    I would hope that any appearance by Ms.Palin on SNL, would be after the election, while she is on way back to Alaska, We are talking about another (Chaney) in a dress, and would be hated all over the world like (Chaney).

    I think itmay actually help their campaign.. Let people see her and realize she is very astute as well as funny.

    I was originally for Obama but have decided to go with McCain. Why?
    Taking money from those who have worked hard and used wise judgment to give to those who decided to risk or take the easy way out is just plain wrong. I've worked hard to ensure my kid's future
    and the government is not going to "spread" my hard earned dollars.

    If iI want to give a handout to someone that's fine. When the government takes it from me to give to someone else that's socialism. You can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig.

    Who cares? When is the good Gov's next official interview? It's not like she isn't campaigning for the second highest office in the nation. CNN, you guys are behaving like a bunch of "punks!"

    For proper resource allocation Tina Fay should take vacation this week and let Sarah Palin play herself.

    Thanks for the warning. I will watch a different channel. The Palin women is a horrible. Im less than the 8 weeks since she has been introduced to America, she has proven that she is a pathological liar, an extremist, and a typical "mean girl" to others and a puppet to her controlling husband.

    Palin is NOT a role model. She is a horrible mother, parading that special needs baby around and not policing her loose-moraled daughter, and she is against education since she supports her baby's baby daddy to drop out of school vs. entering he senior year of high school.

    Palin left Wasilla in $+14 million in debt. there's questions on whether the City of Wasilla paid for her house since it was built at the same time as the sports complex that she pushed. She left the state of Alaska in debt from that plane she didn't sell on e-bay but to a Rebublican crony at a $6 million dollar loss, and the "bridge to nowhere was stopped for 2 reasons, (a) the Feds already stopped funding it and (b) the Fed funds they did receive ($105 million), was transferred to the SECOND BRIDGE TO NOWHERE that goes from Anchorage to about 50 miles from Wasilla.

    Palin is a cunning, shrewd, evil human who is a trifecta of Bush-Cheney-Hitler wearing lipstick and a skirt.

    She might need that job after all of the mess and lies that she and McNasty show. Joe six pack and Joe the plumber might just be 1 in the same. McCain has lied saying that this man cannot purchase the business that he has worked for years at because Senator Obama will over tax him. Well Joe the Plumber is a man that does not have the Plumbing license needed to do the job that he is doing and if he has messed up some peoples homes with his so called plumbing expertise OMG what another boo boo, he is not legal so he cannot buy anything plus he only makes a little over $40,000.00 and he is one of the people that Senator Obama will be helping from the bottom up he also has tax issues, yet, Senator McStupid did not vet him just like he didn't vet FAILIN PALIN!+

  16. Maybe

    This is perfect for her. Since she has spent the last 6 weeks perfecting her comedy skills, she may finally find a career.

  23. SNL is pathetic

    It's pretty pathetic SNL is whoring out its show to be used as sounding board for people who accuse a presidential candidate of palling around with terrorists.

    Will Al Sharpton be the next SNL host?
