Tina Fey Lampoons Palin
These days it feels like Tina Fey never left Saturday Night Live â€“ and that's a good thing. The 30 Rock star suited up once again on Saturday to portray Sarah Palin in a send-up of last Thursday's vice presidential debate.
"Hey, can I call you Joe?" Tina asked Jason Sudeikis, as a spot-on Joe Biden, who responds, "Of course!"
"Okay, because I practiced a couple zingers where I call ya Joe," she replies to laughter.
Queen Latifah also took a special guest turn as debate moderator Gwen Ifill, saying, "As moderator, I will not ask any follow up questions beyond, 'Do you agree,' or, 'Your response?' so as not to appear biased in favor of Barack Obama, in light of my new book, The Breakthrough: The Politics of Race in the Age of Obama coming out on inaguaration day and available for preorder on Amazon.com."
Tina ran with her by now familiar hilarious impersonation of Palin, playing up the frequent use of the word "maverick," and included a number of winks and cute smiles for the camera.
"You know, John McCain and I, we're a couple of mavericks, and goshdarnit, we're going to take that maverick energy right to Washington and we're gonna use it to fix this financial crisis and everything else that's plaguing this great country of ours," she rattles off with a signature Palin smile.
