Read this: Tina Fey on Sarah Palin, Hank Stuever on Sarah Palin's show

By The Reliable Source

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.)"

Never heard of Hank Stuever, and Tina Fey is long past her shelf-life.

Tina Fey has milked that impression like nothing I have ever witnessed. I suppose next she'll get a Nobel PP for illuminating what an evil, idiotic person Sarah Palin is. BTW, can't these people just do their 'look-at-me' thing without constantly spouting their single-minded, left-leaning political diatribe? Yes Hollywood, we get it! You want the USA to be Europe II! Please just make your little films and shut the hell up and STOP CRAMMING YOUR IDEOLOGY DOWN OUR THROATS!
