Sarah Palin Comes to Saturday Night Live!

Sarah Palin Comes to Saturday Night Live!

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!

Tina Fey as Sarah Palin: Take Two!

Tina Fey as Sarah Palin: Take Two!

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.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama Debate: SNL Style

A possibly-funny, possibly-bitter Hillary Clinton actually cited last weekend's SNL skit at the onset of this week's debate with Barack Obama in Ohio.

"In the last several debates, I seem to get the first question all the time," the New York Senator said. "I don't mind. I'll be happy to field it. I just find it curious if anybody saw Saturday Night Live ... maybe we should ask [Barack Obama] if he's comfortable and needs another pillow."
