Ehh. It was okay. Tiny Fey was great, and Amy Poehler was great in the second one, as usual. But I have to say that first skit - after the opening Sarah Palin one, the one with the marriage proposal - was hilarious. I could barely breathe, I was laughing so hard.

I only saw the weekend update portion.

Now that she gets to meet Adele (who is British), her foreign policy experience has increased. Yay.

I didn't get a chance to see this but I did read an article and couldn't stop laughing at this:

Quote:
Palin then stood mute as Fey's "30 Rock" co-star, Alec Baldwin came into view, mistook Palin for Fey and pleaded with Michaels not to let the actor go onstage with the governor.
"This is the most important election in our nation's history and you want her, our Tina, to go out there and stand with that horrible woman?" Baldwin said.
When Michaels broke down and introduced him to Palin, Baldwin feigned embarrassment and replied, "I see. Forgive me. I feel I must say this: You are way hotter in person."
Palin, who had also helped Baldwin when he stumbled over her nickname "Caribou Barbie," got even by saying, "Thank you, and I must say, your brother Stephen is my favorite Baldwin brother."
Her getting "even" with Baldwin is nothing compared to what he said about her. I loved it, and I hope she realizes that is how many many many people feel about her.

I think this whole thing is idi-freakin-otic.
Nice that she has time to appear on SNL, but can't do some more ACTUAL interviews?

HELLOOOOOO? This is the woman that could possibly be running the country? And she has time for this $*&# ?????

I don't want to see you on some comedy show, Sarah. I want to see you ANSWERING questions, and giving the American public some actual COHERENT answers. I don't need to be entertained.



ugh. The madness continues...

That's weird. I sat there thinking, "What the hell is this? Who thought this would be funny? Even the audience isn't laughing."

Agree totally. A potential future VP can sit there and bop to a comedy rap live at midnight (I'm surprised she didn't have her baby in her arms) but not do press conferences? This does nothing but lower her already low creds.

Maybe I'm wrong but I seem to recall Clinton and Gore doing SNL while campaigning.

Yes, but they didn't avoid press conferences and interviews the way that she does.

I don't know, I'm weird.
I mean, it wasn't like I thought the whole thing was funny. But after you realized what was wrong with Sue, and she started doing things like screaming uncontrollably and saying "Her life's going to CHAANNGE! OH MY GOOOOOD!" and like convulsing, it just cracked me up.

Yep. She looked really uncomfortable in the first skit.

McCain, Obama, and now Palin have done SNL. So why hasn't Jod Biden? What's he hiding that he won't go on? There should be an investigation.

That is the point, as I see it. Most candidates hit SNL at some point. But, to do it while not doing much else, at least Meet the Press, just seems weird. What condidate doesn't go on Meet the Press?

I thought it was funny...but standing there while being mocked didn't do Palin any good politically. I think she was a dumbass for doing the show. One good press-conference would benefit her so much more.

I'm not a Palin fan, but I think she did well and was a good sport about it.

Alec Baldwin is a pig, JMO. And not because he said she was "hot". I've always felt he was a pig, even before hearing him ranting at his little girl and calling HER a "pig". So... bleah.

My favorite part was the moose coming in from the side... I don't know why but that cracked me up.

And I'm not a big Amy Poehler fan but she is just so darn pregnant it made the "rap" just that more funny IMO.

Someone on Huffington Post last night did make a good point though, the rest of the entire show (including a VERY good Obama commercial midway through) was so anti-Republican that I can't imagine that any of her "fans" tuning in enjoyed the bits she was not in.
