Tina Fey and SNL do it again with VP debate spoof

About these ads

As is becoming the custom every weekend, Tina Fey turns into Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and the ratings take off.

It happened again last night.  But could they top last week's "I'd like to use a lifeline" gag?

Well, the writers proved that another sequel could produce hilarious results anyway.  The late night comedy show poked fun at Palin's performance during Thursday night's debate and took aim at Joe Biden as well.  They even parodied the moderator of the debate, Gwen Ifill.


Eight years ago, SNL coined the term "strategery" when spoofing then-candidate George W. Bush.

Last night, in lampooning the nauseatingly overused term "maverick," they turned it into a verb when Palin (Fey) was asked about climate change.

"Gwen, we don't know if this climate change hoozie-what's-it is man made or if it's just a natural part of the 'End of Days,'" she said.  "But I'm not gonna talk about that. I would like to talk about taxes, because with Barack Obama, you're gonna be paying higher taxes. But not with me and my fellow maverick. We are not afraid to get maverick-y in there and ruffle feathers and not got to allow that. And also, too, the great Ronald Reagan."
