SNL to Premiere With Politics But Not Obama

Tonight's season premiere of Saturday Night Live may have a few surprise political guests to join human-fish-turned-host Michael Phelps. Barack Obama had been going over sketches for his probable cameo, but due to Hurricane Ike he's canceled his appearance on SNL. Guess we won't be able to tell once and for all whether Barack Obama is a hoot, or truly un-funny.

Also set to make a guest appearance is Sarah Palin look-alike Tina Fey. She just needs to work it out with her 30 Rock shooting schedule. Since she already has the glasses, I hope she can make it happen! Are you staying up late to check out SNL?

This was the funniest skit ever!

Awesome skit. It was only a week or so ago I was telling him of Tina Fey's uncanny resemblance to the Alaskan governor. And, sure enough, SNL goes and reels her in again for the guest role. Hahaha.

The SNL skit was amazing.. and way too true to the point of almost not being funny. But Tina has Caribou Barbie down pat.

Fey would make a better vice president! That would scare me less. Hillary was a perfect candidate for both president and vp.. but the us is still probably too racist to vote for an African American let alone an African American and a woman.. that might be too much change. And listening to some of those people they interviewed who think he is a Muslim born in Haiti who hates America :OY: Yikes.. is it bad to have a little tiny part of you happy that they are old and will die soon and their antiquated superstitions with them?

:ROTFL: The skit was quite funny, so glad I got to see it in Finland, thanks for posting it! :) (and yeah, Tina has her accent down...frighteningly well. I wonder..could we just switch 'em out? :ponder: Maybe nobody would notice...course, Fey is probably better on foreign policy.)

Adrenalynn75, All I can say is DO NOT miss Tina and Amy at the beginning, stay tuned for Michael Phelps and his retainer, and leave a little place in your heart and stomach for his special diet. Nite, Ladies. It's time for me to take a cold shower! And hide my beans. ;)

It's a great fit!I don't really think it's ironic that people call Obama a celebrity and Palin looks like one. That makes no sense.

everyone needs to read this article, but be warned, it's scary! It's about Palin firing people of her small town once she became mayor, for personal reasons. It's from the first page of New York Times...http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/14/us/politics/14palin.html?_r=1&hp=&adxnnl=1&adxnnlx=1221343324-tGxa66AkDRYq1tsNYpjoIw&pagewanted=all&oref=slogin
