The question one must ask is whether or not this is a case of life imitating art.

Palin is a walking cartoon.

The sad thing is that much of Tina Fey's dialogue during the SNL skit consisted simply of repeating what Palin actually said during her CBS interview.

No, the sad thing is there is just as much material to be done with Obama but the writers and actors will not cross that line that made SNL what it was in 1975.
It is a shell of it's former self that only goes for the safe bet lest they bring the wrath of the agenda driven producers.

The whole diatribe about the bailout was pretty much verbatim.

She was obviously speaking in tongues because ONLY GOD KNEW WHAT THE HECK SHE WAS SAYING.

I am sure we all remember kids in school that answered questions like this.

I think they must have all moved to Alaska, or the south.

I know, and everyone with a brain knows that NBC is 150% behind the Obama / Biden election and no even handed, balanced representation of both candidates is possible thus I've stopped watching this program altogether. GE and NBC are prime examples of the degradation that major media has fallen to. When you speak of the "Fairness Doctrine" which might be leveraged against talk radio should the Left prevail in November, I want to watch closely and see how it affects NBC and their totally one sided water carrying for the Democrats.

The hallmark of the "new left" seems to be personal hatreds and vindictiveness of anything and anyone with whom they disagree. It is all personal now. No one wants to debate ideas, they want to attempt to destroy the persons themselves by going after their spouses, their kids, their religion, where they are from, their hobbies and sports, etc. This is a sign of a small, nasty mind and a limited vocabulary and limited knowledge of exactly what the issues really are. When you don't understand the issues at all you are only left with attacking the person.

Tina Fey is brilliant!!!

Everyone gets skewered on SNL--right, left, and center.

It makes me laugh when people only defend the first ammendment only when they agree with what someone is saying...

The Liberal Orlando Sentinel, The Liberal Drive by Media (NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC) of course they would NEVER do anything to hurt their precious Obama and his lack of ideas or solutions to the problems facing this nation. "He is a rock-star, so charismatic." BFD the guy has no experience,no substance and no business being the leader of this great nation. Wake up Liberals before you all destroy the United States of America!!!

You can't make fun of obama. It would be racist.Last season on SNL, there was a big controversy because a white man, played obama.But it's Ok to go after a white woman.

Why not do a skit on Obama that showcases how when he talks he has this whistle in his voice.
You are right about skits on either side of the political aisle but "a whistle" compared to lack of intelligence?

The important point is that these skits make fun of her lack of intelligence, lack of knowledge in domestic and foreign affairs, lack of knowledge in the economy stupid, and these Palin characteristics have been painfully shown by the candidate herself.

And though these skits are very funny and very serious too when it goes beyond a whistle in a voice.

Yep, it was called trying to BS your way through, and it didn't work then, it shouldn't work now.

The whole Palin debacle proves that you can put lipstick on a Pymallion, but, in the end, she's still a Pygmallion.

On another note, lets not forget that for decades now we have had so called Harvard and Yale educated people in Washington who are EXPERTS on economics and foreign affairs. They are heads and shoulders ABOVE the "stupid" Palin. Let me see, we are BANKRUPT, have been in one war after another for the past 60 years and America is on the verge of becoming a BROKE Third World nation. Maybe we should give someone who is "STUPID" a go at it. They couldn't do any worse. The current leaders in the White House and Congress are "STUPID" based on the state of America. While you "STUPID" people are taking either a Democrat or Republican side in this non-stop babble fest, our nation sinks to new lows. It's like vultures fighting over road kill. You are all "STUPID" morons.
You never hear that Palin is governor of the only state with so much revenue, coming in from oil, that every citizen is given money every year.Any one who knows how to balance a checkbook and keep a savings account, could do better, than the geniuses in washington.

Whining about the "Liberal Media" did wonders for Katherine Harris' equally flawed candidacy, hopefully it'll have the same effect on Palin's equally flawed candidacy.

I'm sorry. Did I miss how you specifically addressed my comment that a lot of the skit was a direct quote from Palin?

When the person being "attacked" doesn't understand the issues, and can't give a coherent example of how to handle the issues, is it really an attack? To put it as bluntly as possible, Sarah Palin is uninformed, unprepared and mentallu unqualified to even run for VP, let alone be VP.

The Palin sketch was funny, the debate sketch could have been written better.

Funny the first time, like SNL it's a little played.

How about the following:

Picture if you will Joe Biden as an AMISH farmer actually plowing the corn rows he calls hair...now that's funny!
