Super Barack!

November 8th, 2008 · No Comments

Whoever is doing these Barack Obama movie parodies needs to get an Academy Award or something. These are just outrageously entertaining, especially for those of us who grew up on these flicks. First the Star Wars parody, The Empire Strikes Barack; then the Rocky parody, Baracky; and now it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s [...]

Known [...]

SNL: McCain-Palin infomercial airs on QVC

November 2nd, 2008 · No Comments

In case you missed it, John McCain and Tina Fey were hilarious last night on Saturday Night Live. It’s amazing how well McCain can control his facial expressions whenever Barack Obama isn’t in the room. SNL does qualify as free media, but I’m not sure if it’s the best use of McCain’s time three days [...]

(via Kotaku) If for some reason you are standing up while surfing the Internet, you should go ahead and sit down right now.  Because this is probably the coolest thing you’ll ever see. Cashing in on election fever, EA today announced that, as part of an upcoming update for Mercenaries 2, both Sarah Palin and [...]

Will Ferrell and Tina Fey endorse the Bush-McCain-Palin ticket on SNL

October 24th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Will Ferrell never did the best Bush impression, but this skit from last night’s Saturday Night Live is hilarious. You get the feeling that if Bush really did do a nationally televised address to publicly and emphatically endorse John McCain, it would go something like this: “When you think of John McCain, think of me, [...]

Sarah Palin (sort of) rocks SNL’s world

October 19th, 2008 · No Comments

Nothing to write home about, but Sarah Palin’s appearance last night on Saturday Night Live definitely passed the funny test. To be honest, the first skit seemed a little uncomfortable, watching the SNL cast making some pretty hard-hitting jokes at her expense while she basically stood around and nodded. You kind of wondered what Palin [...]

SNL: Joe the Plumber is McCain’s imaginary friend

October 17th, 2008 · No Comments

Here’s last night’s SNL sketch of the final debate, mostly focused on John McCain’s obsession with Joe the Plumber.  The notion that Joe is McCain’s imaginary friend actually isn’t too far from the truth.  McCain thought Joe was a plumber making over $250,000 who would pay higher taxes under Obama’s plan, and an upstanding, tax-paying, unbiased [...]

Cindy McCain makes hilarious late night talk show appearance

October 11th, 2008 · No Comments

Who knew she could be this funny? Some surprisingly risque material from a potential first lady… Oh, wait, what? Betty who? Oh. Then let’s try this again. There, that’s the real Cindy McCain. As you can see, she’s much better suited to play the traditional first lady attack dog role. And by “better suited,” I [...]

SNL’s solution to the financial crisis: FIX IT!

October 11th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Hilarious bit by Keenan Thompson Thursday night.  Skip to the 4:31 mark in the video. The “Really?!/Oh, my God, are you serious?!” bit at the 2:12 mark is pretty funny, too. Speaking of which, it can’t be overstated how much NBC sucks for not letting people chop up their clips and post them on YouTube. Nobody wants [...]

Pa.lindro.me: The GOP tells her what to say, now you can too!

October 9th, 2008 · 1 Comment

On the lighter side of the political world, a website called Pa.lindro.me is up and running this week.  It’s a place where you can play a game of mad libs with some of Sarah Palin’s favorite catchphrases.  Then the fun part: you get to hear her say whatever phrase you made up in her own voice.  Here’s a few [...]

Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey step up attacks on Sarah Palin

September 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment

From last night’s show: My first thought was, “Why is Katie Couric pregnant?” Oh, yeah, because Amy Poehler is in real life. Sarah Palin is not an unintelligent woman, but– the look, the accent, the life story, the Oh-God-I-totally-forgot-there-was-a-quiz-today-why-didn’t-I-study-last-night interviewing style– she just presents so many comedic avenues. The sad part is that Tina Fey’s [...]

David Letterman vs. John McCain

September 25th, 2008 · No Comments

When David Letterman spends ten minutes of his show calling you a quitter (“This is not the John McCain I know”), and stops in the middle of an interview to cut to live video of you caught in a lie (“Hey, John, do you need a ride to the airport?”), your screw-the-media strategy may be [...]

“I’m John McCain, and I approved this message”

September 21st, 2008 · 1 Comment

Not as good as the Palin skit, but in case you missed Saturday Night Live last night: My question is, when are they gonna figure out how to make a Barack Obama skit funny? Fred Armisen didn’t get the job done last season, and after an entire summer to work on it, they haven’t even [...]

In case you missed it, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler opened the new season of Saturday Night Live with a hilarious parody of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin– the two queens of train wreck politics– in what is instantly one of the best SNL political sketches ever. You knew it was coming, you just didn’t [...]
