Acting like you care

September 16, 2008

When Sarah Palin turned up as John McCain’s running, mate one question immediately sprung to mind – will it be Tina Fey or Julia Louis-Dreyfuss who get called back to work?  Well, Saturday Night Live’s season opener answered the question when Tina donned a red suit and sharp spectacles in a cold opener that attracted the show’s highest ratings in 7 years.

The likeness is uncanny – see the full clip here.

One of the best features of the LONG US campaign trail is celebrity involvement. Oprah’s been busy publicly endorsing Obama. John McCain attracted Lacy Chabert and Jerry Bruckheimer to a major fundraiser. But the most surprising statement from an A-Lister comes from Matt Damon. The Bourne Identity star is questioning Palin’s lack of experience in going from Governer of Alaska to the White House. Kind of like Ben Affleck’s ability to go from (allegedly) co-creating an oscar winning script to becoming a Hollywood success.
