I love this woman

October 19, 2008

Sarah Palin’s performance on Saturday Night Live, one of the numerous Oldstream Media cesspits of liberal slime, was absolutely delightful.  Sundries has both videos, plus the lyrics of the “Alaska Rap” song that was performed.  Sundries posted the videos in reverse order — the top one on the page actually was done later in the program than the second video on the page (that one was the opening sequence for the program).

Some conservative bloggers are disappointed that Gov. Palin participated in mocking herself, but I think she was wonderful.  It takes a strong person to do that, and the Gov. was obviously enjoying herself, especially during the “Weekend Update” segment with the rap song.  Just by being there, obviously relaxed and enjoying the experience, she showed everyone — liberals and  Real-Life Americans alike — that she is bigger than the liberal narrative about her.  She disarmed the mockery, both during that performance and for the future.  Tina Fey’s impersonation will never look quite right again.  Crazy to enter the lair of the enemy?  Nay, rather, crazy like a fox, I say.  I love watching strong, confident women doing their thing without anger and bitterness — and Gov. Palin does it so well.

    Thank you so much for linking to my blog, Sundries. Just the tiniest correction — it isn’t the Sundries Shack, which belongs to my colleague Jimmy.

    Tina Fey’s impersonation will never look quite right again.

    I stated exactly the same thing in my post. The Village Voice cherry-picked up this remark, and made it seem as if I had criticised Fey’s talent in impersonating Palin. Not at all. It’s that when you have the real Palin regaining control of her narrative after the VP debate, the second one seems almost defanged, if you will.

    I have heard that some conservative bloggers were not pleased that Governor Palin went on the show, but I think that’s silly. If there is one thing Americans can appreciate, it is courage and a sense of self-deprecation.

    Sorry about that, Victoria. I corrected it.
