global warming is just God hugging us closer



  1. Amazing skit...Tina Fay couldn't have done a better job with Sarah Palin.

  2. Pretty good. Humor definitely speaks the truth when it is the funniest.

  3. Well said citykin. Let's hope Tina comes back, she has a lot of great material to work with.

    On Iraq:

    "I've been so focused on state government, I haven't really focused much on the war in Iraq. I heard on the news about the new deployments, and while I support our president, Condoleezza Rice, and the administration, I want to know that we have an exit plan in place."
    --March 21, 2007, Alaska Business Monthly

    "Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [American soldiers] out on a task that is from God. That's what we have to make sure that we're praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God's plan."
    --June 8, 2008, Wasilla Assembly of God Church

    On creationism:

    "Growing up with being so privileged and blessed to be given a lot of information on, on both sides of the subject--creationism and evolution. It's been a healthy foundation for me. But don't be afraid of information and let kids debate both sides."
    --October 25, 2006, gubernatorial debate

    On global warming:

    "A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I'm not one, though, who would attribute it to being man-made."
    --August 29, 2008, Newsmax

    On energy:

    "I think God's will has to be done in unifying people and companies to get that gas line built, so pray for that."
    --June 8, 2008, Wasilla Assembly of God Church

    On receiving $1.8 million in federal earmarks for the city of Wasilla:

    "FYI This does not include our nearly one million Dollars from the Feds for our Airport Paving Project. We did well!!!"
    --June 14, 1999, Wasilla City Council Informational Memorandum 99-62

    On that "Bridge to Nowhere":

    Question: "Would you continue state funding for the proposed Knik Arm and Gravina Island bridges?
    Palin: "Yes. I would like to see Alaska's infrastructure projects built sooner rather than later. The window is now--while our congressional delegation is in a strong position to assist."
    --October 22, 2006, Anchorage Daily News

    On library books she doesn't like:

    "What would your response be if I asked you to remove some books from the collection?"
    --October 1996 conversation with librarian Mary Ellen Emmons, Anchorage Daily News

    On the secessionist Alaskan Independence Party:

    "Your party plays an important role in our state's politics ... keep up the good work, and God bless you."
    --2008 video address to Independence Party's convention

    On Ivana Trump:

    "We want to see Ivana because we are so desperate in Alaska for any semblance of glamour and culture."
    --April 3, 1996, Anchorage Daily News

    On running Wasilla:

    "It's not rocket science. It's six million dollars and fifty-three employees."
    --October 1996, Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman

    On being governor:

    "I will unambiguously, steadfastly, and doggedly guard the interests of this great state, as a mother naturally guards her own. Like a Southeast Eagle and her eaglets, or, more appropriately here in the Carlson, like a Nanook defending her cub."
    --December 4, 2006, Inaugural address

    On the prospect of becoming a candidate for vice president:

    "It kind of cracks me up. It is so far out of the realm of possibility and reality."
    --August 14, 2008, Financial Post
