As predicted, last night on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, alum Tina Fey returned to play Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. The show-opener featured Fey with a pregnant (good thing for that podium!) Amy Poehler playing Hillary Clinton as the two addressed the “ugly role” of sexism in the race. Fey’s impersonation was spot-on, even getting Palin’s Alaskan twang down perfectly, especially when she confronts the issue of global warming, saying “I believe it’s just God huggin’ us closer.” Watch the full opening above.
