‘Going Rogue’ Inspires Tina Fey to Bring Back Sarah Palin Spoof

November 6, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Sarah Palin’s soon to be released book, “Going Rogue” written at breakneck speed with the help of a ghost writer, is serving as an inspiration for comedian Tina Fey to reprise her hilarious impersonation of the former Governor of Alaska. Fey retired her signature beehive Palin wig, glasses and red business suit, after Palin lost her bid to become Vice President.

But Palin’s new book is sure to provide new comedic material, and Fey may soon make another Saturday Night Live appearance with her twangy Palin voice and over-the top folksy and “mavericky” mannerisms.

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Fey promised that her Sarah Palin wig will soon have to “come out of the closet.

The 30 Rock actress has an uncanny resemblance to Sarah Palin and who can forget her now famous line: “I can see Russia from my house.”

Sarah Palin is currently on a media tour to promote her book, where she plans to limit her interviews to Fox New programs, other conservative outlets and celebrity interviewers, like Oprah Winfrey. “Going Rogue: An American Life,” will hit bookstores on Nov. 17.

On the same day, a spoof of Palin’s book entitled, “Going Rouge: An American Nightmare,” compiled by editors of The Nation magazine, will offer an anthology of essays critical of the former governor, which will show “the real Palin.”

The parody book offers serious essays, as well as comedic offerings, such as Palin’s own convoluted words put in haiku form:

For example, the poem “You Can’t Blink,” is an actual interview given by Palin to ABC News’ Charles Gibson on September 11, 2008:

“You can’t blink.
You have to be wired
In a way of being
So committed to the mission,
The mission that we’re on,
Reform of this country,
And victory in the war,
You can’t blink.
So I didn’t blink.”

    Let me take a wild guess… She will portray her as though she is stupid… How original.

    It would be about as original as making every Obama impersonation a parody of all his non-teleprompter speaking with every other word “uhhhh”. Yeah, gets old fast.

    Can’t wait for Sarah’s book!

    Liberal Hollywood’s ridiculous smear campaign aside, Sarah Palin is exactly what this country needs right now. She has stood up to the cronyism and corruption of the elites on both sides of the aisle her entire career and risen to the top each time.

    She negotiates tough deals with the oil companies but realizes it is in our nations best interest to produce more oil. She didn’t spend her state’s surplus when the times were good – she amassed a $2 billion surplus in anticipation of lean times.

    Sarah Palin has shown the vision this country needs and has the support of the people to take us in a new, responsible and productive direction.
