IS PALIN AS UNINFORMED ABOUT POP CULTURE AS SHE IS ABOUT POLITICS?
I didn't want to post anything about Sarah Palin's Today show appearance this morning, but I couldn't help noticing this in the Politico recap:
Asked if she had seen the movie "Game Change" -- based on the book John Heilemann and Mark Halperin that takes a close look at Palin's struggles as the VP candidate -- she answered, "I didn't see the movie and I wouldn't waste my time seeing the movie. I didn’t see 'Game Change,' no, because I don't want to waste my time," before adding, "But I do have to admit that Tina Fey has been pretty clever."
Does she literally not know that she's played in Game Change by Julianne Moore, not Tina Fey?
I was also struck by this in the Politico story:
But as fans of the show gathered outside at Rockefeller Center holding up posters and cheering in front of the cameras, Palin showed off a strikingly different personality than her usual serious self on Fox News.
Dear Politico: I don't think the word "serious" means what you think it means.
