Parody: a literary or artistic work that broadly mimics an author’s characteristic sytle and holds it up to ridicule
This has been a difficult week. Markets crumbling, Palinmania, McCain slimorama. We need a laugh. And thankfully I’ve got three for you:
First: a voice mail that purports to be McCain calling Sarah Palin, asking her to be his running mate. (Click on the symbol that looks like a megaphone to play).
Second: a totally brilliant Sarah Palin impersonation by Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live. She not only looks like her, she’s got her accent and mannerisms down.
And finally (for now) John McCain, who until a couple of months ago didn’t know how to use a computer, must be an idiot savant. Did you know he invented the Blackberry? Yes he did!
