tina fey as sarah palin on SNL 09132008.

After a week’s worth of speculation … it happened. Further proof that the only likable thing about Sarah Palin is how she sorta reminds us of Tina Fey. 

she might just turn me over to the dark side…

…well, as far as the US elections go, it’s pretty clear that it stopped being about the issues and is now about the personalities.  One of these is McCain’s surprising (as of last week) choice for a VP: Sarah Palin.  (That’s pey-lin)

Figure 1.0 The “Kiss of Death”
Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reason, and not just to mingle with the right people. Politics isn’t just a game of clashing parties and competing interests.The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good and to leave this nation better than we found it.

-Sarah Palin,
Acceptance Speech at the RNC, 09032008

After watching her acceptance speech at the RNC, it’s pretty clear that she’s a seasoned politician — if it made the RNC cheer for her, line, after line, after line, about how great things will be, all the while bashing the high points of Obama, referred to as “the/our opponent,” with great timing, if I might add — then she probably knows what she’s doing.

I’m just a boy, I go ga-ga for women, and yeah, I’m crushing on the lovely Governor because she sort of makes me think that’s how Tina Fey’s gonna look decades from now.  (Read: still awesome)

But I wouldn’t vote for her just yet — in choosing the right person for the job, as in any job interview, you have to know the applicant’s experience, (will it benefit you for the position that person is applying for?) history, and qualifications.  Just because we get flashed with those beautiful teeth, and pictures of flying kisses, doesn’t necessarily mean we’d take that person in, no questions asked.

I would say though, that she did a very good job in her speech.  (Youtube clips after the jump!)  Will I turn over to the dark side for her?  Not just yet.  

P.S. The green party’s under-represented.

Here’s Olivia Wilde’s PSA for 18 in ’08.

As if the rights to suffrage didn’t turn me on already.


politics and music.

Who has better fans?  Obama:

or McCain?

With a list of tribute rap songs in his name, it seems like Obama isn’t just influencing change, but music as well.  And what of McCain?
