Sarah Palin -- SNL Video Clip!

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin plays herself in the opening segment of yesterday’s episode of Saturday Night Live. She stood with executive producer Lorne Michaels as the two watched Fey play Palin during a mock news conference.

Palin also went on to deliver the show’s signature starting line, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night“. Politically savvy move on Palin‘s part? You decide! Watch the video below –

Palin also dropped by the news segment of the show, “Weekend Update”, where she did a little rapping. Yes, Palin raps!!! Watch that video here. For some behind-the-scenes backstage video footage, click here!

    FIRST BITCHEZZZZZZZZ! I looooove Sarah Palin. She’s so stupid she makes George Bush sound smart.

  • a

    she was pretty funny for a politician. i really liked the part with mark whalberg though…do I have to bust open your skull too? so funny!

  • lolz

    That was short lol

    Hahah I loved that part when Alec Baldwin said the trouth <3

  • Terumi

    It was really short compared to all the other Sarah Palin skits. And I think it would have been so much funnier if they showed more of Tina Fey and Sarah Palin together…or just more Tina…idk it just seemed ok to me, But maybe I just expected to much

  • Ace

    She did great considering she’s been a little busy this week =)

    I know some of you just hate her. I don’t know why. Seriously – I can understand some arguments for not feeling confident voting for her, but I really don’t get the vicious hate. She’ pretty cool.

  • hannah duncan

    Hahahaha that was funny as! you gotta love tina!!

  • lolz

    You dont know why some people hate her?

    Im gonna speak for my self now.. but the reason I dont like her, ( I dont hate her ) Is because she wanna take away the womans rights and make this country like Iran. She is Really strict with her religion and wants to force inocent people in to her religion! ( school ), she is against gay marrige,agains abortion, she wanst no sex befor marrige.. etc! She is simply scary and nuts.. She doesn’t wanna let people live their lives as THEY want. She wants people live by the way SHE wants.

  • james

    this was way too hyped up. totally over rated. she ruined this whole thing. but tina fey was still awesome

  • lizzie

    Thank you Jared – You are the first one posting this. This was a good skit, and you just know Palin couldn’t have handled any more than she did.

  • tia

    Seriously – I can understand some arguments for not feeling confident voting for her,

    where to even begin! seriously, i dont think i have the time to type up all the reasons that millions of peple have no respect for her. im kinda surprised anyone could still want to see her in the white house when there is a huge pssibility that she could end up as President of the United States of America. How anyone could actually support that possibility makes me feel physically ill

  • Michelle

    Love Palin. Love the part Palin with Baldwin, so hilarious.

    My vote definitely goes to McCain/Palin on this Nov. 4th.

  • katie

    i am voting Obama/Biden without doubt come election day. as is every single person I know. But this was funny–but that really had nothing to do with sarah palin since it was everyone else making the jokes, she sorta just stood there OH YEAH! the thing with mark whalberg was SOOOOOOOO funny! hahahahahaha! i totally saw that thing with him on letterman the other night lol. that was the best part f this whole thing!

  • Miranda

    I LOVE Sarah Palin!!!!!

    McCain-Palin 2008

  • Jess

    I can’t believe she went on the show that made fun of her. It’s seems bizzare that a politician would do an SNL skit.

  • hunter

    The rap was better. haha but I dunno. She wasn’t THAT funny. She coulda been a whole lot funnier.

    OBAMA/Biden 08..cause we need REAL change. And not a VP who could be a heartbeat away from presidency who will ruin what my grandma fought for, for my sisters, yo.

  • Rach

    What an idiot. To believe she can get THAT close to becoming President! Fools.

  • martis

    Wow, that was so not funny on Palin’s behalf

  • jesse

    I thought she was great ! And to all you obama biden supporters …. keep supporting the man who won’t even wear an american flag pin on his chest … and went to jeramiah wrights church…..I’m sorry I’m voting for experience and dignity this november …and ill give you a hint who I’m voting for ….NOT for obama!

  • jesse

    I thought she was great ! And to all you obama biden supporters …. keep supporting the man who won’t even wear an american flag pin on his chest … and went to jeramiah wrights church…..I’m sooooooo glad me and everyone in my family and that I know already voted mccain/palin!!!!! Its called absentee ballets bitchess!

    Mccain/palin all the way!

  • sylvester stallone

    Jess #14:
    Bill Clinton went on SNL when he campaigned. Actually, many people think that it was the defining moment of his campaign and helped him win the presidency.

  • Laurel

    Tina Fey plays Sarah Palin better.

  • hmm

    #20 Actually Bill Clinton went on the Arsenio Hall show and played the saxophone which was considered a defining moment in his campaign. And Jesse, if you think McCain has dignity, I have a bridge to nowhere to sell you.

  • Miso

    Hahaha that was awesome :D

  • cain

    she looks good and indeed has a sense of humor

  • S

    Is there any site where I can see what McCain/Palin and Obama/Biden stands for? What they want to do in the US and things they want to change? And things like that?
    I don’t live in the US, so I would love to know!

  • Kate Walsh Fansite

    Omg this is so funny

  • rosalind

    That was awesome! That made me like Sarah a lot more!

  • seven

    What was going on the the background with the llama being led by someone dressed as Abe Lincoln or was it a Hasidic Jew. Surreal. And the 2 cheeleaders who walked in a bit later. Spooky. Like Caribou Barbie.

  • YELLOW ROSE

    MCCAIN/PALIN all the way!!!!!! What a phenomenal team!

  • Kits

    To Lolz – #7

    Exactly. Plus the fact that she’s quite the phony. She never said “thanks but no thanks” to Congress for the funding for the bridge to nowhere; it was exactly the other way aournd. More stuff is comng out about her every day. Take a look at this:

    The only people that like Palin are the neocon part of the Republican base. They support the second phase of the Bush Doctrine. And yes, Palin should have know what this was, when asked by Charlie! She is stupid. Traditional Republicans can’t stand her.

  • Zam

    Vote for Obama

  • Caroline

    Palin was kind of dull and stupid; no humor, no fun at all. Fey was great; so was Baldwin. Loved Mark W too; but what was the point of Palin being there? It brought down the whole show. Tina is great, as usual.

    OBAMA!!!

  • Angi

    DO NOT WANT!

    Everyone already explained why they don’t like her. I have nothing more to add but:

    Obama 08!

  • Amy

    I loved it!

    I love how people describe pro life as “against abortion” as if that makes the pro choice side sound better. I think anybody with a heart is against abortion, it’s just that pro choice believes that it’s a hard choice to make and that women should make the choice, not the law. It’s really a difference between what point we think a fetus becomes a human life. I hope nobody is “pro abortion”.

  • GeorgiaM

    To Amy — #40: Interesting comment. I’m pro-choice, but not “pro-abortion.” I support the morning after pill; and only support abortion in the early stages of the pregnancy, and only after the woman has been counselled on other options she has avaiable to her. I am vehemently opposed to abortion during later phases of pregnancy and partial birth abortions. So that makes me, by definition, “pro-choice.” And you’re right; it has to do with my belief of when the fetus becomes human life; it’s based partly on faith, and partly on the science of biology.

  • PP

    She showed guts fronting up to a show that mocked her – just political campaigning or is she for real? She didn’t actually say anything significant at all.
    I thought it was interstesting that she said when interviewed a while back about Tina Fey’s impersonation of her that she watched it with the sound down! Lessens the pain I guess. Maybe that’s how so many men watch her – that sex channel in their brain drowns out what she actually says!

  • hautebabe

    I love Sarah Palin. Shows you can be pretty & wholesome, and still be successful in this messed up world we live in. I share her values. Everyone who hates her, hates her values. I find it sad that people, esp. women hate her so much. Oh no, she may stop people from using abortion as birth control? She favors life? Can’t have that! PAALEEEEZZZ!

    McCain/Palin ’08!!!!!

  • steph

    “Im gonna speak for my self now.. but the reason I dont like her, ( I dont hate her ) Is because she wanna take away the womans rights and make this country like Iran. She is Really strict with her religion and wants to force inocent people in to her religion! ( school ), she is against gay marrige,agains abortion, she wanst no sex befor marrige.. etc! She is simply scary and nuts.. She doesn’t wanna let people live their lives as THEY want. She wants people live by the way SHE wants.”

    Umm, #7, I don’t think you should get to vote.
    Barack Obama opposes gay marriage as well, and I hardly doubt Sarah Palin can make premarital sex illegal.

  • gRACE sEVERYN

    Did you notice in the rap song, there were words to the effect that John McCain’s “smile is kinda creepy.” Whether you agree or not, I am stunned that Sarah Palin would smile and clap along with a song that is disrespectful to her running mate. I am a strong Obama/Biden supporter for many reasons (as I believe they stand a much better chance of making this world a more peaceful place). However, the fact that she herself would disrespect McCain in this way makes her sink even lower in my estimation.

  • Lady

    @ GeorgiaM – your comment on pro choice is the most articulate and best comment I have come across on the subject..

    Very intelligent and very true

  • Chrissie

    The main reason I don’t like Sarah Palin is that she is a complete air head. She makes George Bush appear quick witted and intellectual.
    I don’t care how likable she is as a person. That is just not enough.

    But here are just a few other reasons:

    - Obviously has no interest in the world (did not have a passport until last year!)
    - is “pro life”, even where the woman in question was raped or where her life is in danger.
    - Believes in the death penalty
    - loves killing animals as a sport (I have nothing against culling overpopulated species, but there is something sick about killing for pleasure)
    - Apparently supported the billing of rape victims for pathology tests in the town where she was Mayor
    - Apparently influenced officials to sack her ex brother in law
    - the “build-the-bridge” scandal
    - Apparently does not believe in contraception. That is OK in itself, but she displays a certain lack of responsibility (obviously her daughter knows nothing about contraception, and she allowed herself to become pregnant well into her 40′s – I can only assume this was an unplanned pregnancy, given that SP already had 4 much older children)
    - Sacked her town librarian, because she refused to withdraw certain books from the library (I’ve love to know which titles they were)

    I could go on, but the main issue really is that she is as dumb as a block of wood, but would be a heart beat away from the presidency !!

  • Chrissie

    I agree with GeorgiaM too. Well said!

    SP is entitled to be “pro life”, but this should NOT be a legal doctrine imposed upon the entire fertile female population.

    [I place “pro life” in quotes, because people who are “pro life”, usually also believe in the death penalty, which I would have thought is the opposite of being pro life).

  • katie

    ha i love sarah palin

  • bbygurl

    I loved her..she was awesome lol….I mean there’s no reason to hate Palin…you might not agree on her political decisions or arguments or views but she seems pretty cool.
