Fey plays Palin on SNL's opener
I tried to watch SNL last night, so I could see the much-hyped season premiere hosted by Michael Phelps and the much-rumored return of Tina Fey to play Sarah Palin. I missed the first five minutes, so apparently I missed the Fey/Palin part, and I struggled through another twenty or thirty minutes, but most of SNL is just sooooo inane that I couldn't bear it. (Although, I did enjoy the Jar Glove skit. I've often noted how those mini-infomercials take a simple household task and make it look like a ridiculously complicated feat of physical and intellectual and emotional strength.)
Anyway, I checked out YouTube for the Fey/Palin skit, and although there were approximately 8 billion of them posted, they had all been disabled for copyright infringement. For better quality and legal viewing that won't be disabled, see the clip above embedded legally from the nbc.com Web site.
