Amy Poehler brings back her Hillary Clinton with Tina Fey's eerily accurate Sarah Palin to castigate the media for their sexist coverage of the presidential campaign. Like Clinton, I'm a little surprised that this has become an issue now, especially after how much grief I got for complaining about it six months ago.
PALIN: Good evening, my fellow Americans. I was so excited when I was told Senator Clinton and I would be addressing you tonight.
CLINTON: And I was told I would be addressing you alone.
PALIN: Now I know it must be a little bit strange for all of you to see the two of us together, what with me being John McCain's running mate...
CLINTON: And me being a fervent supporter of Senator Barack Obama, as evidenced by this button.
PALIN: But tonight, we are crossing party lines to address the now very ugly role that sexism is playing in the campaign.
CLINTON: An issue that I am frankly surprised to hear people suddenly care about.
PALIN: You know, Hillary and I don't agree on everything...
CLINTON: Anything...I believe that diplomacy should be the cornerstone of any foreign policy.
PALIN: And I can see Russia from my house.
CLINTON: I believe global warming is caused by man...
PALIN: And I believe it's just God huggin' us closer.
CLINTON: I don't agree with the Bush Doctrine...
PALIN: And I don't know what that is.
CLINTON: But Sarah, one thing we can agree on is that sexism can never be allowed to permeate an American election.
PALIN: So please, stop Photoshopping my head on sexy bikini pictures.
CLINTON: And stop saying I have cankles.
PALIN: Don't refer to me as a MILF.
CLINTON: And don't refer to me as a "FLIRJ". I Googled what it stands for and I do not like it.
PALIN: Reporters and commentators, stop using words that diminish us, like "pretty", "attractive", "beautiful"...
CLINTON: ..."Harpy", "shrew", "boner-shrinker"...
