Sarah Palin Prepares For SNL

Sarah Palin Prepares For SNL

Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin arrives at New York City’s Omni Berkshire Hotel on Saturday afternoon carrying her son Trig, 6 months.

Palin, 44, told reporters how excited she is to appear on tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live: “I have no idea what to expect because I haven’t seen any scripts or anything else yet, but it will be fun. The opportunity to show American television watchers anyway that you get to have a sense of humor through all of this or even just this really would be wearin’, tearin’ on you, so an opportunity to show that sense of humor and that side of all of this, I look forward to it.”

Saturday Night Live (SNL) airs tonight @ 11:30PM ET/PT on NBC.

    i am so sick of her. tina fey has been HILARIOUS but having her on the show is almost a roundabout way of apologising to her which is ridiculous. she called the skits sexist and now shes going to take part in them??? she must be REALLY desperate for votes. i guess thats because after that video emerged from ohio she realise the only people voting for her are white trash racist hillbillies. wow. what what great support she has!

    brandon Says:

    there is nothing better than an smart, outspoken woman…especially one who realy cares about the lives of children. I think she has shown the world that it is really a woman’s right to choose. She has shown us that sacrifice in the name of a child not born yet, is another one of these “choices”….Rock on!!!

    AmIsleeping Says:

    is this whole thing for real? I am all for equal opportunity and everything, and I am the first person to promote gender equality, but for Real? This woman has been found unethical by a group of her peers, and there is enough circumstantial evidence to suggest she is not telling the whole truth about the birth of her last child. Perhaps if she was running for the head of the local PTA we could ignore most of these character issues, but Vice-President? bottomline…. Americans have become complacent and allowed themselves to just blow hot air around but no one ever actually makes a real change for society.. I hope everyone thinks long and hard on election day.

    What a bunch of haters here. I’m certainly not voting for McCain – Palin, but it doesn’t mean I have to insult her/them here. I say good for her for going and doing this, showing a great sense of humor and lack of an enormous ego.

    tom Says:

    God I can’t wait tell Obama loses this election so I don’t have to see that media generated phony who’s every aspect of his campaign is staged. America this is not only about the Presidency this is about a liberal dominance not seen in government since 1933, Vote McCain/ Palin Concluding two wars, world financial troubles and a more dangerous world do you want Pelosi, Reed and Obama in power of every aspect of the government with no one to stop them from any agenda they will enact, I’m a democrat and I that much power in one party will not be good for America and in these times it will be even dangerous for America. Think before you vote don’t just follow the hype.

    ok everyone seriously get your head out of your asses. Shes a very loving down to earth wife and mother of five, she has great morals–something that everyone in the world seems to lack these days–she is a Christian, shes tough, and she happens to have one of the HIGHEST APPROVAL RATINGS of ANY governer in the country.

    people are jumping all over her and attacking her and her family for every breath they take. Jesus everyone, get a grip. Tell me now, why isnt anyone saying anything about Joe Biden? im sure people could find all kinds of dirt on him

    eatamoosebugrer Says:

    I give Sarah props for bring baby Trig, SNL will have to give Sarah the kid gloves treatment, after all she’s holding tight to her baby against the corrupt liberal media. I hope Joe the plumber drinking his six-pack will stay up late to watch her magic wink-wink.

    mccain palin 08 Says:

    Matt, very nice comments. I could care less who people are voting for, it is a beautiful part of living in this country to be able to pick our leaders…but seriously its VERY embarrassing and un-american to absolutley put someone down for every single move they make

    and to whoever said something about what she was wearing….she is a WOMAN for God’s sake! it is a different outfit than her traditional suit but come on, its not revealing or anything, its classy! I mean i wouldnt wanna see george bush wearing that outfit but palin is a girl you know!

    sam Says:

    Tom I couldn’t agree with you more, though I doubt most Americans realize it, this would be one of the most profound political and ideological shifts in US history. Liberals would dominate the entire government in a way they haven’t since 1965 or 1933, with filibuster proof majorities that will change America culturally, socially, on taxes, immigration policies, foreign policy, judges I can’t believe in times like this instead of a divided government to avoid extremes on both sides Americans might give power to a democrats party not seen in 60 years and these are not the democrats of 65 or 33 where socially they were moderate and even conservative. I hope America realizes what it is getting itself into, before it’s to late.

    Mandys_mom Says:

    I think Sarah Palin is a breath of fresh air for both parties. She shows ( and WE know ) that a woman is a better multi-tasker and it doesn’t deny her children/family the love and care they need for a Mom to work away from home AND at home. I’m looking forward to SNL !! GO SARAH !!

    She’s a right-wing, evangelical nut job and, while I would love to see a woman in the White House as either Prez or VP, this woman is not the one! I feel especially sorry for her pregnant teen that she trotted out on the world stage in some sort of skewed attempt to demonstrate “family values — surely what that child needed at that most vulnerable time in her life was privacy and sensitivity.

    It’s about time. Would you bet your life that the new era would be worse than the past one? Only an idiot would think that Obama would be worse than 2 Bush terms, as many Republicans have already attested to by their support of him.

    Donald your sick, because she is wearing boots she looks like a hooker , with a skirt that goes down to her knees and a blazer that covers her to her neck, Obama supports are pathetic … O and I saw a picture the other day with Micelle Obama wearing a dress and knee high boots, so is she a hooker too. NObama supporters are just jealous because every democratic women politician in national politics looks like a hag or a she-man, so they hate Palin because she has a great body, pretty face, handsome sporty husband runs a State and a mother of 5 and she didn’t rise up in politics on her husbands coattails or anyone else’s,

    Please kids, show me the adult room…I’m barfing in here..

    Goooo Palin!!! Your allowed to have some fun just like the other guys on SNL.

    Heck! I’ll share some of my fun with ya gurl..LOL

    silverbullet Says:

    Palin is such a ball of fluff. To think that she could possibly carry off the responsibilities of the VP, lightweight as they are, is ludicrous. She’d get chewed to shreds domestically and in the foreign affairs arena, as she’s already so ably demonstrated.

    McCain is a true American hero. While I dont agree with Democrats Obama has not shown anything but steadfast adherence to US values in his time in state and federal government over the past decade. …However just do some searches on Todd and Sarah Palin and Alaska Independence Party.

    The Palins have very close ties to separatist AIP militia who were supported by Iran back in the 90′s. Sarah still embraces them and AIP says she just wears the republican title and that she is one of them.

    Unbelieveable that there are actually people who are going to throw votes away on her–(and oh yeah McCain too)–based on their platform, which is reactionary, hateful and obviously pandering to the low-info voter. Way to go!

    what really grinds my gears is how much people care about her looks more then her intelligence,
    american do the smart thing and stop worrying about obama’s race, religion, or even where he was born and start worrying about how a human can lead. isn’t that what this election is about? LEADING!
    so all you ignorant right wing racist selfish republicans please look past the color and try to see the actual person.
    vote OBAMA BIDEN
    and not vote mccain, the “christian thing to do”

    Katherine Says:

    I hear a bunch of comments about what a great mother/Christian/women Sarah Palin is. But how on Earth does that qualify her to take on the second hardest job in the country…maybe even in the world? If the Democratic partyhad someone as unknown and unqualified as Sarah Palin on their ticket, the Republicans would not have let it rest.

    They would have made it a personal attack on Obama’s character and decision-making and ability to rule a country if he “couldn’t even pick a qualified running mate”. But when it’s one of their own, they put on their rose-tinted glasses, and spin and spin and spin until the rest of the country is left dizzy. The reason the Republican party doesn’t get called out on it’s crap is because it’s too busy spewing it.

And trust me your husbands think she is HOT. I wouldn’t believe him when he tells you “of course I voted for Osama Obama” because, he didn’t and you’ll never know. Face it, she’s beautiful, smart and will make one hell of a vice president.

    Jo Ann Says:

    So much hate. Such hateful people. Glad that mature people showed her respect and gave her a loud applause on SNL. She was great. Why do hateful people call her a dumbass? She didn’t mess up in her acceptance speech. She didn’t mess up in the debates against the old guy, the same old guy who said the three letter word – J-O-B-S. She didn’t mess up on SNL. She was very good. She was great on Weekend Live.

    Anon Says:

    I didn’t watch it. And just so you know. I called 30 Rock to NBC and lodged a complaint. The problem I have is that she is peddling hate andpromoting a lot of really bad things to come out of people’s mouths. Even John McCain made a half-hearted attemptto let people know not to act ugly. BUt Palin has encouraged ugly behavior. So I didn’t watch and I complained. I can live without seeing Sarah Palin get a chance to soften her image. The point of putting her on SNL is that it makes her seem harmless and creates an impression that she is not a mean hater person. But she is in reality.

    Jackie Says:

    Palin looks like she’s working Times Square.

    As Palin has admitted she HAS NO KINOWLEDGE of foreign policy, perhaps her time would be better spent attending seminars at the Harvard School of Economics, the Diplomatic Corp, and the School of Foreign Policy instead of guest starring on a comedy show.

    What’s with everyone calling either Obama or McCain supporters complete idiots? It’s this thing called democracy were people are actually allowed to chose their own political beliefs.

    You can’t judge a person simply from which candidate they support. It seems that many of you just can’t accept the fact that others seem to think differently from you. Grow up and show some maturity.

  97. 97
    Bess Says:

    And I am an Obama supporter but these people calling Palin hooker trash simply because of the pair of shoes she is wearing are being completely inappropriate.
    Although I don’t agree with many of her beliefs she is still a good mother and successful career woman. Yet today society seems it’s ok to discredit everything a woman has done simply because of the pair of shoes she put on that morning?

    michael Says:

    I am not concerned with Trig’s sleeping. I am concerned with his face rarely showing since I wonder whether he really has Down Syndrome and would like experts in the field to be able to come to a consensus on this if possible. The presence of epicanthic folds does not prove anything since they are present not just in Down Syndrome but also among the Inuit population, and Todd Palin is part Inuit. If he does not have Down Syndrome, then there is less circumstantial evidence that he is Sarah Palin’s baby.

    Let’s see–they tried to recall her when she was mayor of Wasilla. She stretches all the State of Alaska’s rules when it comes to per diem, travel expenses, donations to her church, hiring her friends and having her high school year book in the office to see what job can be offered; putting her entire family (including children) on the payroll, letting her husband order the staff around. State of Alaska voters were polled and 85% said they did not trust her but were grateful for the extra oil money she got them. Hmmmmmm–is this the best running mate that Senator McCain could find?
