Don’t Let Sarah Palin Pretend to Be All Better Now
Watching her being flawlessly lampooned - her hypocrisy and pomposity laid bare with a clarity that only comedy can achieve - felt like a gossamer lifeline of hope and sanity to which we could all cling.
In short: Fey’s Palin impression wasn’t important because Palin is trivial and amusing. It was important because Palin is anything but. And we need to remember that.
So please. Everyone. I am begging you. Do not participate in or encourage the aw-shucks redemption of Sarah Palin - or any other unrepentant nightmare person, for that matter. She does not deserve it. She is the same person she was in 2008 (though seemingly even more desperate and eager to pander) and she is still actively trying to make the world worse.
