Video: Palin Plays Self on Saturday Night

Palin was hilarious last night on SNL and here are the videos. Just click here and here.

Frankly, this was a great idea for the campaign, but it is clear that they played it very conservatively. Palin had surprisingly few lines, though we seemed quite relaxed. The campaign saw how popular McCain’s appearance at last week’s roast at the Alfred E. Smith annual dinner appeared. Such appearances can humanize the candidate. Yet, it is also clear that the campaign saw the advantage but feared anything that would confirm stereotypes for Palin. I have not counted the speaking lines but they appear fewer than ten.
