WOW, Palin just BOMBED on SNL.

I thought she would at least get one or two laughs, or maybe some applause here and there.

No laughs.  Zero.  She looked pissed off the entire time.  Yikes!

WOW, Palin just BOMBED on SNL.  

Another diary exists with a nice synopsis and some good detail... this is just my "first read" on Palin's much anticipated "performance":

I thought she would at least get one or two laughs, or maybe some applause here and there.  

No laughs.  Zero.  She looked pissed off the entire time.  Yikes!
Tina Fey was her usual hilarious self in her parody of the biggest joke of a VP in history.

Maybe it's a small step forward for the wicked witch of Wasilla since she didn't get roundly BOOed by the crowd like she did at the Flyers game.  (although I could hear a few 'boos' when she stepped up to the podium, but nothing major)

At least Mark Walhberg was funny.  But what does it say for your personality when you get out shined on SNL by Marky Mark?  (not that Mark Walhberg isn't bad ass... he just isn't marketed as a funny guy).

I suppose it's a real tough transition to go from spewing race baiting hate speech and covering up scandals in her home state to trying to be funny on SNL.

I'm sure there is plenty of opportunity for jokes about Palin bombing on SNL and Palin wanting to bomb Iran or the American parts of the United States, etc.  So I look forward to the comments!

UPDATED after Weekend Update piece:

Seriously, is the McCain campaign afraid to let her talk even on fake news shows too?  (other than Fox News)
What was that, 3 or 4 lines she had there?  Of course, she couldn't have done the rap that Amy Poeller did, but she could have had a few jokes in there somewhere, anywhere... what gives?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
