Favorite Lighten-Up Moment: Katie Couric and Sarah Palin Spoof

We've been tallying up the votes of your favorite 2008 moments, and now it's time for the best Lighten Up. And gosh, you know, one moment really shored up the votes.

Nearly half of you — 47 percent — voted for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's impression of Sarah Palin's interview with a frustrated Katie Couric. Jon Stewart's defense of fake America and the roast of John McCain and Barack Obama were distant seconds. And there was one maverick out there that voted for Sarah Palin, the Disney movie trailer.

Watch the SNL spoof one more time before we retire it into '09.

I think the skit was ok. Tina doing the Palin impression was better than the other woman as Katie Couric.

I thought this was just annoying, specifically Poehler's Katie Couric impression with the incessant eye blinking.

You know when someone is quoted verbatim on a comedy show that something is just not right. In this case... SNL was right...

This wasn't even a spoof. Palin was a joke all on her own.

That was one of the funniest things I had seen on SNL in years. Well besides Andy Samberg.

The SNL writers had it easy--they just used her actual words.

I voted for the Defense of Fake America, but this was really great too.
