SNL - Tina Fey As Palin" 'We Finally Vanquished One of the World's Great Villains - Katie Couric'
New Busted ^ | May 08, 2011 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 05/08/2011 3:27:53 PM PDT by CharlyFord

NBC's Tina Fey guest-hosted "Saturday Night Live" last evening, and viewers could hardly be surprised her network took the opportunity to once again use her to bash former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

In a mock Republican presidential candidates debate, before depicting Palin as an idiot that doesn't fully understand English, Fey did manage to take a humorous swipe at the soon to be exiting CBS "Evening News" host saying, "I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world's great villains, and I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric" (video follows with partial transcript):

Why one anyone enter conservative politics and subject themselves, their families, and loved ones to the kind of hateful mockery that the liberals dish out as comedy. It's ridicule without end. It's destroying our country!

The mindless ignorant voters think that is actually Sarah Palin. they are too dumb to know the difference. Even MSM news anchors misquote Tina Fey's words as Palin's

Osama Bin Laden attacked us a few times. Couric attacked America every night and pretended to be one of us. She is the bigger villain.

Enjoy it, Tina Fey while it lasts. You will eventually get the liberal world you think you want.

The Rubicon is being crossed: this quote can be interpreted as pro-Palin.

Cheers!

Yeah...probably about 40% of this country get their “news” from weekend update on SNL, and politically incorrect-—and they BELIEVE IT!!

Sad what “we” have become as a nation..

That’s only because Couric’s on a rival network.

It’s all about the owner’s money.

So you’re not thrilled to “say good riddance to Katie Couric”?

You wish Couric to remain where she is? Like her maybe?
Fantasize a bit? What is your objection to her departure?

What exactly is your point?

Just remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If Palin was irrelevant, they would have dropped this a long time ago. Their Romney digs last night were really funny.

SNL is pretty sad now.

Maybe one skit in five shows will be funny.

I could write better stuff than the current crop of 25 year old NYC dwellers.

That Little Memraid Under the sea skit was very sad.

The United States has three enemies.

1. Islamofascist terrorists.

2. Our own radical left-wingers.

3. The Mainstream Media.

And, of these, the Mainstream Media is the most dangerous. For, without the aid of the MSM, the other two enemies would've been defeated years ago.

I’m thinking with all this free publicity, why not run....? I think now, what does she have to lose.

For one thing, she will elevate the debate... and if she loses she will unite us behind the person who does win.

THere is no doubt in my mind that she will run...no doubt...

If Tina Fey has any brains (which is somewhat doubtful), she would be eager to see Sarah Palin become President.

That would give her a full-time, high-paying gig for FOUR YEARS. Or EIGHT YEARS. Like that guy who used to play George Bush.

Maybe somebody should explain that to her.

Dan Rather Biased killed CBS News. Who cares what Couric does. I'm sure her listeners will miss her! Both of them!

It was either Nolte or Breitbart that dubbed these media cretins like Jon Stewart, Letterman, Colbert, the SNL crowd, etc., as basically Obama’s “PALACE GUARD.” Always there, protecting Obama and trashing/destroying his opposition. That’s a very accurate moniker for them... Obama’s “Palace Guard,” like court-jesters who work on behalf of the ruling elites of the establishment. Cowardly minions, basically.

It's in the title isn't it?

Vanquished One of the World's Great Villains - Katie Couric

The issue is SNL's and the libs nonstop assault on Sarah palin.

It got her name in the news didn't it? Right here and now.

And spoofing Palin about being glad that Couric got whacked.. how is that bad?

Palin probably IS glad about it.

Are you insinuating that Palin is on the Couric team and is not happy about this?

You are focusing on the problem just from within the U.S., when this is a problem of the very connected, worldwide left. Worldwide leftist politics and worldwide political correctness must be ended, successfully, finally, and asap. Happy Mother’s Day, to all mom’s, to all mom’s to be, and to
all mom’s at heart.

Based on what we know of Tina Fey's personal life I'll begin to worry about Sarah Palin the day she starts impersonating Tina Fey.

I wanted to watch Jay Leno last monday since I thought he would say something about Bin Ladin. (Leno's show were really good especially the first show after 9/11). But Leno's show like alot of liberals were saying "Obama, Obama, Obama" not "america, america America". Leno even told a joke implying that Palin didn;t know the difference between the Navy Seals and the animals at SeaWorld. I would say Palin probably knows more aqbout the military than 98% of the Hollywood skanks that Jay Leno trots out to sit in his geust chair.

Tina Fey has helped to put Sarah Palin in the same same class as Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain and Yogi Berra, namely people who are as likely to be quoted for something they never said.

...[O]f these, the Mainstream Media is the most dangerous. For, without the aid of the MSM, the other two enemies would've been defeated years ago.

The MSM is the most dangerous because it enables acceptance of the results of vote fraud. The Barney Franks, the Al Frankens, the Harry Reids, the Barbara Boxers, the most extreme liberals, represent a minority that has seized power via vote fraud. The MSM makes it look like there's enough of them in "mainstream America" to make it so. When libs "win" via the grind of manufactured "get out" drives and ginned and harvested and fraudulent votes, the majority has been preconditioned to accept it via the MSM. That's how a minority seizes power over the majority. The MSM plays a big part.

That most Americans dislike liberals is evident because Liberals have to cheat. They have to cheat because they are the minority.

Judging by consumer comments on MSM news sites like Yahoo, LA Times, ABC, etc., show minimum of 50 percent, often much more like 70 or 80, feel a high degree of a) contempt for Obama; b) contempt for liberals; and c) contempt for a biased news media.

When a voice of conservatism that says "You want less government, you want that monkey off your back? Vote for us," the legitimate majority of American voters would be overwhelmingly refreshed and revitalized. That's what they're begging for.

Yep, that's exactly why he won. He also won because he wasn't running against Carter, he was running for -- holding high the banner for -- "Government isn't the solution to our problems. Government IS the problem."

Government stands in the way of America becoming energy independent. Government stands in the way of business and personal prosperity. Government is now shifting to stand in the way of every American's individual and independent access to medical care.

Americans are begging for an alternative. I hope Palin runs, and I hope conservatives in politics stop thinking in terms of the idiot individuals they're running against, and start thinking in terms of the principle they're running FOR: limited government. THAT is what will resonate with American voters.

........................................................................................................................

Great points. Why shouldn’t she run? She has an excellent shot at going down in history as the FIRST female nominee of a major party. That would be on the books (and wikipedia) forever.

She can go after Obama full-on, why not? And the last point I fully agree on...she’s running. I was skeptic until someone pointed something out to me: she wouldn’t tease her supporters this long, too many negative consequences.
