In Which I Talk Politics.....

Luckily, it's gonna be a short **talk** because - here's the thing:
I don't like Politicians. End of discussion.

The VP debate on Thursday? Well.....it made me want to curl up into the fetal position under my divorce desk and suck my thumb.
And rock back and forth.
And bang my head against the wall.

The only thing I'm liking from this whole upcoming election?

SNL skits.

I love Tina Fey, and I hope she'd agree with me that this election is one of the most important reasons for her being on this planet. Absolutely brilliant.

I forgot to say that when she pulled out the flute, I nearly lost bladder control.

You're right, SNL has been great! We always enjoyed their past election coverage, too (Bush, Clinton, Gore). If I wasn't laughing, I'd be crying.

Hey! You and I TOTALLY see eye to eye on politics! Sometimes while I'm rocking back and forth on the floor I also develop a twitch...

Amy or I (heart) Tina Fey said...

I think the real reason John McCain chose Palin as a running mate is because he is a closet Tina Fey worshipper and needed a compelling reason for her to return to SNL. Anyway, I saw the skit live on Sat. night. On Sunday I was reading the paper in the kitchen and I kept hearing these bursts of uproarious laughter coming from my basement..."what's going on down there!" Sure enough that was my hubby watching the SNL online. Maverick. There, that's one more drink for ya.

People,
Im not laughing, We are really REALLY in trouble here.

I so did love the talent portion, as michelle did, and she does a great Palin..But this whole thing of the economy and the Obama craze is really keeping me up at night. SKEEEEERY. Be informed. Look and listen to the FACTS.

Martha said...

Lis,

You know what's skeery?

Joe Biden's veneers. It's almost criminal.
One of Minnesota's Senators (Coleman) has the same ones. I think they get them at the Bad Veneers Shop.

I'm totally serious.

Can I crawl under the Divorce desk with you? Ive got a fresh batch of lunchtime "vodka and lemonades"

Martha said...

Only if you call me a Maverick.

And if you make my drink a double.

Lisa said...

Daniela said...

I CAN'T believe I fell asleep before SNL was on and I missed Tina (again) and Queen Latifa. Thank you so much for posting this video. It's hysterical!

I love politics, but don't have a raging left or right wing blog. Talking politics makes you not like people you normally would. So I keep my opinions off my blog -- mostly. :D

With that said, I do have a non-partisan joke on my blog a that a politician disliker will enjoy! :D

I love Tina Fey!

Brooke said...

SNL skits are the only redeeming factor in any election year, inmyopinion! Tina Fey SO has this one wrapped up. Classic.

Kat said...

Oh good! I was worried you were gonna rant. We have enough of that around here everytime we turn on CNN. No soft spot in my heart for politicians either.
ROFL!!! I dont watch SNL but maybe I should.

Lisa said...
