I've always thought Tina Fey was lovely. The woman playing Hillary had all the best lines. "... if I had only wanted it more."

I watched SNL last weekend to see how Michael Phelps would do as the host. I found him to be terrible at acting, so he should stick with the swimming. This was great, and Tina Fey looked so real that for a moment Silvi thought that she was really Sarah Palin. (Shhhh, she never watched 30 Rock)

Alice: You're right, I stand corrected. That is the funniest line in the skit.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. 'Nuf said.

On my recent trip back to the Old Country, 30Rock was the only show I watched regularly (besides the NewsHour and the Olympic coverage)... I don't know about Clinton and Pailin, but Tina Fey has certainly proven that women can do it all - producer, writer, star of a show that had me in hysterics every time. Tina Fey for President 2012.

Tina Fey, like Nora Dunn, joins the list of SNL actors who are undervalued by (supposedly enlightened) fans of SNL because of their gender. Anything that gets her more "run" is welcome, in my book, despite the fact that SNL, to me, has been dead for many, many years (probably prior to the dreaded Joe Piscopo, Charles Rocket years).

And the skit itself? Verry funny. In my ideal world, where the (D) party and the (R) party were more cordial and less irrationally strident, I would have enjoyed it with unbridled mirth. But I can see the "smarm and smirk" underneath the characatures, and that detracts from the humor a bit, for me.

Apart from that internal squirm? Very well done; very well-written! Thanks for the larf!
