Tina Fey's back and Sarah Palin never left
Earlier this fall Tina Fey, the actress who mimicked Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin so brilliantly, said she couldn't wait for the hockey mom to go away, presumably by the Republican presidential ticket losing the Nov. 4 election.
Palin and John McCain did, in fact, come in second that day.
But Palin, the losing vice presidential candidate, hasn't gone away. In fact, she's all over the place.
And it's the winning vice presidential candidate, Democrat Joe Biden, who seems to have disappeared.
Palin was all over Georgia today earning future political owsies by wowing conservative crowds behind incumbent GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss' runoff reelection bid tomorrow against Democrat Jim Martin.
And now, it turns out, it's Fey who's come back. Though losing her Palin schtick on "Saturday Night Live," Fey is on the current cover of "Vanity Fair" magazine dressed as a, uh, red-white-and-blue Uncle Sam-antha. (For a trip down memory lane to watch some of Fey's Palin video performances, click here.)
