Sarah Palin Welcomes the ‘SNL’ Mockery

Celebuzz / September 15, 2008

Sarah Palin is many things: A MILF. John McMCain’s GOP VP running mate. An expectant grandma to 17-year-old-daughter Bristol Palin’s unexpected miracle. And now a comedian!

On this past weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey performed a now legendary impersonation of the Alaskan governor as a cheery—albeit dimwitted—global-warming-naysaying, gun-happy, religious fanatic.

And what was Sarah’s reaction? According to MSNBC, she laughed.

“She thought it was quite funny, particularly because she once dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween,” Palin spokesperson Tracey Schmitt told CBS.

Oh, the delicious irony. Hopefully those kids who were trick-or-treating all those years ago when Palin’s Fey was doling out the toothpaste and sesame candy snacks are having themselves a chuckle.

It’s all well and good for Fey to distract us from Palin’s shortcomings with satire, but Pam Anderson seems to be taking things more seriously.
