Another area of interest to me was Tina's discussion of what happened when she impersonated Sarah Palin on SNL and became a target of ill-founded wrath. Regrettably, it's always been easy to marshal cultural hostility toward women. Especially in politics, where double standards and misogyny tend to dominate the conversation. Those are my words, not Tina's. Anyway — it is something that, as Fey rightly points out, has never happened to Dan Aykroyd, Dana Carvey or many other men who do political satire.
poor janeane. as dumb as she is ugly.
and she's really ugly.
it's generally accepted wisdom that uma thurman is 1 of the nicest people in show business. so imagine what a dog you have to be to be mean to uma. but janeane was. she was a real bitch to uma when they made the truth about cats and dogs.
janeane was all upset because she thought she was a movie star and felt the script had been tailored (in rewrites) to uma. but uma's the only reason the studio wanted to make the movie.
it's not as though beefing up uma's part cost janeane any great scene.
but just having to share focus was too much for our lady of great whines.
now her career's over and she's doing a bad tv show where she's the worst performer on it. if you missed ava and c.i.'s review of it, go read 'TV: Seven Layer Bad' and realize janeane's career is over.
janeane's a dumb piece of trash who acts as though she wants to screw her father and we've all had to suffer as a result. sarah palin was not mocked in the way bush was mocked.
tina fey lifted up her skirt to play sarah palin. (if you missed it, ava and c.i. called it our repeatedly. start with 'Dowd to Fey: And when they met, it was murder (Ava and C.I.).') when did palin ever do that?
tina fey is a sexist. she's also highly homophobic and i'm really surprised that this season of 30 rock hasn't resulted in some glaad protests.
she's a sexist and a homophobe.
reading janeane's book report, i'm wondering why she even bothered.
1st she makes every other thought about herself and what she's done. 2nd, it's really not about the book. the quote above is the only time she's really commenting on the book.
are you getting why janeane has no career?
a chance to do a book review for npr. a chance to elevate her standing in the entertainment community. and she churns out something which makes the reviews in entertainment weekly look like dorothy parker's new yorker book reviews by comparison.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
