Tina Fey, Meet Sarah Palin as... Tina Fey

From Popeater

Watch your back, Tina Fey. Your doppelganger up there in Alaska is eyeing a chance to counterpunch all those barb-filled jokes in an upcoming "Saturday Night Live" appearance, sources tell the Chicago Sun-Times.

After three buzz worthy "SNL" skits that at times turned her own words into the punchline, VP hopeful Sarah Palin could appear on the late-night show in the coming weeks to turn the tables and mock her tormentor in a spoof on Fey's American Express commercials, Sun-Times columnist Bill Zwecker is reporting.

This Saturday's show is a rerun, but on Thursday NBC will air the first of its "Weekend Update" specials in prime time. The next original "SNL'' show will be broadcast Oct. 18.

Although her impression has been a big hit with pundits and viewers, Fey has expressed her desire to drop the character as soon as possible.

"I want to be done playing this lady Nov. 5," she said at last month's Emmy Awards. "So, if anybody can help me be done playing this lady Nov. 5, that would be good for me."

This should be fun, yeah?
Let's hope it happens!
