Tina Fey thanks Sarah Palin for top comedy award
Tina Fey is the youngest (and the third woman) to win of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
A mustached Alec Baldwin playing Twain said he thought he would be remembered for being a tender lover and was surprised to learn the prize honors top comics.
"Tina, well that's a funny name for a man," he said, shocked to hear it was a woman who had won because "their brains aren't shaped right."
A hundred years after the author's death, the woman famous for her Emmy Award-winning impression of Sarah Palin on "Saturday Night Live," accepted the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor – even though she feels her style is "so typically Austrian."
She thanked Palin for her success and said she has it on good authority that Sen. John McCain has a picture of Fey in his office and had been getting ideas long before he picked the former Alaska governor as his running mate.
