The best Sarah Palin song

#55. With so few days to go to the US presidential election I worry about missing out on all that great Sarah Palin material. Not since Dan Quayle was VP (and that was pre-You Tube) has the position been such cause of amusement. (OK There was that time Dick Cheney mistook his friend for a quail and popped a cap in his a**). For anyone who doesn’t recall Quayle he was famous for that potato incident and for saying things like “it’s great to be in Latin America, I am only sorry that I don’t speak Latin” and for addressing some hurricane refugees taking refuge on a beach by starting his speech with “Hello, happy campers”.
The title of “Sarah Palin video of the day” must go to the re-make of The Plain White T’s “Hey There Delilah”. Almost better than the original version.
* Be warned. This video may contain some bad language.

Sarah Palin goes head to head with Tina Fey

#51. Lament that the US elections may soon be over along with much cause for amusement. Top billing this week goes to Caribou Barbie Sarah Palin who actually appeared with Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin on a skit for Saturday Night Live. She gets one point for having a sense of humour (but only one).

Alec Baldwin, Fey’s co-star in her TV show 30 Rock, also made an appearance. Unmissable stuff. Wait a few seconds for the video to load…

Gina Gershon gets Sarah Palin, and her gun

#39. Write about Sarah Palin. And then write about her some more. It’s irresistable – the five kids, the pregnant teen, the caribou, that hairstyle, that running mate, that bikini with the matching shotgun. And I am not the only one who has fallen prey to ms Palin’s charms. Continue reading

Sarah Palin, Zapiro, Pieter de Villiers and that sex tape

#36. Wonder if Sarah Palin may be the mystery woman in SA rugby coach Pieter De Villiers’ sex tape — whose existence is as hard to prove as the Loch Ness monster, birth control in the Palin household, and anyone on the other side of the phone when you call the Department of Home Affairs. Continue reading

Zapiro, Jacob Zuma and Sarah Palin – The lines are drawn

#35. Re-enter my world. Back in Joburg all anyone can talk about is Zapiro’s cartoon that appeared in the Sunday Times. The image of ANC president Jacob Zuma unbuckling his pants while members of the alliance — the ANC Youth League, SA Communist Party and labour federation COSATU — hold down the figure of Justice and the ANC says “Go for it, Boss” is in a word, shocking!
