    teachers, and gun loving patriots all the while persuading them of his opinion by using rhetorical words and images. The comic itself displays how he feels on gun control, and how little security the public is allowed to have for themselves whether it be concealed or otherwise.

    interviewing Sarah Palin during the presidential election of 2008. Tina Fey impersonates Sarah Palin, while Katie Couric is portrayed by Amy Poehler. The two comedians mock an actual interview done by the potential vice president and journalist that was performed a few weeks prior. The 7 minute cold open, which is longer than most of their sketches, contains a plethora of communication methods to better enhance the intended message. The extensive use of nonverbal communication, terministic…

    veracity. Bertrand Russell referred to this as “popular induction”; the author also describes it as “emotional impressionability “ and “spontaneous generalization.” Another term for this fallacy could be “conventional wisdom” which John Kenneth Galbraith defined as belief that is “simple, convenient, comfortable and comforting, but not necessarily true.” The author uses the example of the popular but false perception that fireworks accidents account for more fatalities than does diabetes.

    I agree completely with both authors that Sarah Palin was not ready for Vice President of the United States. She came off as a babbling, backwoods idiot who didn’t know how to dress or talk. Although, I’m sure she was smarter than either of the authors gave her credit for. She was a conservative and both of the authors wrote for liberal papers. Cal Thomas, in “Sarah Palin: A Collapsed Souffle,” talked about how Palin was all fluff and nothing else. He actually compared her to a souffle that she…

    Women in politics are faced with a deep backlash against them taking up political positions, and this backlash is most easily identified in the sexist manner in which women are described and reported whilst in or running for office. The media is harmful in their insistence to sexualize women, such as Sarah Palin, and ignoring all aspects of her political beliefs to reflect instead upon her appearance and sexuality, taking away her power and ability to be seen as an intellectual or an equal to…

    created shows with female leads, and male sidekicks. This idea was probably unheard of twenty years ago. Some of these shows are Sheriff Callie’s Wild West, Olivia, and Peppa Pig. These are my daughter’s absolute favorite shows! Seeing shows with females in the central focus, helps reassure her opinion on how these female characters can do anything a boy can do and in most cases better. Anything you can do, I can do better! A woman, yes, a woman will be running as a presidential candidate in…

    rant into a legendary tirade. She said yeah, Clinton was a bitch, and so was she, and so was Poehler, because “bitches get shit done”, turning an insult into a rallying cry” (Henderson). Fey and Poehler do so much for feminism, they do it with humor and sass but they get people thinking about women’s rights and get others to reassess how they view women. It is necessary to note that although it may have appeared that Fey was participating on girl-on-girl hate during the 2008 campaign, she…

    this idolization of a woman’s looks and it being most important are how the media represents us all. “Women have two choices witch or sexy kitten.” (Miss Representation) No matter how hard a woman works her looks will always be seen as a prime factor in who she is as a person, whereas for men it is the opposite. This affects all women negatively in an equal way. Although it seems like the attractive women would have the upper hand they are often dehumanized and seen as a mere sex object no…

    Plot summary In the beginning of this section Tina Fey explains her proudest moment as one of the head writers on SNL. Some of the commercials they shot from the film would cost up to $100,000. However, it was a big deal to get your commercial parody made because they were permanent. (page 138-139) Tina Fey described “Choosing commercial parodies and which ones to produce always brought out the worst in everyone.” (page 139) “There was a rule that you never pushed for your own piece, ever”…

    Within the first paragraph of Shooting Dad Sarah Vowell establishes her diametric relationship with her father. Vowell says she “never subscribed to Guns & Ammo,” “did not plaster the family vehicle with National Rifle Association stickers,” and always disliked “hunter’s orange,” which implies her father delights in these activities. She reveals her anti-gun stance, and shows the pro-gun stance of her father simultaneously. The historical term “a house divided” and the phrase “Civil War…
