Ain't Nothin' Wrong With This Broad

I love Tina Fey.

Tina Fey is smart and funny.  She's relatable, she's quirky, and she is talented.  I pretty much want to be Tina Fey.

Of all the performances Tina Fey has done in recent years, I would have to say that her character Liz Lemon on 30 Rock is absolutely, without a doubt, definitively, the best thing she has ever done.

Liz Lemon (a character loosely based on Tina Fey during her SNL years) is a neurotic, sodium-obsessed, driven, insecure, funny, awkward, and successful comedy writer and producer.  Insanely loveable (Liz once thought she was pregnant because her favorite fried cheese snack (Sabor de Soledad) upped her testosterone levels and altered her hormones, indicating on a home pregnancy test a positive result.  Apparently, Lemon's favorite snack got it's "special tangy flavor from evaporated bull semen." 

Her love life parallels many working single females, and her frustrations (once accidentally dating her cousin) are infinitely hilarious. 

Maybe I relate a little too much to Liz Lemon, and by correlation, Tina Fey, but I don't care.  If I had to choose a role model, it would be her.

I have only seen a bit of her work, but I do find her very funny and a great actress. I am hesitant to watch BABY MAMA though.

One of my favorite things about Liz Lemon is how she stayed with that schlub of a boyfriend just because he fed her philly cheesesteaks and all that great food. I can relate! I liked how the earlier seasons of 30 Rock depicted more of Liz's love life, but not quite feeling this current season. It's a little too ... wacky for me.

As a Republican who supports the McCain/Palin ticket, even I can appreciate a good laugh. Tina Rey does a super job impersonating Sarah Palin! Her accent and mannerisms are dead on!    However, I think the skit of Tina Fey as Sarah Palin and Amy Poehler as Hilary Clinton prior to this one was much funnier. Amy Poehler's constant and exaggerated blinking as Katie Couric was very distracting, drawn out, and not funny. Does Katie Couric even do that? In this skit, Tina Fey …
