SNL: Joe Biden vs. Sarah Palin Debate Flashback
This week, Vice President Joe Biden gets his one and only shot at Paul Ryan in a debate that's taken on far more importance after last week's debacle. Paul Ryan is a very different animal than Sarah Palin and it would be hard for his expectations to be any lower than hers were back in 2008. Palin's folksy charm carried her through, but ultimately Joe Biden looked like the more serious choice. Perhaps more memorable for most people than the debate itself was the SNL parody that followed. Tina Fey's Palin appeared in two sketches before this one (both times alongside Amy Poehler, first as Hillary Clinton, then as Katie Couric). But this was the first time Jason Sudeikis' spot-on Biden came fully into view.
