A few different news gossip outlets today are reporting rumors that Sarah Palin might appear on Saturday Night Live.
Some key McCain staffers are content with Palin joking about the “SNL” routines on the campaign trail — as when she scribbled “I’m not Tina Fey” on a supporter’s cell phone [Editor’s note: I have no idea what that means] and said she’d dressed as Fey on Halloween. But others — including the governor herself — think a return punch on the NBC airwaves is what’s needed.
I’m hearing some sort of Palin tweak of Fey’s American Express commercials is in the works.
While next weekend’s ”Saturday Night Live” will be a rerun, it is possible Palin could appear Thursday on the first of NBC’s ”Weekend Update” specials in prime time. [Chicago Sun-Times]
On one hand, it’s always awkward as hell when a politician shows up to pretend they like SNL’s impression of them, especially when it’s clearly motivated by dislike. On the other, the writer calling it a “Palin tweak of Fey” makes it sound pretty sexy. It’s almost as if he purposely used nipular language to get us all a titter. EEEP!!
