Palin Dances to Her Own Beatdown

10/19/2008 11:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Finally seeing Tina Fey and Sarah Palin in the same place was great -- but the best part of "SNL" last night came when Sarah Palin kept the beat while Amy Poehler railed her with a rap song.

The combination of Poehler's dancing Eskimos, the first dude busting moves in a ski suit behind her and a fake moose killing really nailed Palin -- and we don't mean the old-fashioned way.

Thank God Governor Palin and musical guest Adele were on that show otherwise I would not have watched. SNL has lost it's touch. Guess I don't need or want to watch again. Yet more free time - Thanks Hollywood Liberals!

I still haven't figure out why they don't do this to Michelle Obama. Remember she just started to love her country when her husband ran for president.

I think it was gracious of Sarah palin to go on SNL and work with the staff there. Alec Baldwin is a smug fool. Palin should have asked Baldwin to call his daughter, y'all remeber that?

Another Republican endorsing Obama!!!! SORRY CONS :)

Colin Powell endorses Obama

* Story Highlights
* NEW: Obama thanks Powell, tells him he wants his advice, aide says
* Ex-Secretary of State Colin Powell voting for Barack Obama
* Powell makes announcement on "Meet the Press" Sunday
* John McCain says announcement does not come as a surprise


(CNN) -- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell announced Sunday that he will be voting for Sen. Barack Obama, citing the Democrat's "ability to inspire" and the "inclusive nature of his campaign."
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says he is voting for Barack Obama.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says he is voting for Barack Obama.

"I think he is a transformational figure, he is a new generation coming onto the world stage, onto the American stage, and for that reason I'll be voting for Sen. Barack Obama," Powell said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Powell said he was concerned about what he characterized as a recent negative turn of Republican candidate Sen. John McCain's campaign, such as the campaign's attempts to tie Obama to former 1960s radical Bill Ayers.

"I think that's inappropriate. I understand what politics is about -- I know how you can go after one another, and that's good. But I think this goes too far, and I think it has made the McCain campaign look a little narrow. It's not what the American people are looking for," he said.

Powell, a retired U.S. general and a Republican, was once seen as a possible presidential candidate himself.

Powell said he has some concerns about the direction of the Republican Party, adding that it has "moved more to the right than I would like to see it." Read a transcript of Powell's remarks

In regard to the financial crisis, which Powell called the candidates' "final exam," Powell said McCain appeared unsteady in dealing with it, while Obama had excelled in handling the situation.


"Obama displayed a steadiness, an intellectual curiosity, a depth of knowledge," Powell said. Video Watch what Powell says about Obama »

"He has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president," he said.

During the campaign, Powell has met with both candidates and said he has a lot of respect for McCain. He said Sunday that he thinks both candidates are qualified to be president.

"It isn't easy for me to disappoint Sen. McCain in the way that I have this morning, and I regret that," Powell said.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, McCain said he respects and admires Powell, and the announcement "doesn't come as a surprise."

"I'm also very pleased to have the endorsement of four former secretaries of state -- Secretaries [Henry] Kissinger, [James] Baker, [Lawrence] Eagleburger, and [Alexander] Haig -- and I'm proud to have the endorsement of well over 200 retired Army generals and admirals," McCain said.

Obama called Powell on Sunday and thanked him for his endorsement, communications director Robert Gibbs said.

In their 10-minute conversation, Obama said he looked forward to taking advantage of Powell's advice in the next two weeks and hopefully over the next four years, Gibbs said.

Powell served as Secretary of State under President Bush from 2001 to 2005.

The possibility of a Powell endorsement has been rumored for several months.

On August 13, Powell's office denied a report on Fox News by commentator Bill Kristol that Powell had decided to publicly back Obama at the Democratic National Convention.

Powell himself brushed off queries on any potential presidential nod but told ABC News in August that he would not be going to Denver, Colorado, for the convention.

Back in February, Powell told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that he was weighing an endorsement of a Democratic or independent candidate.

Powell has offered praise for Obama, calling him an "exciting person on the political stage."

"He has energized a lot of people in America," said Powell. "He has energized a lot of people around the world. And so I think he is worth listening to and seeing what he stands for."

The former general, who has largely steered clear of politics since leaving the Bush administration, noted that the next president will need to work to restore America's standing in the world.

Powell gave the keynote address at the Republican National Convention in support of George W. Bush in 2000.

Oh shut the hell up Lenn K. Michelle is a beautiful example of just how wonderful America is. She knows that and has said so many times. I am American and I love this country and understand exactly what she meant. There are times I am more proud of this country than others. I am very proud of this country for the first time in a long time today. This is what America is about. Look at Barack Obama's audiences--------multiracial, old and young, rich and poor, Dems and Repubs...and Independents standing TOGETHER. By contrast look at Sen. McCain and Palins audiences....just a sea of white....ignorant, backward whites. That's a great shame and not representative of this country at all. If you can't see that you are a fool! EVERYONE else can see it! That's why they are lining up in support of Barack Obama. There was a time in this country when African American men went off to war yet returned home to have other AMERICANS spit on them or have them sit at the back of the damned bus!!! Do you think they were proud to have fought for their country..YES but do you think they were PROUD of America at that time?????? NO! So yes, many people...white, black, Hispanic...whatever are VERY PROUD of this country today in a way they have never been before. We finally have someone that speaks for most of us in the country...not a small portion..not just small town Americans...but ALL Americans!

Michelle Obama would cry racism in a second. She has no sense of humor and likely couldn't take the heat of any comedy skit.

That's obvious by your lame skits and sh&*ty writing. You don't care if anyone likes your show. Hopefully you'll go off the air.
