When Tina Fey recently went to visit “Inside the Actors Studio,” it wasn’t the “Admission” star that James Lipton wanted to interview, but rather her impression of former Governor Sarah Palin. Being the good sport that she is, Fey agreed to go along with Lipton’s game and gave her best portrayal of the character she created for the 2008 presidential election.
When Lipton asks her what he should call Palin since she never completed her term as governor, Fey improvizes, “I don’t know. You could call me a half-Governor or you could call me a Maverick At Large. ‘Gov’ would be fine by me too.”
As for her views on gun laws, Fey-Palin quips, “You know Jimmy, I believe if everybody had guns, there would be fewer guns in the stores.” Truer words have never been spoken.
Another highlight from the interview came when Lipton asked Fey’s impression of Palin what she thinks of same sex marriage. “Well, the Bible says it’s gross,” she answers. “And I don’t judge it. A lot of the amazing, wonderful people I met in the audience at ‘Dancing With the Stars’ seem to go that way, but no. Marriage is meant for people who wear different kinds of swimsuits.”
