Tina Fey was back on SNL this last Saturday night to reprise her role as Sarah Palin, and nailed it! This skit included the potential candidates that did not attend Fox News’ actual debate last week. The guy who played Donald Trump, Darrell Hammond, was also pretty entertaining..
Also appearing were other potential Republican candidates who haven’t yet officially announced. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was played by Jason Sudeikis and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was played by Bobby Moynihan.
Tina Fey received the Mark Twain Prize “for American humor”at the Kennedy Center on Sunday, November 14th. If you watched it on television (PBS) you may have missed some of her comments. They were edited out. (PBS denied censorship.)
Here is the segment of her acceptance speech that was edited:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Her entire acceptance speech (it was hilarious) was about 15 minutes long. If you actually want to see it,go here. It is the second video.
H/T: Crooks & Liars for this video.
David Shuster looks back on Saturday Night Live’s interpretation of the past political season. Tina Fey is nominated for Emmy’s for her role as Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live as well as her role on “30 Rock”.
Nobody captured the true essence of Sarah Palin better than Tina Fey. She played Palin even better than Palin. You betcha …
Republican John McCain showed his funny side with an appearance on a US television comedy show on Saturday, less than three days from historic presidential election.
McCain appeared as the presenter of QVC television shopping channel, saying it was the only station he could afford airtime, in contrast to rival Barack Obama’s multi-million dollar “informercial” which aired this week.“The final days are the most essential,” McCain said of the election campaign.
“This past Wednesday Barack Obama purchased airtime on three major networks. We however can only afford QVC,” he said. “Tonight we come before you to give you some final remarks on our campaign.”
Fey, impersonating Palin, played off media reports that she was going “rogue” and offered up a “Palin 2012″ t-shirt.
During the weekend report with Seth Meyers, McCain plays “the sad grandpa”.. where he says that Obama is young and can run again later, but he’s old and it’s HIS turn to be president!
If the campaign doesn’t end soon, the ladies on the View are going to kill each other. Ellen DeGeneres says she has been watching CNN so much that she is now calling her den “The Situation Room.” Which pales next to the X-rated Sarah Palin look-a-like film that Hustler Publisher Larry Flynt has made. Poster of the day is “Attack of the 50ft Palin.” The conservative blogs are attacking Family Guy for sticking a McCain/Palin pin on a character wearing a Nazi uniform. The McCain campaign keeps pinning it’s hopes on a certain Joe, that would be “Joe the Plumber.” A Portland, Oregon radio station KEX organized a donation drive to help “Joe the Plumber” pay his overdue tax bill. They raised more than what Joe needed, they raised $1,800.00.
Three days after a mostly gaffe-free debate performance, the Alaska governor fumbled during a speech in which she praised U.S. soldiers for “fighting terrorism and protecting us and our democratic values”.
“They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan,” she told several hundred supporters at a fundraising event in San Francisco.
Matthew Yglesias, who is now at ThinkProgress, drew a map for Palin in an attempt to help her out..
Next question to Governor Palin: What are the blue parts…?
