Where's the Parody? Fake Sarah Palin is Real Sarah Palin

Here's last night's SNL with Tina Fey reprising her fan request role of Sarah Palin:

Compare with the real Sarah Palin interview by Katie Couric:

Or just watch these clips:

I dunno, y'know, reporters...

The part of the Russian Federation seen from Alaska is the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, which according to its description in Wikipedia, is essentially Alaska. Yes, of course, Alaska was once part of Russia.

More plot drift than a typical episode of The Simpsons.

I would like to use a life line.

Okay, the above one was dubbed over with the South Carolina pageant contestant.

Maybe Governor Palin will surprise everyone on Thursday and do really, really well against Senator Biden (or Biden might do really, really poorly). Of course I'm just being nice and/or sarcastic, but anything is possible in this universe, right? Biden might want to watch his language for broadcast TV purposes, even though cussing is badass...but malarkey?

In any case, kudos to Katie Couric for keeping a straight face (or to the CBS video editor for the straight-faced insert shots), although her eyes say, "WTF are you talking about?" Maybe an enterprising YouTube user can get the Palin shots and intercut it with the American Idol reject auditions, with Simon Cowell openly laughing and Randy Jackson covering his face with a sheet of printer paper.
