Palin to Exact Comic Revenge on ‘SNL’?
Posted on Oct 6, 2008
The McCain-Palin campaign team might soon borrow a page from the celebrity crisis management handbook (see Chap. 11: Poke Fun at Yourself on a Late-Night Comedy Show), if the rumor that Sarah Palin is considering an appearance alongside her “Saturday Night Live” doppelgänger Tina Fey comes true before the Nov. 4 election.
Bill Zwecker in the Chicago Sun-Times (via Defamer):
It’s looking more and more likely that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will appear on “Saturday Night Live”—to have some fun with Tina Fey.
As the comedian’s impressions of the GOP vice presidential candidate draw laughs from Republicans and Democrats alike, a top honcho from the John McCain campaign tells me there’s a debate going on about how to respond.
