From zero to hero?
How much influence do you think the political satires of Tina Fey portraying Sarah Palin are going to have on the voters in America? I don't even watch Saturday Night Live and I've come across all the videos. They certainly are funny, there's no question. But they portray Governor Palin in a very poor light, making her look like a complete dolt. Even in Canada the media favours Obama and loves to attack Mrs. Palin. Is the media just wielding their considerable power of public persuasion to discredit Governor Palin in an attempt to ambush John McCain? Or is Sarah Palin’s naïveté about world affairs simply too irresistible to pass up? Whatever the reason, with the election looming, this woman whom McCain plucked from relative obscurity and positioned in a role of political magnitude that she had little preparation for, has a tough job on her hands.
Let me pit her against Obama, the master of speech eloquence. You will see what I mean.
