Tina Fey twisted her hair to a formal bun and wore a different kind of glasses to resemble Vice President candidate, Sarah Palin. The comedienne returned to the new season of "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday, September 13, parodying the Republican representative alongside her "Baby Mama" co-star Amy Poehler who portrayed Hillary Clinton.

The skit was labeled as a "non-partisan message" that discussed on the issues of sexism in the hype of the presidential election. Poehler as Clinton said, "I believe that diplomacy should be the cornerstone of any foreign policy." Fey then added, "I can see Russia from my home" as a satire to Palin's lack of knowledge in international affairs.

Fey also touched the issue of global warming that Palin has related to her religious belief, saying that global warming is "just God hugging us closer". The real Sarah Palin reportedly had a good laugh of the sketch, speaking through her representative that she watched it on the plane. "She thought it was quite funny, particularly because she once dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween," her spokesperson Tracey Schmitt said.

The NBC show also presented Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps who played multiple characters while his 'mother', played by Poehler, sat among the audience cheering at him.

Of course Hillary Clinton likes Sarah Palin! Palin is largely the reason that Clinton will probably get another shot at the presidency in 2012!

Too bad that NBC Universal pulled the video from YouTube.
