Outrageous

September 16, 2008

Memo to the McCain camp — lighten up:

By now, I suspect most of you have seen the opening skit from “Saturday Night Live,” which featured a joint press conference hosted by Sarah Palin (played perfectly by Tina Fey) and Hillary Clinton (Amy Poehler). If you missed it, and it was pretty hilarious, NBC has posted the whole thing.

It was pretty harmless, and as Faiz noted, Palin herself reportedly found it “quite funny” and had a good laugh. But then, there was McCain adviser/surrogate Carly Fiorina on MSNBC this morning.

“[T]he portrait [on “SNL”] was very dismissive of the substance of Sarah Palin, and so, in that sense, they were defining Hillary Clinton as very substantive and Sarah Palin as totally superficial,” Fiorina argued. “I think that continues the line of argument that is disrespectful in the extreme and yes, I would say, sexist, in the sense that just because Sarah Palin has different views than Hillary Clinton does not mean that she lacks substance.”

And, for the Obama camp — you, too:

When Dems get outraged at unfairness they look weak. How can they stand up to Putin if they start whining when confronted with Steve Schmidt?

Still seven weeks to go, and the phony outrage is already soooo tiresome.
