When Saturday Night Live ridiculed Sarah Palin, the Alaska Governor agreed to appear on the program and with remarkable patience gamely endured further partisan abuse, then demonstrated her good sportsmanship by playing along with the gags.

Michael Calderone reports that Keith Olbermann’s reaction to being ribbed was just a little different.
Ben Affleck, whoâ€™s hosting â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€ this week, was rehearsing a skit this afternoon mocking Keith Olbermann when Olbermann himself got past security to watch, according to a source with knowledge of the incident.
A source described the skit as â€œsavage,â€ in portraying Olbermann as a deranged person living at home with his mother. Affleck, said a source, became uneasy with Olbermann in attendance at the 3 p.m., closed-set rehearsal.
But Olbermann, through a spokesman, was complimentary on his first time being mocked on “SNL” â€” a position his MSNBC colleague Chris Matthews has been in over the years.
â€œIâ€™m not Sarah Palin,â€ Olbermann said. â€œI know how valuable it is to me. And itâ€™s funny.”
