Palin…. sings?!

After watching Palin’s interviews, stump speeches, and her appearance on Saturday Night Live (‘appearance’ being the operative word – she literally sat there and watched Amy Poehler rap about shooting a moose and associating Obama with Bill Ayers), there was this gnawing thought in the back of my mind that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.

The VP candidate has this mysterious, unknown quality about her, and yet… and yet she has this, I dunno – homey, folksy, down-to-earth-yet-completely-divorced-from-reality quality about her. It reminds me of something I saw a while ago.

It was a story about this fish-out-of-water, completely oblivious woman whose fantasy world is completely detached from the way things really are… she had this superbly naive, idealistic view of things no matter how difficult or complicated things were… Oh, I remember now!

Above: Sarah Palin was the not-too-well-known inspiration for Giselle’s character.

The similarities are endless. Take, for example, Palin’s uncontrollable facial reaction to Charles Gibson’s question about the Bush Doctrine and compare it with Giselle entering New York for the first time via magical subterranean teleportation:

Bush Doctrine? Is that a girly disease?

Now, I could go on ad nauseum about Palins’ debate style, her Forrest Gump approach to interviews, even her fundamentally flawed perspective on global warming and reproductive rights. But, in the spirit of Palin’s aw-shucks-ma’am sticktoitiveness, I’ve decided to forego all of that and just write a parody in her honor. After all, it seems that Mrs. Palin would much prefer to skip all the talkin’ and get down to some gosh-darned rootin’ tootin’ fun!

So here it is. This one’s for you, Sarah! God bless you and all of your unwitting, parody-inspiring comedy.

Editor’s note – Brianne Roenbeck provided the lovely vocals for Sarah Palin. More of her can be seen here.
