This is a pretty funny clip from Saturday Night Live. It's a funny summary of the surprise pick of Gov. Palin looking like she--rather than Hillary--could be the first women elected nationally. Enjoy:

I didn't catch this skit on Saturday night, so saw it mentioned in the news first. They were describing it as a huge blow to Palin's credibility. I had no idea what to expect. I finally saw it on YouTube and it seemed like a very, very funny skit mocking both sides.
But, Hillary isn't running for anything. Then I saw Palin making a speech on TV this morning and all I could think about was how funny Tina Fey was. So, maybe these things do have more political influence than we realise.

They influence things. One time when Gore was making a baffoon of himself in a debate with George Bush, SNL mocked him the next Saturday. Gore's team taped it and made Gore watch SNL to prep for his next debate!!
Art imitating life/life imitating art...
I doubt, however, that SNL will be a "blow" to Palin. Those basing their political views on comedy skits rarely vote, and vote in such small numbers that they can't turn an election. More likely it's wishful thinking by the MSM.
