Making fun of political candidates is not unusual, especially when it comes to Tea Party Queen Sarah Palin. Palin was at the 2013 Iowa Faith and Freedom Conference over the weekend, which has led some people to speculate once again that she may be gearing up for a presidential run. On MSNBC’S The Ed Show, guest comedian and liberal commentator John Fugelsang, gave us some entertainment by mocking Governor Palin’s new book tour and compared her to the much insufferable and annoying Star Wars character, Jar-Jar Binks, saying “She does for the GOP what Jar Jar Binks did for Star Wars Episode 1. She distracts the easily amused from a total lack of narrative.”
Fugelsang pronounced that within the next 10 years, Palin will
“be the first-ever major party ticket candidate to one day host a cosmetics infomercial…her job is it to keep herself in the media eye, she’s very good at doing that. She is going to talk about the War on Christmas and make that her new pet issue with the book that somebody else wrote. And that should be pretty effective. Telling people who are the religious majority they’re an abused minority will never make you go broke.”
Fugelslang may have been onto something with his reference to Jar-Jar. Say what you will about the bumbling, annoying, and foolish Gungan from the planet Naboo, at least Jar-Jar maintained an honest career.
