MILF to Maniac: Sarah Palin Jokes Hit the Web

 

Be afraid. Be very,
very afraid…

Well, the Republicans wound up their robot last night and
aimed her in the direction of the RNC podium, and she performed perfectly – too
perfectly, in fact. In the time it took to deliver her
I-got-good-Christian-maverick-cred/now-let’s-go-get-that-scary-black-man
speech, Sarah Palin went from MILF to maniac (and I’m not talking the
pole-dancing “Maniac” sort, either). She was that scary, and if the Obama
campaign underestimates her, we can, in the words of one of my esteemed
colleagues, expect the Democrats to fumble the ball in the end zone once again.

 

Meanwhile, while the McSame campaign gets ready to ratchet
up its New Improved Variation On The Southern Strategy – e.g., to bring soccer
moms and disaffected Hillary voters under the same tent that’s housing the closet
racists and the Christian crazies – let us take a quick breather, come out of
the trenches, and enjoy some of the wit, wit and more wit that the Palin
ascendancy has prompted from pundits and funnymen alike.

 

In Tuesday’s NYMag.com a feature titled “Sarah Palin Jokes:
Is McCain’s V.P. Making Politics Funny Again?” pointed out that a veritable
deluge of Palin-themed humor has hit the media circus. A couple of our
favorites that NYMag.com highlighted:

 

 

 

  • “She’s not bad-looking. She looks like one of those
    women in the Van Halen videos who takes off her glasses, shakes out her hair,
    and then all of a sudden, she’s in high heels and a bikini. All of a sudden, I
    am FOR drilling in Alaska.”
    Jimmy Kimmel

 

 

 

  • “John McCain’s V.P. pick is the governor of Alaska, a unknown hockey
    mom named Sarah Palin that no one ever heard of. The only other job she had in
    politics was the mayor of a small town known as Wasilla, Alaska,
    and now she has the opportunity to be on a ticket opposite of Barack Obama, the
    first black man she’s ever seen.” –Bill Maher

 

 

  • “She does know about international relations because
    she is right up there in Alaska, right
    next-door to Russia.”
    Fox News’ Steve Doocy “When you think about it, Alaska is also near the North Pole, so she
    must also be friends with Santa.” –Jon Stewart
