On the left: Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, John McCain's new running mate. On the right: Tina Fey, comedienne extraordinaire. Anyone else see the resemblance? (OK, then check out this photo. See it now?) Most days I wake up happy that Fey has moved on from Saturday Night Live to the uproarious 30 Rock; today, I wish she'd stuck around SNL long enough to play Palin in the run-up to November's election.
I'm assuming Palin's portrayal will fall to the capable hands of Kristin Wiig instead, but the resemblance got me thinking: What are your favorite SNL political impersonations of all time? Fred Armisen's been in a world of controversy over his Obama impression, but how do you think he's done with it? Personally, I've always been a fan of Darrell Hammond's Bill Clinton (and pretty impressed at the sheer number of Bush administration characters he's played), though Will Ferrell's George W. Bush is pretty classic, too. What are your favorites?
