Sarah Palin confirmed for Saturday Night Live

October 17th, 2008 // 102 Comments

It’s official: Sarah Palin is doing Saturday Night Live. The McCain campaign confirmed the Alaska Governor will make a guest appearance on this weekend’s show with host Josh Brolin. For the past few weeks, Tina Fey has been doing an uncanny impersonation of Sarah Palin which the governor was taking in stride but might not be digging so much these days a gee golly don’tcha know. People reports:

It was hard to tell whether the Palins are still laughing along with Fey. When a reporter noted that Fey plays the vice presidential candidate as bubble-headed, Sarah retorted: “That’s funny, I kind of play her bubble-headed, too, when I imitate her.”
Chimes in husband Todd Palin about his wife: “She’s been impersonating Tina Fey longer than Tina Fey’s been doing Sarah Palin.”

Oh my god, a husband and wife comedy team. Hilarious! *puts gun in mouth*

NOTE: Here’s the link for the Sarah Palin Oval Office in case you guys haven’t seen it yet. Try not to walk around saying “Mav’rick” for the rest of the day. I dare ya.

    What’s next, Presidential hopefuls going on ESPN 2 and competing in arm-wrestling contests?

    The only plus, is that Saturday Night Live is now more unfunny than the McNeil-Lehrer Report used to be. How the fuck do they get that audience to laugh, they must spray the studio with some kind of gas.

    Where the fuck is the leadership this country desperately needs.

  2. Her looks alone scream for VICTORY, folks?

    “”"Oh yeah Tina take it, take big daddys cock!……augh!…come on Sarah say it.. oh’gee….LIVE FROM NEW YORK ITS SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE!………..aauuugggghhhh I’m coming!!!….. oh’gee!”"”"”

    I hear that she tried and failed to qualify to go on “are you smarter than a 5th grader”…!!! sheesh

    I am very disappointed in SNL’s decision to allow Sarah Palin to appear on your show. Her rally’s are inciting hatred and prejudice among the crowds. She is defaming Barack Obama’s reputation and I find it despicable.

    I have been a long time fan of your show but doubt I will watch it again!

    Sarah Palin? This is woman who doesn’t know what she reads. She couldn’t answer that one simple f***ing softball of a question. We’ve just experienced 8 years with a president who doesn’t give damn about anything, so I can understand why many Republicans are excited by her – it’s more of the same.

    Is she hot? Well, if you compare her to Hillary Clinton or Ruth Bader Ginsburg, then I GUESS you could say that she’s hot.

  12. Annie

    Why does everyone hate her so much?

    I’m just curious.

    Hey, morons. Look at the facts for “a change.” Palin has more experience than the #1 on your ticket, the messiah, the Dalai Bama. She was a small business owner, she was a mayor and a governor. Ms Palin had to make major executive decisions dealing with a huge state budget and personnel in the State of Alaska. When running for the governship, she defeated a sitting Republican governor in the primary, a rare occurence for the Republicans or the Dalai Bama party. She took on and defeated the good ole boys Republican establishment and their oil industry cronies in Alaska to the benefit of the Alaskan people. The Dalai Bama has never taken on the corrupt Chicago Dalai Bama political machine or the earmarking, overspending Dalai Bama party in WDC. Your messiah simply sat in the state and national legislature with his thumb up his ass voting Present most of the time. The Dalai Bama does not/not represent change or reform. He has no experience at change or reform. No one can point to any real accomplishment that your Dalai Bama can claim. No wonder he refuses to release his college transcripts.

    At least Fox News has decent, more well-rounded coverage. Better than CNN (COMMUNIST NEWS NETWORK). You bleeding heart liberals keep on voting for your loser candidates and before too long you will realize what useless dumbasses they all are. Nancy Pelosi has been in office now for 2 years and hasn’t accomplished one thing. Hillary promised to reform health care in the US. She accomplished absolutely NOTHING in 8 years. Blah, blah, blah this list goes on forever.

    GO McCAIN/Palin ’08 for REAL CHANGE

    NOBAMA!! (Fraud)

    This could be a monumental train wreck! By the way, here is a website I found that shares all the Sarah Palin Pictures and supports Barack Obama!

  18. Georgi

    Let’s face it; when pro-Plain supporters were polled, the overwhelming majority of them could not explain the three branches of the US federal goverment, let alone how they work. Stupid is as stupid does. She’s getting the ignorant, red-neck radical votes. It’s a free country — but unfortunately, a portion of it is not a very educated one.

  19. Georgi

    Here’s a link to a story about Palin that confirms the research we did on her record. It’s downright scary:

    And she has the audacity to smear Obama? Unbelievable.

    PALIN SHOULD GO BACK TO ALASKA AND ENROLL IN SOME NIGHT CLASSES!!!

  21. Billie

    To Pete Acorn: My friend, you should do some research on Palin. The McCain campaign is selling you down the river. Here are some facts about Palin:

    · As Mayor of Wasilla, Palin hired Steven Silver – a partner in a private lobbying firm in Anchorage — to lobby for $23 million in federal earmarks for the Town of Wasilla (6,000 residents). Steven Silver was a former chief of staff to none other than Sen. Ted Stevens. Ted’s son, Ben Stevens, was also hired by the Anchorage firm as a federal lobbyist in the 1990′s. Silver was also alleged to have direct ties with lobbyist, Jack Abramoff, who is now serving a prison term for the tribes-and-bribes scandal. U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens was indicted in July on seven counts of felony charges; he is a long-time member of Alaska’s Republican machine. When running for Lt. Governor in 2001, Palin took substantial campaign contributions from convicted criminal and VECO founder, Bill Allen, and VECO employees. Allen is the man who U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens allegedly took gifts from; Allen pleaded guilty to bribery and corruption charges in 2007. (Note: According to two VECO employees, Palin allegedly visited Allen in his home to discuss plans for her future in 2001, before the corruption scandal broke. We have no way of knowing if these visits actually occurred.) Our comment, here, is to reaffirm that Palin sure wasn’t shy about using the “old boy network” to lobby and secure more monies for pork spending. Palin left the Village of Wasilla with a $20 million budget deficit.

    · Palin’s pork requests and spending earned her the oft-used nickname, “Queen of Pork.” Her spending of the federal earmark funds slated for the bridge to nowhere fiasco is now common knowledge. However, in February of this year, Palin’s office sent Sen. Ted Stevens a 70-page memo outlining almost $200 million worth of new funding requests for Alaska.

    · Palin was completely false to the American people and her own constituents by claiming that she said, “thanks, but no thanks,” to the bridge from nowhere and more earmark funding. In truth, it was exactly the other way around. Earlier Palin interviews — as well as an article written by her own special counsel, John Katz, that ran in a March 2008 edition of the “Juneau Empire” — prove this, unequivocally. She did not become a “born again pork reformer” until Congress instructed her to significantly decrease her earmark requests. It became a matter of her political survival and ambitions, and to negate a lot of negative press in the lower 48.

    · Todd Palin is a former member of the Alaska Independence Party; Sarah Palin has attended at least two of their conventions, and gave them a “thumbs up” only seven months ago, advising them to, “keep up the good work.”

    · Any Palin leadership activities or decisions with the Alaska National Guard are practically non-existent. She has given them no direction, no commands. According to General Craig Campbell, the service commander of Alaska’s National Guard, Palin gave him substantial authority to act on his own. She has given him no direct approval or disapproval of any action since she took office.

    · When Plain took office as governor, she hired at least two friends and placed them in positions for which they had zero or little experience or qualifications: Franci Havemeister , a former real estate agent, was appointed to the State Department of Agriculture; Talis Colberg was appointed Attorney General. Talis was virtually an unknown and former assemblyman of the small Borough of Matanuska-Susitna. State legislators have complained that Governor Palin has been a “no-show” at certain important legislative meetings, and has come under fire for not responding to the communications and needs of a number of mayors and authorities throughout Alaska.

    I love that she’s wearing that brooch, like she gives a shit about the polar bears. BITCH!

  23. OK, so this is great to have her doing SNL – she has a sense of humor about herself! Tina Fey should be able to take a few things aims back in her direction, if she can’t, get outta the biz baby.

    VOTE GEEZER/GIDGET ’08 – Yes, I’m Serious.

    ·Palin wants to expand oil and gas drilling in Alaska at the expense of environmentally protected areas and Alaskan native sovereignty. She’s filed several lawsuits against the Feds protesting the listing of polar bears as an endangered species; the listing could interfere with development of oil and gas in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas, which provide habitat for the polar bears.

    ·Palin also wants to take hunting and fishing opportunities away from native subsistence villagers to enhance sports hunting and fishing. As for the issue surrounding sovereignty, both the state courts and the federal courts have struck down Palin’s policy of refusing to recognize the sovereign authority of Alaska Tribes. Nonetheless, Palin’s policy of refusing to recognize Alaska tribal sovereignty remains unchanged.

    ·According to Rick Steiner, a marine conservation specialist and University of Alaska professor: “Although Alaska is ground zero in the crisis of global warming, Palin has done virtually nothing to address the problem except hold meetings and appoint a “climate sub-cabinet” that likewise has done little. Lots of talk, no action. Although in the past two years the Arctic summer sea ice shrunk to the lowest levels ever recorded, Palin apparently does not believe it is human-induced or cause for alarm. She was asked to establish an Alaska Office on Climate Change, an Alaska Climate Response Fund (based on a tax on Alaska oil production) and emissions reduction targets for Alaska, but has taken no action on those requests.”

    This woman is an idiot!

    Those Alaskan native’s are getting paid for whatever oil is extracted. Poll them instead of watching a reporter give you their opinion of what they feel and you’ll get a completely different answer than what you will always believe. Polar bears do not exist solely in the territory that you feel is yours. There are more now than five years ago, they’re starting to get thinner though, because lack of hunting has caused them to run short of food due to polar bear overcrowding.

    I know of zero hunters that hunt just for sport. Cutting the head off and leaving the rest to rot is completely unheard of. I wonder, for example, how many times you’ve gotten deer meat from your local food pantry, and thought it was beef.

    ‘Global warming’ is circadian rhythm. Look that up.

    GM is failing because of unions. I’ll applaud when they finally shut their doors for good. I’m tired of supporting the Mexican and Canadian economy anyway. Buy made in America–buy Honda or Toyota.

    OMG OMG THAT OVAL OFFICE LINK IS SO FUNNY! HAHAHABAHAHAHBAHAHAHA

    To Mike 76:

    You might want to do some reading about the Polar Bears; you’re dead wrong, and very out of touch. Bear over-crowding…are you for real? What the flip does oil have to do with challenging Alaska native fishing and hunting substinences or sovereignty? And you’re kidding about global warming, right? If your post isn’t a joke, you’d better put the bong down, and get some fresh air.

  28. SmarterThanMike

    Dear, sweetly-retarded Mike:

    Global warming is not “circadian rhythm.” Circadian rhythm (and here I implore you to take your own advice and “look it up”) is a physiological/biological/behavioral phenomenon. You may have heard it referred to as your “biological clock.” Since the global climate system, believe it or not, is not an organism, it cannot have a circadian rhythm.

    Circadian rhythm is, among other things, observable in the way that your body secretes less melatonin during daylight hours than it does when it is dark out.

    Thanks, though, for demonstrating the level of scientific proficiency of the average climate change denier.

  29. Oh geeez…. Sarah, don’t quit your day job. You’re not as funny as you think you are.

  30. me

    i’m hoping that everyone in the studio audience boos her

  31. halle

    I would have told SNL to go the H_ _ _. John McCain should have told Letterman the same and also the biaches at the view the same. They are dealing with hardcore libs and its bs

  32. Gboba

    How the fuck does she impersonate Tina Fey? Other than naturally looking like Tina, there is nothing for Palin to do other than trying to not sound like an idiot. Nice come back by Ms. Sarah Palin. Fucking idiots.

  33. RE: SNL appearance………..Two Thumbs Sarah! Awesome job!

  34. Steven Baldwin

    RE: SNL appearance………..Two Thumbs Sarah! Awesome job!

  35. whatever

    Well golly-gosh-gee-wizz-you-betcha-gosh-darn!! Perhaps she can see Russia from the SNL studio

    /I forgot—*forced WINK*

  36. Re: polar bear pin

    @73. bad banana

    Nice catch! I have to agree 100%

  37. O-M-G shes wearing a Polar Bear Pin

    SARAH PALIN ON POLAR BEARS:

    “”I can’t express how extremely disappointed I am that the United States Fish and Wildlife Service has chosen to list the polar bear as threatened under the Endangered Species Act…. The polar bear should be removed from the endangered species list because its protected status will hamper drilling for oil and gas in Alaska” – Sarah Palin

    Take that pin off. NOW. K. Thanx.

  38. Pete ACORN

    Billie,

    Thanks for your comments. Despite all you claimed, I’ll take Palin’s decisive experience and her willingness to stand up to the good ole boys network in Alaska over the corrupt Dalai Bama any time, any day. Your messiah has never done anything, never accomplished anything, never created wealth as a small business owner, was never a mayor, was never a governor. The Dalai Bama is not/not qualified. In fact, there has never been a more poorly qualified candidate than your messiah.

    Pete

  39. guest

    Doesn’t Sarah Palin know that everybody is just making fun of her?
    She needs to stop embarassing herself.

  40. Vote in 2008

    @90Pete ACORN
    … “Dalai Bama any time”..

    That statement just made everything you completely said void and nonsensical. Enjoy your irrelevancy.

  41. Lana

    LOL the polar bear pin. She acts like she loves animal but shoots wolves from a helicopter. Go figure.

    As for the SNL appearance. I can’t believed she played into their trap. It’s bad enough that she’s the butt of the joke and obviously uncomfortable but acting like she’s a good sport when she’s cringing and perhaps hurting a little inside – she went for it. It’s bad enough people subject you to insult but trying to act like it doesn’t matter to you when it does – people can tell. But nonetheless it was funny as hell watching her squirm and sit uncomfortably through the whole thing. Funny as hell!

  42. Boo

    there is something inately creepy about this woman………………..almost robotic/stepford wifey…………………..with an evil agenda???hmmmmm

  43. Stinky McPutz

    Ah, that Sarah Palin is a bresh of freath air….,

  44. Look how boring that turned out. Much ado about nothing.

  45. Vote for America, Vote Obama

    She should be confirmed to a mental institution.

    I approve this message.

  46. libssuck

    Obama doesn’t have enough experience to be a baby sitter you stupid liberals.

  47. libssuck
