Sarah Palin reportedly set for a turn on 'Saturday Night Live'

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and comedian Tina Fey of Saturday Night Live fameSpeculation has been rampant that "Saturday Night Live" -- already a "must-see" in the political world because of Tina Fey's spot-on caricature of Sarah Palin -- soon will avail itself of the real thing.

According to one of the doyennes of the nation's corps of gossip columnists, Cindy Adams of the New York Post, it's a "done deal."

Adams writes that Palin -- who in her public comments has reacted good-naturedly to Fey's takeoff of her -- is "booked" and "confirmed" for an appearance on SNL's Oct. 25 show (a mere 10 days before the nation's big vote).

No word on whether the candidate and the comedienne will share the stage together. But one can imagine an inspired minuet between the two.

By the way, that's Palin at left, Fey at right.
