    Say it isn't so Sarah! You can do SNL but not Meet the Press or any of the other political shows? Get a grip.

    I won't waste my Saturday night watching that. Palin is a hate-monger and a fraud. She deserves to be lampooned, not given a platform.

    I will not soon forget that SNL let a hate-monger on their show. The show hasn't been funny for years. I guess they have to take anything they can get at this point as far as ratings go.

    She is a joke just like Joe the Plumber who doesn't even have a real plumbing licence and owes back taxes is a joke. McCain's jokes are not funny and I'm as sick of him as I am of SNL.

    Well, at least Sarah won't have to act. She's got the silly answers all on her own...

    I wouldn't give Sarah the time of day, she's the real joke. Who cares about her. She is the most annoying individual. I can't stand her.

    I'll watch it. SNL is exactly where this train wreck belongs.

    Well, why not... she's proven to be a colossal joke, so it's a natural fit. She may as well try speaking in a situation where the IDEA is to get laughs. Should be safer for her.

    I guess her first real interview has to be done somewhere, sometime!

    If John McCain had a record he would have run on it. Instead lies and accusations smearing Obama. Obama is a smart man and has run a well planed campaign. America would benifit from his demeaner and judgement

  14. WHAT?

    Good...she'll be looking for work after she loses this election and is impeached in Alaska.

    The Americans have a right to hear from the next person who could be a heartbeat away from being President of OUR COUNTRY.

    Interviews are the way it is done, like it or not.

    "Canned Speeches and Rally's" are NOT REAL.

    NOT REAL is no way to determine if someone is qualified.

    GET REAL FOR YOUR COUNTRY.

    NO LIVE INTERVIEWS and NO VOTES by AMERICANS.

    Unfortunately, I think she will probably do very well. Humanizing her is not in the Dems best interests. Are ratings so important to Lorne Michaels and NBC that they would risk the outcome of this most important election of our time? Apparently so.

    P.P.S: Will all the mal-contents who delight in spewing out their venom against Sen Obama, please, please go back to Fix News and and voice your concerns? We like to keep positivity flowing here. And we believe in a democratic society. You know? TThank you.

    Stop hiding Sarah and put her on Meet The Press! How about doing some real interviews, and answering some real questions. Anybody falling for this joke of a campaign is not informed or idiotic!

    SNL is Pathetic: Al Sharpton has already hosted SNL. Dec. 2003.
