Palin Stresses She "Didn't Hear A Word" That The "Hilarious" Tina Fey Said

From CBS News' Scott Conroy:

(GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.) In her second national TV interview since joining the Republican ticket, Sarah Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity about how she made the decision with her family to accept John McCain's offer to be his running mate.

"It was a time of asking the girls to vote on it, anyway," Palin said. "And they voted unanimously, yes. Didn't bother asking my son because, you know, he's going to be off doing his thing anyway, so he wouldn't be so impacted by, at least, the campaign period here."

Palin's 19-year-old Track joined the military on Sept. 11 of last year and is being deployed to Iraq in a Stryker Brigade.

Later in the interview, Hannity asked Palin if she saw Tina's Fey's impression of her on "Saturday Night Live." Palin said that she did see it, but she didn't listen to Fey's stinging satire.

"I watched with the volume all the way down and I thought it was hilarious, she was spot on," Palin said.

"Do you think you could play her one day?" Hannity asked.

"Oh, absolutely, Palin said. "It was hilarious. Again, I didn't hear a word she said, but the visual was spot on."

A day after the "Saturday Night Live" spot aired, Palin Spokesperson Tracey Schmitt told CBS News, "She thought it was quite funny, particularly because she once dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween."

But senior McCain adviser Carly Fiorina called the skit "disrespectful."
