    FIRST!

    I had to. Also, I actually love the show 30 Rock.

    But I thought it was a good start to the show with Sarah Palin and Mark Wahlberg. Anyone see his interview on Kimmel two nights ago? EEK.

    OK you can let all the political arguments start now.

    Also, in before Red_Vespa.

    Tina was funny, SP was cute. She ain't the devil, after all. (Only the devil's disciple!)

    This afternoon I walked by 30 Rock and there were about a dozen folks outside wearing McCain/Palin t-shirts and carrying signs. A welcoming committee, I guess.

    Kudos to Sarah Palin for playing along. She stood right next to Alec Baldwin while he called her "that awful woman" (if I remember correctly). I'm kinda surprised Baldwin agreed to appear with her given what a rabid liberal he his (didn't he say back in 2004 he would leave the country if Bush was re-elected?)

    Just go to nbc.com - they don't allow it on other places like YouTube, but do have it on their own site.

    The Weekend Update part was hilarious. She also had hot fuck-me boots on at the end of the show during the good-byes...

    Tina Fey is the best. Gays watch 30 rock it's probably the funniest show on television. Starts Oct 30th!

    I realize I am probably jaded and probably about to get attacked however I thought she was kind of boring and that her appearance was way over hyped. She did the most bare minimum possible and if you are going to go on SNL and not have fun with it then why bother? I am going to assume she went on so she shows that she can be fun loving...however that is not at all how it read to me it read I am going to sit here and take it for the small possibility that it might ever so slightly improve my poll numbers.

    She did more on the show than Obama did when he did the same thing (minor appearances) for the same reason you allege (publicity & poll numbers) during the Democratic Nomination race earlier this year. She did more than Hillary Clinton when Clinton appeared. The only person who did what you are suggesting (going all out) was John McCain when he hosted the entire show a few years ago.

    McCain's a pretty funny guy, though. Most politicians just aren't that funny.

    The best humor usually comes from a pretty dark place, and McCain's too old to hold back. It's one of the things I like about him.

    Well, she wasn't the host and she's running for a very serious job. What did you expect? The SNL people normally work with their guests/hosts for a week. But Gov. Palin has this other thing getting in the way of her sketch comedy career...so, yeah, her role was minimum.

    And if you didn't catch it, she did do a Tina Fey thing. At the end of WU, she said the "have a pleasant tomorrow" line that Tina always ended off with, which Tina did in tribute to Jane Curtain.

    I liked her performance, especially the fact that they can rib her (Alec Baldwin said some hardcore shit next to her!) and she's willing to be a good sport.

    I similarly liked the Al Smith dinner where Obama and McCain were able to get up there and totally get some digs in, but all of which came across as sincere humor and not politically motivated.

    I just really like seeing the human side of things; politics so often puts people in a place where they feel like they can't afford full sincerity, that it's heartwarming to occasionally glimpse their humanity from the constituents' seating.

    Well, it wouldn't cause me to want to vote for her and McCain, and I don't respect many of her beliefs and attitudes, but I will gladly tip my hat to her for being a good sport. She's running for public office, and as such when one does so, one must be prepared to accept the slings and arrows that the public has a right to unleash. She took on the humor, and added some of her own with good grace and fellowship, and while I hope she never gets elected, I would be happy to see her on SNL again. She showed that she can take a "pie in the face" with the best of them!

    Yeah, it was HILARIOUS. Hell, in the beginning when Tina Fey was doing the debate...I didn't know if it was Palin or not. Lol.


    Funniest of all is when the guy let Fey know that the real Palin was there and she said

    "Huh? The real one"...pause..."BYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" and took off! Lmao!!!

    Oh totally, zeebya, I'm not voting for her either. But just like McCain said to Obama at the Al Smith dinner, "While I cannot wish my opponent luck, I do wish him the best."

    That's the kind of spirit that generally goes out the window when campaigns start getting especially challenging, because if you want to win, sadly we're only humans and our baser instincts can be appealed to with slinging mud.

    It's just nice to see people occasionally rise above that. I don't blame either of them for negative campaigning or whatever, I understand why it happens, why the hostility is there, but it's so much more flattering to them when they're able to be genuine and friendly even in the midst of their differences.

    Fable saidlink? Us people outside the US don't benefit from the awesomeness that is SNL


    hah! little do you know that the "Awesomeness of SNL" left SNL about 15 years ago... as you english blokes like to say, its all rubbish. every great while they'll have a decent skip like this fey/palin stuff, but otherwise its garbage... you're not missing anything

    I thought the Tina Fey part as usual was awesome
    and Alec Balwin was hysterical
    but Palin didn't do anything at all in the skits

    One thing in all of this has to be said
    Thank God for SNL The Daily Show and The Colbert Report
    During the last 8 years when the media has been canceled they have shown us what the so called true journalists can't or just wouldn't do

    The Jean K Jean part was funny too. I sent it to my students hoping they would get a laugh.

    I went to the supermarché to buy some Perrier. ZUT ALORS
