The seemingly inevitable is in fact happening.
Sarah Palin is set to pay a visit to NBC's Saturday Night Live this weekend, gracing the stage which, for the past several weeks, has been pointedly skewering the Republican ticket's vice-presidential hopeful.
NBC isn't confirming the drop-by, but Palin herself confirmed her appearance herself Friday on Neal Boortz's radio show, ET says. Details as to how the governor will be making her big appearance are still hush-hush, even to the star of the evening.
"I don't know what they have lined up for us," Palin said. "I haven't seen the script. I haven't even been hinted at what that script will say."
While she doesn't know how she'll be getting laughs live in New York, Palin does know why she agreed to make an appearance (polls aside). "I just want to be there to show Americans that we'll rise above the political shots we take," she said. "We're in this doing serious business for serious challenges that face the good American people. That's why we're campaigning and working hard ... and we can do that even through a skit or two on Saturday Night Live."
Me, I'd kill to see Palin "play" Tina Fey as a Weekend Update co-anchor. It'd be very meta.
This Saturday's SNL will be hosted by Josh Brolin, who sends up President Bush in the new Oliver Stone movie W. and is expected to do same on Studio 8H.
