Tina Fey's Mark Twain Prize Acceptance Speech

A much hilarious speech in response to a much deserved honor:

I’ve had such a crush on her for such a while.

    This is very good, vintage Tina (I share Daniel’s crush, big-time), and a couple years old, so I’ve seen it before. But I did not know that PBS cut part of this speech, which you can see here:

    I thought this was very interesting…

    My favorite line from the introduction was, “Watching Tina Fey step into the character of Sarah Palin is like watching Superman … becoming Clark Kent.”

    I’ve had such a crush on her for such a while.

    So, after the Fey playacting Palin, will we see Daniel Finck imitate Rich Lowry?
