I feel obligated to share my general love for Tina Fey after having called 30 Rock overrated recently. I did actually watch the rest of the first season, and it did get better (although they eventually did away with the Liz-says-something-hilarious bit in the last ten seconds of the show, which was something I loved about the first few episodes). Anyway, I guess I will reluctantly admit that 30 Rock is a quality comedy. (I still don’t think it’s better than The Office or How I Met Your Mother, though, and I stand by that.)
But! Moving on! I do love Tina Fey and have ever since her days on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update.” That was some quality fake news right there! You know what I love even better? Tina’s Sarah Palin impression! It’s fucking uncanny, y’all. Check it out:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as Sarah Palin and Katie Couric:
Recently, CNN aired both Tina’s parody of the Couric – Palin interview along with a clip from the real interview, showing that SNL had actually used Palin’s own responses word for word:
While I’m no longer sure that what SNL is doing counts as parody (they’re arguably not exaggerating anything, are they?), I am for DAMN sure certain that Sarah Palin is a blood-curdlingly terrifying idiot.
