Palin Makes Her SNL Debut

Sarah Palin walked into the lion’s den this evening and appeared on Saturday Night Live.

Tina Fey playing Palin opened up the show depicting Palin’s first press conference. After several questions from her “press corps” Fey then told the journalists gathered that she “would like to entertain everybody with some fancy pageant walking.”

The show then switches to backstage where SNL Executive Producer, Lorne Michaels is watching Fey’s performance alongside the actual Sarah Palin. She asks Michaels why he wouldn’t let her impersonate Fey on her show, “30 Rock.” Michaels joked that no one watched it anyway.

Alec Baldwin, Fey’s co-star on “30 Rock,” walked up to the two and confused Palin for Fey and  told Michaels that Fey can’t go out on stage with Palin because, “she goes against everything we stand for.”

After Michaels introduces Baldwin to Palin, he tells her that she is “much hotter in person” and Palin responds by saying that that Alec’s younger brother, “Stephen is my favorite Baldwin brother.” Stephen Baldwin is a born again Christian and a conservative Republican.

The two walk off arm in arm together before Palin comes to the podium to shout, “Live form New York it’s Saturday Night!”

Palin also popped in on “Weekend Update”  and told Seth Meyers that she decided against the sketch they practiced. Amy Poehler took the reigns and performed a hilarious, but edgy rap combining all of Palin’s greatest hits and stereotypes: the Bridge to Nowhere, seeing Russia from her house, her running mate’s smile which is described as “creepy,”  and obviously moose hunting.

Poehler was joined by cast members playing a dancing Todd Palin and eskimos while the Alaska governor sat at the desk smiling and dancing along including a back and forth with the dancing cast where Poehler raps, “When I say Obama you say Ayers. Obama! Ayers! Obama! Ayers!” referring to Palin linking the Democratic nominee to 1960’s radical William Ayers
