That's probably it. You're going to hear the Righties claiming they didn't give her much of an opportunity to be funny.

She sucked? She didn't do anything. She was nothing but a prop for the sketch. Don't you have to do something "to suck"?

Oh, and save your time posting that she's a prop for the McCain campaign. Lolarolalrararl.

She is a prop and I think it's likely the McCain campaign wasn't willing to let her do too much in the form of comedy tonight. They've kept her restrained when it comes to anything they don't personally control.

The first skit Tina was dead on funny but Palin was truly boring. I want to say I doubt it was her fault, I suspect it was her handlers overcontrolling things.

I have to agree that it was a missed opportunity. It's a disappointment, after watching how well McCain handled the opportunity for comedy this past week. Palin should have done a mock interview that took off the direction that McCain was going with his monologue.

My God, she's damned if she does, damned if she doesn't. I think the appearance was fine, not great, but fine. She went into the lion's den and didn't get eaten alive. Win/win for her. IMO.

I thought the first skit with Alec Baldwin was quite clever. I wondered if they would do something with him and her acting like Tina. It wasn't particularly funny but it was poignant with the innuendo.

I thought the rap scene was hilarious. She was poking fun at herself and laughing at herself by laughing at the spoof of herself. I thought it would have been funnier if Tina Fey did it but Amy Poehler is hilarious too.

She didn't do anything, but the lines she DID say were pretty striking.

I mean, she actually said "that's not how my press conferences would have gone."

Wow.

Then she gets in front of a fake press conference, and I'm not shitting you, all she says is "live from New York..."

What a shitty appearance. If you can think of a candidate who's done worse on SNL, I'd like to know.

It's a sad day when the "lion's den" for a vice-presidential candidate is SNL.

Other than she looked extremely uncomfortable.

Walking into a group of people who publicly state they hate you is a walking into a lion's den whether they are actors on SNL or down South in a group of the elderly eating lunch.

She did not look uncomfortable rather she looked controlled. Her handlers once again decided it was best to keep her contained even after the woman had to deliver a debate performance against a 26 year veteran watched by one of the largest audiences in history. Their mistake, IMO. She can give as good as she gets but for some reason wasn't allowed to do so on SNL.

Look, she may not be ready for prime time as on the political stage or as VPOTUS but she is a natural on stage. The similarities between her on stage persona and NObama are striking. They both are performers who happen to be excelling on a national political stage. SCARY.

I don't think they "hate" her. She just gives way too much material. And that's still hardly the lion's den.

In the off stage sequence, she looked very uncomfortable and had trouble delivering her lines with an upbeat manner. Very different than her stump speeches.

Are you really linking Palin's oratory skills with that of Obama's?

You, and everyone else, see what you want to see. Folks on Free Republic are claiming SNL was unfair to Sarah Palin. Folks on Democratic Underground claim she bombed. The truth is somewhere in between. In the end though, she neutralizes Tina Fey's impersonation of her because she appeared on the show to participate and laugh at a parody herself.

And, being no big fan of either Palin or NObama I can say they are both cut from the same cloth. They are both slick performers with little real substance. NObama has been on a national stage longer so he's a bit more polished but give Ms. Palin the four years NObama has had since his 2004 debut and she will likely have the same level of polish if not more.

Afterall, I think the teleprompter king would not have been able to deliver the type of performance she did in her debate with Biden.

I agree, though if you're honest with yourself, they really could have done so much more. I don't know which side was restraining...

Palin is not really a slick performer. She only has that appearance because of her supporter's naivete. Perhaps you are right; time will tell.

It was a missed opportunity.

Palin should have walked up behind Fey at the podium wearing a hockey jersey and banging a hockey stick into her palm.

She also should have asked Alec Baldwin what he was doing in the country.

That is exactly what she should have done.

I thought the performance was meh, but I think most politicians should stay away from comedy TV.

It was absolutely a performance. She recited lines she'd been given and diverted the topics to her talking points. She did it with a wink and a smile.

Again, give her four years and she will be as slick as NObama is four years after his 2004 debut.
