tina_louise.thumbnail.jpgAccording to Perez Hilton, Sarah Palin is once again rumored to be appearing on Saturday Night Live, supposedly doing a take off of Tina Fey’s American Express ad.

But I keep thinking about the  episode of Gillian’s Island where drab, dull Eva Grubb comes to the island, gets a make over and suddenly is a dead ringer for the voluptuous actress Ginger. It didn’t end well.

Or  Lifetime Channel Original Movie:

Palin bops Fey on the head and takes her place as a successfull  actress/writer, while the injured amnesiac Fey– now mistaken for an injured amnesiac Gov GILF–is forced off the ticket and back to the Alaskan outback. Todd and the entire McCain camp are part of the sinister plot. Gradually her memory returns and the crafty actress character–in order to restore America to greatness and reveal the evil machinations–makes a bid for the Presidency, much to the dismay of her nefarious handlers. Meanwhile the evil politico-turned-actress has tried to instill her totalitarian views into pop culture and failed miserably. And of course, there’s a chase in a parking lot and cat fight.

In a speech yesterday Palin said her gaffes were designed to "provide job security to SNL writers." Explains Gov GILF:

 Evidently, there’s some interest in what I’ve been readin’ lately, and I think that this comes from — it’s a result of a less than successful interview I had recently with the, kind of, mainstream media.  You know, in response to critics after that interview what I should have told them was ‘I was just tryin’ to keep Tina Fey in business — just givin’ her more information.’
