Tina Fey: If Palin Wins in November, ‘I’m Leaving Earth’

When we first heard that Sarah Palin might go on Saturday Night Live, we weren’t sure if it would really happen because it seems like the gang that’s been spoofing her so pricelessly this season (Tina Fey most of all) really actually loathes her. Well, as many of our commenters pointed out, even if they do hate her, Palin would be ratings gold. So Palin will go on this weekend and we will all find our own ways to laugh about it.

But today we learned two things — one, several political experts think that Fey’s biting impressions of the Alaska governor probably took a very real political toll on the Republican ticket. And two, we learned that Tina Fey, as we suspected, totally does loathe Palin. “That lady is a media star. She is a fascinating person, she’s very likable. She’s fun to play,” Fey told TV Guide. As for whether she’ll keep playing the role, she might until November. “If she wins, I’m done. I can’t do that for four years,” she said. “And by ‘I’m done,’ I mean I’m leaving Earth.”

Wait, is there a spaceship leaving Earth in November? And will Tina Fey be the onboard entertainment?? Where do we get tickets?!
