Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey appears as Alaska Governor and Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin at another faux press conference ... while the real Sarah Palin appears back stage, critiquing the skit with the show's producer, Lorne Michaels.

Things get awkward when Alec Baldwin - believing Palin to be his 30 Rock co-star Fey - tries to persuade Lorne not to have Tina portray "that woman" anymore. In the midst of it all, Mark Wahlberg shows up looking for Andy Samberg!

For a month, the laugh has been on Sarah Palin. The way certain polls look, after a few more weeks, such attention may never be focused on her again.

But if nothing else, she'll get her chance to turn the tables on Saturday Night Live - whose impressions of her have been comedic gold - this weekend.

The Alaska Governor and Republican V.P. candidate – and Tina Fey alter ego – will appear on Saturday Night Live with guest host Josh Brolin.

It is still unclear what Palin will do on the comedy show: Will she team up with Brolin’s spot-on impersonation of George W. Bush, as showcased in the actor's new film, W., or will she try to skewer Fey somehow, which has also been rumored?

If she does take on Tina, it wouldn't be the first time. Palin supposedly once went as Fey for Halloween. Chimed in husband Todd Palin in an interview with his wife: “She’s been impersonating Tina Fey longer than Tina Fey’s been doing Sarah Palin."

Think Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wants to get back at Tina Fey for her three (and counting, hopefully) Saturday Night Live impersonations? You betcha!

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Republican Vice Presidential hopeful is weighing the possibility of appearing on Saturday Night Live to skewer Fey, who's played her on three straight episodes, including last Saturday in a faux V.P. debate.

Specifically, a spoof of Fey's American Express commercials is in the works, as a segment airing during the show's "Weekend Update" news broadcast.

You Betcha

Tina Fey's impressions of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live are instant classics.

Some John McCain campaign advisers want Sarah Palin to leave well enough alone, to keep joking about it on the campaign trail and let that be that.

Others want her to respond in kind. We just hope the hockey mom doesn't listen to the mainstream media and puts the interests of Joe Six Pack first.

John McCain appeared in two Saturday Night Live segments last spring, as did several other prominent GOP candidates. Democratic Sen. Barack Obama, McCain's rival for the presidency, played himself in a Halloween skit last fall.

Tina Fey is the funniest woman alive.

Back to her former show for the third straight week as GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, she opened Saturday Night Live with a debate against Jason Sudeikis, who portrayed Democratic nominee Joe Biden (and wasn't bad himself).

Sarah Palin Style

Queen Latifah also guest starred as moderator Gwen Ifill.

The faux V.P. debate - the latest Sarah Palin sketch in what is becoming SNL's best political parody ever - features more funny lines from Tina Fey than we can count.

We highly recommend watching the 10-minute exchange below:

"I believe marriage is a sacred institution between two unwilling teenagers."

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.

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.

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

One stars on 30 Rock. The other was just chosen as a possible Vice President of the United States. We can only hope there's an episode of the NBC comedy this fall in which Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) is mistaken for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

After Britney Spears' not entirely terrible, image-boosting appearance helped CBS' How I Met Your Mother earn its highest ratings of all time Monday, another hit sitcom reportedly has its sights set on a guest role for the pop singer.

Executive producer, creator and star Tina Fey says she wouldn't mind if Britney Spears popped up on her hilarious, hit NBC series 30 Rock.

"We would love to work with Britney Spears," Fey said. "I've worked with her twice on Saturday Night Live and she was very professional and nice."

Britney Spears would be on 30 Rock if Tina Fey had her way. Of course, that would require them not to mock Spears (a la South Park) ... which may be a tall order.

Fey also has her eyes set on another A-lister: Oprah.

"I want Oprah to play my best friend," Fey said. "I want to spend time with Oprah Winfrey, and I don't know what I need to do to make it happen."

30 Rock returns April 10 with new episodes following the writers' strike. Getting back to work wasn't easy, Tina Fey admitted.

"The strike was a bit like the maternity leave that I didn't have, except for my duties on the union line," said Fey, who has a daughter Alice, 2. "Now my daughter is old enough to say, ‘You don't go to work, you stay inside.' That breaks my heart."

Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin partied together at the Gotham Magazine Gala in New York City last week, and grace that publications cover this month.

Here are some excerpts from the 30 Rock stars' interview ...

Tina Fey: I think Alec being on the show bought 30 Rock a lot of time. He's such a brilliant actor and he's not someone you get to see for free on TV. He absolutely bought us the whole first year. But I think that people who see the show really do like it; it's just a question of getting people to try it out. We have the label of a "low-rated" or "poorly rated" show, but it's weird, because on the same day I'll see us referred to as "the low-rated 30 Rock" I'll read "the hit show Gossip Girl." We rate higher than Gossip Girl, but there's a different expectation on NBC than the CW.

Gotham: Have you seen Gossip Girl?

Tina Fey: No, but the children on it are very beautiful.

Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin team up for the brilliance that is 30 Rock.

Gotham: What are your resolutions for 2008?

Tina Fey: An attempt at a less vulgar life. Less cursing, less bile. I sort of got into trouble last year I went on Howard Stern and ran my mouth a little bit about Paris Hilton [Fey said Hilton is a "piece of $h!t" and "looks like a tranny" among other things.] Not only was that not the right way for a 37-year-old woman to behave, but I went to my gynecologist for my yearly checkup shortly thereafter and she was like, "I read that thing [you said about Paris Hilton] in the paper. That was very hostile. Are you all right?" So, starting there: being less vulgar and hostile.
