Karl Erikson, writer of Fame Crawler, a blog about celebrity kids for Babble.com writes that even Tina Fey's 3 year old daughter, Alice, is confused by the striking similarity between the comedienne and the Governor. However, little Alice was spot on when told that Barack Obama is the new president. She said, "That's crazy!"
Tina Fey, who does a dead-on Sarah Palin impression but won't be doing them any more, says that her 3-year-old daughter Alice Zenobia is totally "confused" by her mother's resemblance to Palin. When Palin did Saturday Night Live on October 18, Alice was on the set. Tina was holding Alice while Governor Palin was on a monitor. Alice said, "I see you up there!"Alice is not alone in thinking that's crazy and the funniest thing we've ever heard. Unfortunately, the rest of us will pay for the comedy show near term and Alice will pay years from now.
38-year-old Tina replied, "No, I'm here with you." Lately, Tina says she's been testing her daughter with the newspaper. "I'll say, 'Who's that?' And she'll say 'Sarah Palin.' And then I'll show her my picture and say, 'Who's that?' She'll go 'Sarah Palin.' I'm like, 'No, that's mommy!' She looked at me and scowled, she was really mad when I corrected her."
When shown a picture of President-elect Barack Obama, Tina said, "His name is Barack Obama." Laughter burst out of Alice. "That's crazy!" she said. Tina says, "She thought that was the funniest thing she'd ever heard." It IS a pretty funny name.
Tina Fey and SNL were allowed to define Sarah Palin in every possible way. One rule of Saul Alinsky states "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense against comedy. Palin tried to join in the fun by appearing on SNL, but it was at her own expense and she lost.
