Skip to comments.Has Tina Fey’s Palin Act Worn Out Its Welcome ?
Posted on 11/10/2010 6:16:24 PM PST by RobinMasters
Paul Farhi of the Washington Post reports on Tina Feys acceptance speech for the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
In her acceptance speech, Fey touched on her best-known bit her Palin imitation and offered some mock hands-across-the-political-divide commentary. The rise of conservative women in politics, she said pointedly, is good for all women, unless you dont want to pay for your own rape kit . . . unless youre a lesbian who wants to get married to your partner of 20 years . . . [or] unless you believe in evolution.
The lines played first to nervous laughter and then to not much laughter at all.
Not a good sign when you bomb at a humor-awards ceremony.

Karl Rove will be among the few remaining fans of Tina Fey’s Palin impression. (Rove thought Tina Fey was Palin, until just recently.)
Oh, good grief. Tina definitely proves that evolution doesn’t always work right.
She should wish she had half the class, beauty, and brains that Sarah Palin has. Tina is doing a horribly worn-out and really not funny parody of a wonderful woman. But then the libtards did that with Reagan and George W. too. Ha Ha. Real funny.
I don't get it...
Here is what Tina Fey really looks like...before Madison Ave. got to her.
Her first TV commercial.
So her deal is she can “cut” her eyes left or right and that is attractive? She’s homely at best and is a wide track (otherwise known as a fata**) , if you have looked at her recent photos.
Talentless hag is her claim to fame. (or lack thereof)
It must suck to be Tina Fey, when no one gives a crap about her and just asks her to do her “Sarah Palin impersonation” Hey Tina, you had no talent then and you have no talent now
Tina Fey is a piece of trash
In the latest “Alaska” commercial, Sarah says, “Hey, I think I can see Russia from here.”
She is one unfunny slut if I ever saw one.
(OK...Mr.Bill DID have his moments....)
It was never about being funny, it was always about trying to harm someone using the power of a national audience.
I can’t stand Tina Fey.
She did sort of look like Palin when made up right tho.
Now when I look back at clips of Fey and her Palin act, it wasn’t very good. She wasn’t even funny.
I don’t think anyone is interested in Fey. Perhaps she could try a Michelle Obama.
She went from looking like madcow to Palin. You’ld think she would worship Sarah for that alone.
GOOD NEWS! I despise Tina Fey and, save for the glasses, she looks nothing like beautiful Sarah Palin.
As you know, it is my wish that Sarah Palin would appear in public without her glasses just to end the career of this vile hag.
“Tina Fey is a piece of trash”
Another September 10th holdover...
Conservatisism brought us Margaret Thatcher and Sarah Palin.
Liberalism brought us Nancy Pelosi and Corrine Brown.
Why any woman thinks liberalism is a good thing is beyond my ability to comprehend.
I believe it comes down to abortion rights for liberal women.
Comedian Rich Little managed it with respect to Richard Nixon. It absolutely can be done, but at the moment it will take a woman of quite a bit more character than Fey displays to manage it. IMHO, of course.
When was it welcome??
Her Heidelberg dueling scar is pretty cool though.
"I don't get it..."
One of the lefty lies about Palin is that to cut the budget as Mayor she required rape victims to pay for their rape kits to save the city money.
It's totally false, along with the lie that she asked the public library to burn certain books, or that Trig is actually Bristol's son (kinda obvious now).
The left has told so many lies about her they are totally unhinged...
The voice and hands of “Mr. Hands” was Vance DeGeneres, the older brother of Ellen.
I’ll start worrying about Sarah Palin when she starts imitating Tina Fey.
And the land shark.
And killer bees.
And "Jane, you ignorant slut."
But it hasn't been funny for over two decades.
Her Palin routine was slightly humorous the very first time. The second time it was stale.
Now it is pathetic.
I watched a movie “Date Night” with my wife, and it was the first time I ever saw her in a movie...I was completely underwhelmed. The movie had about three funny parts in it.
The final lie was when someone told Tina that she was funny.
From the article, Steve Martin says, “every year Washington D.C. becomes a comedy Mecca. And we know how funny Mecca is.”
That is one great look. Is it recent?
Getting her hair done: April, 2010
SNL stopped being funny ever since the late 70’s.
unless you dont want to pay for your own rape kit
I don’t get it...”
I think she means that under Obamacare the taxpayers will be paying for the rape kits, therefore they will be free!/s;)
I have to disagree. The drug “humor” of John Belushi wore very thin by 1978. The best years IMHO, were the Hartman/Carvey years of the 80s and 90s. Sure they were leftist, but not all the time.
...so Ellen is the younger brother?
But the impression has stuck. My business colleague who detests Obama thinks Palin is a dunce. I’ve tried many times with no progress. Any suggestions on how to disabuse him and many, many others who might otherwise like her of that impression?
Have him watch Palin’s Alaska...that program is going to show the real Palin, like when Regan went over the media directly to the people thay saw him for what he was...
I actually pity people I know like that, because they're completely unaware that the Media OWNS them, that they're the Media's b*tch.
You might want to tell your colleague that the danger in allowing the Media to own oneself is that one day, for giggles, they'll put on a full-court propaganda blitz telling you that ALL THE COOL PEOPLE are peeing in their pants, because, well - it's COOL. And that you should pee in your pants, too.
there, fixed it for ya tina
I love my wife, but she is a liberal. She thinks Palin is stupid, and Obama is smart. I’ve asked her for evidence of either, but she just gets mad. I REALLY want to know how a guy who needs a teleprompter to address a kindergarten class could EVER be considered “brilliant”.
It is not that Fey has dwindled it is that Palin has grown. Palin no longer fits the Fey impersonation and therefore it falls on deaf ears...
Sad but true.
A successful Palin/Couric rematch could change many minds. Sarah is now much, much better at being interviewed.
Been there. There is little hope for the indoctrinated, be they Democrats or Republicans. One either learns to live with it or move on. I moved on.
Mean tends to get old, and just makes a person look small, like Tina.
