Tina Fey as Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live

In case you’ve missed it, Tina Fey has been appearing each week on Saturday Night Live as Sarah Palin. The first installment imagined a press conference with Hilary Clinton, the second parodied her funny-to-start-with interview with Katie Couric (including direct quotes better than the SNL writing staff could have created), and this week the VP debates were naturally the topic.

Word is there will be a new Fey-as-Palin sketch to kick off the show each week until the election. This can only get funnier.

Doppelgangers danced and worlds collided on Saturday eve October 19th, as Sarah Palin took Alec Baldwin’s arm, shared the same stage with Tina Fey, and stood her ground in front of a lot of parody of herself on Saturday Night Live.

In a final appearance on Saturday Night Live prior to the election, Tina Fey stood next to the real John McCain to hock mock QVC campaign-ware on SNL.


Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
