Was Sarah Palin's SNL appearance funny?
Sarah Palin appeared on Saturday Night Live, and there was, yet again, a slight religion reference.
After actor Alec Baldwin pretends to mistake Palin for actress Tina Fey, he says, "I see. Forgive me. I feel I must say this: You are way hotter in person."
Palin replied, "Thank you, and I must say, your brother Stephen is my favorite Baldwin brother." Stephen Baldwin starred in the Usual Suspects and is an outspoken born-again Christian.
Time magazine included a response from Alec Baldwin about his brother's conversion.
How do you feel about your brother Stephen's conversion to Evangelical Christianity?
"If it wasn't political, I probably wouldn't have anything to say. But the Evangelicals who say AIDS is payback for homosexuals - you don't see liberals saying Hurricane Ike is payback for the Bush family living in Texas. I think that my brother really is very devout and very dedicated, and none of that bothers me until it becomes political."
The family I watched it with was not very impressed with her short performance. She was a good sport to bob her head through the rap routine, but she had so few lines to make watching the whole SNL skit worth it.
