Saturday Night Live: Tina Fey is Sarah Palin
We all saw it coming. After Sarah Palin was introduced to the country, many remarked at her likeness to SNL comedian Tina Fey. Coincidentally Tina Fey appeared on a 'Life' Magazine cover (2004) with Republican nominee John McCain many years prior to tapping Sarah Palin for VP.
Bloggers have speculated that McCain may have a crush on Tina Fey, not entirely preposterous considering fellow SNL comedian Amy Poehler seemed to think McCain had a crush on her.
In previous SNL episodes, Tina has made it clear she is a supporter of Hillary Clinton and strong women. What people are most interested in seeing is how the resurgent show will paint Sarah Palin over the coming weeks. If the "Saturday Night Live affect" - which has played a surprisingly vital role this election still has some legs.
Update: The reviews are in
- Sarah Palin liked it, and we're reminded she dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween
- McCain Aide Carly Fiorina says it was sexist, whilst HotAir's AllahPundit warns of "reverse racism"
- Aaron Barnhart argues that for people searching for a vessel to damage Palin, Tina Fey isn't the answer
