Tina Fey as Sarah Palin, better than the real thing

One thing that Mexicans don't do so well: spoofing candidates. I don't think I have seen any TV show mock any Mexican public figure as well as Saturday Night Live does with anyone important.
The first video of Tina Fey as Sarah Palin was hilarious, but this goes straight to the point: Palin seems to be LOST when she talks with the media.
Here, the SNL video:

Hi, Miz:

First, thank you for visiting this blog, :) I know you have your own, and I imagine (been so prolific as I see you are) it's hard to find time to visit other spaces.

You are right, I was too brief, and yes, there are various situations I think make Mexicans less willing to mock politicians.

I don't believe in US it's too much the way you talk about people who run the country. It's a way to let them know they are being watched and they are working FOR people, not for their own purposes as Mexican politicians often do.

I am going to write a little more in the same post about why in Mexico they treat differently politics in general.
