Who can forget comedian Tina Fey's iconic representation of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live?

It was one of the highlights of the 2008 presidential campaign and a role that earned Fey an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series in 2009. Fey also parodied Palin's one-on-one interview with CBS news anchor Katie Couric and Palin's performance in the vice presidential debate against Joe Biden.

On Monday night, comedian David Letterman said on the Late Show that Christine O'Donnell looks an awful like Sarah Palin, "You know what that means, more work for Tina Fey! That'll be exciting."

Letterman isn't the only one making the Fey/Palin/O'Donnell comparison. Stick a pair of glasses on O'Donnell, and well, the result is rather uncanny. Check out The Examiner's gallery of Palin and O'Donnell side by side.
