Hey, there goes a bus - and Sarah Palin being thrown under it.

Less than 72 after the election, the Republican V.P. candidate is being accused - by Fox News of all sources - of not preparing for interviews, not knowing Africa was a continent, and generally "going rogue." Whatever that means.

Check out the election post-mortem below ...

Funny stuff. Regardless of who's to blame for McCain-Palin trouncing (we'd point fingers at a guy with the middle initial W), the campaign brought us so many entertaining Sarah Palin photos and videos. And for that we are forever grateful.

"I want to make sure she’s holding on to that Sarah outfit. Because she’s gonna need it in the next four years." - Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, offering "a little advice to Tina Fey" at a recent campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio.

Those be fightin' words!

Apparently confident of her chances of being elected Vice President of the United States tomorrow, the Republican contender told her now-infamous Saturday Night Live impersonator not to put away those rimless glasses and updo just yet.

She could have four more years of material, in other words.

Tina Fey, who was chief writer of SNL before leaving to star in 30 Rock, but has become a frequent SNL guest star this fall, had said that she hopes to "retire" her Sarah Palin impersonation for good this month. If you know what she means.

She means she hopes John McCain and Sarah Palin go down. Whether she gets her wish remains to be seen, but the future of late-night comedy depends on it.

With the election just two days away, Arizona Sen. and Republican presidential hopeful John McCain made fun of himself last night on Saturday Night Live.

His running mate, Sarah Palin, was simply made fun of by others.

Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel, a radio duo known as Masked Avengers and famous for their prank phone calls (often to celebrities) in Montreal, Quebec, released a recording of a six-minute call to the Alaska Governor.

Sarah Palin thought she was speaking with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Despite numerous hints - an exaggerated accent, ridiculous comments and jokes left and right - that this was bogus, Palin didn't appear to pick up on them.

In the conversation, the impersonators discuss, among other things, the "Joe le Plumber," shooting animals from helicopters, and Carla Bruni in bed. Really.

Listen to the prank call in the clip below...

With the presidential election just days away, Republican candidate John McCain drew laughs – often at his own expense – on Saturday Night Live last night.

In response to Barack Obama's purchase of airtime on several major networks on Wednesday night, McCain lamented that he could only afford airtime on QVC.

"I'm a true Maverick: a Republican without money!" the Arizona Senator joked that, "My only showbiz connections are Jon Voight and Heidi from The Hills."

By his side were wife Cindy McCain, who lent a hand selling "McCain Fine Gold Jewelry," and his running mate Sarah Palin ... a.k.a. SNL alum Tina Fey.

Here's the opening Saturday Night Live sketch ...

Two Saturdays ago, comedic worlds collided as Tina Fey's Sarah Palin came face to face at least with the real Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live.

Fey's 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin, who was also on hand, shared his impressions of the Republican Vice Presidential candidate with David Letterman.

While he spoke very kindly of the show, and of Sarah Palin for the most part, Baldwin simply couldn't resist referring to the Alaska Governor as "Bible Spice" and not "someone who [he] wanted her hand on the nuclear button at any point."

Here's a portion of his Late Show interview ...

Tina Fey says Sarah Palin offered to have 17-year-old Bristol Palin babysit Fey's three-year-old daughter Alice on filming Saturday Night Live two weeks ago.

"Gov. Palin was like, 'Oh, did Alice go home? Oh, 'cause Bristol woulda' babysat.' She offered Bristol Palin to babysit Alice," Fey told Conan O'Brien Tuesday.

"And it was Bristol's birthday, too," Fey said.

"I was like yeah, that's exactly what 17-year-old Bristol Palin wants to do at Saturday Night Live... babysit the toddler of the lady that gooks on her mom."

Tina Fey's impressions of the Republican V.P. candidate have been a highlight of the campaign season. Check then out in our library of Sarah Palin videos (real and Tina's)!

As we reported last week, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the lone conservative voice on ABC's The View, campaigned in the crucial state of Florida over the weekend for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate.

Free of the shackles of Joy Behar and company, Hasselbeck boasted that for a change, she finally got to talk for five minutes without being interrupted.

Here's Elisabeth's introduction of the V.P. nominee in Tampa. In addition to extolling the All-American values of the GOP ticket, Hasselbeck had some harsh words for Barack Obama - especially over the Sarah Palin wardrobe criticism ...

Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin sure chose some pro-America names for her five kids: Track Palin, Trig Palin, Bristol Palin, Willow Palin and Piper Palin. Yes, we're serious about the first two.

Ever wonder what would your name be if Sarah Palin was your mom? Would you be doomed to years of middle school mockery by being named Flower, Twig or Truck?

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
