We've seen it before. Hollywood seems to need to find a way, any way, to jab Governor Palin as much as possible. Case in point we have the soon to be released movie titled "Did You Hear About The Morgans?" starring Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Right in the trailer for this new laugh riot film is a jab at Palin. But it is a typically illogical jab, one that makes no sense at all. But it IS a jab and I guess logic isn't necessary to the good folks in Hollyweird if it results in a jab at Palin.
The premise is that Hugh and Jessica are a married couple from New York that witness a Mafia hit and end up in witness protection in Wyoming. The jab comes in when Parker sees her first woman in a cowboy hat and worriedly says, "Oh my God it's Sarah Palin."
Guffaws all around, eh?
Of course, the whole thing is idiotic. Sarah Palin is not known for cowboy hats. Sarah Palin is not from Wyoming. Sarah Palin is not a south westerner at all. I would suggest that even idiot New Yawkers are aware that Palin is Alaska personified, not Wyoming!
It is also a little incongruous that the movie is portraying Hugh Grant as a married man. I thought all he cared about was prostitutes?
I also have to say that Sarah Jessica Parker is looking very old in this trailer. This woman is not aging well, to be sure.
That's Hollyweird for ya.
