Remember that poor little naive Alaskan waif Sarah Palin who was horribly preyed upon by journalists and comedians from the big city? Well, no. And neither does anyone who actually watched her interviews, but that's apparently how Sarah Palin sees herself - exploited and abused by manipulative monsters like Katie Couric and Tina Fey.
In an interview with documentarian John Ziegler, Sarah Palin said "I did see that Tina fey has been named entertainer of the year and Katie Couric's ratings have risen and I know that a lot of people are capitalizing on - I don't know - I think some, perhaps, exploiting that was done via me, my family, my administration. That's a little bit perplexing. It also says a great deal about our society." Sadly, it also says a great deal about our society that Palin thought she was qualified to be vice president.
Now, in Palin's defense, Couric did go out-of-bounds by asking about such topics as, say, Palin's campaign, her positions on world issues and the names of any newspapers she's read. Who could've prepared for that?
And finally, someone has the courage to point out how Tina Fey exploits people by taking thier personal traits and just barely changing them in front of an audience.
But, Palin's complaint brings up an interesting point - if a politician says things that are so ridiculous that an comedian just has to repeat their words in a sketch...shouldn't the politician get a writing credit? After all, Palin did write a lot of what Fey said...although I'm betting Palin's not really big on "fancy writin'."
Can you imagine how great it would be to see Palin at the Emmy's getting an award for best humor writing? To see her walking up to thank all Hollywood for recognizing how no one else could've come up with the ridiculous patter, odd turns of phrases and confusing nonsense slogans she recited? It's a shame she's the only one who doesn't get the joke.
