As you may have heard, screeching Alaskan hair monster Sarah Palin came out of hibernation yesterday to resume her traveling talking head circus act on Fox News. This, of course, is distressing news for all of us who suffer from Sarah Palin fatigue, which is most of us. But then last night on the Daily Show, John Oliver offered some sage advice on how to handle the sudden resurrection of the living, breathing YouTube comment.
“F*ck it, this is exactly what she wants. Just because I walked into a turd supermarket doesn’t mean I have to buy anything,” Oliver said after playing a clip of Sarah Palin being Sarah Palin on Fox & Friends. After pleading with America to “just f*cking ignore her,” Oliver remarked, “I promise America it will feel so good. It will be like we give our brains an enema together.”
As an added bonus, Linda Cardellini from Mad Men was the guest on the show last night. Did you know that she won a fireplace on The Price Is Right when she was 19? NEITHER DID I!
