Palin Rap: "I Built Me A Bridge, It Ain't Going Nowhere!"

Illustration for article titled Palin Rap: "I Built Me A Bridge, It Ain't Going Nowhere!"

Amy Poehler is a hilarious and brilliant comedian, but even her skills on the mic, (including the line, "Shoot a motherhumping moose 8 days a week!") couldn't quite save the "Palin Rap" on last night's Weekend Update. Claiming that she was stepping in for the Governor, Amy rapped about hunting, a bridge to nowhere, and, perhaps most awkwardly, included a "When I say Obama, you say Ayers" reference that seemed to fall flat with the audience. Palin played along as Amy and crew mocked her, but the whole thing was a bit like watching your drunk Uncle Morty take the mic at a wedding and rock out to "We Didn't Start The Fire." You appreciate his attempt and giggle at his rhymes, but honestly, the whole thing is kind of embarrassing and in the end, you just kind of want it to be over. Clip after the jump. If you're not in the US, you can watch the clip here.



I have to respectfully disagree with Hortense. I think the rap lyrics were hilarious, and Amy knocked that right out of the park.
