Okay, so let’s all spill about this election and who we’re all voting for in two weeks…
But we can do is break presidential mugs all day (looks like we’re getting kicked out of the White House already) and spill about how every single election year brings us some of the greatest pop culture moments that have ever stepped into our lives, including….Madonna’s Rock the Vote campaign, Sarah Palin as Tina Fey, Bob Dole’s obsession with Britney, anything and everything from SNL, and many, many more as they’re all here as we inch just a bit closer to…..the day.
Hey, it’s a stressful world out there, so let’s all laugh (or maybe laugh some more) together at part one of 24 of the most entertaining election pop culture moments….ever. Right, George Dub-Ya?
1.Katie Couric interviews Sarah Palin as Tina Fey…. So, everyone knows who former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin is, right? Seriously…how could we ever fucking forget. But perhaps the best part of her whole John McCain-ified existence in 2008 was when she stopped by SNL and did the best Tina Fey impersonation anyone’s ever seen and went up against Amy Poehler’s spot on (or should we say blinked on) impression of Katie Couric during all of those CBS Evening News interviews where the only thing that we truly learned was that Palin was certain she could see Russia from her house and that she didn’t know a god damn thing. Sigh…
Go right here for this….
2.Bill Clinton never stopped…thanks to Fleetwood Mac. Picture it–1993. A freshly inaugurated Bill Clinton was in his prime to begin serving his first term as President of the United States. Of course, no true first baller is complete without the perfect inauguration jam, which is why Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop” was the perfect tune to be by his pre-Monica side. Not only did the classic banger get stuck in everyone’s heads once again, but it also put Fleetwood Mac back into mainstream territory where they would embark on a successful reunion tour that would no doubt further cement them as true rock legends. Of course, we’ll also be reminiscing on Mr. Clinton’s sax-y Arsenio Hall stop in part two, but for now, don’t you ever stop because (the) Clinton(s) never did. Oh, and Michael Jackson was there, too. Classic.
3.Hillary & Val…. There’s really nothing to say here except watch the future Madame President of the United States (we hope..and stop the fucking shade already) play “Val the Bartender take on herself (aka the god damn brilliant Kate McKinnon) and put on a performance that’s fun, loose, candid and everything we hope Hill will be once she snatches the oval office up in a few weeks.
4.Bob Dole really loves Britney…. Although U.S. Senator Bob Dole lost against Bill Clinton in 1996, he certainly won in 2000 when he popped up in Ms. Britney Spears now legendary Pepsi commercial. Bah…bah..bah…bah..bah…the joy of it all, indeed.
5.Will & Grace really love Hillary….Karen, not so much….A few months back before it all began, Will & Grace stars Debra Messing (Grace), Eric McCormack (Will), Megan Mullally (Karen) and Sean Hayes(Jack) teased our red, white and werk lives by announcing they were about to do…something once again. Little did we know that it would be a short skit urging everyone to get out and vote for Hillary, honey, right, Ms. Walker? Just watch.
7.And this…. Go on, Ms. Aretha…and your fabulous hat (?), too…
8.Obama gives Donald Trump debate advice… Just another one of the 675, 431 reasons to still be completely obsessed with Mr. Jimmy Fallon.
9.Anytime Will Ferrell took on George Dub-Ya… If there was one impression that SNL legend Will Ferrell had down and then some, it was his portrayal of former President George Dub-Ya Bush that hit home for….all of us. If you’ll remember (another one we can’t fucking forget), Ferrell had it all down, including a fine roster of all of the dumb shit Bush used to say out loud, case in point, this global warming spoof video where Bush was, you know, just playing golf on his Texas ranch with Condee and Cheney. Watch.
11.Dana Carvey as Ross Perot and George Bush Sr……. Everything and everything on both (almost) presidential accounts. Think about it…
12. This pretty much sums it all up….
