"I want to make sure she’s holding on to that Sarah outfit. Because she’s gonna need it in the next four years." - Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, offering "a little advice to Tina Fey" at a recent campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio.
Those be fightin' words!
Apparently confident of her chances of being elected Vice President of the United States tomorrow, the Republican contender told her now-infamous Saturday Night Live impersonator not to put away those rimless glasses and updo just yet.
She could have four more years of material, in other words.
Tina Fey, who was chief writer of SNL before leaving to star in 30 Rock, but has become a frequent SNL guest star this fall, had said that she hopes to "retire" her Sarah Palin impersonation for good this month. If you know what she means.
She means she hopes John McCain and Sarah Palin go down. Whether she gets her wish remains to be seen, but the future of late-night comedy depends on it.
