Videos of Real Sarah Palin on 'Saturday Night Live' and 'Weekend Update'

The Republican Vice President nominee took over the skit with Alec Baldwin, Mark Wahlberg and Tina Fey, and scored some best rating for the show.

Tina Fey may have raised the rating for "Saturday Night Live" with her impersonation of Sarah Palin in recent weeks, but the real senator scored the best rating in 14 years. After a confirmation over the weekend, Palin as herself appeared on the sketch show, joined by Fey, Alec Baldwin and Mark Wahlberg.

The skit, first introduced by the so called representative of Palin, requested the journalists who attended the 'press conference' to be "seriously cool". Fey then came in as Palin, answering some questions from the press such as her view on John McCain's final debate with opponent Barack Obama. Fey said of Obama, "His words are smooth when he's talking, he's like an angel whispering in your ear. He makes John McCain sound like a garbage truck unloading trash at a landfill."

All the while, the real Sarah Palin was on the back stage with "SNL" executive producer Lorne Michaels, joined by Wahlberg and later on, Baldwin. She was there standing as Fey, and addressed by Baldwin as "Tina". Baldwin said to Michaels, "This is the most important election in our nation's history and you want her, our Tina, to go out there and stand with that horrible woman?" When Baldwin was told that he mistook Palin as Tina, he apologized but Palin snapped him with "I must say, your brother Stephen is my favorite Baldwin brother."

Palin then makes an appearance to the 'press conference' while the fake Palin made a hasty exit. Palin closed the skit saying, "I'm not going to take any of your questions. But I wanted to take this opportunity to say, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night."

Later on, Palin also appeared on the "Weekend Update" segment where she sat down with Seth Myers and Amy Poehler, the latter who rapped about the Republican Vice President candidate's weakness on domestic policy among others.

The show absorbed as many as 14 million viewers, the highest since March 12, 1994 when Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan served as the host and Aretha Franklin was featured as the musical guest.
