Sarah Palin on SNL! October 19, 2008

So Sarah Palin finally appeared on Saturday Night Live last night, and it was pretty hilarious.

The following is taken from People.com, word for word, because I’m far too lazy to write about it all:

Watching backstage as Fey did another spot-on impersonation – this time holding a press conference – Palin told Lorne Michaels, executive producer of SNL, “I just didn’t think it was a realistic depiction of the way my press conferences would have gone.”

Mark Walhberg joined them, looking for Andy Samberg to “bust his head open” after a sketch aired last week, in which Samberg played Walhberg talking to animals.

“He didn’t like the impression we did of him on the show,” Lorne explained to Gov. Palin.

“Tell me about it,” Palin answered back with a smile.

Enter 30 Rock star (and frequent SNL host) Alec Baldwin, who addressed Palin as “Tina.”

“You can’t let Tina go out there with that woman,” Baldwin told Lorne. “She goes against everything we stand for . . . They call her, they call her – what’s that name they call her?”

“That’d be Caribou Barbie,” Palin answered.

Once Lorne introduced the candidate to Baldwin, he told her, “You are way hotter in person.”

Her reply: “Why thank you . . . and I must say, you’re brother Stephen is my favorite Baldwin brother.”

Baldwin then walked over to the podium where Fey was continuing her impersonation – “the only poll I care about is the North Pole” – and informed her that the real governor was there. Dressed identically, the two women crossed paths but did not speak as Palin replaced her doppelganger at the podium.

That’s when Palin uttered those famous words, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”

Later in the show, Palin bobbed her head  (and even raised the roof!) to the music while Weekend Update host Amy Poehler performed a rap about the governor’s vice presidential campaign.
