The VP Debate--Saturday Night Live style

Tina Fey still shows her wicked, comedic side in portraying Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in Saturday Night Live's opening skit of the vice presidential debate. Queen Latifah portrays moderator Gwen Ifill, while SNL's Jason Sudeikis shows just how tough Joe Biden is during the debate.

And yes, Tina Fey shows just what she can do with that flute.

it's no wonder that the GOP won't schedule any more unscripted air time for Palin, this would give people more time to realize that she's totally clueless... the prospect of her becoming the Commander in Chief is frightening

Dear Patrick:

Thank you for your comment. Isn't it ironic that the only time you will ever see Sarah Palin is at GOP-controlled, campaign rallies, doing stump speeches with John McCain? It appears that I see the two constantly together in their rallies--Sarah Palin has become a Toy Poodle for John McCain. You are right that she's totally clueless. The McCain campaign knows that she's totally clueless, since they refuse to bring Sarah Palin out for a press conference with the Washington press corps, knowing that the corps will eat her for breakfast, even with the softball questions. Her performance with Charles Gibson and Katie Couric was just godawful, and both even tossed some nerfball questions that Palin couldn't answer (Bush Doctrine anyone?).

I think the American people are starting to wake up and realize just how bad this McCain / Palin candidacy is for the country. I've been watching both the national, and state polls, which are showing the beginnings of a strong Obama lead, just three weeks into the election. I think a big reason for Obama's lead is that the American people are more frightened with the deteriorating U.S. economy, and have decided that it may be better off to go with a Democratic presidential candidate, who is African-American, rather than another four years of Republican control in the White House. I could be wrong, though.
