"Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska made her point by going on Saturday Night Live. She proved she has a sense of humor at a time when the country is still debating whether to take her seriously as a potential commander in chief...And that was what was so remarkable — and jarring — about her engaging, relaxed performance on SNL.Instead of building credibility, she's going on the celebrity movie-promotion circuit. She is unfit to be president. And the final line of the article "One thing everybody can agree on is that Gov. Sarah Palin is qualified — to someday host her own television show." Ouch.
Usually elected officials like [McCain, Clinton, or Obama] go on the show to disarm voters by showing their lighter side. Ms. Palin has already shown her lighter side to the public. The one thing nobody has accused her of is being too stiff and sober-minded...And yet on the very weekend that former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell endorsed Mr. Obama on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and cited Ms. Palin’s selection as a reason, and Senator McCain told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that she was a “direct counterpoint to the liberal feminist agenda for America,” Ms. Palin joked about her nickname, “Caribou Barbie.”"

Caribou Barbie Jokes and Palin
SNL had Palin herself on the show this past Saturday. Leader of the liberal media elite, the NY Times, had an article discussing her appearance, and it was right on. She's a celebrity, not a politician.
