Newsbusters’ Mark Finklestein has the video of Chevy Chase’s review (he appeared — where else? — on MSNBC) of Tina Fey’s excellent impression of Sarah Palin on SNL this weekend. The long-since unfunny Chase (hey, fall down some stairs, Chevy!) sought out the cameras to promote his efforts
to brainwash children to fund environmental education in schools.
Decimate: 1. to destroy a great number or proportion of: the population was decimated by a plague. 2. to select by lot and kill every tenth person of.
Is that the definition of the post-partisan politics Barack Obama claims to be preaching? You know, the kind where there’s no blue-state America or red-state America: just the United States of America? Maybe Chevy Chase didn’t get the email. Appearing on Morning Joe today, Chase expressed his disappointment that Tina Fey didn’t go after Sarah Palin harder in her SNL impersonation. Chase wanted to see Fey “decimate” the Republican VP candidate.
Chase was appearing to tout a charity auction he and wife Jayni are conducting to fund environmental education in the schools. See Bonus Coverage for a disturbing factoid Jayni let slip. Chase’s call for blood came in response to Willie Geist’s very first question.
