SNL: Sarah And Hillary

partial transcript from crooks and liars
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”…
