Snippets and Snappets

November 22, 2008

Seems as if the next Cabinet appointees for Barack Obama will be Timothy Geither, Hillary Clinton, Janet Napolitano and Bill Richardson. Too bad Amy Poehler and Horatio Sanz aren’t on SNL anymore, I guess.

Speaking of SNL, it’s new tonight, so barring any unforseen circumstances, I will be reviewing it. Of course, before we get to that, we must start by introducing the awesomeness that are the annual winter GAP ads. Last year, there was the Amy Poehler and Will Arnett ad. The John Krasinski ad. You know, adorable funny people looking all cozy in scarves and such. This year, the ads contain Jason Bateman and his precious little daughter Francesca, Jon Hamm and his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt, Jason Sudeikis and Fred Armisen, and Will Forte and Seth Meyers. The SNL cast decided to go the sneering tough guy route instead of the adorable route, and it is not convincing me to buy a scarf. Only adorable makes me want to buy a scarf. Because all I want to do is wrap myself up in your scarves of adorableness, people. And right now, based on the ads, I’d rather wrap myself up in a scarf with Mary Louise Parker than Jason Sudeikis. And that means something is wrong with the world. Well, my world. See the rest of the GAP ads here.



Not cozy.

Not cozy.

Now let’s all snuggle. We can invite Stephen Colbert and Rahm Emanuel.



At the 20th Annual Roast for Spina Bifida, Emanuel roasted the hell out of a bunch of people. It’s what he does. But then they kissed and made up and all was well.

“I’m scared of Stephen Colbert. I’m not alone. My colleagues in Congress, political operatives, the top minds in Washington, even some of the people in this room — we’re all scared of Stephen Colbert… We’re scared of Stephen Colbert in the same way Sarah Palin is scared of a geography bee. We’re scared of him the same way that John Edwards is scared of the National Enquirer. Mary Matalin is scared of Stephen, and she’s seen Carville naked! … Even Hillary Clinton is scared of Colbert, and this makes no sense to me — she is a woman who braved sniper fire at the Battle of Bosnia’s Airport. We’re frightened of Colbert, but we know that deep down, underneath the Republican character you see on TV, there’s still a good man, there’s still hope for him. It’s the same way we feel about Joe Lieberman.”

Thank you, Rahm Emanuel, for being so fantastic.

And to bring the Olympics back into it, People Magazine has named Michael Phelps as one of the Sexiest Men Alive. There is also a fancy, schmancy (ie. creepy) new feature this issue: SCRATCH AND SNIFF! Yes, folks, someone in print thought that it would be a good idea to give the women the option to scratch and sniff their hunks. And as much as I love Michael Phelps, I have no desire to scratch and/or sniff his abs. Phelps’ favorite scent is alledgedly L’Homme YSL, which just seems more marketing than legitimate favorite scent. They should’ve mixed in a little bit of money with the scent, smell the marketing, Michael. Smell the happy.
