SNL - 9/13/08 - Palin and Clinton - Fey and Poehler

In the opening skit of the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, Fey, playing GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and Poehler, portraying Sen. Hillary Clinton, disagreed on just about everything.

"I was so excited when I was told Sen. Clinton and I would be addressing you tonight," Fey told the audience, channeling the Alaskan Governor, wearing a bright red suit and Palin's trademark glasses and speaking in a high-pitched accented lilt.

Poehler replied: "And I was told I'd be addressing you alone."

Poehler's Clinton then set out to define the differences between her and the conservative Alaska governor.

"I believe that diplomacy should be the cornerstone of any foreign policy," she said.

"And I can see Russia from my house," Fey's Palin replied.

Poehler continued, "I believe global warming is caused by man."

"And I believe it's just God huggin' us closer," Fey responded.

"What an amazing time we live in to think that just two years ago, I was a small-town mayor of America's crystal meth capital, and now I am just one heartbeat away from being the President of the United States," Fey chirped.

"It just goes to show that anyone can be President - all you have to do is want it," Fey continued, prompting a cackle from Poehler.

Ya gotta love the video!

Well, it looks like YouTube caved to pressure and have YANKED the video.
They say that it was due to copyright infringement... but I doubt it since the thing is still all over the INTERNET.

Awesome. And aren't they in luck that Tina Fey was around to play Palin?

Palin gets elected will be proof that God hates America.
