Sarah Palin Interviewed by ABC, Video Bloggers Respond

ABC’s Charlie Gibson interviewed the Alaskan Governor and Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin this past week and the internet was not lacking in video responses to her appearance. @Queen of Spain tipped me to a video blogger I've added to my list, James Kotecki's Video Blog on He produces a daily video blog in a short form sarcastic style similar to The Soup and The Daily Show.

While over at NewTeeVee Liz Shannon Miller posted a round up of, Weekend Vid Picks: Ladies On Sarah Palin, which includes videos from supporters and critics including this one from the sketch troupe One Hot Mess, which Liz says "gets savage. “Finally, a candidate our vaginas can relate to” is just the beginning of this assault on the girl-power-for-the-sake-of-girl-power mentality."

It's also rumored that Tina Fey may return to SNL to play the Alaskan Governor on the season premiere tonight which features an appearance by Democratic Presidential candidate Barrack Obama. There's been a lot of discussions, like this one from Friendfeed, that Hollywood should stay out of the political discourse but American actors and entertainers have the right to free speech and also vote just like Matt Damon.
