I’ve been sick in bed for a few days, so I may have synapses firing in unexpected — and perhaps incoherent — ways. That being said, aren’t Sarah Palin and Sasha Baron Cohen the complete polar opposites of each other?
The inspiration for this theory came from reading articles about the two of them one after the other. First was a piece from the Ã¼ber-conservative National Review, surprisingly condemning the Sarracuda. Excerpts:
Palinâ€™s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.
Palin filibusters. She repeats words, filling space with deadwood. Cut the verbiage and thereâ€™s not much content there.
If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.
And remember, this was from a conservative pundit. Maybe there’s hope for us after all.
The second article was about the former Borat, who is now filming his new movie in the gay fashionista character of Bruno. He interrupted Milan Fashion Week by doing his own strut down the catwalk:
So the way I see it, Palin spends all her time playing a fake persona that wants to give the impression of being “real,” for the larger purpose of keeping the lies of our current government going. Cohen spends all his time playing fake personas that turn what is “real” on its ass, for the larger purpose of exposing the truth about us.
By the way, the official title of the Bruno film is BrÃ¼no: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt.
Let’s all see if we can think up the subtitle of a movie called Sarah:, shall we?
