You gotta hand it to Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

On The View today, the resident conservative hot mess at least gave it the ol' college try, attempting to explain why Sarah Palin is qualified to be U.S. President.

Sarah Palin in NYC

Unfortunately, that's more than an ambitious task, it's impossible, as the clip below shows. Too bad she couldn't pull a Tina Fey and ask for a lifeline at the end.

Last week's Saturday Night Live opening sketch - which featured Tina Fey as Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Amy Poehler as former First Lady Hillary Clinton - was such a hit that Fey reprised her hilarious impersonation last night.

It doesn't hurt that Palin provides so much material. As Tina herself said after last week, she hopes to never portray this character ever again after November. But we're grateful for the funny cameos on her former show in the meantime.

Sarah Palin Style

This time, CBS News' Katie Couric (Poehler) sits down with the Republican V.P. candidate. You would not believe some of the things Sarah Palin had to say about New Yorkers, her visit to the U.N., her plans for foreign affairs and more. Check it out ...

Forget the supposed affair with Todd Palin look-alike Brad Hanson. Forget David Letterman's hilarious, never-ending rants on last night's Late Show.

The entertaining race for most absurd story of the week surroundng the John McCain-Sarah Palin presidential ticket was just won. By a landslide.

Below, in this video unearthed from way back in 2005, a certain future Alaska Governor and Republican V.P. contender accepts the blessing of Pastor Thomas Muthee, who asks Jesus to fund her political campaigns, and protect her from witchcraft. Really.

Looks like Sarah Palin and Barack Obama have more in common than youth and enthusiasm. Let's hear it for crazy pastors and YouTube church videos!

Yesterday, Republican presidential candidate John McCain was supposed to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman, but he bailed at the last second to head to Washington and deal with the country's mounting economic crisis.

Far from pleased by this charade, Letterman went off on some serious rants - even by his standards - against McCain and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. No Brad Hanson jokes were made, but just about everything else was fair game:

John McCain Who?!

Is Brad Hanson the male Rielle Hunter?

It's too early to tell, but the National Enquirer was right the last time - and now they're finally publishing the name of the man they believe had an intimate affair with Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

At long last revealing their source (Palin “family insider” Jim Burdett) and claiming he went through a “vigorous polygraph test,” the celeb news tabloid is alleging that Palin had an extramarital affair around 1996 with Brad Hanson.

"I’ve known about Brad having had an affair for a long time, but it wasn’t until recently that I learned his affair was with Sarah Palin," Burdett said, noting that Brad Hanson previously owned a snowmobile dealership with Sarah's husband, Todd Palin.

"Sarah Palin was elected mayor of Wasilla, Brad became a city council member in the nearby town of Palmer, and they started an affair. Todd found out about the affair and was so mad he broke up their partnership at the snowmobile dealership."

This is a little disappointing. Not that he got caught - that he looks like a normal kid. We were expecting more along the lines of The Simpsons' Comic Book Guy.

Instead, University of Tennessee student David Kernell, 20, is the apparently the genius who "hacked" (i.e. guessed the password and/or the answers to the security questions) Sarah Palin's Yahoo! email account. See photo below.

The FBI stormed his apartment last week, in the process breaking up a party Kernell was having. Frickin' cops. Don't you hate when that happens in college?

Oh, and get this - the dude's father is actually a Democratic Tennessee State Representative named Mike Kernell. This should help his re-election efforts.

In any case, David Kernell has already retained legal representation and, at least as of this posting, he has not been indicted by a grand jury in Chattanooga.

We recommend the Alaska Governor pick tougher questions next time. Something like... Q: Who am I going to strangle with my bare hands? A: Levi Johnston.

No, not personally - but Lynne Spears is miffed that people vilified pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears, then praised the knocked up Bristol Palin.

This wasn't just the hypocritical reaction of idiots like Bill O'Reilly, either. Most of the general public had a "totally different reaction" to the teen pregnancies of Jamie Lynn and Bristol, Lynne said in an interview with Newsweek.

Ballas and Palin

"It's as if [Sarah Palin] became celebrated," Lynne said.

"I mean, the mother was celebrated for this... Every woman in the world applauded her strength and convictions and poor Jamie Lynn, you saw how she was crucified - everybody did, firsthand. I just feel like it's been a very hypocritical situation."

We'd have to agree.

In December, Jamie Lynn Spears, then 16, announced her pregnancy. She got engaged to Casey Aldridge and gave birth to daughter Maddie Briann in June at age 17.

In August, Sarah Palin, the Alaska Governor and Republican V.P. candidate, revealed that her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol Palin, is expecting and engaged to Levi Johnston.

"Do I promote teen sex? Of course not," Lynne said. "Do I promote teen pregnancy? Of course not. But when it happens, you deal with it and you do the best you can do."

Just kidding about the sexism part. But you believed it, right?

Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's personal email was hacked recently the John McCain campaign is seriously pissed.

Sarah Palin Looks On

Palin’s Yahoo! Mail was plundered late Tuesday night. Her personal emails, addresses, family photos and phone numbers were soon published on the Internets.

Taking a break from picking fights over more important issues such as Lindsay Lohan, John McCain's campaign chief fired off the following threat reply:

“This incident represents a shocking invasion of the governor’s privacy and a violation of law. The matter has been turned over to the appropriate authorities. We hope that anyone in possession of these e-mails will destroy them.”

Ooh. That'll work. The hacker community always heeds to "authority.”

Sarah Palin might want to think up a new password.

Aside from the obvious humor in this - what was her password, Trig? - Sarah Palin's use of a Yahoo! account for state business does raise issues.

The Anchorage Daily News even wrote two days ago:

"Even before the McCain campaign plucked Palin from Alaska, a controversy was brewing over e-mails in the governor’s office. Was the administration trying to get around the public records law through broad exemptions or private e-mail accounts?"

One other side note: Sarah's husband, snowmobile racer Todd Palin, uses the screen name FeK9Wnr – short for Iron Dog Winner. Get it?

It's safe to assume Lindsay Lohan and Pink were big fans of Tina Fey's Sarah Palin impression. Who wouldn't be?

But count these two celebrities as the latest stars to come out against the Republican nominee for Vice President. Lohan, sounding more grounded by the day, said about Palin:

No Effing Way

"I feel it's necessary for me to clarify that I am not against Sarah Palin as a mother or woman.... I would have liked to have remained impartial, however I am afraid that the 'lipstick on a pig' comments will overshadow the issues and the fact that I believe Barack Obama is the best choice, in this election, for president..."

Lohan, who is in a same-sex relationship with Samantha Ronson, went on to question Palin's views on homosexuality:

"Is it a sin to be gay? Should it be a sin to be straight? Or to use birth control? Or to have sex before marriage? Or even to have a child out of wedlock? Is our country so divided that the Republicans best hope is a narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe?"

Pink, meanwhile, was more biting and direct in her Sarah Palin commentary:

"She is not the woman that's going to come behind Hillary Clinton and do anything that Hillary Clinton would've been capable of … I can't imagine overturning Roe vs. Wade. She's not of this time. The woman terrifies me."

Do celebrities' voices carry more weight than the average citizen? Of course not. But it's nice to hear that this election has inspired so many to take a look at the issues involved.

We'd love to hear from readers on this topic. Who are you supporting and why?

Given that Tina Fey and Sarah Palin are already noted look-alikes, it was only a matter of time until the Saturday Night Live alumna parodied the Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate on the late night comedy show.

Not only is Fey a dead-ringer for Sarah Palin, but her accent was downright hilarious in last night's "non-partisan" sketch skewering the 2008 presidential election.

Sarah Palin, Newsweek

Amy Poehler, while bearing no physical resemblance to Hillary Clinton, is nonetheless funny as the former First Lady in this faux, joint press conference ...

"I believe global warming is just God hugging us a little closer!"
