Not Bad

Governor Sarah Palin made an appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend on both the opening as well as Weekend Update. And, well, she didn't do half bad. The episode drew 14 million vieweers, the best showing for “SNL” since 1994.

Palin was able to stand in there and take a few shots from the likes of Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and the entire cast of SNL for that matter. Her performance wasn't groundbreaking; it wasn't Janet Reno Dance Party. But she didn't do poorly. She didn't fumble. And for the McCain camp, that's got to feel like a victory.

"Didn't do half bad"? She didn't do anything. It was atrocious. She got made fun of, to her face, and offered nothing remotely comedic in response. Poor form, Palin; and poor form, SNL, for setting up a paper tiger.
