7:54 AM

I just wanted to add: there is one consistent, hilarious practitioner of peerless satire from a conservative perspective, and that is Phil Hendrie. He would not agree to the conservative label, and he does make fun of some conservatives or conservative positions, but over all he has the most biting and side-splitting satire from a conservative pov, remarkably capturing the hypocrisies, irrationality, illogic and hatred of the Left.

Hendrie is a true satirical genius, maybe the only true satirical genius in America, and he is probably unknown to most conservatives. Actually, my guess is that most conservatives would not get his conservative pov.

Moonzoo on July 24, 2010 at 8:00 AM

Funny… with a happy ending too!

petefrt on July 24, 2010 at 8:07 AM

gary4205 on July 24, 2010 at 2:27 AM

That was a bold ‘tweet’. I agree with her 100% – but it was very bold.

Very refreshing from a high profile 2012 candidate. I was a little surprised the LSM didn’t jump on that a little more aggressively. Baiting by Sarah and the LSM only nibbled? It crossed my mind.

Even if she doesn’t run or isn’t successful in 2012 she has found a synergy with the Tea Party and tapped a general feeling among most voters to change the direction the country is heading.

If this was a guy he would be getting immense accolades. Because it is Sarah Palin her accomplishments went largely ignored at HA in favor of more recycled sexist pot shots.

Mr Purple on July 24, 2010 at 8:26 AM

Let’s hit the “reset” button on China by giving them back Taiwan!

HondaV65 on July 24, 2010 at 8:42 AM

What? No making fun of their Down Syndrome baby? Someone must have been asleep in the animation studio to miss that chance.

i thought Taiwan animation was better than that? Didn’t look like Palin at all.

ctmom on July 24, 2010 at 9:24 AM

In the end, she beat the First Whimp at mud-wrasslin and took the Oval Office with her kids doing celebratory M4 firing.

Works for me.

hawkdriver on July 24, 2010 at 9:33 AM

Do these videos come with joystick controls, so that after gaining a certain number of points, you can arm Sarah with the Xeonic Blasterball Supercharge Death Ray Gun and turn her loose on the next DNC convention?

Brad, in all fairness to the ones who weren’t amused, can’t you concede that tastes in what in “over the line” humor wise differs from person to person?

Wouldn’t you also think that the way Conservatives take a beating almost every day from the media and entertainment industry, that some just have little or no tolerance for it these day? (especially in light of the revelations with some of the journolist exchanges)

hawkdriver on July 24, 2010 at 10:35 AM

FINALLY, an accurate portrayal of the Palin family!

I like the fact that moron Levi is shirtless for no reason.

Speedwagon82 on July 24, 2010 at 10:50 AM

Can’t these Taiwanese draw “white” eyes? I think the skydiving would be a nice touch for the 2012 GOP Convention.

Mr Purple on July 24, 2010 at 8:26 AM

It’s not sexist, it’s elitist.

I’m noticing a trend here at HA I don’t like. Trash conservatives. Allah who obviously doesn’t like Sarah has gone TMZ one her, because he knows she is the gold standard, and his beloved squishes are done.

That’s OK though, when she is sworn in as POTUS in 2013 that will be delicious enough, but seeing watching AP’s head explode will be sweet desert.

gary4205 on July 24, 2010 at 1:12 PM

I think that they are mocking the media’s portrayal of Palin rather than mocking her. She wins in the end, “refudiating” the liberals and Obama.

My advice to the Taiwanese is that they should remember if Palin ever does win the WH, she will be the one deciding whether they will be joining the mainland, IYKWIMAIKYD.

If I may make one request of them, no animation of Obama plugging the damn hole.
