(Video) Tina Fey’s Palin: ‘Are You Smarter Than a Half-Term Governor?’
April 11, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Tina Fey’s reprisal of her hilarious parody of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, was well hilarious. Dressed in a form-fitting black leather jacket, mocking the jacket worn by Palin at a recent McCain rally, Fey introduced the “Sarah Palin Network,” providing fans with “all Sarah all the time.” The network proved to be a perfect vehicle in which to poke fun at Republicans, tea parties, Palin’s anti-intellectualism, her death panels lie and her own family with the game show, “Alaskanence a show about a single woman who doesn’t believe in sex before marriage who is struggling to raise her three children.”
Fey as Palin, introduced the idea behind the Sarah Palin Network, as the “next logical step,” after winning a “silver medal” in last year’s Vice Presidential contest. Since the election said Fey, Palin has been connecting with regular folks, such as “protesters dressed like Paul Revere that they are so overweight they picket from folding chairs.”
The Sarah Palin Network has game shows, such as “Tea Party Wheel of Fortune,” with the winning puzzle misspelled: “Obamar is a terrist.” And the show, “Are you Smarter Than a Half-Term Governor?” “I think you’ll be surprised by the answer, I know I was,” quipped Fey.
The show, “My Daughter Only Sprained Her Ankle You Can’t be Seriously Thinking of Euthanizing Her,” mocked Palin’s fearmongering and death panel nonsense. That one has a “hidden message, said Fey, but not all of the shows are “fear-based.”
Fey then mocked Palin’s famously disastrous interview with CBS’s Katie Couric, in which she struggled to name a few newspapers and magazines she read to stay informed. The show, called “Hey Journalist, I Gotcha,” depicted Fey as Palin re-editing the interview to make it seem like Couric was “woefully unprepared.”
