    Wait...you mean that wasn't her on SNL all these weeks? Man, you couldve totally fooled me.

    Does this mean Tina Fey is laid off? Tut – tut...with this faltering economy, the Mccain-Palin ticket mows down yet another job. Way to go Hatchet-Man..

    No one talking about Joe Biden. Sarah Palin is the new rock star.

    John McCain and Sarah Palin will win this election.

    Secret Service says claims of shouts saying "Kill Him" at McCain/Palin rallies are unfounded and baseless. Obama quoting a liberal blogger.

    Liberals will not listen to Secret Service and will continue the lies. Check your facts liberals.

    The finality of it all. The 2008 Republican campaign is the biggest joke in the history of the world and is now reduced to slapstick and faux porn ("nailin' palin").

    President Barack Obama, America welcomes you as our new leader for a new era of......

    wait for it.....

    CHANGE

    Glad to hear Obama was only EIGHT YEARS OLD when Ayers committed those heinous crimes. There are a lot of teenagers around now that were eight during the 9-11 attacks. It's good to see that, in another 16 years, they can become "casual acquaintances" with people involved with that attack.
    Ayers and his wife are known terrorists (by pretty much everyone in Chicago), they named their son after a terrorist cop-killer (also well known), and he has been photographed stomping on the American flag. Let's ignore the fact that the limited relationship is enough to prevent Obama from cleaning floors in an FBI building. Obama claims to be just a friendly acquaintance with Ayers. McCain wouldn't even shake his hand. THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE.

    I would vote for Tina Fey for Vice-President before I'd vote for Palin.

    That's nice, Sarah. You refuse to go on "Meet the Press" and you censor reporters/press at your rallies-but you have time to do SNL.

    Enjoy your 15 minutes – they're up on the 4th of November.

    WHO CARES!!!!!

    Big mouthed cheerleader, so what!!!!!

    Nobody cares what ego trip she is on, people see her for what she is. IAn inexperienced woman who bit off more than she could chew. Her family needs her alot more than this country could ever handle her mistakes.

    Go Home Palin, take old man McCain with you.

    Great so she will still write Tina Fey's lines? Watch out Tina, Sarah is coming to take your job... She can't be trusted!

    Okay…is there a reason why no one is addressing the elephant in the room or on the debate table. John McCain’s over all behavior during the debate scared me…this is someone who indicates signs of anger management issues and from a description of a cry baby by Gov. Schwarzenegger…Senator McCain presented as a “girly man” during the debate stating “he got his feelings hurt.” Was he serious?? That whole scene in the debate was uncomfortable to me and very strange and I can not believe no one is talking about it. Senator’s McCain behavior was nothing like what I would have expected from a POW.

    The perfect place for a joke of a VP candidate!

    Hey, Sarah, when are you going to have a press conference?

    Failin doesn't realize we are laughing at her, not with her. Pathetic.

    So...she enjoys her status as a national punchline...? Or does she not understand it?

    Let's see . . . she won't appear on Meet the Press or Face the Nation, she won't give a press conference, she won't give any more interviews unless its Rush Limbaugh, but she'll appear on Saturday Night Live ???

    And this woman is running for Vice President of the United States?

    There is just no better way of saying it – Sarah Palin is an idiot.
    I finally realized what her major malfunction is – she doesn't know what she doesn't know. To think that people want to see her on SNL because they like her? They want to see her because WE are ALL amazed at what an idiot she is and doesn't realize it.

    My guess is she'll stink up the show. It suddenly won't be funny when she's on it.

    She is already getting comfortable for her next career...as a TV talk show host.

    Well...in situations where she has a script/notes she does not do half bad so she should fair well on SNL. It is when she is forced to try and think when she makes herself look stupid and writes scripts for the SNL writers.
