When I divide Paul Rudd’s career into Canon-Rudd and Lower-Rudd, “Clueless” always gets placed in the Canon-Rudd movies. Even after all this time, what a great movie – and who knew how relevant it would be so many years later? as Michael Berube pointed out, isn’t the Palin ClothingGate story’s excuse, that the clothing is going to charity, very similar to that scene in Clueless where Cher is donating to charity?
Besides, as Gov. Palin justly points out, these clothes are not her property. They’re going to charity. All across America, needy women will be warmed this winter by the high-necked jackets made famous by Sarah Barracuda. It’s sort of like that moment in Clueless when Cher donates her new skis and tennis racquet to the victims of a natural disaster:
McCain: Sarah, what are you doing?
Palin: I’m captain of the Pismo Beach disaster relief.
McCain: I don’t think they need the Valentino Garavani jacket you wore for your acceptance speech.
Palin: Daddy, some people lost all their belongings. Don’t you think that includes ensembles from Saks?
