Quoted from Article:
"The outwardly-shy 38-year-old is now feted by the Washington press corps for providing a valuable satirical counterpoint to the Republican campaign, successfully deconstructing such central pivots of their ticket as Palin’s claim that Alaska’s physical proximity to Alaska makes her an expert on international affairs. …
Her sketches, which are now being quoted at dinner parties across the land, might explain why, in the words of USA Today, political commentators now believe that making voters forget the "Tina Fey Factor" provided Sarah Palin’s chief challenge in the run-up to Thursday’s vice-presidential debate."
score one for satire!!! the noble art.
