The opening sketch also featured a surprise visit by Alec Baldwin, Fey's "30 Rock" co-star Alec Baldwin, who mistook Palin for Fey, and tried to convince Michaels not to let Fey appear on the show with the governor. He snapped his fingers, trying to remember the nickname some had given Palin.
SNL's regular Tina Fey has made quite a splash imitating the Alaska governor. When asked to be on the show with her, Palin said this:
"I love her, she's a hoot and she's so talented," Palin said, according to the AP."It would be fun to meet her, imitate her and keep on giving her new material."
To me it sounds like this demonstrates a level of class that belies some of the attention Sarah Palin has received in the liberal press. But I didn't see the show. What's your opinion? Was it a genuine expression of good sportsmanship? Or was it a political attempt to win back some lost ground?
