Remember when Slate made that video, Hillary’s Inner Tracy Flick?
Well, it seems that the Flick-ering torch has been passed tonight.
The first call comes from Andrew Sullivan live-blogging the speech.
10:47 pm: She has this weird tick of scrunching up her face to make a forceful point. Kinda Tracy Flicky.
And then, at around 11:16pm, this description of Palin on MSNBC.
Chris Matthews: Perhaps Norma Rae by the way of Tracy Flick, Reese Witherspoon’s character from Election.
Does the resurgence of this reference mean that Palin has, in fact, successfully stepped into Hillary Clinton’s shoes on the political stage?
And, more importantly, perhaps, it’s a pity that this Saturday, SNL is re-airing an old episode hosted by Tina Fey. They need her to come back asap and start working on a Palin impression!
