Tina Fey & Sarah Palin - Together At Last?
Presumably not one to look a gift horse in the mouth (unless she's shot it), it's being reported that Sarah Palin will in fact make a guest appearance on "SNL" on October 25th.
The rumor is that Palin is going to grace the Saturday Night Live stage in all her folksy glory to attempt the mathematically impossible: impersonating Tina Fey.
(When asked by a reporter if Palin would, in fact, want to impersonate Fey, her response was: "I would love to. I love her. She's a hoot and she's so talented and it would be fun to either imitate her or keep on giving her more material and keep her in business.")
I'm on the fence about how I feel about this...
Not being a Palin fan, and being a card-carrying Fey fan, I find it nearly impossible to believe that it will be funny. It will be bizarre for sure: some sort of cosmic convergence where the world's funniest woman gets roasted by the world's most overrated, albeit most famous, woman.
So instead of impersonating Tina Fey (hey, maybe she could wear that Halloween costume she was talking about?), if she must be on the show, here's what they should do. Are you listening Lorne?
Here goes: Swept up in a perfect storm of populism, pitch-perfect sarcasm, and feminism, the nation votes Tina Fey and Sarah Palin into office in an unprecedented write-in campaign. Being women, they take turns being Madame President and Madame Veep (Veep days = spa days).
They embark on a world-wide tour of diplomacy, and find that by dressing alike, the male leaders of the world find them absolutely irresistible. Their Wonder-Bra Twin powers turn the toughest heads of state into mush: Ahmadinejad can't resist Palin's winky eye combined with Fey's "blarrrgh", while Kim Jong-II is hypnotized by the glare off the two ladies glasses. World peace follows, at least, until the First Dude effs it up in a snow-mobile accident with Russian President Medvedev.
Tell us: if Palin does appear on SNL, what do you think she should do? And don't say a skit based on the Maverick drinking game: she'd love that too much.
