Sarah Palin Turns the Tables, Spoofs Tina Fey in '30 Rock' Parody

Yes, you read that correctly.

Last weekend, Tina Fey reprised her iconic role (opens in new tab) as Sarah Palin on SNL. Her spot-on high-pitched Alaskan accent and gobbledygook excuse for political commentary got just as many laughs as it did throughout her reign on the show during the 2008 election. So it seems appropriate that Sarah Palin would finally hit back with her own impression of Tina Fey in a 30 Rock parody called "31 Rock." The imitation becomes the imitator. 

Produced by conservative website Independent Journal (opens in new tab), "31 Rock" stars Sarah Palin as "Lynn Melon," a TV writer who wears really baggy hoodies and complains about food while trying to keep a show together. It's not really funny in any world (except perhaps the alien planet from which Palin hails) because well, timing, but it's insanely entertaining to watch for the cameos of Lindsey Graham as Kenneth the page, John McCain as Jack Donaghy, and Kevin Brown reprising his old role as Dot Com. 

That's what we get for turning politicians into celebrities.
