Introduced as "current famous person Sarah Palin," six-months-pregnant Fey, 40, launched into her pitch-perfect impression of the former Alaska governor.

"It's so nice to be back on FOX News, a network that both pays me and shows me the questions ahead of time," Fey gushed as Palin. "I just hope tonight the lamestream media won't twist my words by repeating them verbatim."

Later, moderator Shep Smith (Bill Hader) asked Palin how she was preparing for a possible 2012 presidential run.

"First, I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world's great villains, and I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric!" Fey said. "The most importing thing for people to know is that I'm going to be running for president every four years for the rest of my life. It's my Olympics and I intend to win a whole bunch of silvers!"

Darrell Hammond's Donald Trump was impressed by Palin. "Sarah Palin, I like you. If you want to be my Vice President, all you have to do is sell more chili than NeNe Leakes on a hot summer day in Times Square," Hammond said, referring to Trump's mega-smash reality hit Celebrity Apprentice.
