Palin Finds Tina Fey's 'Saturday Night Live' Impression of Her 'Quite Funny'


NEW YORK — Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin was amused by Tina Fey's impression of her on this weekend's "Saturday Night Live," especially as she once dressed up as Fey for Halloween.

"She thought it was quite funny, particularly because she once dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween," her spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said, according to CBS News. Fey bears a much-remarked-upon resemblance to Palin, and they wear similar glasses.

In the skit, Fey appeared with Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton and the two talked about sexism in the media and their own ideas about politics. "I don't agree with the Bush doctrine," Poehler said at one point.

"I don't know what that is," Fey responded, poking fun at the recent Charlie Gibson interview in which some said Palin appeared to be unfamiliar with the Bush doctrine on terrorism.

In preliminary numbers measuring major U.S. cities, "SNL's" 34th-season premiere logged a 7.4 rating and 18 percent share of audience — the largest viewership for a "SNL" season debut since 2001, and up 64 percent from last year's opener, according to Nielsen Media Research.

So will Fey, who stars in NBC's weekly prime-time comedy "30 Rock," return to play Palin again?

"We are taking it day-by-day," said "SNL" spokesman Marc Liepis on Monday.

Could she be back as soon as this Saturday's show?

"We don't even have a script written yet," Liepis replied.

Under any circumstances, it was unlikely Fey would make an encore appearance on this week's "SNL," inasmuch as the New York-based show will air the night before Sunday's Emmy broadcast, live from Los Angeles. With "30 Rock" having snagged several nominations, including Fey as best comic actress, she is expected to be on hand for those festivities.

For the long term, "SNL" executive producer Lorne Michaels reportedly has an as-yet-undisclosed "Plan B" and "Plan C" for a Palin impersonator, in lieu of Fey.

In the meantime, as Liepis noted, "She has a day job."

I watched that exchange and thought it was a hoot. They tagged both hillary and palin. Every politician needs to be knocked off their high horses a little.

Although, most should be knocked off their horses with a rock, tarred and feathered and ran out of town on a rail.

Chevy Chase said Monday he wants Tina Fey to go "even harder" on Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin than she did in her "Saturday Night Live" skit this past weekend ... and that he wants Fey to "decimate" her.

"I thought it was extraordinary how well she played her and much she looked like her. I'd just like her — personally I felt we didn't need the Hillary stuff — I'd like her to go even harder," the former "SNL" star told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show.

"I want her to decimate this woman. This woman is, I can't believe there hasn't been more about it. ... It's just unbelievable to me this woman is actually running for vice president," he continued.

I have had the misfortune to see parts of a number of Chase movies, and over all these years he has yet to give me even the glimmer of a chuckle. No matter the subject, he comes across as arrogant and humorless (not good for a supposed comedian :roll: )

Yes - even at his height (of his career), I never found him funny. Dan Akroyd was funny in many movies - Chase wasn't...
