Tina Fey is the New "Maverick"
SNL regular Jason Sudeikis impersonated Democratic VP nominee Joe Biden and guest star Queen Latifah as PBS journalist and debate moderator Gwen Ifill. Together, they parodied Thursday night’s debate between Palin and Biden.
“We’re gonna ask ourselves what would a maverick do in this situation, and then ya’ know, we’ll do that,” Fey‘s Palin responded when asked on how to deal with the financial crisis.
Fey-as-Palin, who habitually winked at the audience, dismissed questions about climate change, saying she wanted to talk about taxes instead: “We are not afraid to get mavericky in there.”
At the end of the segment, after delivering a shout-out to a local Alaska third-grade, she asked with flute in hand, “Are we not doing the talent portion?”
