Queen Latifah

Set to Grill Sarah Palin

10/3/2008 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Well-placed sources tell TMZ Queen Latifah is getting in the middle of the Sarah Palin/Joe Biden VP debate by portraying last night's moderator, PBS journalist Gwen Ifill, on "SNL" this week.


For the third time this season, we're told Tina Fey will be back, hysterically not answering questions as Palin. You betcha! No word yet on who has been tapped to play Biden.

Thanks to Latifah -- and since "SNL" has no female African-American cast member -- the world is saved from seeing Amy Poehler in black face.

TMZ, please send your "writers" (and I use that term loosely) to basic journalism / writing class. It's bad enough their lame attempt at jokes aren't funny, but their sentence structure is horrendous.

That should be funny.That part about Palin not answering any questions is so true.Mccain's lil gimmick worked for a few weeks,but now we see what palin is really all about: a pretty face,who can't answer basic questions a vice president should be able to,who the Gop thought would sway Hilary voters.Sorry but its just not happening.

BIG DOG    

what people need to remember is that you are voting for the president not the vice president
also i am so sick of hearing who celebrities are backing, that should hold no relevance on who
you vote for be an american and use that little thing on top of your shoulders called a brain
