Amy Poehler does the ‘Sarah Palin Rap’ on Saturday Night Live [w/ video]
In one of a couple appearances on this week’s Saturday Night Live, Alaska governor and Republican candidate for vice-president, Sarah Palin joined Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler to do a bit on SNL’s mock-news program, Weekend Update.

Among the enviro-themed lyrics were allusions to moose hunting and, of course, oil drilling; “When I see oil it’s drill, baby, drill-a,” sang the enthusiastic Poehler. Watch it below:
