Tina Fey 'leaving Earth' if Palin wins
MSNBC ^ | Mon., Oct. 13, 2008

Posted on 10/13/2008 12:20:55 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Actress has had fun with impersonation on ‘SNL,’ but can't do four years

Tina Fey is generating big laughs and big audiences for “Saturday Night Live” with her impersonation of Gov. Sarah Palin, but the actress hopes it doesn't last.

“We're gonna take it week by week. If she wins, I'm done,” Fey tells TV Guide in the Oct. 20 issue. “I can't do that for four years. And by ‘I'm done,’ I mean I'm leaving Earth.”

The “30 Rock” star also said the election season and playing Sen. John McCain's running mate has been a fun and busy time.

“Election time is always good for ('SNL,') and this is a bonkers election,” Fey said. “And that lady is a media star. She is a fascinating person. She's very likable. She's fun to play, and the two bits with Amy (Poehler) — that was super fun.”

Now how do we get that in writing...I’m still waiting for Alec Baldwin and Barbara Streisland to make good on their promises.

Cheez whiz, ding-a-ling, get over yourself! It's not as though you are forced to portray, you can say no after all.

This is just more of the "notice me" junk like we're getting from Madonna -- these dregs hitching their wagons and all.

I didn't take Tina the same way as Baldwin meant when he said he was leaving the country.

Although I admit that I wouldn’t know Tina Fey if she walked up to our front door, I would like to wish her a hardy farewell and good riddance.
Na, na, na, na,
Na, na, na, na,
hey, hey, hey,
Goodbye.

If only all the liberal bottom-feeders who promised to leave if Bush got elected had kept their promise, this nation would be so much better now.

Actually, Fey (who wouldn’t vote for Palin in a billion years) isn’t really being as ass with this particular comment. She’s just saying she doesn’t want to get trapped in the same role for the next four years.

I don’t ever remember seeing a celebrity get so instantly tied to a particular politician as the Palin/Fey thing. Chevy Chase sorta got tied to Gerald Ford, but he didn’t even really impersonate him or anything. He would just be introduced as Ford and then fall down. Typically weak Chevy Chase effort.

Anyway, in this picture, Fey looks a little bit like Palin and Ross Perot combined:

“I didn’t take Tina the same way as Baldwin meant when he said he was leaving the country.”

Same for me. Had to read the whole story. Fey was rather complimentary toward Sarah — “likable, fascinating, fun to play, media star.”

If Tina Fey leaves earth and heads for another planet, she will increase the IQ level of both planets.

OH PLEASE, PLEASE leave the earth, Tina Fey! I may be in the minority, but I have not been able to tolerate looking at or listening to that woman since she came on the scene — well before anything political was ever involved. Can’t explain it, I just don’t like that person at all — a gut reaction, I guess.

Kind of like the little voice that told me back in 2004 during the Dem’s convention that Obama (a speaker) would be a really horrifying force to be reckoned with in short order. Well, I was correct — not that I am happy about it.

She couldn’t hold a candle to Sarah’s professional and personal accomplishments. Everything NBC has been off in my household for over a month now.
