Tina Fey As Palin: 'We Finally Vanquished One of the World's Great Villains - Katie Couric'

NBC's Tina Fey guest-hosted "Saturday Night Live" last evening, and viewers could hardly be surprised her network took the opportunity to once again use her to bash former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

In a mock Republican presidential candidates debate, before depicting Palin as an idiot that doesn't fully understand English, Fey did manage to take a humorous swipe at the soon to be exiting CBS "Evening News" host saying, "I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world's great villains, and I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric" (video follows with partial transcript):

TINA FEY AS SARAH PALIN: Hi there. You know, it's just so great to be back on Fox News, a network that both pays me and shows me the questions ahead of time. And I just hope that tonight the lamestream media won't twist my words by repeating them verbatim. […]

FEY: Well, first, I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world's great villains, and I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric. As for boning up on experience and policy, I'm planning a trip to the Middle East where I will be filming a cameo in "Hangover 3," the third hangover. The fellas go to a bar, and I'm there. I also recently purchased Rosetta Stone English. But the important thing for people to know is that I'm going to be running for president every four years for the rest of my life. It's my Olympics, and I intend to win a whole bunch of silvers.
