America's Smart Girlfriend Tina Fey Wins Mark Twain Humor Award
The exact opposite person of dimwit scam-artist Sarah Palin is the very talented writer, comic and actress person Tina Fey. Somehow, it was fated that Tina Fey would -- when the nation needed it most -- perform comedy impersonations of the dimwit scam-artist Sarah Palin. Fey was also head writer onSaturday Night Live during the "oh look that old show is funny again" era of 1999-to whenever we quit watching it again, maybe when Bush Junior actually won an election in 2004 and things just weren't funny anymore?
And now, Tina Fey is the youngest person (at 40) to win the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The previous dozen honorees include Legendary Comedians such as George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Steve Martin and let's see who else, oh yeah Bob Newhart, he is awesome.
Here is Fey's famous comedy version of Palin's idiot debate performance from 2008:
Mark Twain died exactly one-hundred years ago this week, so he did not personally choose Tina Fey or any of the other previous winners. We don't know who picks these people, maybe a Ouija Board? Mark Twain was totally into Ouija Boards, we bet! [Kennedy Center Mark Twain Humor Award/Reuters]
