Tina Fey: Sarah Palin impression wasn’t ‘mean’ (Now with bonus scar story!)

December 1st, 2008 // 90 Comments

Tina Fey is standing by her Sarah Palin impressions and claims they weren’t mean-spirited. In an interview with Barbara Walters, Tina defends her portrayal of the sassy Alaska governor who either captivated your heart or frightened the living piss out of of you. Hollyscoop reports:

Voted one of Barbara Walters “10 Most Fascinating People of 2008,” Tina told Babs: “I never did feel that we were mean to her. We stuck to a lot of things that she herself had said, and I think there is a very strange double standard because it’s a woman portraying another woman. The jokes we used to do about George W. Bush were that he was an idiot. The jokes were aggressive. No one would ever stop and say, ‘Oh, that seems kind of mean.’ “

“A very strange double standard because it’s a woman.” Oh, boy, here we go. It’s 2008, Tina, not the 1970s. Men and women are completely equal now. In fact, once my secretary brings her sweet tush in here with my coffee, I’ll bring you up to speed.

UPDATE: The AP is reporting Tina Fey’s husband has revealed how she got her scar. Apparently, a stranger walked up to her when she was five and slashed her face while she was playing outside. Jesus Christ! Tina never wanted to talk about it for fear of exploiting the situation. Wow. And she’s absolutely right, because knowing this, Tina Fey could do an impression of me where I’m a transsexual dolphin, and I’d laugh and go “That’s so me! That is sooo me.”

    Soon enough, all we’ll remember of Palin are the Tina Fey skits.

    Palin’s doing the right thing, in her little world – trying frantically to stay in the national spotlight and in the top 10 stories of the media she pretends to hate (but loves, truly madly deeply). But the bottom fell out of oil prices and they’re going to recover very slowly (as slowly as the economy), so her one-trick pony is dead. Sorry, Alaskans, no more windfall tax checks. In fact, it’s time to cut spending (services). How do you like her now?

  2. fact

    “i think obama only won with less than 10% of the popular vote over mccain.”

    52-46 is a solid margin of victory, when neither candidate is the incumbent. Popular vote landslides occur only with popular incumbents. Read, then try again, moron.

    Scarfaced, moronic, unfunny, talentless cunt.

    Trig:Chelsea Clinton as Palin:Tina Fey.

    #5-You pathetic asshole,the religious right and it’s leaders are fascist.Palin would make Hitler look like Mary Poppins if she and her fellow piles of Fundie shit ever gained the majority.

    over 10 million of Obomma’s votes were fraudulent. They were either people voting multiple times, dead people, animals, or automobiles, etc….it’s amazing how 2 million “homeless” people voted in Ohio this year alone, and how convenient was it that the liberal Sec of State of Ohio made it impossible to check on homeless and same day voter registration…..

    Stealing an election isn’t winning it. When a more accurate and cheat-proof voting system is in place, you’ll see a drastic shift from Dems to Republicans in the White House.

    It’s gonna be hilarious when all you sniveling whiney little socialists are gonna actually have to go out and get real jobs…..hopefully it’s sooner than later…

    P.S. What the hell was I thinking when I freed those animals….

  7. nice try, Abe

    “Stealing an election isn’t winning it.”

    Your claims are pretty standard fictions of the bitter right. But when you say “Stealing an election isn’t winning it” I know you’re referring to 2000.

    Tina Fey has a disgustingly smelly pussy. I know this because I went to high school with her. It got around that she was very unkept and had a pussy that smelled like a corpse stuffed with rotten fish guts. She used to fuck herself with anything she could find, cucumbers, potatoes, baseball bats, cans of baked beans, etc… because no guy would go near her. One day she lost a mayonaise jar in her stretched out gnarled pussy, and decided to stop masturbating to pictures of Gilda Radner for a while. During this time her labia, which resembled the hanging folds of slime on Jabba the Hut, actually fused together, sealing off her vagina, which by that time started to resemble the Sarlac. Tina then decided to direct her hatred for all men and women who had successfully fornicated with the opposit sex towards feminist militant liberal comedy. After landing a gig on SNL because the show sucked so bad they’d literally take anyone (see Maya Rudolph), Fey landed a gig doing weekend update with Amy Poehler. While Poehler was totally carrying the show with an occasional pre-programmed liberal activist blurb slipping out of Fey’s piehole, Fey fell vastly in love with Poehler. When Fey learned that Poehler loved the Cock, Fey fell into a deep depression, and in a fit of jealous rage, tried to kill Will Arnett. When the SNL/NBC heads found out about this, they summoned Fey to a meeting, where Fey was unsuccesful in blaming the attack on George W Bush. They decided to fire Fey as she had become a nuissance, even when compared to the other miscreants she had been surrounded by. Before the NBC/SNL honcho’s could shuffle Fey out the door, she donned a gas mask and unleased a temporary paralizing nerve agent into the board room, where Fey systematically took photo’s and video of each executive with their faces buried in Fey’s crotch, which by now resembled Freddy Krueger with a go-tee. Fey then used these photos as leverage to further her failed career, leaving the NBC/SNL corporate execs defenseless against her. More on the story of the miscreant Tina Fey later on in this broadcast…..

    wow.. How did this thread go from tina fey to politics.. oh yeah… Palin…

    There really is no “better” party, there are just the parties… ideaologies change over time… in the mid 1800′s, the democrats published an article saying that blacks and whites should intermarry to create the best americans possible.. however, they credited it to the republicans so that the public opinion would turn against the republicans… However the republicans still won, and Abe Lincoln took office.

    Wow really? You all are STILL pissy about Obama winning? Give it up. He won. He’s going to be YOUR president and will probably help you and your family in some ancillary way since *gasp* he wants to HELP Americans. ALL Americans. Even the extremist nut jobs on either side.

    And Tina Fey’s impression wasn’t mean at all. Tina Fey is extremely famous; way more famous than any other female SNL alum. Saturday Night Live has always been spotty in terms of how funny it is but I personally think the years when she was head writer were good.

    And I am deeply ashamed to live in a country where someone would wish bodily harm or death on someone whose only offense has been to do an impression of someone they don’t particularly like. I don’t like Sarah Palin and I believe her and her husband are horrible excuses for Americans but I don’t wish them physical or mental harm or death.

  12. uhmyeah

    Hey! It’s not just bitter Republicans that have a crush on Sarah Palin! Just because I don’t want her in the White House, doesn’t mean that I don’t want her in my bedroom!

  13. justifiable

    #56 Honestly, Abe, a “more accurate and cheat-proof system”? Like Diebold’s voting machines which they claim are un-tamperable-with and have been shown to be flawed time and again?
    So let me gett his straight … 1) after Diebold’s CEO stated he could deliver Ohio for Bush in 2000 and then claimed he”misspoke” because the voting machine supplier is supposed to be non-partisan, and 2) after Bush’s voting act which allows state’s AGs to purge the voting rolls at their discretion, you’re pissed that the Democrats cheated better than you did this time? Guess you can fool some of the people all of the time…

    Nixon’s Rat Fucker and Plumber legacy is slipping – is there any GOP tradition Dubya hasn’t fucked up?

  14. John McCain

    Did the daughter have our, I mean her baby??

  15. Wow. just wow. you know, Tina did not just escape her 15 minutes of fame. She has a great show, and she was great on SNL back before anyone heard of Palin.
    The Superficial is home to a lot of mean conservatives.
    We are seriously resorting to making up stories about Tina’s pussy in high school? come back to me when your wit is as good as Tina’s (and i am not talking about her Palin impression)

    And liberals do not hate America
    It is sad how politics make us resort to mindless attacks, and I’m talking about politics in general, not just you conservatives reading this.

    @Jane:
    That’s because every Republican has been an idiot.

  17. Jim Jones

    @56:
    Republicans have a lot of balls accusing the Dems of stealing an election, given how the last two ended. Bush wasn’t even a president-elect in 2000; he was appointed by the Supreme Court. So much for your vote counting then. Then in 2004 the CEO of Diebold guarantees to deliver Ohio to Bush, and what a shock, after thoroughly discrediting the security of Diebold’s machines, questionable practices, and fraudulent voting, Ohio did swing Bush’s way. Now you know how the rest of us felt for the last 8 years, the only difference being that it was justified then.

    ’nuff said. Seems as thought many who voted for the messiah of hope and change (actually now should be referred to as Clinton II) are actually . . . . well, stupid and uninformed. But then, who would have thought that? Right?

    God save us from the left wing loons who rule our great country.

  19. King Edward

    Not 4 Obama,

    You can pull up websites on BOTH candidates that show idiots voting for both candidates.

    You’ve got the clueless sheep that followed Obama since they flocked to him like he’s a RockStar… the media had something to do with that.

    Then you’ve got the perceived racists and bigots that Voted for McCain who’s stupid comments turned this election back into a Race issue since they didn’t want a “Muslim terrorist” as president. Not to mention those that blindly followed Sarah Palin and gave her to Obama treatment of a RockStar as well.

    Point is. BOTH SIDES have sheep.

    #33, um ‘go to the doctors we tell you to’? at least you’ll get to go to a doctor. republicans have a fear of socialised medicine (but not, interestingly enough, socialising the losses on the stock market…) we, here in the civilised world, (ie, the world with universal healthcare) haven’t had to socialise the losses but everyone gets to go to the doctor when they are ill… and what’s more… we don’t have to choose between healthcare/medication or FOOD. wake up! they were never representing you.

    Can anyone explain to me why Vanity Fair is relevant? It seems to target yuppies desperate to be elitist.
