Carly Fiorina, a top McCain aide, has called Tina Fey's portrayal of Sarah Palin on SNL "sexist."
"The portrait was very dismissive of the substance of Sarah Palin, and so in that sense, they were defining Hillary Clinton as very substantive, and Sarah Palin as totally superficial," Fiorina said. "I think that continues the line of argument that is disrespectful in the extreme, and yes, I would say, sexist in the sense that just because Sarah Palin has different views than Hillary Clinton does not mean she lacks substance."
Speaking of Hillary Clinton, Amy Poehler will be leaving SNL later this fall.
