Poor Tina Fey, She's Already Sick of Impersonating Sarah Palin

By Robert Paul Reyes

"She was more open about her thoughts on reprising the "SNL" role. As in, she`d prefer not to.

`I want to be done playing this lady Nov. 5,` she said. `So if anybody can help me be done playing this lady Nov. 5, that would be good for me.`"

(Tina Fey on impersonating Sarah Palin)

Tina Fey`s impersonation of Sarah Palin is spot on, but it must take a terrible toll on the talented comedienne to channel the vapid Republican VP candidate. It`s too much to ask an actress to portray Palin on a regular basis, SNL should have a rotating crew of Palin impersonators. There is a whole slew of Palin impersonators in cyberspace, the producers of SNL should check out YouTube.

John McCain has done a tremendous disservice to his party and to the country by choosing Palin as his VP. He should be forced to don high heels, a wig and hit the drag queen circuit impersonating Palin.

No doubt the producers of SNL will pressure Fey to reprise her Palin impersonation a few more times before the election. Let`s help Fey out by voting for Obama/Biden so that at least there won`t be a demand to impersonate Palin after the election.

I`m doing my part to preserve Fey`s sanity by voting for Barack Obama.
