Tina Fey and Amy Poehler go at it once again. Tina and Amy now show Sarah’s Palin’s inability to complete sentences or make any sense OR show any sort of understanding toward what is going on in the world today. Never mind that she (in theory) should know how world events will interact with the United States.
When Sarah was first announced as VP candidate, my mom and I were talking on the phone. She was appalled by the fact that the first female running mate in the history of the US still had to be a hot newbie, instead of someone with a normal look and solid experience. At the time, I defended Palin stating that at least some progress was being made with sexism in general. Halo effect states that the first steps will more likely than not involve someone who physically appeals to the general public. This way, people can overlook that she’s a woman because she’s a good-looking woman. This was it would be an easier situation to accept as a reality. Some with beauty and brains. Unfortunately, as time goes on Palin proves to be no more than a pretty face. Her interviews show no real understanding of US politics. She’s just a parrot. She repeats but doesn’t understand what she’s saying or why she’s saying it. Maybe this is because she’s had less experience for a less significant state than Obama has. Maybe it’s because she had to attend five different universities in order to obtain her bachelors in five years. She comes from a well-to-do family. I don’t think this delay in graduation had to do with having to work while being in school. I sincerely think that it’s because she couldn’t manage interpreting material at a college work level.
Anyway, enough ranting for now. I’m sure I will have a lot more inspiration to do so after the vice-presidential debates this week.
Because I still don’t see how WordPress supports flash, here’s the link for Tina and Amy’s latest Palin play – the Palin and Couric interview.
