Well, we nailed it. As soon as Sarah Palin was announced as the running mate to McCain, we told everyone that Tina Fey should come onto SNL a few times this season to play Sarah Palin. We were even more sure SNL was planning to do it when...
We noticed that Tina Fey's episode from last season was rerun the Saturday before the season premiere.
Sure enough. The opening of the first episode of the 08-09 season of SNL featured Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin. And she was joined by Hilary Clinton. Why Hilary Clinton? Simple; Amy Poehler's impression of Hilary is hilarious and very popular. They had to get her in before Hilary Clinton falls into obscurity forever (and ever and ever and ever). Add on top of that: Tina and Amy are close friends and love working together.
Check out the hilarious opening duelogue (isn't that what the word ought to be?) with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler:

Oh, wow. They slam Fred Armisen's Obama impression. I thought it was well liked.
Check out the transcript for this skit:

Lorne needs to go grab Tina Fey right now, and get her to do cameo guest spots on SNL this season.
Tina needs to play Sarah Palin, the new Vice Presidential nominee for the Republicans.
More about Sarah Palin:
Tina Fey looks exactly like her!!!
Of course, I'm sure they'll dress Amy Poehler up and have her give a go at Sarah, but Tina is a perfect match for Sarah Palin.

[SNIP] They deleted it.
So, what is this doing on a blog about Andy Samberg? Well, I don't have a blog about Tina Fey so back off!!!!!
How come nobody selects a vice presidential condidate who is male, young, Jewish, and sports a white-boy fro? =^)
