Tina Fey: the donor that got away from Al Franken
StarTribune.com ^ | 4/14/11 | Jeremy Herb

Tina Fey, the former Saturday Night Live writer and creator of the hit show “30 Rock,” had a profanity-laced story to tell Tuesday about Sen. Al Franken’s courtship during the 2008 campaign.

Fey, who is promoting her new book “Bossypants,” told a Philadelphia audience that Franken, a former SNL colleague, wanted her to contribute to his Senate campaign, the Philadelphia Daily News reported. She didn’t donate.

After Franken won the election, Fey said she texted Franken: “See, you didn’t need my $4,000 to win after all.”

Franken shot back a two-word response that began with an F-bomb.

They’re both un-talented hacks. Overrated, unfunny and lefty imbeciles.

"According to Federal Election Commission records, Fey has not made a donation to any candidate before. A call to her book publicist was not immediately returned."

What horsesh!t. Every minute, of every show that she has ever written has been an in-kind contribution to the DNC. The value of her total contribution is probably incalculable.

I’m surprised she didn’t support him. He’s a foul-mouthed pornographer and she’s a foul-mouthed prostitute.

I remember reading during one of the earlier elections that she was a registered Independent, or at least she described herself as an independent (which is probably the funniest thing she has ever actually said or written).

DemocRATs don’t need money to win, just more “found ballots”

Yep! How do you like she wins the Kennedy center Mark Twain prize for humor right after her Sarah Palin act? Yes, Tina Fey is in the same league as Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Bill Cosby, Steve Martin, Jonathan Winters, Carl Reiner, Neil Simon. Yes, no political grandstanding there.

More reason to loathe Al Franken. More reason to think Tina Fey just might be redeemable.

Is this the best she can do to sell her insipid “Bossypants”???? I can’t imagine the profile of somoene who would buy this POS book. What made her think anyone gives a s___t abotu what’s going on in her life, or that Al Franken texted “F-U” to her?

If she really wants to sell this book, she needs to tell the stories about how Franken came into the SNL writing meetings and berated people and tried to get people fired.

Ever the mental case. But it’s Sarah Palin that’s the horrible, disgusting person right Tina?

She’s just trying desperately — too little, too late — to kiss-and-make-up with conservatives. “I didn’t give money to Al Franken.” Wow.

No dice, Tina. (Although this DOES make you less leftist than Ben Stein, who donated quite a bit to Al Franken.)

Al Franken is the most vile slime ever to get kicked out of (elected from) Minnesota.

Really? What the Franken?

Franken you back, there Al.

Mother Franken idiot.

(Is this the F-bomb he used? Probably not. But it works for me!)

He is a deeply unhappy and nasty person. I’ve read that pretty much everyone who has ever worked with him hates his guts. I suspect that Fey shares his politics but loathes him as an individual.

He used the F-word? Will he have to pay a $100,000 fine like Kobe and apologize to the homosexuals?

If not for Palin, nobody would know who this bimbo was.

On election day she probably does it several times!

The title of the book is so corny. I think cockypants would be more fitting for a book written by Tina.
