Palin Bears Brunt of Jokes in 'SNL' VP Debate Skit

October 5th, 2008 3:49 AM

It was certainly no surprise that NBC's "Saturday Night Live," in its most recent installment, lampooned Thursday's vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin.

However, despite doing a nice job of mocking Biden and host Gwen Ifill -- masterfully played by guest Queen Latifah -- the butt of most of the jokes was cleary Palin who was once again portrayed by Tina Fey (video embedded below the fold, photo courtesy Huffington Post):

Though there were laughs-a-plenty in this skit, the primary target was clearly Palin who was depicted as nothing more than a bumbling village idiot without the slightest grasp of the issues being discussed.

I guess NBC didn't get the memo from CNN that Palin actually spoke at a higher grade level than Biden during this debate.

Go figure.
