Read this: Tina Fey on Sarah Palin, Hank Stuever on Sarah Palin's show
A lot of Sarah Palin in today's Style section. It was inevitable: First, there was Tina Fey, launched to zeitgeist heights by her Sarah Palin imitation, receiving the Mark Twain Prize, and of course it came up in her acceptance speach, as she "offered some mock hands-across-the-political-divide commentary," writes Paul Farhi.
The rise of conservative women in politics, [Fey] said pointedly, is good for all women, "unless you don't want to pay for your own rape kit . . . unless you're a lesbian who wants to get married to your partner of 20 years . . . [or] unless you believe in evolution." The lines played first to nervous laughter and then to not much laughter at all.
And Hank Stuever previews "Sarah Palin's Alaska," debuting on TLC, and says it would be baffling it you had no idea who the ex-guv is, and even more baffling since you do: Is it a show about politics? A nature/adventure show? A family-based reality show? "Maybe it is a show about Piper's hopeless cause to get her mother to stop looking at her BlackBerry. ('Sarah!' Piper yells, after several attempts at 'Mom!' It's the only way to get her to look up.)"
