(Newser) – Tina Fey ushered in the new Saturday Night Live season last night with her much-anticipated Sarah Palin impersonation, sharing the opening skit with Amy Poehler’s Hillary Clinton in a “public service announcement” deriding the media’s sexist coverage of the presidential campaign. The sketch also skewered Palin’s views on global warming (it’s “just God hugging us closer”) and her lack of experience in international affairs, reports People.

Fey’s parody was so spot-on that it flagged a few Palin quirks blogger Roger Calin said he hadn't noticed earlier. “From that strange Northern accent to the way she looked out of the side of her eyes to that weird thing she does with her mouth, she was more Palin than Palin," he writes.
