Tina Fey Wins Emmy For Portrayal of Sarah Palin

Tina Fey has won an Emmy as guest actress in a comedy series for her portrayal of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live. In accepting the award Fey said, “Mrs. Palin is an inspiration to working mothers everywhere because she bailed on her job right before Fourth of July weekend. You are living my dream. Thank you, Mrs. Palin.”

Several video clips of Tina Fey have been posted in the past. These include Fey and John McCain last November, Fey with Will Ferrel in October, Fey with the real Sarah Palin, Fey portraying Palin in the vice presidential debate, Fey’s second appearance as Palin which included comments from the Katie Couric debate, and Fey’s initial appearance with Amy Poeler who portrayed Hillary Clinton. This is the one which includes the classic lines including “And I can see Russia from my house” and Poeler as Clinton saying, “it is never sexist to question female politicians credentials.  Please ask this one about dinosaurs.  So I invite the media to grow a pair.  And if you can’t, I will lend you mine.”

Despite the humor, there was considerable truth in Fey’s sketches. I would hope that most Americans would have figured out the danger of electing Palin even without Tina Fey, but Fey’s impersonations certainly were helpful. You betcha, this is a well deserved award.

    Gosh, maybe Tina should run for President and Sarah should be given an slot in an NBC comedy. The country would certainly be the winner. Well, almost – comedy on NBC would suffer! At A girl, Tina!
