This weekend Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live. During the program’s “Weekend Update” segment Amy Poehler performed a rap about John McCain’s “creepy” smile, his campaign’s chorus line of “drill baby drill,” and the GOP’s dogged attempts to link Barack Obama to William Ayers. Inexplicably, Palin said very little in the skit, nodding her head and dancing in her chair as the SNL crew roasted her campaign and “Caribou Barbie” persona.
