Tina Fey Introduces The Sarah Palin Network

by at . Comments

Barack Obama wasn't a big fan of Sarah Palin's uninformed criticism of his nuclear arms treaty with Russia this week.

But at least the President, along with all rational human beings, can take solace in Palin's existence for one reason only: it's enabled Tina Fey to deliver the best satire television has seen in years.

The actress was at it again last night, impersonating the former Alaskan Governor (and current professional, paid speaker of BS) on Saturday Night Live. Fey introduced viewers to The Sarah Palin Network, which is comprised of the following programs:

  • Are You Smarter Than a Half-term Governor?
  • Tea Party Wheel of Fortune (Example of a puzzle: Obama is a Terrist)
  • Hey, Journalist, I Gotcha! (Where "I re-edit my interviews with journalists to make it look like they were the ones that were woefully unprepared.")
  • Man in a Helicopter with a Sniper Rifle vs. Wild

It takes a lot to upstage Justin Bieber on the show, but Fey did it with this great skit. Watch below.

Man, how easy is it to make a living trying to tear other people down ? I used to like Tina Fey, but she has obviously run out of original ideas to try to be entertaining. So sad.

I agree that SNL isn't at it's best but I do like Tina Fey's inpersonations of Palin. It always makes Palin look like what she is, an idiot. Thanks Tina Fey. I didn't believe there was anyone stupid enough to be for Sarah Palin until I read some of these posts.

Hey, Mr. Tinafeysucks (is that an Eastern European name?) -
Are you suggesting that Tina Fey's going to hurt her own ELECTION chances in November? You do realize that she's not a politician; that she just plays one on TV?
And who's this "Tina Douchebag" of whom you speak? I hope you didn't just brainlessly misspell 'Fey' like that, 'cause that wouldn't make any sense since, after years of Tina Fey's success as both the head writer on SNL as well as the series creator (and star) of '30 Rock', to say that she's never been funny would really make you look stupid. OH! You must be a tea party protester!

That's it Tina, keep making fun of Tea Party protestors as stupid. That'ss go over real well in November. Oh, and the next time Tina Douchebag does or says something funny will be the first time.

SNL SUCKS. THE SARAH PALIN PART WAS THE ONLY HALF DECENT PART OF THE SHOW. SNL NEEDS TO GET SOME REAL TALENT IN THERE...THE CAST AND WRITERS SUCK.
