Despite (or because of) her debate performance, Sarah Palin is still a national joke

Posted by Anthony L. Hall

Truth be told, I really thought Palin showed enough style and self-confidence during her debate with Joe Biden on Thursday that Saturday Night Live would’ve been loath to continue making fun of her.

But there was Tina Fey on Saturday night doing her parody of Palin’s folksy style and manufactured self-confidence in a way that ridiculed her debate performance for the national joke it truly was. 

Never mind an Emmy, Fey deserves a Presidential Medal of Freedom for public service.  

Meanwhile, Palin did not enhance her political stature over the weekend when she sullied her perfect lipstick by feeding at the trough of dirty campaign tricks.

Because it only reinforced how clueless this hockey mom turn pit bull is (and how desperate the McCain campaign has become) when she spewed out the discredited and patently absurd accusation that Obama pals around with domestic terrorists.  Not to mention her vacuous attempt to play the race card when she punctuated this accusation by asserting that:

This is not a man who sees America as you see it and as I see America.

But this compels me to reiterate the conclusion I made in a recent commentary lambasting McCain for casting Obama in the sleaziest campaign ad in US history:

McCain is fond of proclaiming that he would rather lose a campaign than lose a war.  But it seems he would rather lose his soul than lose a campaign. And, since he chose born-again Christian Sarah Palin not only to curry favor with women but also to inspire the evangelical base of the Republican Party, perhaps she should remind him of what Jesus said in this respect:

‘What would it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul.’ [Mathew 16:26]
