Some last good ones
Well, Sarah Palin had a great start - as comic/tragic figure in comedy and on the internet. Just some days before the elections here some nice links. You don't have to be an enemy of Palin to enjoy the craze about her person - but you might turn into one.
A really nice Flash animation about, well, what if... and if...
Language isn't Palin strongest skill, you betcha. The New Yorker reports about Verbage. The Republican war on words. In addition to this article you might enjoy the following two websites:
The VP candidate often gets lost in the linguistic welters like a flying dutchman. Read Palin's answers on the fully automated answer generator. Did you get what she said?
Remix Sarah Palin
Help Sarah Make Sense! Quite similar to "interview Palin" but this time with mp3 files in a meshup. Très funny. Listen to mixes or make your own.
Often copied never topped: The Saturday Night Life Opening Skits with Tina Fey as Sarah Palin. Check them all out on the NBC/SNL video website.
Is McCain Palin's Bitch?
One of soo many satires on youtube.com - good starting point, just follow the links.
Sarah Palin's Facebook Page
A fake - for sure... :-)
Two serious links towards the end: Adam Brickley "invented" Sarah Palin as VP candidate with his blog palinforvp.blogspot.com/. Maverick, maverick, maverick, hahaha. More about the interesting backgrounds of Sarah Palin's quest for Washington you'll find in Jane Mayers article in the New Yorker The Insiders. How John McCain came to pick Sarah Palin.
