Last night Tina Fey reprised her role as Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, and with Amy Poehler as Katie Couric, they recreated the interview that aired on CBS last week.

Feylin noted that on her trip to NYC, "home to the liberal media elite," her family went to "the Central Park and the FAO Schwartz and that goofy evolution museum." She also says, "I had 15 to 20 false alarms where I thought I saw Osama Bin Laden driving a taxi. I was embarrassed to be wrong, but mostly disappointed I wasn't right."

At around minute 3, Feylin is asked about the financial crisis--as a fun comparison, Palin's real answer to Couric is after the jump.

Couric: Why isn't it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? Allow them to spend more, and put more money into the economy, instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

Palin: That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it's got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade -- we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation.
