Saturday Night Live September 13 - Palin and Clinton Lampooned

Update: September 28 episode videos linked here.

A YouTube clip from Saturday Night Live September 13 featuring Sarah Palin (portrayed by former SNL head writer Tina Fey) and Hillary Clinton (portrayed by SNL regular Amy Poehler). Both actors really nailed the part, as did the writers.

And I can see Russia from my house!

Right after McCain chose Plain, I sort of wondered if it was Tina Fey playing another of her goofy characters. Tina Fey is the dead-on Sarah Palin impressionist for sure.

Likewise, Amy Poehler is one of SNL's greatest performers ever. She portrays characters with so much outrageous satire as well as talent that it will be a huge loss when Poehler leaves SNL after the election in November.

While the current SNL cast has many weaknesses, it still has outstanding writing, and a few great talents like Amy Poehler to count on. She will be very difficult to replace.

MADTV tried something unusual last night as well when Asian American comic Bobby Lee who usually play's Kim Jong-Il and other characters played John McCain. Together with the Obama personation, this cast has had some critical departures and is still good, but just not nearly as masterful as SNL manages to pull off.

SNL's Kristen Wiig is a real babe to look at, and a very good actress, but not really a true comic like the wacky Amy Poehler and hardly able to replace her. Poehler has that real silly look that makes you just know that a really funny and skillful masterful performance masterpiece is coming. What an awesome talent she is. It is great actors like Amy Poehler as well as better writing that have always kept SNL out in front of MADTV for me. But I enjoy both shows. Thank goodness for video recorders as both shows overlap on Saturday night.

BOB:

WHY DO THEY SEE ALL THE WRONG THINGS ABOUT PALINWHEN SHE IS USING A BABY, TO PROMOTE HERSELF. WHY DON'T WE STICK TO ISSUES LIKE BUDGETY, INSURANCE,TAXES,ETC.
