SNL relevant once again as election approaches

I'm a fiercely political person but I am trying my absolute best not to bring up such matters in this forum. And that is no easy task over these last few months. I'll continue to keep things as apolitical as possible. But as an avid consumer and follower of pop culture, there's no harm in acknowledging SNL's sudden relevance this election season. As you've probably seen yourself, this resurgence of quality is primarily due to the now weekly Tina Fey appearances as VP-candidate Sarah Palin. In case you missed it, here's last night's VP debate send-up featuring a pitch-perfect Palin and a fine Biden parody, too. Queen Latifah has some impressive comedic chops herself.
