Tina Fey As Sarah Palin: Katie Couric SNL Skit (VIDEO)

Huffington Post |   September 27, 2008 11:49 PM

Tina Fey returned to Saturday Night Live to reprise her widely hailed impersonation of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The sketch focused on an interview Palin recently gave to CBS News’ Katie Couric, including an exchange about Russia. Amy Poehler, who played Hillary Clinton in the previous skit, plays the role of Katie Couric. See the skit below.

FEY AS PALIN: “Like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this. We’re saying, ‘Hey, why bail out Fanny and Freddie and not me?’ But ultimately what the bailout does is, help those that are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy to help…uh…it’s gotta be all about job creation, too. Also, too, shoring up our economy and putting Fannie and Freddy back on the right track and so healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reigning in spending…’cause Barack Obama, y’know…has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans, also, having a dollar value meal at restaurants. That’s gonna help. But one in five jobs being created today under the umbrella of job creation. That, you know…Also…”

Some more highlights:

POEHLER AS COURIC: “On foreign policy, I want to give you one more chance to explain your claim that you have foreign policy experience based on Alaska’s proximity to Russia. What did you mean by that?”
FEY AS PALIN: “Well, Alaska and Russia are only separated by a narrow maritime border. (using her hands to illustrate) You got Alaska here, this right here is water, and this is Russia. So, we keep an eye on them.”

POEHLER AS COURIC: “And how do you do that exactly?”

FEY AS PALIN: “Every morning, when Alaskans wake up, one of the first things they do, is look outside to see if there are any Russians hanging around. And if there are, you gotta go up to them and ask, ‘What are you doing here?’ and if they can’t give you a good reason, it’s our responsibility to say, you know, ‘Shoo! Get back over there!’

POEHLER AS COURIC: “Senator McCain attempted to shut down his political campaign this week in order to deal with the economic crisis. What’s your opinion of this potential 700 billion dollar bailout?”

FEY AS PALIN: “Like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this. We’re saying, ‘Hey, why bail out Fanny and Freddie and not me?’ But ultimately what the bailout does is, help those that are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy to help…uh…it’s gotta be all about job creation, too. Also, too, shoring up our economy and putting Fannie and Freddy back on the right track and so healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reigning in spending…’cause Barack Obama, y’know…has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans, also, having a dollar value meal at restaurants. That’s gonna help. But one in five jobs being created today under the umbrella of job creation. That, you know…Also…”

POEHLER AS COURIC: “What lessons have you learned from Iraq and how specifically, would you spread democracy abroad?”

FEY AS PALIN: “Specifically, we would make every effort possible to spread democracy abroad to those who want it.”

POEHLER AS COURIC: “Yes, but specifically what would you do?”

FEY AS PALIN: “We’re gonna promote freedom. Usher in democratic values and ideals. And fight terror-loving terrorists.”

POEHLER AS COURIC: “But again, and not to belabor the point. One specific thing.”

(several seconds of FEY and POEHLER staring at each other)

FEY AS PALIN: “Katie, I’d like to use one of my lifelines.”

POEHLER AS COURIC: “I’m sorry?”

FEY AS PALIN: “I want to phone a friend.”

POEHLER AS COURIC: “You don’t have any lifelines.”

FEY AS PALIN: “Well in that case I’m gonna just have to get back to you!”

McCain Says He’ll Work On Bailout Via Cell Phone?!

McCain Now Says He’ll Negotiate The Bailout Via Cell Phone

Crooks & Liars- By: Nicole Belle on Saturday, September 27th, 2008 at 7:00 PM – PDT

CBS News:

Even though his campaign is no longer suspended, John McCain is staying in Washington this weekend to keep working on the bailout legislation. He will not be visiting Capital Hill, however, preferring to work out of his campaign office.

“He can effectively do what he needs to do by phone,” said senior adviser Mark Salter. “He’s calling members on both sides, talking to people in the administration, helping out as he can.”

WTF?  The financial crisis was SO important that he had to “suspend” his campaign to come to Washington, but now he can contribute to the negotiations over the cell phone, but he’s going to stay in Washington instead of going out to campaign?  Does any of this make sense?

I’m curious, will any of his suggestions for this bailout include a federal spending freeze he advocated last night?  Has he considered the ramifications? Will the unworkability of the Republican plan make McCain blink?

Will Giuliani Replace Palin??

Rudy Giuliani: Takeover for Palin

Sat Sep 27, 2008 at 04:44:10 PM PDT

Did anyone catch this yesterday:

12:00 Noon. McCain now boarding plane at DCA with Cindy, Salter, Rudy Giuliani, wife Judith, and other aides plus pool.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/…

WHERE IS SARAH? Why is McCain traveling with Rudy? Thoughts?

UPDATE:
go to: www.drudgereport.com and vote for obama re last nights debate.

It’s obvious to the GOP establishment that they have a problem on their hands. Sarah mania is dying. Exposed to the sunlight of actual questions, her credibility is going down the toilet, along with that of John McCain. So what to do? BRING ON THE MAYOR.

Say what you will about Rudy. But he is (strangely) loved by independents. The reason he is NOT the nominee is that he was too left for the right wing GOP. But at this point, are they desperate enough to go for it, all to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and throw mama from the train, and bring on someone like Rudy to snatch “momentum”?

With the VP Debate this upcoming week, dont be SHOCKED to see some “dramatic” move by McCain. Just as this week brought us his “campaign suspension” and other shenanigans, my prediction is there is a 50/50 chance that RUDY is on board by weeks end.

Alaskans for Truth Rally in Anchorage (9/27/08) PHOTOS

Alaskans for Truth Rally in Anchorage, Alaska

Sat Sep 27, 2008 at 05:02:59 PM PDT

Today hundreds of Alaskans converged at the Park Strip in downtown Anchorage, Alaska to protest Governor Sarah Palin’s absence from the state and her lack of the transparency she promised in her campaign for governor.

The ad-hoc group Alaskans for Truth held a rally today in downtown Anchorage to tell the world that Alaskans are angry with their governor – Governor Sarah Palin – for abandoning her responsibilities in their state for the Vice-Presidential campaign trail. Palin had promised that she would still run the state while campaigning, however, she has been missing in action ever since.

During her gubernatorial campaign, Palin also promised to be transparent in her dealings as governor and now she has allowed the McCain campaign to not only intercept her business dealings in Alaska but to also interfere with the investigation into Palin’s possible wrongdoing in the Troopergate investigations.

Bolstered by the unexpected success of the Alaska Women Reject Palin rally of a few weeks back, the crowd today was large, vocal and once again peaceful. Progressive radio talk show personality Shannyn Moore was one of a number of speakers at the rally as was Alaskan poet, songwriter and activist Libby Roderick who led the crowd in song.

Where Was Palin Last Night? At A Bar In Philadelphia! (VIDEO)

By- Suzie-Q @ 4:30 PM MST

Associated Press--Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, seen with Ed Snider (right), chairman of Comcast-Spectacor, visited the Irish Pub, on 20th and Walnut streets, last night before the start of the presidential debate.

Palin grabs a seat at the bar

But her amorous fans were definitely ready to let the moose-hunting Alaska governor rule.

“I expect her to be president of the United States one day,” said Suzanne Haney, the Republican leader for the 2nd Ward in South Philadelphia, who gave Palin a $2 bill for luck.

Palin appeared at the bar on 20th and Walnut streets last night to shake hands with her fans for about an hour before the first presidential debate. While the crowd inside was friendly, hundreds of people lined the street outside in protest with signs that read things like “Palin is Santorum With Lipstick.”

Palin did not take questions from reporters nor did she talk policy. She posed for pictures and chatted with supporters, many of whom were from outside the city limits, and made an approximately minute-long statement.

Holy Joe, Say It Ain’t So… ;)

Holy Joe Lieberman

Poll: Rell Fares Well; Lieberman, Dodd Do Poorly

Connecticut voters have soured on Sens. Joseph I. Lieberman and Christopher J. Dodd, but Gov. M. Jodi Rell‘s popularity has withstood the state’s deteriorating financial picture, a new poll shows.

In the presidential race, Barack Obama maintains a lead over John McCain among likely voters in Connecticut, 49 percent to 35 percent.

The telephone survey of 500 people was conducted Sept. 19 to 23 by Pulsar Research and Consulting of Vernon. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

When asked to rate the jobs they are doing as senator, Lieberman and Dodd each drew higher negatives than positives, with Lieberman faring the worst, said Chris Barnes, the poll’s director.

Fifty-four percent of residents rated Lieberman negatively, saying he is doing a fair (26 percent) or poor (28 percent) job. Thirty-seven percent viewed him positively, giving an excellent (10 percent) or good (27 percent) rating.

The poll found that Lieberman, a registered Democrat who relied on Republicans and unaffiliated voters for his re-election in 2006, has lost much of his independent base.

Sixty-one percent of Republicans viewed him favorably, compared with 23 percent of Democrats and 37 percent of independents.

He was viewed unfavorably by 30 percent of Republicans, 69 percent of Democrats and 53 percent of independents.

“He’s really polling as a weak Republican, rather than a wounded Democrat,” said Barnes, a former pollster at the University of Connecticut.

In fact, Lieberman’s ratings by Democrats are nearly identical to Dodd’s marks by Republicans.

Lieberman’s ties to the Democratic Party have been growing weaker since he won re-election as a petitioning candidate.

He endorsed McCain in December and was seriously considered as McCain’s running mate in August. Three weeks ago in a speech at the GOP convention, Lieberman described Obama as unprepared to be president.

Dodd’s job performance was rated excellent by 11 percent, good by 32 percent, fair by 26 percent and poor by 20 percent.

And then there is the governor. She was rated positively by 64 percent of residents and negatively by 32 percent.

Rell’s numbers were high among all groups: Her performance was rated good or excellent by 74 percent of Republicans, 61 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of independents.

“In tough fiscal times, governors usually have a tough ride,” Barnes said. “So Rell’s high ratings in the face of the state’s precarious budget situation are impressive.”

In early July, Quinnipiac University reported a similar finding: Her job performance was approved by 65 percent and disapproved by 23 percent.
