Palin appears on NBC Saturday Night Live

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin appeared on the NBC Saturday Night Live with Tina Fey. The show’s opening sketch presented a mock press conference with Fey reprising his role as the governor of Alaska. The piece then cut to a shot of Palin Fey watching the performance of a television monitor, with Lorne Michaels, the show’s executive producer.

“I think that is not only a realistic representation of the way my press conferences are gone,” he said.

“Why do not we could have done the” 30 Rock “sketch that I wrote?” Asked, referring to the NBC comedy that Fey stars.

“Honestly, it was not enough to know that people show,” Michaels responds.

The schedule for opening also included a surprise visit by Alec Baldwin, Fey “30 Rock” co-star, Alec Baldwin, who mistook for Palin Fey, and tried to convince Michaels not let Fey appears on the show with the governor. He snapped his fingers, trying to remember the nickname that some had given Palin.
“Caribou Barbie,” he recalled Palin.

Baldwin, still unaware that he was talking with the governor, he continued: “You want it, our Tina, to go there and be there with that horrible woman,” he asked. “What they have to say to you?”

Michaels said that was standing next to the real Palin.

“Excuse me, I must say this,” Baldwin ago. “You are way hotter in person. I mean seriously. I mean, I can not believe that let your game.”

Palin laughed and replied that the Baldwin brother, Stephen, was his favorite. Stephen Baldwin, also an actor, is a Christian conservative with his own ministry.

Palin then took the podium and told reporters that she was not going to take any of your questions.

Then came the signature line that opens the show each weekend: “Live from New York, on Saturday night.”

Later in the show, Palin appeared in the SNL “Weekend Update”, with cast members Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers.

“I’ve been thinking along and I will not do the piece being tested,” Palin said Meyers. “My instinct tells me that it might be a bad idea for the campaign.”

Poehler said it would hand and launched into a rap about being Sarah Palin. Among his backup dancers were cast member Jason which supplanted Sukeikis by Palin’s husband, Todd.

Palin slots along the music, even raising their hands when Poehler sang “All the Mavericks at home, put your hands up! All plumbers in the house, put your pants up!”

The plumber reference was meant to invoke the now-famous Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher, that Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain has maintained as a small business owner who will see their taxes increase if his Democratic rival, Senator Barack Obama, wins the elections.

In both skits, Palin delivered her lines with a straight face, but most of the comic played foil to the show’s cast of mischief-makers.

On Thursday, several sources told CNN that Palin scheduled to appear in the hit show.

“Saturday Night Live” has highlighted the opening of three skits in which former cast member Tina Fey and Palin lookalike portrays the governor of Alaska.

Fey first appeared as Palin for the show of the season premiere last month in a sketch with SNL cast member Amy Poehler, who played Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Fey reprises his role as Palin two weeks later, again next to Poehler, who played the CBS Katie Couric Palin in a parody of the interview with CBS anchor earlier this week.

Earlier this week, Palin told reporters that he would like to appear on the show with Fey, The Associated Press reported.

“I love her, she is a scream and she is so talented,” said Palin, according to the AP.

“It would be fun to meet her, imitation and continue to give their new material.”
