Live from New York, It’s Sarah Palin

October 20th, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Saturday Night Live continued its long history of political cameos this week, with Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin making two appearances on the show. She follows the likes of Gerald Ford, Janet Reno and, most recently, Hillary Clinton, who have all dropped in to prove that they can handle some good-natured lampooning.

So how’d Gov. Palin do? Hulu has clips from both of her appearances this week, so you can be the judge. She appears first in the opener and again with Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler on Weekend Update. And though Palin didn’t rap along with Poehler behind the news desk, she did raise the roof a little. Her opening sketch proves she’s a good sport about all the jibes — and even capable of delivering a good zinger.
