Okay, so you want to see Sarah Palin? You want to ask her a question without getting roughed (rouged?) up by security? The loading dock of your local book store seems the best bet!
So Ms. Palin and her Infinite Wisdom book tour got caught by the Canadian comedy show This Hour Has 22 Minutes. In a similar spirit to the Daily Show With Jon Stewart, they are a news spoof.
The results at this Going Rogue book signing are both hysterical and sad. No questions could be asked at the signing. The 22 Minutes reporter managed to grab her attention on the way to her bus. Nothing like a spontaneous comment!
So keep the spirit you Canadian Conservatives!! Keep working to dismantle our socialized medicine!! Why? Because profits need to be made! Ahhh, logic! Let’s ask our dear Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper if he agrees! Somewhere in the bowels of his mind, I can’t help but think that he does.
On the other side of the coin, a real Canadian news show called Provincewide interviews Michael Moore (director of Sicko) this week at a Health trade show. In the ad, the host, Daiene Vernile pulls out her Ontario Health Card to show him and says ‘I’ve had 3 babies and 2 back surgeries and haven’t paid a cent’. He jokes back to her ‘What are you some kind of slacker? Some kind of moocher’? Very funny.
Of course the best Palin joke gets told by Tina Fey this week:
“They made a porn movie about Sarah Palin, and the same actress, Lisa Ann, played me in the porn version of 30 Rock. Weirdly, of the three of us, Lisa Ann knows the most about foreign policy.”
— Tina Fey, speaking at Ad Council gala
