Following popular demand, Tina Fey is back as Sarah Palin. After an internationally appraised impersonation of Gov. Sarah Palin in her first Saturday Night Live sketch as a “spot on” act, Tina Fey is reenacting Gov. Palin’s interview with CBS host Katie Couric. Although the first sketch did receive a certain disapproval, Fey’s audience was demanding an encore.

India's Docmitasha, who is not a fan of Gov. Palin, says :

I laughed so hard in the second one! I love Tina Fey. Too good.
…Palin is enough of a parody. Please, lets not let this joke continue. Like Tina Fey says, she’d like to stop playing her November 5th.

Majaz at The Black Mirror, who is blogging from Pakistan, is no stranger to SNL or Tina Fey:

Like millions, I've been a fan of SNL for a very long time. But this is something that makes me just accept it out loud.

Tina Fey is my hero.

Jessica from Australia praised Fey's impersonation and added words of her own:

Can you really parody something that's already a joke? Well, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler tried their darndest to parody the Katie Couric interview of Sarah Palin on last night's SNL, and they didn't need to stray particularly far from the original source material to create some cringeworthy laughs.

From Canada, John left his readers a comment after watching the sketch:

There are rumours coming through the internet tubes that McCain may try to replace Palin. If he choses Tina Fey, I don’t think anyone would notice.

Maria from Granada, reacted to the clip and left friendly advice for Tina Fey:

I have a huge girlcrush on Tina Fey, so I usually can’t be objective about her, it’s all gold to me. But when I watch her playing Palin, I’m endlessly preoccupied with the question: Is Tina wearing extra hair?

Tina, next time mess up your bangs like Sarah does for big interviews. Also, work on your deer-in-headlights face. Then you’ll be “perfection”.

Ham-the-geek updated his earlier post on the first sketch, commenting that the new one wasn't as funny as he thought of the first one:

I just found out that Tina Fey reprised her role as Sarah Palin in another intro skit just last night. I don't think it was as funny as the first one but judge for yourselves.

Hello Sluggo's blogger, in addition to giving his approval to Fey's performance, turned his attention to something else entirely as it shows in his post:

I was watching Tina Fey’s spot-on Sarah Palin impression from last night’s Saturday Night Live when it occured to me, “Is everyone else as curious about the scar on Tina Fey’s face as I am?” So I simply entered her name as a Google search and let the query suggestion feature answer the question for me.

Beyond the scar issue, there was one thing that really stuck out—66,800 searches for tina fey wikipedia

      How much did McCain pay for the questions? Go for it, they did.

      The time you posted for Kathy Wrabley Says: is wrong:
      It is now 12:05 AM EST, I asked this question about 11:30pm after watching the debate. Palin was reading too much so I felt she was reviewing questions she knew in advance.

      I know there are no secrets in Washington, I’m looking forward to an explanation of Palin reading responses to questions she supposedly didn’t know.

      In memory of an honest American, James Owens.
