"I Can See Russia From My House!"

It's a rare occurrence for me, but sometimes I'd rather laugh than listen to music. Shocking, I know. I had this week's Mad Musical Monday post all ready to go. And then I saw this:

Keepin' it nonpartisan y'all! I know, I know...the presidential race is serious business and I am not making light of it. This just cracked me up big time, and was a welcome respite from all the negative media surrounding each of the candidates, particularly Governor Palin.

Enjoy!

Yup, that was funny.
I could see Russia when I lived there,too (Not really- I couldn't see it, but I was born there.)

Trish said...

I **heart** Sarah Palin......
and I **heart**heart** Tina Fey and Amy Poeller.

So, I "invite the media to grow a pair, and if you can't I'll lend you mine"

tooo funny!

I watched this three times! Hilarious. Tina totally got the Sarah Palin impression down! If they win, Tina could work for the Secret Service as a body double.

Alecia said...

Holy crap, LULA....It's kinda creepy that we're on the same wavelength....I just watched this video two hours ago, and then I hop over to your blog to see you're title for this post was my absolute favorite (laugh outloud) line from the whole skit. Hysterical!

**From the moment I laid eyes on Ms. Palin, I knew Tina Fey would play her. Because they might just be the same person. My sources will neither confirm or deny...

Amy said...

This is very funny. I love Tina and Amy, they are genius. I love Youtube too, or I would of missed this. Hope you had a great weekend.

Dawn said...

That really was funny!! I saw it on Saturday Night Live and was really cracking up!

Yes, I am going to read the other books in the Twilight series and see the movie! I ordered the 2nd book over the weekend. I got lucky that I didn't know anything about it all, so I haven't had to wait long for the other books or the movie!

Debbie said...

THAT.WAS.BRILLIANT. I am so glad you posted it because I forgot to TIVO it. Tina Fey had Sarah Palin nailed down...everything about her was dead on. Sooo sooo good...I need to come back and watch it agian when my son isn't asking for breakfast!

Vicki said...

I love this! I watched it on my phone and until "Sara" started posing I didn't realize it was Tina. I knew they resemble each other, but is almost twin-ish. And she sounded just like her. I'm still lovin' me some Palin!

Vicki said...

Oh, can you correct that spelling error? I get to typing so fast on this tiny keyboard and things get dropped. I love me some Sarah. I'm sure there's a Sara out there that I'd love just as much.

Kat said...

I wonder if Tina Fey will show up again to play her? The resemblance is uncanny. And I love the line about Sarah and her "Tina Fey glasses."

But...the rest of SNL was horrible. I think Michael Phelps stumbled over every line he was given. And it wasn't funny.

Caroline said...

That is funny! Tina Fey does a GREAT Palin impersonation!

Heather said...

You are the first person I thought of when I watched SNL last Saturday. I usually fall asleep before the news is even over, but this little skit had me in stitches! I knew Tina Fey would be a perfect Sarah Palin!

Did you get any remnants of Ike this weekend? We had over 880,000 people without power, and we were one of those for about 5 hours. Hope you are all okay...

Jaci said...

You know, for a few seconds I actually though it was Sara Palin. Isn't that sad?

This was the funniest skit of the night. I loved it. The rest of SNL? Umm...not so much.

CaraBee said...

This was so funny! I heard earlier this week that Tina Fey would be on to do Sarah Palin but I just don't stay up that late these days. I'm so old. Amy Poehler (sp) was great too!

Melissa Lee said...

Yes, but you live in Pennington Gap. So see? I'm still kinda the winner.

This was HILARIOUS! I watched it Saturday night and was on the floor laughing.

Rhea said...

Everyone is showing this clip this morning! It was sooo funny. Tina Fey did a brilliantly hilarious job as Sarah Palin. I was so impressed.

Tony C said...

SNL nails it again. You're right about all the mudslinging...it gets old.

Love your blog!

Tiffany said...

I cannot believe we both posted this on the same day.

We were totally separated from birth.

Nan said...

Freaking hysterical! I loved that. I don't eve watch SNL, but I did see that Tina Fey was going to play Sarah Palin...she nailed her! That was awesome! I may have to start watching SNL again just to see more of this!

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

I agree. It was very funny. Hubs and I predicted that Tina Fey would open up the season as Sarah Palin. The resemblance is uncanny.

TentCamper said...

OK....That was funny. I actually lauhed out loud.

I think that they should have kissed at the end

scargosun said...

I agree with TentCamper. That would have been awesome!

I agree with TentCamper. That would have been awesome!

Brandy said...

Everyone is talking about this clip and why wouldn't they...it's hilarious!!! She really nailed Palin and then Hilary...oh my, those are things she wishes she could really say.

~~And don't break up with me...I can't help that I live in a Hokie house. Truth be told I don't even like football...but I heart tailgating!~~

Bwhahahahahaha!! Oh, my stars...I have it DVR'd, I just haven't watched it yet. I LOVE SNL.

Veggie Mom said...

Hey--I saw that today on my friend Melissa B.'s blog, too! Pretty funny stuff, I'd say!! She takes it one step farther, though--I think her post is entitled, "Vote for Tina!" http://scholastic-scribe.blogspot.com And BTW, don't miss *Recipe Week* over at my place!

Marrdy said...

I have heard about this all day. Thanks for posting it so all the "workers" here can enjoy it while I blogstalk. Politics, just love it!..

Mama's Losin' It said...

This is seriously hilarious...and I agree (Obama) our blogs are no place (Obama) for us to state our personal opinions (Obama) regarding the presidential elections (Obama - cough cough).

Dawn said...

I have an award for you on my blog!

Kim said...

I see you found it on youtube! I loved it! And that really does look exactly like Sara Palin!

Robin said...

I laughed so hard when I saw this Saturday night. I think Amy being pregnant even made it funnier!!

Gramma 2 Many said...

I saw this this morning, and couldn't stop laughing. Just brought Tricia and Gina's dad down to see it. It is no longer available. Who didn't like it? Think I will go to you-tube and see if it is really gone.

PhatMom said...

3/4 done with New Moon. Blogged about it and YOU! Go check it. ;)

"Where Did Mama Roho Go?

Melissa Lester said...

That was hilarious! I didn't see this skit live, so was glad to catch the whole thing here. I thought it was funny hearing media coverage announcing late in the week that Tina Fey would probably play Governor Palin on SNL. Who didn't realize that the first moment we met her? Thanks for posting this. I might just have to pop back over to see it again!

Mrs. S said...

seriously I laughed so loud it scared the baby...oh but that's great. Tina Fey looks SO MUCH like her...much better than fake Hillary.

Insane Mama said...

Did they say bonner downer? I think I will have to rewatch

Live.Love.Eat said...

I heard about this and how funny it is. I wish I could see it right now but we'll have to wait until I am home tonight. Awe man...........

Ronnica said...

Thanks for sharing! I never watch SNL anymore, but I do love some Tina Fey and hadn't realized she had an appearance on the show again. I laughed until I cried!

Me said...

We waited watched it on SNL and were laughing hysterically! Loved it. I loved the air guitar especially.

The real Sarah Palin would be such a great PTA president at our grade school.

ps: I'm loving my Kindle and my first book is Twilight

Beckie Farrant, said...

Oh my gosh I watched that on Saturday and laughed my butt off. She did the perfect Sarah Palin, facial expressions and all.

Kathi said...

Thanks for posting this it was so cute. Lovin' Sarah. Kathi
