This is it! After inspiring the most talked-about impersonation since Will Ferrell's Bush, the Real Sarah Palin was on SNL last night, opening the show and showing up to Weekend Update (can I say she looked very comfortable behind that news desk?) She seemed the picture of a good sport and kind of in her element. Check out what happens when Alec Baldwin confuses Palin for Fey-lin. . . .
Alec Baldwin? Not so smooth at reading the cue cards, but he grabbed Palin's arm like they were old pals — and the moment where Palin and Fey-lin pass each other? I giggled. Plus! A Baldwin joke. What did you think? Did you stay up for SNL?
Here's the other sketch Sarah Palin was in, the Update rap. It does make me wish upon wishes that Palin had actually done the rap herself. Drill, baby Drilla!
