Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live SNL

The Real Sarah Palin on SNL! Hysterical or Predictable?

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!

It wasn't funny, and I thought it was super sketch when Amy said, "When I say Obama, you say Ayers! Obama!" and Sarah shouted "Ayers!"

I thought it was pretty freaking awesome. A rather awkward and see-through attempt for Palin to portray herself as likable, and probably too late, but freaking awesome nonetheless!!!!

I really didn't like her presence on the show. Just was not funny to me and didn't seem real.

I think Tina Fey can be absolutely hilarious but this kinda let me down. I gotta say though, I just don't think SNL's that funny anymore.

I thought it was so predictable that she would go on there. I thought the opening was cute but only because of Tina. Marky Mark was better by far.

Palin didn't do anything exciting but watching Amy rap and dance around was hysterical and its downright creepy how much Tina fey and palin look alike.

Even Fox news said that it was rumored Palin was supposed to do the rap, but she backed out of it.

I thought it was OK--not that funny, but not a total disaster. Marky Mark was better. Also, is it just me, or did he look kinda wee next to Samberg?

are politicians ever REALLY funny when they go on there? not as far as I am concerned, I like that they show they can make fun of themselves and be good sports. AMy got the Rap, because thats what they wrote in the first place, Palin was never supposed to do it. duh people.

It wasn't hysterical imo. I think Amy got the rap, because Palin couldn't pull it off.I don't see alot difference in not doing it because its over the line, and sitting there bopping to it.I was more excited about Marky Mark! :love:

She's probably a lot like me, you look at the source of the insult. Alec was nicer to Sarah than he was to his daughter. So it's not an insult really but more a foregone conclusion.

I think Alec Baldwin sounded so fake that I would not have been insulted either if it was me he called "that horrible woman"...in fact, he seemed more uncomfortable saying it than Palin was hearing it! The only part I enjoyed was Tina Fey's great talent at impersonating Palin, but the humor overall is pretty lame. I'd take a dose of proper British humor over SNL any time!
