Sarah Palin Wants Tina Fey to Pay for Her Kids’ Braces

Sarah Palin thinks that she made Tina Fey’s career.

Back in 2008, after John McCain’s ill-advised selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate in that year’s presidential election, the press had a field day with Palin.

She was an easy target, and the joke’s practically wrote themselves. When she appeared in traditional media outlets, as all other candidates had done, she came off as woefully unprepared. She famously could not tell Katie Couric what newspapers she regularly read to keep her informed. Later, she and her running mate accused that Couric softball question of being a sterling example of “gotcha journalism”.

Palin winked and clichéd her way through a debate opposite now-Vice President Joe Biden. The parodies of that went on for months.

When asked by Charlie Rose about her thoughts on the “Bush Doctrine” of preemptive military involvement in the Middle East, Palin did not know what the “Such Doctrine” was and gave a bristly response.

But it was the lampooning of Palin by Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live that put a nail in the coffin of Palin’s political aspirations, and McCain’s campaign. And all Fey did was use mostly Palin’s own words from Couric interviews. It was ridiculous enough on its own.

This “emperor’s new clothes” approach — simply pointing out the obvious fact that Palin was too ignorant to be VP — was comedy gold for Tina Fey. Eventually, she even got John McCain himself involved.

Now Sarah Palin is whining that Fey’s treatment of her had little to do with her losses. And she doesn’t think their SNL‘s commentary is relevant in today’s political climate.

“I think SNL is egotistical if they believe that it was truly an effect on maybe the public debate about who should lead the country in the next four years,” she said.

In fact, Palin thinks Fey owes her for all the money she made off playing her on SNL.

“If I ran into Tina Fey again today, I would say: ‘You need to at least pay for my kids’ braces or something from all the money that you made off of pretending that you’re me! My goodness, you capitalized on that! Can’t you contribute a little bit? Jeez!” Palin said.

Fey’s partner in crime, Amy Poehler, did a bang-up job of lampooning Hillary Clinton, as well. Burt no one from the Hillary camp is calling for money from Poehler.

    This article is full of lies. Research before writing, else you may find yourself guilty of bearing false witness against another. Regarding some in the media ‘s track record:

    Sarah Palin – SP
    Lame Stream Media – LSM

    Death Panel. Media says she is wrong.
    But she is right. SP: 1 – LSM: 0
    Party like it’s 1773. Media says she is wrong.
    But she is right. SP: 2 – LSM: 0
    Blood libel. Media says she is wrong.
    But she is right. SP: 3 – LSM: 0
    Revere warned British too. Media says she is wrong.
    But she is right. SP: 4 – LSM: 0
    Fannie/Freddie too expensive. Media says she is wrong.
    But she is right. SP: 5 – LSM: 0
    With president O, Putin invades Ukraine. Media says she is wrong.
    But she is right. SP: 6 – LSM: 0

    There’s a pattern – she’s right, they’re wrong. I betcha a more researched score would be closer to SP: 20 – LSM: 0. And in each case it follows that the true ‘gaffes’ were made by the media.

      Wow, You are SO funny! You’re kidding. Right? I mean, she’s the most clueless human to ever meet a microphone. And forget about cameras! Dear God, she’s hilarious!! I love how you used the term “Betcha”. That tells me you’re kidding. Right? Please?

        Uh….. nope…. I think her husband wrote that! Lol! You are being very kind by saying she is the most clueless human…. that is just the tip of the iceberg!

        You obviously don’t know Palin.

          Trust me, Bebog doesn’t know SHlT. He’s a drooling leftist troll that keeps trying to say that he’s not a liberal and that he’s open to ideas.

          Like all libs, he is racist, filled with superiority mixed with hate, and desperately pretends to be intelligent.

    Speaking of cashing in and capitalizing on something, Sarah Palin should win the prize. She has done just about anything for money since McCain introduced her to the world. She even uses her children to keep the bucks rolling in. She’s not popular but there seem to be enough people to watch her stupid shows and pay money for her books full of dribble. If her kids need braces, maybe she can make them dance for them.

      Sarah Palin is one of the nicest and most genuine people on the planet. Her presence on McCain’s ticket is the only reason that Obama didn’t capture 75% of the vote in 2008.

      Scum like you will never understand real people. Just keep living in your pitiful world.
