Palin wasn’t really on SNL

Ok I admit it. I bought into the hype. I wanted to see how Palin would handle her appearance on SNL. Would she take this chance to pounce on the media, to poke fun at the jokesters that helped bring down her poll numbers? What would she do? What would SNL write?

Well watching the clips I was utterly disappointed. Clearly, Sarah Palin was supposed to be a surprise guest, not a known commodity. SNL did their usual surprise guest thing. While making fun of the guest on stage they appear backstage to set the record straight. The problem is comedy is less funny the second time around and since it had been leaked by Palin herself that she would be on the show, the surprise was largely gone. She delivered no real jokes. Her cold open was little more than refusing to answer questions and saying “Live from New York! It’s Saturday Night!”

The Palin rap sketch featured Palin sitting behind the weekend update desk as Amy Poehler rapped about her and McCain. 

Final Take:

SNL=Funny

Sarah Palin=Bystander.
