Escaped humiliation again.

Courtesy of The Hill:

Sacha Baron Cohen’s undercover show ended its first and only season without airing a highly anticipated interview with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R).

Palin was one of the first Republican figures to admit to being duped by Cohen for his Showtime series, “Who is America?”

Earlier this year, Palin revealed details of the encounter, saying that Cohen disguised himself as a wounded veteran and tricked her into an interview, which she ultimately walked out of.

The finale of the show, which aired Sunday evening, did not include the recorded interview. Palin told “Good Morning America” last month that the interview was “bizarre, really embarrassing, humiliating.”

The episode did include a shout-out to Palin in the credits, listing her as a “Special Publicity Consultant (Inadvertent.)”

So Cohen used her freakout over being possibly humiliated on cable TV to promote his show in the very beginning, and then chickened out and refused to air it? 

That is just bullshit. 

I mean the show had some geat cringe-worthy moment, but I was really looking forward to seeing Palin’s face when she realized that she had been pranked once again. 

I actually did not watch last night’s episode very closely, because I had it on as my daughter and I were in the middle of a passionate conversation about human migration out of Africa. 

To be honest, that was far more entertaining than anything Showtime had to offer that night. 

So now we are left to wonder if this lost episode of “Who is America” will disappear forever, or whether it will make an appearance sometime in the future. 

At this point, I have no idea.

    How fitting. SBC knew that palin was just itching for yet another little ‘showdown’ desperately hoping to get her name in the news for a couple more minutes. No dice, Trixie.

    I’m glad the segment was not shown. No one should want more Sarah Palin self-pity episodes. We’ve more than tolerated them. It’s really time for the whole Palin family to retreat to Wasilla for the next several hundred years.

      Several hundred years? That would mean that they continue to procreate, and Lord knows we suffered enough with what’s already here.

    If You Watch Nothing Else of Who Is America?, Watch the Segment With O.J. Simpson

    The finale of the Sacha Baron Cohen series mingled slaughter and laughter to horrific—and revealing—effect.

    …This time, the stunt-happy satirist was playing “Gio,” an Italian playboy, host of the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous–style show La Vita Diamante di Gio. Gio was meeting in a Las Vegas hotel suite with one such diamond-life-haver, a person introduced as “an American hero and women’s rights activist.” That person, the show soon revealed, was … O.J. Simpson.

    The segment goes like this: Gio introduces his girlfriend, “Christina,” to O.J.; she professes to have no idea who Simpson is (this despite Gio’s references to “Buffalo Bill” and the Naked Gun films). Christina’s confusion is brief, though; Gio proceeds to make stabbing motions into her chest with his hand, at which point her face lights up with recognition. “She knows that, oh Jesus,” Simpson says, shaking his head and—this will be a theme in the segment—laughing. And then “Gio” tries, repeatedly, to coax O.J. into confessing to the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. After Christina leaves the room, Gio confesses to O.J. that “she’s gorgeous but sometimes I want to kill her,” and that “I want to send her on a private helicopter and throw her over the Grand Canyon—oopsie daisy!” Gio jokes about having her do a bungee jump where the cord isn’t long enough; O.J. tentatively replies that the cord could also be too long, to the same effect. “Me and you, we got something in common,” Gio says: “We both, how you say, ‘ladykillers’?” At this, again, O.J. laughs, uncomfortably.

      That sounds like shocking and entertaining TV. I’d watch it.

    OT The White House has made an official acknowledgement of McCain’s death and ordered the flags at half mast. Trump had to add he agreed to military transportation. Trump fucks up as usual.

    Oh please, do tell us more about your passionate conversation with your daughter about human migration.

      Perhaps you’d be better suited discussing poop teas on Palin sites.

        It probably was so bad they decided it wasn’t worth airing.

        Similar to the Katie Couric interview,they cut the worst part and sarah was still an idiot.

    “IT” probably threatened to sue. Typical.

      No doubt she did. What’s wrong, cupcake, you can’t suck it up as you tell others to? So thin skinned, she SO wanted to be in that elite circle. Ten long years of whining that she didn’t fit the bill.

      “I’ll show them!” So Christian, isn’t it? She has not learned one thing through it. Incapable.

        You are right.

        Her pussy is too big. Her tits are too small.

    Last I saw, she’s not on the docket to make her “sacred speech” his memoriall, like she wanted to concession 2008 when she was told, “this is not how it works,” and they turned the lights off on her onstage.

    More like she’s such an irrelevant has-been her spot didn’t make the cut. He had much BETTER fodder for his show he didn’t need her. But hey, thanks for the free PR, Sarah. Basically. Sarah was double punked. First by the spot and next by them NOT showing the interview.

      Let’s not forget the Iowa speech endorsing him, and he stood there like a stupid idiot making his faces, on to Oklahoma and wisely chose to stand on the floor watching her. I could not stop laughing! She was never asked back, even second round RNC.

      C’mon, “lady,” who you do think you are, while she and daughter shield sat at the Iowa airport between flights with security guards. I’ve been in that airport. She’s just so freaking stupid and self-important!

      Sorry, Gryph and fellow IMers, but I just die laughing at her, her tribe, and the desperation to be someone. In the name of the Lord, of course.

      Lol! Sarah served her purpose, to publicize the show of a man she hates. Then he turned the tables and denied her the publicity she lives for. I wonder if she will grumble about not being shown?

    Maybe Michael Moore will use the footage for something.

    Sarah Palin isn’t funny or interesting, her only skill is being nasty with words that other people have written for her.

    But SBC is correct, without Sarah Palin running all over town playing the victim for attention nobody would know about his show.

    I watched about 4 minutes of the first episode, I didn’t think it was anything special- after all, you can see idiot Republicans being stupid any hour of the day or night anywhere you care to name, they’re kind of hard to avoid.

    I’m pretty sure Palin was disappointed not to be on the teevee for any reason at all.

    She probably made him look bad by walking out. The whole idea was to trick people and she wasn’t tricked. She was disgusted and left as a moral person would have. That was my take. And it echoes willows comments about how fake and gross he was.

      Who gives a tinker’s damn what Willer thinks? Shouldn’t she be focusing on her nuptials with Ricky Bobbie and praying it lasts longer than role model Brissy’s?
      Sorry, not buying it, H. $arah looked the fool no DOUBT, else why the conniption fit?

      Well, one thing CAN be said about Queen Heifer. Let her flit around acting all important, it’s still a free country (for now). Both Steve Schmidt and Nicholle Wallace said a decade ago, “let her try to run for office again. It will ALL come out.” It wasn’t a threat. A promise.

      He refused to let her go off on a rant and wouldn’t accept her “hard-bodied warrior” bullshit is my guess. Maybe he brought up the truth about Track Palin’s past, about his youth before he was press-ganged into the army and out of her hair. Maybe he asked what happened to Jill the Puppy Jake service dog haha. Sarah Palin knows that Sacha Baron Cohen is world famous, she loves the limelight and she wouldn’t give up all that attention unless she was losing the fight.

      And of course he was fake and gross, all of characters are fake and gross and he is always in character. Maybe you need to get out more.
