Well Tina Fey and Saturday Night Live did it again last night, providing the humor to “Election 2008″ with a skit of last week’s VP debate between Governor Sarah Palin and Senator Joe Biden. They had a little help from Queen Latifa who played the moderator, Gwen Ifill. Watch the video after the jump!
Tina Fey returned to “Saturday Night Live” again as Governor Sarah Palin. SNL’s parody this week was of the recent vice presidential debate.
Her debate mate or “Senator Joe Biden,” was played by “SNL” cast member Jason Sudeikis. Here are a couple of great lines from the skit:
“May I say, up close, your hair plugs don’t look nearly as bad as everyone says,” Fey’s Palin told Sudeikis’ Biden.
Fey’s Palin also said “While Senator Biden has been in Washington all these years, I’ve been with regular people — hockey moms and Joe six packs. And I’d also like to give a shout out to the third graders of Gladys Woods Elementary, who were so helpful to me in my debate prep.”
The debate skit drew huge laughs at the end when the Queen Latifa’s “moderator” asked Fey’s Palin to give a closing statement. “Are we not doing the talent portion?” Fey asks, and then begins playing a flute. That was a reference to Sarah Palin being runner-up in the 1984 Miss Alaska beauty pageant.
