  • Self-deprecating Republicans?

    As polls the world over indicate that this election is in the bag for Obama, after three unsuccessful debates for the Republicans, and most of all after we were all proven right about the poor choice of Republican running mate, it looks like the battered Republicans may make one last attempt to win hearts and minds: by making fun of themselves. Sarah Palin is set to appear in a satirical comedy sketch about herself on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, after the show gained new popularity with star Tina Fey’s effortless satires of the governor. And what better way to redeem oneself than to mock oneself? It may even make her more cute and folksy: “Isn’t that adorable, she’s laughing at herself!” Some may call it ingenious. I call it desperate.

      Yes, the deprecating self-mockery on popular TV shows should come at the end of a political career… oh, hang on…

      I hear many people will be dressing up as Sarah Palin on halloween, scary stuff, its in the bag for Obama.

      She can mock herself all she likes it will not help her.

      At least they ripped her, while giving her the choice to laugh at herself…
