Palin: Tina Fey's impersonation was 'spot on'

VP candidate watched 'SNL' skit with no volume

NEW YORK -- Tina Fey, Sarah Palin saw your "Saturday Night Live" impersonation -- but she didn't hear it.

The Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate told Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity that she watched the "SNL" skit that opened the late-night show's new season last Saturday night.

"I watched it with the volume all the way down," Palin said. "I thought it was hilarious."

Palin said she "didn't hear a word she said but the visual (was) spot on."

The interview runs Wednesday night on Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes," and is the second interview that Palin has done since the end of August when she was picked as John McCain's running mate.

She said that people in Alaska have "for years" said that there's a resemblance between the two.

"In fact, I dressed up as Tina Fey once for Halloween," Palin said. "So we've been doing that before Tina Fey has been doing that."

In other parts of the interview, which will be aired tonight, Palin talks about the news coming out of Wall Street these past few days, the economy in general and her disagreement with McCain on drilling in the Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge.

The second part of the interview airs Thursday.
