Has anyone noticed how all the political pundits on the mainstream news electiontrains.jpgare crediting Tina Fey's impression of Sarah Pailn for boosting Obama's numbers? SNL has such good ratings that NBC has launched a prime time series on Thursdays that showcases the best of their political skits! All of this implies that Sarah Palin is just a train wreck. Which is why it surprises me that Palin isn't pandering to the gays. You know we love a train wreck! (Brittney Spears? Amy Winehouse? Lindsey Lohan?)
