Rumour has it Sarah Palin will show up on SNL ( Saturday Night Live) this weekend. I have mixed feeling about this. I have gone from thinking she is cute and adorable (but dangerous) to feeling very weird about her- especially after hearing all these reports of the way rally audiences have been behaving and that she has made no moves to stop them.
Rally attendee have been screaming things like ” terrorist” and “off with is head” about Barack Obama and disturbingly ” Kill Him: . An African American camera man covering a rally was attacked this week.
She seems to get people whipped up into a frenzy yet does nothing when supporters shout out heinous epitaphs. This makes me queasy.
You can watch video here.
I am also getting an awful feeling about this so-called Bradley Effect. This is phenomenon where white voters SAY they will vote for black candidate, then don’t. I fear that if Barack keeps his wide margin in the polls and then does not win, then we will see horrible race relations like we have never seen before.
I have digressed ab it- mean to talk about Sarah Palin being on SNL this weekend. One the one hand I think- my god the world is in a economical crisis that has still not bottomed out and what the heck is a VP candidate doing on late night comedy show/ Shouldn’t she be doing better things?
On the other hand- maybe we need to laugh a little. Just seems odd. Dick Cheney would not have gone on David Letterman just after 9/11.
I think if I were a GOP strategist I wouldn’t take the risk of it backfiring.
As a Democrat supporter- would not bother me if campaign shot itself in the foot AGAIN.
