Tina Fey as Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live

Tina Fey as Sarah Palin: Last Frontier of Funny or Fizzled Out?

In case your bedtime is earlier than SNL or you were out doing something more fun last night, here's the Tina Fey as Sarah Palin sketch. She certainly looks the part and it was fun to see her back on the show. . . but was her appearance worth the hype?

What do you think of the accent? I did get a kick of the way she delivered the line about the Bush Doctrine, but all in all, how did she do? Is she the Will Ferrell as George Bush of Sarah Palin? Is Piper going to think that's her mommy?

The City Girl - There's part of the avatar that got cut off. It was a very snarky comment about Obama and WHY people that were for Hillary are now for Palin and it had NOTHING to do with genetics. LMAO I just wish it had shown up too. :(

i think that she was really funny - and a dead on selection for someone to play palin. i think that the Gov. should be really pleased with how she was portrayed. who better than Fey to jump into the role. she was respectful yet really kind of humorous all at the same time (and i'm not even an SNL fan)

Wait Mykie7--you voted for Hilary (your avatar) and you love Palin? Even though they stand for completely diametrically opposed political ideology? I don't get that AT all.

I LOVED IT! When Hillary said "Boner Shrinker" I spit milk out my nose! LMAO I too love Palin, but satyrization of political candidates is HILARIOUS. I like SNL because they don't pick sides. They flay the candidates equally no matter what side they're on. LMAO

I love it!!! I'm a fervent supporter of Sarah Palin and I think she's an inspiration, and I also think she's a good sport - I bet she was at home laughing along with the rest of us.

It was hysterical. Tina Fey totally nailed it. She was a riot, and Poehler was great too, even though she doesn't look as much like Clinton as Fey looks like Palin.

I thought most of it was predictable, but the "boner shrinker" part made me laugh.

Loved the opening sketch. I thought Tina was perfect for the part and her accent was really good. As for the rest of the show, it kinda fell flat. I hate when they have sports figures on the show.

Amy Poehler as Hilary Clinton Make the skit work, not Fey. Fey's part is easy since she is a perfect look a like for the character she plays, who I add is easy to act like. Laugh aloud skit for sure, but Give credit where it is due. Poehler deserves to be rewarded for doing the most difficult part in that skit.

So great, but also so scary. It just shows how ridiculous a VP choice she is , b/c none of the statements she said were really big exaggerations. I'd be terrified is she became pres.

I somehow managed to escape the hope; and had only hoped that Fey would come on to do Palin. It was brilliant. She's a dead ringer. She got the hand gestures down and everything. Poehler's HRC has always been different. Not so much looking/acting like her, but capturing her essence and making the comedy out of Hilary's predicament. To me it jsut goes to show what a eff'ing farce the real Palin actually is. Just playing her dead ringer is funny.

I thought the skit was hilarious and Tina Fey had the look and mannerisms down perfectly and Amy Poehler's dialogue alone was so funny it didn't really matter if she was Hillary's twin. I could have watched it for 15 minutes...too bad it was so short.

I don't even watch SNL anymore, but when I first saw Sarah Palin I thought of Tina Fey right away. I'm so glad she got to parody her, and she did a great job!
