Tina Fey for President!

I had heard a few days ago that Tina Fey was in negotiations with "Saturday Night Live" to make occasional appearances on the show as Sarah Palin. At the time, I thought that was brilliant. After watching last night's season opener, I think it's nothing less that suuuuupergenius! Amy Poehler is always great as Hillary, but Tina Fey's Palin is DEAD ON. She's got the mannerisms and accent perfect. What do you think?

Oh, and I agree with "Hillary." The media? Grow a pair!!

Okay.. so funny story.. one of the first times that I saw Sarah Palin on the stage with Senator McCain, she was at an oblique angle and for just a second I thought "Oh, I didn't realize that Tina Fey was a republican!".. LMAO.. yeah, I think she's got it down.   Estela

Thank you for posting this link! I forgot to watch SNL last night. Tina Fey has totally channeled Palin, especially the irritating cadences of her voice. Her performance as Palin is supercalifragilisticexpialadocious!--Sheria

She looks just like her!!!  It will be perfect!  Hope they get someone cute to play her husband and son!

The first time I saw Sara Palin I mentioned to my wife she looked like her. I went  so bold to say that I bet she would play her on SNL soon. I now regret not watching some of it Saturday night. We opted to watch an older Chuck Norris movie, for it is too funny to watch his facials. It is even funnier to hear his lines in a majority of his films. We love him, but he couldn't win an oscar. Have you noticed he really can't walk in films, but later he played Walker?

Thanks

Wes

i saw Palin on Charlie Gibson and i had to laugh at the absurdity that she claims to be a Washington outsider. Give me a damn break. These politicians will lie their asses off to get that vote. I can't stand Palin's voice. Don't like her either. Fey did a great job in this video. XO

I saw excerpts of Fey and it was good, she did an excellent impersonation of her.

I kept wondering why, each time I saw Palin, I'd think of contact lenses. I've run an eye practice in the past, hmmm.  Doubt she was a patient in NJ. Then I realized she reminded me of those old Linda Carter print ads. ~Mary

I saw this for the first time this morning and gasped when I saw "Palin".  I couldn't be sure at first if it was Tina Fey or the real Palin.  It was a brilliant skit, and I wonder if Fay wrote any of it.  It was LOL funny.  I was cackling through the whole thing, and both of them were dead on!  Funniest thing I've seen in ages.
