Lorne Michaels, creator of Saturday Night Live, on his impression of Sarah Palin after his exposure to her during her cameo last weekend:
"I think Palin will continue to be underestimated for a while. I watched the way she connected with people, and she's powerful. Her politics aren't my politics. But you can see that she's a very powerful, very disciplined, incredibly gracious woman. This was her first time out and she's had a huge impact. People connect to her."
Sounds like Mr. Michaels doesn't think Palin is hurting the ticket. The mainstream media must not have gotten to him.
