Sarah Palin is trying some self-deprecating humor to stay above some withering parodies on "Saturday Night Live," featuring Tina Fey's dead-on impersonation of her.
The Republican vice presidential nominee told voters in Clearwater, Fla., this morning that she had some not-so-great moments during a series of interviews with "the mainstream media." Her flubs with Katie Couric of CBS became part of a sketch two Saturday nights ago, and this past Saturday featured Palin's debate last week with Democratic rival Joe Biden.
"I was just trying to give Tina Fey more material," Palin joked. "....Job security for SNL characters."
