Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton cross party lines to battle sexism 'Live, from New York'
Let's relive last night's classic "Saturday Night Live" skit.
Tina Fey as Sarah Palin: "Good evening, my fellow Americans. I was so excited when I was told Senator Clinton and I would be addressing you tonight."
Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton: "And I was told I would be addressing you alone."
(See the entire skit transcript after the jump.)
I've watched Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's "Saturday Night Live" impersonations of Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton at least five times since last night. It just doesn't get old.
"I can see Russia from my house!" Priceless. It's also about time the two politicians tackle all the sexism run amok.
Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton: "But Sarah, one thing we can agree on is that sexism can never be allowed to permeate an American election."
Tina Fey as Sarah Palin: "So please, stop photoshopping my head on sexy bikini pictures."
Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton: "And stop saying I have cankles."
Tina Fey as Sarah Palin: "Don't refer to me as a 'MILF.'"
Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton: "And don't refer to me as a 'FLURJ.' I Googled what it stands for and I do not like it."
But perhaps the most shining moment is when Clinton launches into serious speechifying on hard work, experience and qualifications while Palin steals her thunder by mugging for the camera like a beauty queen, finally cocking an imaginary rifle.
This skit -- and hopefully many more -- are sure to be the best part of the whole election season. Lord knows we could use a laugh.
Speaking of which, not to slight Tina Fey in any way, but knowing Fey is busy with "30 Rock" and a feature film career, we wonder if "SNL" creator and exec producer Lorne Michaels, head writer Seth Meyers and director Don Roy King might consider allowing cast member Kristen Wiig to sub for Fey, if necessary. Wiig delivers an aces flat American accent and certainly looks the part. Not to mention that Wiig's Target lady skits are the embodiment of Sarah Palin if the governor hadn't ended up an Alaskan politician.
Anyway, we're sure we're not the only one who have Tivoed "SNL" for the next two months. Of course, if Fey, errr ... Palin wins, it may cease to be quite so funny.
One question, what's a flurge or is it FLURJ?
