Apropos Sarah Palin’s latest outburst of speaking in tongues, someone commented that Palin is making Tina Fey’s job too easy. But that, I think, misses the deeper scandal.
I flatly refuse to believe that anyone could do as perfect an impression of anyone else as Tina Fey does of Sarah Palin. And now we see Sarah Palin doing a completely brilliant Tina Fey routine, impromptu.
There’s only one reasonable conclusion to draw from these facts. There is no actual person named Sarah Palin. “Sarah Palin” is just a Tina Fey character, just as the Telephone Lady was a Lily Tomlin character.
Ask yourself: have you ever seen Sarah Palin and Tina Fey on stage together?
I rest my case.
Now in some ways this is bad news: either John McCain was duped the impersonation, or he’s in on the plot. Neither speaks well for his qualifications to be President.
On the other hand, think about it: if the alternative were Sarah Palin, wouldn’t you feel safer with Tina Fey as President?
