Former vice-presidential candidate finally gets her own back on 'Sisters' star
Sarah Palin has finally got her revenge on comedian Tina Fey in a spoof trailer of her hit sitcom 30 Rock.
In the clip entitled 31 Rock, which you can watch below, the former vice-presidential candidate mocks Fey’s character Liz Lemon through Lyn Melon, a scatty writer dealing with her dysfunctional colleagues.
Fey’s parody of Palin was one of the highlights of the 2008 presidential campaign as the comic dressed up to mimic the vice-presidential candidate each week on Saturday Night Live.
Elsewhere, there’s also a cameo from 30 Rock actor Kevin Brown, Palin’s former running mate John McCain who appears in the Alec Baldwin role, and Republican senator Lindsay Graham.
The video comically promotes Palin’s new book, Sweet Freedom: A Devotional, which is jokingly described by Brown in the video as “politics aside, a great reminder of the pressures of PC culture”.
Fey meanwhile recently revisited her Palin character on Saturday Night Live last week, offering campaign trail advice to a pair of Hillary Clintons played by Amy Poehler and Kate McKinnon.
Fey and Poehler are promoting new film Sisters and appeared on the US comedy show alongside musical guest Bruce Springsteen. Among their sketches was ‘Dope Squad’, a parody of Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ video and its array of guest stars.
Sisters, which is out now, sees the pair play siblings who return home when their parents decide to sell their family house.
Fey served as one of the film’s producers alongside Meet The Parents director Jay Roach and Austin Powers producer John S. Lyons, while Poehler is credited as an executive producer.
