Sarah Palin on 'SNL': Are your hands up?

Popular TV personality Sarah Palin pageant-walked onto last night’s Saturday Night Live to watch Tina Fey impersonate her during a press conference and (I can’t believe I’m about to type this) "raise the roof" during a "Weekend Update" rap that blatantly made fun of her. Watch the opener, below.

Palin and Fey really were the media queens this weekend — to be clear, that’s "the liberal elite media as well as the liberal regular media." You betcha! Watch more of this weekend’s Palin-related funnies — from Letterman, Bill Maher, and more — over at Sound Bites.

    Still hate her.

    Tina Fey is gold. Pure gold. And bravo to SNL for making the most out of Palin, whose handlers tried to do everything humanly possible to take all comedy and humor out of the skits she appeared in.

  • Ted K

    This was kinda boring. And I’d rather see Palin answer questions on the issues, instead of advancing her career as a celebrity.

  • Fred

    This was, very literally, a joke. I admit that I laughed, but that’s beside the point. Her whole appearance was a slap in the face of the voters. Politics and entertainment are two different things and shouldn’t mix. Keep to the issues! Of course the problem is that her insane policies doesn’t get her votes…

    It was disappointing, bland, not funny. Certainly not the home-runs Tina Fey hit in her other at-bats.

  • dbldn11

    She wasn’t funny, they had to throw everything but the kitchen sink in there just to try and make it passable. Man I cant wait for November 5th so we can send this bimbo back to the Great White North and NEVER have to see her again.

    I didn’t think Sarah Palin was that funny on it. It was mainly Tina Fey’s impression that got all the jokes as well as all the special guests that were there. Only really funny part was seeing her dance to the rap Amy Poehler did

  • AAR

    Palin basically sat there and the SNL cast danced around her. Palin herself did nothing and was not funny at all. Although kudos to SNL for making fun of Palin RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER. I’m not sure she even noticed. The rap was great, but I kept thinking Amy was going to put herself into labor!

  • Trazey

    I SO tuned in to laugh at Caribou Barbie but then she was great LOL I thought she did OK – I was SHOCKED to see Alec Baldwin participate like that, they must have paid him a fortune to stand next to the devil incarnate in his mind LOL hilarious. And Amy Poehler stole the show, that rap was hysterical hahahah

    Sarah Palin was NOT FUNNY last night. Everyone in the mainstream media is kissing her butt, except Pophangover’s review. I recommend stopping by to read it, it had me rolling. Here’s the URL :

    Well, this had to happen eventually. Palin seemed really nervous, but to the cast’s credit, they tried to make her comfortable while they were ripping her apart. Also, the “raise the roof” thing WAS very funny.

  • Joe T.

    I give kudos to Palin for doing something most politicians would never consider in their wildest dreams! It’s a little hard to digest, but I think it was bold for her to confront the guys who blow jokes at her every weekend by actually coming on their show! She’s good, and whether you like it or not, she’s got winning personality.

    DNC the most racist party ever.[ get the facts] Murtha is right, white democrats cannot vote for a black. it is against the party’s foundation.1866 civil rights was passed.DNC passed jim crow laws.

      One of the best SNLs ever. Betty White played Sue Ann Nivens, my fatirove character on tv ever. She was great on SNL. She has the Midas touch. Every role she plays, every show she is on, it turns to gold. Betty White is the greatest.

  • J

    Palin was lame lame LAME. I agree that the rest of the cast did more than their share to try and make the skits work. Poehler’s rap was pretty damn funny.
    But I suppose we must give credit to Palin for sitting there and taking it. I don’t think most of us could.
    I do wonder how uncomfortable Alec Baldwin was.

  • pai

    Didn’t get to Weekend Update because the second skit was so d*&^ awful!
