Sarah Palin: Tina Fey Would Be Nothing Without Me
Raise your hand if you need some comic relief right about now. Oh, all of you? Great, us too! Thankfully, our girl Sarah never, ever disappoints. In a Hollywood Reporter story on the history of Saturday Night Live, Sarah Palin shares her "thoughts" on the crappy tee vee show, and they are just as good as you want them to be.
If I ran into Tina Fey again today, I would say: "You need to at least pay for my kids' braces or something from all the money that you made off of pretending that you're me! My goodness, you capitalized on that! Can't you contribute a little bit? Jeez!"
Which kids' braces would those be, Sarah? Oh, all of 'em, Katie? Although Sarah does have a point. Before she tripped and fell onto the national stage, Tina Whoever was a total nobody, who had definitely NOT become a performer and then head writer on SNL while Sarah was still mayoring the meth capital of Alaska. Good thing Sarah came along when she did (lipstick! ha! we get it!) in 2008 to save Tina Nobody's struggling TV show 29 Pebbles or whatever it was called, who can even remember, it was only on the air for seven years and won 14 dozen awards.
But let's face it, it was only Tina Whatsherface's portrayal of Sarah Palin that FINALLY gave her some success, even though that portrayal was completely inconsequential, and screw you, SNL, for thinking otherwise.
I think SNL is egotistical if they believe that it was truly an effect on maybe the public debate about who should lead the country in the next four years.
Yeah! And take that also too also! No one ever cared about that dumb satire for which Tina What. EVER! received the AP Entertainer of the Year award. And her portrayal definitely had no impact whatsoever, even though everyone still "remembers" Sarah Palin saying "I can see Russia from my house," which she did not actually word-for-word say because it was in fact Tina Starts-with-F who said that line, and not Sarah herself, which goes to show just how much it didn't matter. Besides, Sarah full-on showed them by appearing on SNL and allowing herself to be the butt of a joke she did not get. (Pssst. We actually were laughing at you, not with you, honey.)
Palin: I know that they portrayed me as an idiot, and I hated that, and I wanted to come on the show and counter some of that.
BRB, going to go die of laughter. Then we'll happily imagine walking in front of Sarah, pulling a dollar bill on a fishing line, just to see what happens.
