OK, this I can’t resist breaking out in vicious laughter over:
As the late-middle-aged couple at the table next to us get up, the male half approaches, grinning: “Excuse me, aren’t you Governor Sarah Palin?” It’s so lame that [the now-permanently typecast Tina] Fey can barely manage a quarter of a fake smile. “Not for, like, three years now,” she says, looking as if she’d like to dive under the table.
The guy has his gag, though, and he’s going to run with it. “I so enjoy watching you on Fox,” he says.
“Thank you, have a nice day,” she replies. As he walks away, she murmurs, “Until the day I die. Until the day I die.”
I mean, Awwww. It’s so cute when Hollywood actors and actresses think that they’re people.
Via Hot Air Headlines, which pretty much quoted the exact same bit. There’s a lesson for Tina, right there: to wit, that the most interesting thing about her is that Ms. Fey once participated in some pretty brutal agitprop against a now-retired politician. And that’s gonna be the defining characteristic of the woman’s career.
Until, indeed, the day she dies.
