Sarah Palin made a guest appearance on the October 18, 2008 Saturday Night Live episode that was hosted by Josh Brolin. The Republican Vice Presidential candidate was featured in the open segment and during Weekend Update. Her first sketch had Tina Fey doing her spot on imitation of Palin during a press conference when they went backstage and had Lorne Michaels speaking with Palin talking about Tina imitating her. During their conversation Mark Wahlberg shows up looking for Andy Samberg and Alec Baldwin shows up thinking that Palin is in fact Tina Fey. Her Weekend Update appearance was simple where she just said a couple of words and decided not to do the planned sketch. Amy Poehler took over and did a hilarious rap that even featured a Moose. See both videos on the flip.
