For a blip of time last week, there was a flurry of Condi for Vice-President chatter – which was quickly shot down as a distracting Republican attempt at “Look over there! Not at the Romney Bain fiasco!” But even if Condoleezza Rice isn’t going to be the next vice-president, Upright Citizens Brigade has been on the case with a very funny series of videos called “Vetting Mitt’s Veeps.” And we know how much the McCain campaign could have used some vetting help.
Here are their hilarious, sharp takes on the usual suspects, including angry Chris Christie, desperate Sarah Palin and in-denial Jeb Bush.
No one can come close to Tina Fey’s Palin impression, but that doesn’t matter here because the video so perfectly nails her myopia and self-absorption.
Here’s explosive Chris Christie – or maybe the Christie we suspect exists when no one is looking.
On the goofy side, Jeb Bush, aka Jeb Peterson, is determined to lose his family ties and become his own man or even his own woman.
