Sarah Palin to Spoof Tina Fey Amex Commercial on SNL

Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin is going to be on SNL this weekend. She’s going to spoof Tina Fey‘s Amex commercial with Martin Scorsese.

Tina Fey is brilliant. Funny. Smart. Talented. Sarah Palin reads at a third grade level. Our suggestion for a title: Pearls Before Swine…With Lipstick.

UPDATE: It’s not the Scorsese spot – it’s the other Tina Fey Amex spot. The one with the flute. That one.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Contrary to other reports, the episode will not be on this Thurs. It will air the 18th, which is the next live show.
