Pitch Perfect Tina Fey

Good golly, go out of town for just a few days, and miss this one. Thank goodness for the Internets storing all that "live" television on digital. Queen Latifa and Tina Fey go to town in last week's Saturday Night Live opening skit:

It's hard to justify being "for" this woman

We at Lesbians For Sarah Palin are finding ourselves increasingly struggling to be "for" Sarah Palin. Despite her eye-candy cuteness, she simply lacks ... the brain. The whole librarian look is clearly a false front. What lives beneath the mask, I guess we'll never know. Because performances like this bizarre interview with Katie Couric pretty much ensure derailment of this Republican ticket.

And to think we thought it would take a scandal to bring down this woman! She's bringing down herself! Too bad, really, that this is the most high profile woman in politics (or anything else) right now. Too bad we'll all be logging into the debates on Thursday just to see if she can actually make MORE of an ass of herself than she did in this interview. (And yes, this is the real Sarah Palin, not an actress making fun of her.)

Of course, TINA FEY would be a wonderful replacement. She certainly knows how to learn her lines quickly and do some improv. So for a comparison -- and in the event you want to vote for the Woman Who Plays Sarah Palin on TV -- here is the absolutely dead-ringer imitation of the Queen of Alaska.

Gina, Get Your Gun

Gina Gershon isn't a lesbian, but if you've ever seen "Bound," you know she plays one so well that she might as well be an honorary member of the sisterhood. That's one reason Lesbians For Sarah Palin was so tickled to see her playing our favorite politic-ho in this GREAT video found on Funny or Die. Another reason is that Gina takes off her clothes! Yummy, yummy....

About Lesbians for Sarah Palin*

Bubba remains concerned that I've not made it clear enough to readers that this site is not advocating that anyone VOTE for Sarah Palin. "Yes, she's hot, but a qualified VP she's not," would be Bubba's motto if she were the one writing and updating this fair blog. But she's not. So the qualifiers and caveats are my responsibility. Thus:

Frankly, I think it's pretty damn obvious that Lesbians For Sarah Palin is an homage to what is WRONG with our political system. Just the idea that any self-respecting lesbian might actually vote for a whacked-out, anti-gay, anti-choice creationist Christian fundamentalist seems so anathema to common sense and human decency that I don't think it needs to be said quite as explicitly as that. But there you have it anyway.

The raison d'etre for Lesbians For Sarah Palin is simple: The crazy lady known as Sarah Palin is the hottest-looking, most scrumptious naughty-librarian ideologue to stroll across the political stage in ALL OF AMERICAN HISTORY. Lesbians everywhere have swollen clits for this gal in glasses who seems to play butch just as swell as she plays femme. WHAT IS A QUEER GIRL TO DO if not get a little horny over the whole sordid thing?

It also presents an opportunity to play mind games with the right-wingers, as well as make a complete mockery of how gender is being USED by the Republicans to manipulate culturally shallow and politically anesthetized middle American voters. It's the queer way of saying something that needs to be said.

Why the hell would lesbians be for Sarah Palin? For the same damn idiotic reason ANYONE ELSE would be for Sarah Palin!

Eye candy. That's it; that's all. It's not like she has other qualifications.

So the idea, once again, is that we welcome Sarah Palin at every single campaign stop she makes -- if she's ever seen in public again -- with truckloads of lesbians in flannel and lipstick (all are welcome!) bearing signs declaring our fondness for her as a sex object: "Lesbians (Heart) Sarah Palin," "Hockey Dykes For Sarah Palin" and such.

But to hell with the idea of voting for this anti-woman woman. We just aren't SICK like that.

Despite Alaska being a place where, as it has been frequently pointed out, lesbian gaydar is essentially rendered useless (as the photo above illustrates quite well), it seems that women of all sexual orientations are not fond of their governor.

A friend forwarded me an e-mail packed with pictures of a large rally, by Anchorage standards, of women in opposition to Sarah Palin. With about 1,400 people in attendance, the e-mail's author claimed that this was the largest political rally ever held in Alaska's history. And yet, it has received scant attention from the media. Rather, what we hear repeatedly about Alaskans and Sarah Palin is that she has the "highest approval ratings" of any U.S. governor, said to be somewhere in the area of 80 percent.

However, these photos tell a story of a very vocal opposition to the well-manicured sex muffin that is Sarah Palin. And because Lesbians For Sarah Palin is ultimately an *anti* Sarah Palin site -- (have I made it clear enough, Bubba?) -- we are including these photos and urging you all to participate in Sarah Palin rallies of your own.

Please, above all, make a mockery of Republican politics and give it Sarah Palin anyway you like. Bubba simply requests you always state your admiration and sexual attraction for Sarah Palin with an asterisk. Specifically: "She's hot.*"

* But we sure as hell aren't voting for her.

Queer Girl Ode to Sarah Palin

The sound quality of this YouTube video isn't the best, thanks in part to being recorded in a bathroom, but the sweetness of this queer girl ode, "Me and Sarah Palin," hits just the right notes in the minds of Lesbians For Sarah Palin. ... But then, so does the "I Masturbated to Sarah Palin" video in the previous post. Enjoy! -LFSP

Sex, dreams and Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin hasn't shown up in *any* of my dreams yet, but I'm betting it's just a matter of time. Seems she's showing up in the nocturnal mind-wanderings of many others, however, as this Slate article reveals.

What I don't get is why Slate mentioned that "both men and straight women reported sexual fantasies involving the Alaska governor." Did not a single queer woman write to slate with a Sarah Palin Sex Dream? (If you have a dream, I encourage you to share it with all of us via the "Comments" link below.")

Maybe we're not dreaming about her because so many of us are out and talking about how sexy she is. She doesn't need to slip into awareness through our unconscious in the dark of night. She's a frontal lobe and limbic experience in broad daylight.

So I'm gathering, anyway, from the conversations I'm having with more and more queer women about her (and plenty of straight women, too). Just the other night at a gathering of several women, I listened to an attractive and *strong* African-American woman -- a personal trainer and massage therapist -- talk about how she'd be "happy to do Sarah Palin," with some rather vivid descriptions of her desire to make Sarah Palin "bite the pillow." (Might be easier to get her to "bite the bear hide," by the way.)

"Yeah, I'd do her alright," she said. "The question is, would she do me? I mean, I'm thinking, hey, while you're here, do a sister a favor, will you, and get down on it."

This about made a straight White woman in attendance nearly lose it. "Oh, c'mon! The lesbians *can't* be going for Sarah Palin. I mean, I know abortion isn't that much of an issue for y'all in terms of needing them, but still... you just can't be! That's crazy!"

"Did you listen to me?" the first woman asked. "I said I would DO Sarah Palin. That's not saying I'd have anything TO DO WITH HER when it was over. Big difference between giving her a piece of my action and giving that bitch my vote. I'm not crazy."

That said, I'm going to hit the hay now and see if perhaps tonight's the night. Calling Sarah Palin, calling Sarah Palin! If you come to me in a dream, let it be a dream worth coming. I'm thinking you've got a leather bustier under your librarian garb. Perhaps you'll let your hair down and show me a good time in the stacks?
