The Internet is a Race…

posted by on August 29 at 13:13 PM

…and surely someone has beaten me to this. But I’ve been locked in a sound- and web-proof room all morning. Doesn’t the current governor of Alaska and potential future VP look a hell of a lot like SNL alum Tina Fey?


Hopefully this means that Fey will be guest-starring on SNL through November.

Yup. You lost. Sorry Dan. But you're right.

Quick change the Dem VP vote to Tina Fey. She's hotter, younger, and funnier.

Posted by sil | August 29, 2008 1:18 PM

The same people who tell me what to eat and what to read tell me that Fey person is funny. But she isn't.

Posted by elenchos | August 29, 2008 1:19 PM

Gee Dan, I didn't think you paid attention to that sort of thing.

Posted by sidelined | August 29, 2008 1:19 PM

Thanks for ruining yet another fantasy of mine, Dan. Thanks for that.

Fucking blasphemy.

Well as Liz Lemon said on 30 Rock:

There is an 80% chance in the next election that I will tell all my friends that I'm voting for Barack Obama, but I will secretly vote for John McCain.

Does dan savage have aspergers towards women?

Posted by Bellevue Ave | August 29, 2008 1:22 PM

I think she looks a bit more like Mariska Hargitay, but I did stop to wonder if Tina Fey was still on SNL.

Maybe she could return for a 6-week run through the election? You know, just until Sarah Palin is back in Alaska where she belongs.

"Hopefully this means that Fey will be guest-starring on SNL through November." God I hope so, since 30 Rock doesn't come back until October 30.

And Gawker beat you to the punch a few hours ago.

She looks much more like Megan Mullally as Karen Walker.

Posted by jeffg166 | August 29, 2008 1:26 PM

Oh yah, and besides, at least in the photo a couple posts down where she's in the car, she looks a lot more like this person.

Posted by Matt Fuckin' Hickey | August 29, 2008 1:27 PM

the annoying chick from will & grace, at least when she talks

Then again, there's the new campaign poster.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | August 29, 2008 1:37 PM

the general consensus on palin: what a Liz Lemon/Karen Walker baby would look like...

Posted by michael strangeways | August 29, 2008 1:46 PM

im with lencho on this one, i dont find fey funny at all. i do like her, but i dont find her funny kind of the same thing with sarah silverman.

but here is hoping that she finds some good material in doing old man mccain's vp.

Posted by SeMe | August 29, 2008 1:52 PM

Damn. I just posted this in the VPILF thread, but it's more on-topic here.

She looks exactly like Lane Meyer's mom in Better Off Dead. "It has raisins in it. You like raisins."

Posted by sleestak | August 29, 2008 2:03 PM

I don't know why, but I have a feeling Tina Fey will not take pot shots at Mrs Palin. The whole working mother thing. There are only certain times women savage each other.

Posted by mreddiefather | August 29, 2008 2:08 PM

@14 - ROFLMAO!!

Posted by DanFan | August 29, 2008 2:13 PM

I did a double take when I saw Palin talking on TV. I didn't have my glasses. I had to get up close and squint to make sure it wasn't Fey.

Posted by MidwayPete | August 29, 2008 2:14 PM

pshaw, Tina Fey lookalike or not, what I wanna know is whether she was ever put forward for Miss Buffalo Chip? She could win that, what with leathers she made from some moose or wolf she shot.

Posted by pissy mcslogbot | August 29, 2008 2:18 PM

Sorry, my 70 year old father had you beat on this one by several hours

Check out Sarah Palin's video on Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show last year.

Prior to officially becoming a U.S. citizen, Ferguson had a comedy bit where governors and mayors across the country made him honorary citizens of their states and cities. Palin was one of them and she sent a video. Craig said she has a "naughty librarian" vibe.

Posted by Jennifer | August 29, 2008 2:23 PM

Dan was tied up in his sound-proof/web-proof room because he forgot his safeword again, and Terry is a stickler when it comes to punishment...

Posted by michael strangeways | August 29, 2008 2:32 PM

I find Fey funny and sexy.

Posted by elswinger | August 29, 2008 2:38 PM

Fey is cute, funny, smart, and a dreamboat.

Palin is not.

Oh blah blah about Palin, I want to know what Dan was doing locked away in a sound and web proof room this morning. I hope it was something fun.

Posted by PopTart | August 29, 2008 2:57 PM

Embarrassing as it is, Perez Hilton actually posted that before you.

And, I'm pretty sure he used the same pictures.

Even more embarrassing, though, is that I know that.

Posted by Rachel | August 29, 2008 3:03 PM

I like Tina Fey. She has the boldness of a much younger woman.


Posted by Jason Josephes | August 29, 2008 3:35 PM

They look as much alike as two brunette, white women with glasses can, Dan.

1 pnt.

Posted by morgi | August 29, 2008 4:00 PM

Craig Ferguson said she had a "naughty librarian" vibe? Because all day as I've been seeing photos of her, all I can think is that she looks like an older porn star playing the role of the lusty business executive about to seduce her subordinate.

She has a little bit of that Katherine Harris trying waaay too hard to be sexy thing going on, so she comes across as a little bit desperate for the attention.

And on her, the eyeglasses look totally fake--like not actual prescription eyewear, but part of a the naughty businesswoman/librarian costume.

There's also a strong physical and idealogical link to Peggy Hill...

Posted by michael strangeways | August 29, 2008 4:22 PM

sheesh dan, i said it this morning in the palin post below, and in my blog cabin. i hope SNL can get fey to do it. she will be brilliant, as always.

Posted by kerri harrop | August 29, 2008 5:13 PM

Just so long as it doesn't take Fey past November.
Let's hope no one remembers who the fuck Sarah Palin is this time next year.

Posted by Hypatia | August 29, 2008 6:07 PM

Tina Fey has more experience in government that palin, hell the guy who delivers my newspaper has more experience than she does. Oh...yeh right ... they only wanted a "woman" , no experience necessary, so the guy who delivers my paper need not apply.
