So why would SNL help “humanize” this vicious character? What is NBC’s excuse, and/or Lorne Michaels’, for giving her an opportunity, ten days before Election Day, to wink and grin and say “Doggone it!” and “You betcha!” (and also, winningly, to mock herself for doing so)? And how can all the show’s hip regulars, including Tina Fey, put up with this?
The fact is that they shouldn’t have to: Sarah Palin has no place on SNL, and you should let them know.

GOLLY, PALIN TO PLAY HERSELF ON ‘SNL’
By CINDY ADAMS
October 10, 2008
SOCCER moms and Joe Sixpacks, listen up. Get your beer, mooseburgers and caribou dips ready. Sarah Palin is doing “Saturday Night Live.” Not Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin doing “Saturday Night Live.” But the Sarah Herself. She has already OK’d it. She’s booked. It’s confirmed. Done deal. Sketches are being sketched as we speak. She – eyeglasses, haircomb, designer jacket and trunkful of gosh-darns, golly-gees and gol-dangs – will be on “SNL” Saturday night, Oct. 25. Sarah’s rehearsal time has already been penciled in for Friday the 24th. And it’s because she wants to do it.
So, my question is: Does this mean Tina Fey has plans to run for VP?
