Last week Tina Fey was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. In her acceptance speech she said this:
I would be a liar and an idiot if I didn’t thank Sarah Palin for helping get me here tonight. My partial resemblance and her crazy voice are the two luckiest things that ever happened to me.
And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women [applause before the joke kicks in] — except, of course, those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape kit and stuff.
But for everybody else, it’s a win-win — unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years — whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us — unless you believe in evolution. You know — actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.
All kidding aside, I’m so proud to represent American humor, I am proud to be an American, and I am proud to make my home in the ‘not real’ America. And I am most proud that during trying times, like an orange [terror] alert, a bad economy or a contentious election, that we as a nation retain our sense of humor.
Tina Fey repeated the zombie lie about how Sarah Palin supposedly wanted sexual assault victims to pay for their own rape kits. As you can see from the video above that portion of Fey’s acceptance speech was edited out by PBS, along with a couple other slams at Palin and conservative women.
