Lily Tomlin's newest video blasts Gov. Sarah Palin and Fox News' Neil Cavuto
But Tomlin forgot to bring the funny.
The ageless comedian's new "humor" clip can be seen at The Women on the Web's site
. In it, she dresses up as her iconic Ernestine character, the opinionated telephone operator, to lash out at those she thinks are cruel to animals. It plays out like one of Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" rants. Yeah, that bad.
When did comedians give up on making us laugh?
Naturally, Gov. Palin's animal hunting from helicopters theme comes up first. Next, Ernestine rails against Cavuto for suggesting lobsters don't feel pain when they're being boiled.
Tomlin can certainly make whatever argument she pleases, but can't she at least amuse us at the same time?
The funniest part, and not ha ha funny, is that Tomlin treats Michael Vick with far less anger and venom than she delivers to Cavuto or Gov. Palin.
Tomlin feels weird judging Vick, the chronic dog abuser, but not the Alaskan Governor. Hmmm.
