Tina Fey was awarded the Kennedy Center's Mark Twain Prize for American Humor last night. And here's what she had to say about Sarah Palin:
"And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women—except, of course—those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape 'kit 'n' stuff.' But for everybody else, it's a win-win. Unless you're a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years—whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know—actually, I take it back. The whole thing's a disaster."
PBS viewers didn't get to hear Fey's remarks about Palin—PBS edited them out. Well, that's not entirely true. PBS didn't edit out the part of Fey's acceptance speech where she thanked Palin. PBS says it wasn't political, the show was running long, they "snipped from everyone," blah blah blah.
