Tina Fey wins Mark Twain Award

Haha, I read this article that my family's trusted source of non-partisanship, the Public Broadcasting System channel (PBS) -- has censored some of comedienne Tina Fey's acceptance speech. Past winners of "The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for Humor"  include Ms. Frizzle's voice actress Lily Tomlin, Bill Cosby, Steve Martin, George Carlin, Whoopi Goldberg and others.

"I would be a liar and an idiot if I didn't thank Sarah Palin for helping get me here tonight," Fey said. "My partial resemblance and her crazy voice are the two luckiest things that ever happened to me."

Regrettably, I cannot find the COMPLETE speech -- and am studying for American Presidency in the Library cafe, so I would prefer not to have my sound on to watch this video at this very moment.

Watch the full episode. See more Mark Twain Prize.

(See approximately 12:30)

The part that was cut, and thereby my Quote of the Day:

"Politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women—except, of course, those who will end up 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."

Thanks for posting the video! I love Tina Fey (and her dress was super-cute).
