Impalin' Palin

SNL's Tina Fey skewered GOP vice-presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin again this week. This time, Fey focuses on Palin's disastrous, neigh-catastrophic interview with Katie Couric. Palin's performance in the interview sparked a mix of disbelief and disgust among newscasters who usually keep their feelings to themselves: CNN's Jack Cafferty said that if the thought of Palin becoming president "doesn't scare the hell out of you, it should," and calls the interview "one of the most pathetic pieces of tape I have ever seen from someone aspiring to one of the highest offices in this country."

Here is a clip from the original interview, followed by SNL's send-up - what's scary is, it's hard to tell which one is the joke.

Update: According to Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post,

"...the worst may be yet to come for Palin; sources say CBS has two more responses on tape that will likely prove embarrassing."

Given what already aired of this interview, it's difficult to imagine what the blooper reel contains - let's hope it sees the light of day.
