Sarah The Surreal


Sarah, at home with her pets...


I was gonna lay off Sarah Palin... but God bless her, she is a comedic gift that keeps on giving...

Part of me... albeit a VERY small part of me really wished Palin would have become our president... if only for a few more priceless moments like this...

There she stands, giving an interview, while a man slaughters turkeys right behind her...

Watch the video, but beware... some of you may feel squeamish...




Some people may find this type of uninhibited behavior refreshing... I am not of that ilk... The next time we see her give an interview there might be some local yokel behind her shitting in a bucket...

"Hello Sarah" he waves, "How ya doin?"

Palin cheerfully responds, "Oh hi Joe, say... that must be your friend there in the wood chipper."

Just imagine what a Sarah Palin presidency would have looked like... Caribou, gutted and hanging all along the White House lawn... a duck blind in the rose garden... Todd shooting squirrels from the Lincoln Bedroom... moose chili served in the White House cafeteria... a salt lick in the east colonnade... orange hunting vests on the Secret Service detail... the pelts of dead varmints strewn about the oval office... and of course, lastly, who could deny the appeal of a 15 course roadkill buffet par excellence for the foreign dignitaries...?

As macabre as this was, I couldn't help but burst out laughing... I'm still not convinced that this isn't just another SNL skit... She babbles on and on while the poor writhing bird at her immediate rear buys the farm...

Does she not have a publicist, a handler? Is there no one in her midst who is remotely professional? Could no one have kindly asked the farmer to stop the culling of gobblers while they were rolling the cameras...?

Or is this just part of her endearing shtick? Is this her sanguine pitch to the hunting and fishing crowd to let them know she is one of them?

Well if that is the case, why not try this... hand her a rifle, put her in a red, white and blue bikini and have her roll around the slick killing floor of a slaughterhouse moaning "Drill, baby drill!!!?"

"You betcha, dat awda git 'em reel 'cited!!!"

Yup, good ole Sarah... a REAL American...

Look, I'm not naive... I know the bird I'll be wolfing down next Thursday likely met with the same gruesome fate... but Jesus lady... show a little decorum... please?

You can take Sarah out of Alaska, but you'll never get the Alaska out of Sarah...

Wow. Thanks for the enlightenment. Thank God I'm a democrat! :)

"Surreal"... that is exactly the right word. (I would also have accepted "Absurd", "Mind-boggling", or "Certifiable.")

I didn't watch the video (delicate sensibilities, you know), and I'm not sure the YouTube freeze-frame is enough to convince me you're not actually making this up. This is from SNL after all, right? Or a clever fake? You're joking, right? Big jokester? She didn't actually do an interview in front of turkey slaughter. Nope.

I quite enjoyed your depiction of a Palin White House. No way Obama can provide that level of entertainment or induce that much incredulity.

(Gotta love targeted advertising. Lookit the ads that appeared next to this blog. [Okay, the last one is not relevant to this content, but The Internet knows I am a woman so its duty is to tell me to lose weight. Though if I wanted to do that, I could just kill my appetite by watching that video...])

What if she had decided to break with tradition and have a roast instead of a turkey??

O_o

Maybe her people figured no one would pay attention to what she was actually saying with that distraction in the background? I know I found a hard time catching how silly some of the things sounded with a Turkey in it's death throws on camera.
