Tina Fey displays her uncanny ability to resemble Sarah Palin

September 15th, 2008 // 99 Comments

Tina Fey did the obvious this weekend and portrayed Alaska Governor Sarah Palin during the season premiere of Saturday Night Live. While this sketch lacks the awesomeness of Gina Gershon in a bikini, it does contain a powerful message. And that message is: I’d do things to Tina Fey. Although, technically, that means I’d do things to Sarah Palin, but her refusal to use any form of contraception nullifies such an arrangement. Unless, of course, she lets me “shoot my own moose.” I have no idea what that means, but I bet it’s a great euphemism for “Hey, I don’t remember Jesus saying anything about child support.”

    I’d love to hit Tina Fey and Sarah Palin at the same time (with Bill O’Reilly being forced to watch, of course).

  4. I must say, I think Tina Fey makes a great great Sarah Palin. Now if only someone could portray candidape Obongo with the same comedic skill . . .

    Hey! I know! How about Tay Zonday!

    I quit watching SNL when they became just nasty and not funny. Making fun of how people look is only funny so long. What turned me off is when they made fun of the way the teeth of the woman that had 7 kids looked. I mean didn’t she have enough to deal with having 7 babies in the ICU without having her teeth made fun of nationwide? It made me see SNL for what it was, just one 90 minute long sneer.

  6. I think I just threw up in my mouth

    Big deal. I have a friend auditioning for Letterman today because she can look like her too. I’ve seen her photos of her dressed up and I threw up. In other words, it’s authentic.

    That being said, I would bend her over the podium and pound that sarcastic little ass in a SNL moment.

    That being said, SNL hasn’t been funny in ten years….

    Awesome impersonation! Great skit. Still voting for McCain/Palin!

  10. good skit, talented broad that tina..

  11. Racer X

    “I can see Russia from my house!” Dumbass.

    /The Republicans have lost my vote

  12. Anexio

    #13, Racer X, yeah she’s a dumbass alright. ‘Cause when an actor says something while they are acting like someone else then that means the same thing. It’s as if the real person really said it.

    I bet you think The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is a real news show.

  13. Ted from LA

    Yeah, vote Palin McCain. Who wants to end this 8 year economic run we’ve been on…

  14. Racer X

    #14 That’s an actual quote from Sarah Palin. Plus she had no idea what the Bush Doctrine was. Vice President my ass!

    /McSame & Fakin

  15. Really funny, scary how much she looks like her.

  16. Doc Holiday

    Uh, she CAN see Russia from her house and the Bush doctrine is not a real term. It was something created by the media (Charles K.) to describe the attack of another country BEFORE they attack you instead of after. YOU didn’t know what it was either. Because, well, it doesn’t exist.

  17. Barak Obama

    I think it was pretty funny. The most I have laughed at SNL in over 20 years. You would have to realy hate yourself / America to vote obama. Beside, Palin is only running for VP, not P. I LOVE the way the dem’s are falling all over themselves trying to dig up dirt on her. But obama gets a free pass because he is black. Talk about hypocrosy.

    McCain and Palin have clearly lied about Palin’s record. For example, voters should know that Palin stopped the bridge to nowhere only AFTER Congress stopped the funding, calling it, “pork; and, she redirected the $201 mil Alaska had received for the bridge to other Alaskan projects.

    Also, she only decreased earmark-funding requests AFTER the Bush Administration and Congress advised that administration that severe cutbacks in earmark funding had to be made. Before that, Palin was one of the biggest “pork” spenders, per capita, out there. Palin left the Village of Wasilla with a $22 million dollar budget deficit. This “fiscal reformer” also increased State budget spending by 10-14% last year, alone

  19. It was kind of funny, that’s about all that’s funny about SNL anymore, their political stuff. It’s about the only thing on SNL that I get some yucks out of anymore.

    I think maybe it’s time for SNL to be put out to pasture and take a trip down into those old salt mines of television obscurity.

    But….Tina Fey does do a good Sarah Palin. Actually, she does Sarah Palin better than Sarah Palin.

    As far as I’m concerned politicians and entertainers are fair game for ‘good humor ridicule’, but the average person, making fun of their teeth? Not nice at all.

  20. Alice

    Sarah Palin’s pro-contraception…

  21. someguy


    The Daily Show, is political satire, not news. However, it does a much better job of pointing out the hypocrisies and outright lies of our elected officials than CNN, Fox, MSNBC, et al.

    And Sarah Palin would be a VPILF is she weren’t such a revolting person. I would, however hit Tina Fey. Twice.

  22. GOPleeease

    It is obvious that Sarah Palin is trying more to look like Tina Fey since Fey is much more popular. Palin is horrible.

  23. WTF

    Palin dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween once… life imitates art imitates life. Someday this election is gonna be over…

  24. lloyd johnson

    If you believe you are intelligent, and you want to discuss politics, name calling and ignorant statements only make you and your candidate look stupid.

  25. Right Fury


    You just got my vote….for today’s most retarded post. You and palins kid will be going to the same school.

  26. Hobbes

    #18, so you’re saying that you just defined an idea that doesn’t exist?

    I doubt Monroe referred to the Monroe doctrine as “the Monroe doctrine”, but that’s how it came to be known. Moreover, the “Bush doctrine’ is legitimate political jargon now. You might be surprised how many of our leaders on capital hill get their world news from actual newspapers, journalists, and spin doctors. I know what the Bush doctrine is, YOU know what it is, why doesn’t Sarah Palin? Because she doesn’t pay attention to national and international politics. As governor of Alaska, that’s fine. I don’t fault her for that. As VP? That’s a problem.

    Though I haven’t personally verified her ignorance for myself, so I’m not going to assume she actually admitted something that stupid. Even if she didn’t know, you’d have to be pretty dim to say so.

    The skit was funny though. I’m going to have start watching SNL again.

  27. toolboy

    I think Tina Fey is the shiz. Kind of an easy one for her, but probably the best skit on SNL since The CHRONIC-les of Narnia.

  28. HaHa-Blah

    it’s quite amazing how much these two look alike…it was one hilarious spoof..i wonder what sarah palin thinks?

  29. Anexio

    #16 – Racer X, it’s got to hurt to be as dumb as you are. Gov. Palin CAN see Russia from her house you stupid pencil dick. You’re taking her comment out of context just like you and your other circle jerk buddies at the Democratic Underground constantly do to prop up your pathetic hatred toward anything remotely connected to Pres. Bush.

    What’s next from you Racer X, the WTC was blown up by nukes secretly planted there by Karl Rove and Dick Chaney?

  30. wow, how did they hide scarfaces big gap on her cheek so well?

    as someone who has watched SNL since the 70s, that was truly one of the worst and un-funniest season premiers theyve ever had. The crew is semi-funny, the writers just flat out suck…like WTF was that gay ass olympics thing andy did?

    #16 — The actual transcript of that interview is here:

    A better study in the contrasts between the edited and raw versions here:

    ABC News conveniently edited that interview not to present Sarah Palin as she is, but as they wanted you to see her.

  32. laney

    i hate sarah palin. fucking idiot.

  33. It’s quite amusing that people are using a site such as the Superficial to have a political debate….

  34. Bob

    Wow, who would have thought that a mindless celebrity site would have a bunch of McCain supporters puking bile all over the place? What a shocker!!

  35. johnnyabnormal

    @31. Anexio:

    “Gov. Palin CAN see Russia from her house you stupid pencil dick.”

    No she can’t you idiot. She’s hundreds of miles and a ocean away from Russia. Of course, it’s only the fucking dip-shit McSame/Palin supporters who believe nonsense like this:


  36. combustion8

    tina’s face is so busted.

    cant stand this show anymore, the liberal bias makes it unwatchable.

  37. johnnyabnormal

    @39. combustion8: Good. Read a fucking book.

    Dang! Double post!

  41. Kennedy

    Tina Fey does a hillarious Palin!

    I hope Americans dummy up this year when voting and do not believe all the lies of the Republicans. Get the facts by going to http://www.factcheck.org

    Vote for Obama!

    McCain’s new ad puts another stitch in what we’ve called his pattern of deceit on Obama’s tax plan. This one claims Obama and congressional Democrats plan to push forward “painful tax increases on working American families” and that they will bring about “years of deficits,” “no balanced budgets” and “billions in new government spending.”

    The ad is plain wrong about higher taxes on working families. In fact, Obama’s economic plan would produce a tax cut for the majority of American households, with middle-income earners benefiting most. As for “years of deficits,” exactly the same claim could be made about McCain’s program. It’s unlikely either Obama or McCain would balance the budget, and both are projected to increase the debt by trillions.

    #16: Define the “Bush Doctrine” so I can laugh while I watch you write the long list of things under that banner.

    The Bush Doctrine isn’t a specific single issue policy/principle.

    There is (what’s called) “a Bush Doctrine” for many different issues, so Palin asked which one Charlie Gibson meant. The people who follow politics and government KNOW there are many, Charlie Gibson set her up knowing the American people wouldn’t understand that there are “Bush DoctineS” (not a one).
    Gibson is a partisan hack and you bought right into his bull$hit.
    And by the way… “Bush Doctrine” is a media created label…attributed to at least 6 different issues.

    Look up “the Bush Doctrine” for yourself, genius

  43. Dar

    The actual quote is:
    “They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.”

    She never said she could see it from her own house. Duh!

    #37 — Yeah, it’s all Republicans spewing bile here. Not a single Democrat foaming at the mouth. Yep, those Democrats sure are civilized, poised, and respectful. No name-calling or profanity from them. No sirree, Bob…

  44. jo smo

    I’m voting McCain Palin just so I can watch Tina Faye do more impressions. Faye has her downpat.

    As for Bush policies continuing? As long as the fish show’s me a nip slip every now and again I’m ok.

  45. Yank and Wank - they rhyme for a reason

    Not funny

  46. Jimbo

    Sorry morons. Tins Fey’s version of Sarah Palin’s accent is CRAP.

  47. SB

    the Tina Fey version of Sarah Palin is even hotter than the Sarah Palin version of Sarah Palin! And the Sarah Palin Version of Sarah Palin is hott!!
