Chevy Chase Slams Sarah Palin's SNL Performance

We have to say, Weekend Update with Sarah Palin got us laughing on Saturday. But SNL alum Chevy Chase was left unimpressed by the whole thing.

He told reporters,

Quite frankly, it’s a big mistake to let her go on. Apparently she cannot improvise herself out of a paper bag! On Weekend Update that was her big chance. Nothing. The management behind McCain’s campaign has been dumb. This has only helped accentuate the problem of his judgment in choosing, in such a cynical way, a candidate like Sarah Palin for vice president. I think the last thing that they would want right about now is to have the rest of America knowing all that… to have her be seen on SNL, certainly never there. If anything, you just want her to be seen just from a distance. I’m sure she’s very bright. But so is the Butterworth woman.”

Wow! No holding back there! Come on Chevy, not even the raising the roof made you crack a smile? At least give Amy Poehler props for that rap song! Check out the video in case you missed it, and tell us what you think!
