John Cleese: Michael Palin No Longer the Funniest Palin on Earth
October 17, 2008
Former Monty Python comedian John Cleese thinks Sarah Palin is like a parrot (from the Dead Parrot sketch, perhaps?) for the way she's been able to memorize and regurgitate Republican talking points without fully understanding them. He cautions that there's virtually no one in Europe who thinks she's qualified for the White House -- a scary thought considering she's running with a "a 72-year-old cancer survivor."
Cleese laughs, "I mean, Monty Python could have written this!"
Palin's inexperience is all the more reason why McCain's medical records should be released.
