The Palin-Pope Twitter War

Enjoy the (fictional) Twitter war between Pope Francis and Sarah Palin — as documented on tonight’s “Real Time with Bill Maher”:

My favorite part:

The fake Palin tweeted back, “Bring back Pope Benedict!” to which the Pope said, “You WOULD prefer the one who quit in office.”

    I’m glad they said it was fake.
    I couldn’t tell the difference if it was Poe or Palin.

  • Korry DeAndre Shepard

    HAHAHA! I love Bill Maher, he usually tells it how it is mostly.

  • newavocation

    It’s all about ratings and dollars. I’m ready for the cage match.

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    Aw, but I want to see the crusade and mini-head explosion that Donohue would go through when it came down between supporting the pope and supporting that is more vocal in supporting his views.

    et tu, Hemant?? that fuckin idiot Palin will NEVER go away if you keep talking about her! way to give that idiot what she wants by mentioning her name. :/

    ignore her and she’ll go away. resist the urge to mention her, EVEN THOUGH doing so means lots of sweet, sweet, webpage hits. Do humanity a solid, dude, and just STOP talking about her, ESPECIALLY joking about her. just stop. please.

      We don’t want her to go away. She’s a walking, talking, liberal/Democrat recruitment campaign! Nothing we say about conservatives could be more damning to them than just handing her a microphone!

        Walking, yes. Talking, ehhh. To be able to talk, you have to understand what you’re saying; this is why parrots are called mimics, even though they can say things that to a human sound like a coherent sentence.

        They need someone to teach them one phrase at a time, whenever they try to create a new sentence out of words they already know, they just end up with a hilarious word salad

  • StevesWeb

    “Quit while in office” Ms Palin deserved that one.

  • baal

    Nope. Maher was unfunny on this one. I cannot get behind faked imaginings of humiliation of your political or identity group enemies. It fails as sarcasm for me.
