    Defiling the place is all she'll do. A pariah. No thank you, not this weekend.

    John McCain could have picked a donkey as a running mate and the Republicans would still support it.

    Oh wait, he did...

    I hope they tell who is who. Will the real Sarah stand up? Plus when they are side by side can we vote to see who would be the best VP, Sarah or Tina?

    Should I be prepared for a good laugh or scared that she will spread hate speech again? Honestly, I am fed up with this potential President-to-be. I think it's time the American people had an honest, intelligent Vice President, one who serves the needs of the people, not the needs of the folks at Enron. The only good thing that can come from a Palin Vice Presidency is that no one will get shot if she decides to go hunting.

    Good, another chance to prove what an idiot she is. She can't even figure out that Tina Fey was mocking her in those skits.

    Acting is her true calling. She's good at delivering other people's lines. After she ruins any chance McCain might have had of winning (he would have lost anyway), she'll hire Huckabee's agent and move to Hollywood, and bomb out there too. Country First? I think not. Palin First.
    P.S. Someone please tell Huckabee to go back to preaching!

    PLEASE! Of course, Palin was going to show up on SNL-she is a big JOKE after all.

    Wait a D A M N minute, she won't be interviewed by NBC's Brian Williams, NBC's Tom Brokaw, yet she will do NBC's Saturday Night Live. I will never watch that show again

    I HOPE that this attempt by SNL to continue its ratings won't result in this wingnut getting more votes.

    Sarah is cute, she is a fertile female that man can smell a block away, but she doesn't have what it takes between her ears to be vice president of the PTA.

    I won't watch it, SNL!

    She belongs on SNL! I hope they give her a job so she doesn't have time to divide our country further. Not to mention put our national security at risk. Maybe her and Joe the Plummer can get their on sitcom?

    Hah. Palin's just going to set herself up to look even more of a fool.

    Oh goody,
    I'd rather see more Tina Fey impersonations instead of the real Gov. Palin!
    I hope she's enjoying her moment in the spotlight she'll be yesterdays news soon!

    Good for her. The Republicans need to get on more liberal shows and present their case. Otherwise, we will have a far left President with a left wing Congress.

    I heard Obama will make students with a GPA of 3.5 give up some points to students with a GPA under 2. Is this true?

    I guess the McCain camp is trying to remake themselves in the last few weeks of the campaign. I hope the American public see this group for what they really are. A couple of phonies.

    Well, we know she can memorize a script. But how is her improv?

    If the question is "who will Tina Fey play?" perhaps, Tina can go on the stump with John and help John communicate his vision for the future in a positive and entertaining way. I like a McCain / Fey ticket much better than the current duo.

    She should just be herself. That's funny enough.

    Good. I hope the audience will shout "terrorist "and "kill her" when she appears.

    little late now, don't think anyone really cares to see her on SNL, better off if Tina comes back as Palin. Hey, maybe she should try to patch things up with Letterman on behalf of old Maverick instead and go on the late show? ha ha.....
