Sarah Palin dropping by 'SNL' this weekend

John McCain's campaign confirms she'll make appearance

NEW YORK -- She's been parodied to great ratings effect on "Saturday Night Live," but now Sarah Palin is going to be a part of the fun herself.

The McCain campaign confirmed Friday that the GOP vice presidential candidate will appear on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, the Associated Press reported. There were no more details available, and NBC didn't respond to requests for comment.

Saturday's program will be hosted by Josh Brolin, who stars as President Bush in Oliver Stone's "W.," which opens Friday. There's no word whether Tina Fey will reprise her role as Palin, whom she has portrayed three times this season.

It isn't a complete surprise, as "SNL" executive producer Lorne Michaels earlier told the AP that the McCain campaign had contacted the show about Palin appearing in an upcoming "SNL."

NBC declined Friday to confirm that Palin would appear.
