Saturday Night Live: Hey is that????

A few weeks ago I posted here how I thought Tina Fey (Sat. Night Live & 30 Rock) looked like she could be Sarah Palin's sister. I guess I wasn't the only one thinking along those lines. If you caught Saturday Night Live you know what I mean.

Barack Obama canceled his appearance on Saturday Night Live in the wake of Hurricane Ike, but Sarah Palin was still there - played by former SNL star Tina Fey. She was so good I bet she could make campaign stops as Palin and no one would know the difference.

Even the left wing cyber space dumping ground the "Huffington Post" loved it. “Brilliant” said Rachel Sklar at the Huffington Post: “Fey, the “30 Rock” creator and former SNL star, returned triumphantly to the show last night to play Palin in a brilliant impersonation, knocking it out of the park…”

Lines of the night?
A frustrated Hillary Clinton (played by Amy Poehler) on the topic of foreign affairs said, “…diplomacy should be the cornerstone of any foreign policy. Fey, as Palin, deadpanned, “And I can see Russia from my house.”

On the issue of global warming, Poehler said she believed it was “caused by man.”
Responding with a near-perfect imitation of Palin’s accent, Fey said, “And I believe it’s just God huggin’ us closer.”

Poehler wrapped up the sketch: "In conclusion, I invite the media to grow a pair. And if you can't, I will lend you mine."
