Sarah Palin Yuks It Up On Saturday Night Live

The real Governor Sarah Palin appeared on NBC's Saturday Night Live opposite comedic foil Tina Fey, fellow 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin and SNL creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels.

In the opening skit Tina Fey impersonates the Governor while holding a faux news conference. Lorne Michaels stands backstage with the real Sarah Palin while Tina Fey is lampooning the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee. The scene is set backstage for Governor Palin's walk-on as Alec Baldwin joins Palin and Michaels and mistakes Palin for Tina Fey.

Alec Baldwin, known for his extremely liberal views says to Michaels, You can't let Tina go out there with that woman. She goes against everything we stand for, this is the most important election of our lifetime. Michaels points out to Baldwin that he is standing next to the real Sarah Palin. After a momentarily awkward pause Baldwin says, Forgive me, but I feel I must say this, you're way hotter in person. I can't believe they let her [referring to Fey], you know, play you. Without missing a beat, Palin responded, You know, your brother, Stephen (a McCain-Palin supporter) is my favorite Baldwin.

Palin later appears for the Weekend Update segment with Amy Poehler. For an election update funnylady Poehler begins rapping All the mavericks in the house, put your hands in air! Palin pumped her hands in the air while Eskimos, a moose, and a snowsuit-clad man danced on the set.
