Palin Bears Brunt of Jokes in 'SNL' VP Debate Skit

It was certainly no surprise that NBC's "Saturday Night Live," in its most recent installment, lampooned Thursday's vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin.

However, despite doing a nice job of mocking Biden and host Gwen Ifill -- masterfully played by guest Queen Latifah -- the butt of most of the jokes was cleary Palin who was once again portrayed by Tina Fey (video embedded below the fold, photo courtesy Huffington Post):

Though there were laughs-a-plenty in this skit, the primary target was clearly Palin who was depicted as nothing more than a bumbling village idiot without the slightest grasp of the issues being discussed.

I guess NBC didn't get the memo from CNN that Palin actually spoke at a higher grade level than Biden during this debate.

Go figure.
