Sarah smile.

Tina Fey did show up, as rumored, to launch Saturday Night Live's 2008 season with a scorching impression of Sarah Palin.

WB is thrilled to hear that the mayor of Wasilla Alaska governor had a chance to catch the Fey impression live. ABC News reports: "As comedienne Tina Fey debuted her impression of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, the governor and her staff were watching from 30,000 feet. Palin was on board her campaign jet flying from Reno to Denver as 11:30 PM Eastern rolled around. But the show was available on the Jetblue charter's satellite TV system.

Standing alongside SNL cast member Amy Poehler who was impersonating Hillary Clinton, Fey's Palin extolled her foreign policy expertise in a flat midwestern accent: "I can see Russia from my house!" There were howls of laughter from the sizeable press corps covering Palin's first foray on the campaign trail without her running man as a chaperone.

But, from the front of the plane, silence. The flight attendants assured us Palin and her entourage were watching. What she thought, though, is anybody's guess.

Palin has yet to say so much as hello to the press corps. The campaign is doing its best to keep Palin well away from inquisitive reporters, going so far as to book the press corps into a separate hotel from the candidate."
