Miming the former governor's free-associative, occasionally rhyming rhetorical style, on Saturday, Fey demonstrated that her grasp of Palin's folksy idiosyncrasies is still just as strong as when Palin was Sen. John McCain's (R-Arizona) running mate in 2008.
"They stomp on our necks. They say 'Take a chill pill, Jill. What's the big deal?' But we are mad, we've been had, we're not so glad, quote the Lorrax," Fey said, referencing the Dr. Seuss character.
The skit also mocked Palin's politicization of her son's recent arrest on domestic-violence charges, which the former governor attempted to link to President Obama's foreign-policy doctrine.
"We've seen our own children targeted by the police for no reason other than they've committed some crimes," Fey said.
