Hot, Hot Politics

Governor Sarah Palin, the former beauty queen is being hailed, by some, as the Republican’s secret weapon.

The truth is, no matter what you might think of the woman’s politics, character, experience or moral fiber, she’s easy on the eyes.  

Admittedly, she’s pretty.

And not necessarily in a nasty High School valedictorian or naughty librarian way, although the glasses and that hair up-do of hers, give her an air of wanton studiosity.   Wait, is “studiosity” a real word?   Maybe not, but neither is “nucular” and well, “you betcha” no one is going to tell a real, gosh darn, doggone “meeeeyaverick” anything different.

Palin has also been good for john McCain’s numbers.  She’s very well liked by those who like her and she’s also been good for ratings at “Saturday Night Live”, at least since Tina Fey started impersonating her three weeks ago.

And viewers have loved it!! Eaten it up, in fact.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, since the season began in early September,  “SNL” averaged a 7.4 household rating/18 share in the metered market overnights, Nielsen Media Research said on Sunday afternoon.  That’s within a tenth of a rating point of its September 13 premiere, which itself was the highest-rated show since December 14, 2002, when Al Gore and Phish appeared.

“SNL” is up 49 percent in the metered markets compared with the first four weeks of last season, as well as up 42 percent this past Saturday compared to episode No. 4 last season.

Why are ratings up?  The reason isn’t soley because of a few well written jokes about Palin.  Oh no, no, no!!!.  They’re up because (as we stated earlier) of Fey’s spot on impersonation of the Alaskan Governor.  The former SNL head writer is no longer a regular–she currently writes and stars on the Emmy award-winning NBC offering, “30 Rock”,  but comes back from time to time and has appeared as Palin during every one of the show’s opening segments since the season premier three weeks ago.

The two bear a striking resemblance.

It’s uncanny really.

Are Palin’s good looks,  as some Libs fear,  really the Republican’s secret weapon?  Is that, coupled with the fact that a popular NBC star looks just like her, making Dems uneasy?  Well, in some circles, more than a few Democrats have hinted that Palin’s physical attributes are a concern.  They’re thinking that her allure could possibly translate into more votes for the Republican ticket at the ballot box next month.

Come on now, Dems…you know this is much ado about nothing!!  OK so, Palin does have movie and TV star good looks.  So what?   I’m here to tell the Donkey party that you haven’t a thing to worry about.  There are lovely women in mainstream roles with liberal leanings who bear strong resemblances to many well-known American icons.

The Dems just need to play them up more.

For example:  Much more could be made between Hillary Clinton and her resemblance to one of the symbols that so aptly describes the art of a thespian–the Mask of Tragedy



Then, there’s former Secretary of State, Madeline Albright.  You know, there absolutely is something about that wide, down sloping nose with flaring nostrils of hers and and a downward pointing arrow.   It’s not exactly an icon, but you’d be hard pressed to find a basement, cellar or federally mandated fall out shelter without one!!



There’s the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and Ren, Stempy’s best friend!

,,…. ,


Finally Democrats, you’ve really nothing to fear with Governor Palin’s looks.  As I’ve proven, you also have your share of lookers.   Your lovely Ladies of the Left are also things of…of uh…of uh, things of beauty to be treasured and revered and if you don’t believe me, well, the proof is in the pudding with our last offering.

Talk about your icons!!

  1. I don’t know, Palin’s kind of a butter face in my eyes. Helen Thomas has some of the Trash Heap from Fraggle Rock in her too.

  2. Sarah’s life has really changed and it could be for the best or the worst, that is what makes this so interesting. Speaking of Change, why has ObamahusseinKonobi changed his dais signs to Change ‘We’ Need??????? I need change from my neighbors, he hasn’t mentioned that. I need change for a Euro sometimes and can’t get it, he hasn’t mentioned that. I need my 401 changed, he hasn’t mentioned that. I need to be taller, that needs to be changed, he hasn’t mentioned that, and who is/are ‘we’?…If fact he hasn’t mentioned anything how he is specifically going to CHANGE a damn thing..except for his pay grade which is obvious and his speaker fee’s whence this charade is over. However, his sign printer has changed tax brackets as one never knows how the CHANGE of the week will be printed and whether or not the the O logo/slogan of the week will be changed, because dem’s have been polled on a minute by minute basis, with chips in their arms, EKG’s attached and checkbook’s in hand to decide…………that the change ‘that works’, should be change for the better, oyefreakingvye.

    What is going on now is so far above most people’s head’s as far as the economy that it is beyond governmental control unless those whom are running the ‘failing’ businessess are satiated by the government, which by their very existence they never will be . DeeeeRegulation of everything, oopsie!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think SP is hot and momma thinks the 1st dude is hot, yummy, however, if we could vote neither and write in Warren Buffet we would and that would be sensical. Whatever


  3. My thoughts are that if McCain/Palen duo is the winner for the next fours years because people thought Palen is hot and her hubby is yummy, we’re in for a world of hurt. I would vote neither also and write in my husband’s name. I personally don’t care for either party nominees but I do want to vote not for what they look like but for their politics.

  4. That is hilarious. Hillary is dead on. And for the comment above about Helen Thomas & The Trash Heap from Fraggle Rock…bravo, good fellow. Bravo!

  5. LK

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for sparing us the visual comparison of Janet Reno and the hind end of the Democrats symbol.

  6. Many years ago, a woman cow-orker told me that even thought she was a Republican, that she was not going to vote for the Bush/Quayle ticket. Why not? Because she believed the rumors that Bush picked Quayle as a handsome young man to attract teh ladeez, and she didn’t want to feel manipulated.

    She didn’t understand me what I asked how she felt about being manipulated by the polls and media.

  7. Mid Sis: I suppose you think JFK was elected because of his politics? rrrrrriiiiiiiight.

    But seriously–Helen Thomas is a babe.

  8. Murph, wasn’t he? So you’re saying JFK was elected because of his looks and charm? What about Clinton? Same for him, too? So that means women AND men liked their looks and charm, too and that’s why they were elected? HMMM

  9. OK, I just choked on my coffee!!! These are hilarious…especially Nancy Pelosi (aka Stimpy)! She looks like she collided with a vat of Botox.

    Thanks, Laurie! 🙂

  10. I really loved your Wizard of Oz piece. I, too, loved the twister scene above all others…I still do…and thoroughly enjoyed the clips, especially that deleted one, and what a pity it wasn’t included. Too scary? I doubt it…the W. W. of the W. with the hourglass (my second favorite scene) used to scare the ever-loving kapok right out of me. As a side note, on my way to this comment area, I thoroughly enjoyed the various FACES. Please don’t let me dream about them…

    Thank you for some great fun!

And now, you may opine your ass off...
