Sarah Palin and Peter Sellers: Some Secret Agent!

Sarah Palin and Peter Sellers:

Some Secret Agent!

By Meg Curtis

042212 Where is Peter Sellers when you need him?  Can’t you just see him playing the role of a not-so-secret agent who posts his ogling routine on Facebook? Does it get any funnier than this? 

Sarah Palin didn’t think so, but she was the ogle-ee, not the ogle-er. 

Showing that leadership training which so many men doubted, on Fox News she simply said to that goofball:  "Well, check this out, buddy -- you're fired!"

Comedy writers attempting to spoof her response to a goofball secret agent have their work cut out for them. 

To find comparable material, they will need to return to the Pink Panther movies. There, pink didn’t stand for pretty, and it didn’t mean ditzy dame.  It immediately promised movie lovers more of their favorite Ditzy Dude, Inspector Clouseau. 

Ditzy Dude—Isn’t that the only reason a secret agent would post his eyeballing claims to fame on Facebook?

Ditzy Dude—Isn’t that the only reason a secret agent would also add his very own incomparable, original commentary on Facebook?  “I was really checking her out, if you know what i (sic) mean?"  [the agent]  wrote of his assignment guarding Palin, after a friend commented on the picture posted in January 2009.

How have we waited this long for another Pink Panther movie?  But this time, let’s get it out of Colombia, and out of the presidential campaign.  Let’s get it into the theaters where it belongs. 

With this new material and inspiration, the new one to come will surely top them all!   

Sarah Palin can play herself—if somebody can convince her this role is worthwhile.  She’s got the glamour, dialogue, and demeanor to put those goofballs in their place, just as Capucine did in the first series. 

For a list of the top ten Pink Panther movies, check here od/movies/tp/pink_panther_mo.htm.  Steve Martin starred in the tenth and eleventh Pink Panther movies in 2006 and 2009.

But you can vote here for another choice.  How about John Lithgow?
