Michelle Malkin: Tina Fey recycles Palin rape kit lie

That one was debunked two years ago
Is the left so lacking in actual arguments to use against Gov. Palin that is must continually recycle DNC talking points that have been completely debunked? Apparently so, reports Michelle Malkin, who catches Hollyweirdo Tina Fey going back to the poisoned well of "campaign lies spread by the Soros-supported Internet smear machine":
Last night, comedian/actress Tina Fey won a humor award for her Sarah Palin schtick and used her acceptance speech to indulge in a broader swipe at the conservative women’s revolution in politics.

Via Newsbusters:
Comedienne and actress Tina Fey on Tuesday thanked former Alaska governor Sarah Palin as she accepted this year’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

According to the Washington Post, she then mocked conservative women “first to nervous laughter and then to not much laughter at all”:

In her acceptance speech, Fey touched on her best-known bit — her Palin imitation –and offered some mock hands-across-the-political-divide commentary. The rise of conservative women in politics, she said pointedly, is good for all women, “unless you don’t want to pay for your own rape kit . . . unless you’re a lesbian who wants to get married to your partner of 20 years . . . [or] unless you believe in evolution.”

Maybe the joke bombed because the joke is on Fey.

The “rape kit” canard was totally dismantled two years ago...


Fey went on to say: “I would be a liar and an idiot if I didn’t thank Sarah Palin for helping me get here tonight. My partial resemblance and her crazy voice are the two luckiest things that have ever happened to me.”

Well, I certainly agree about the “liar” and “idiot” parts.
We love the “first to nervous laughter and then to not much laughter at all” description, especially coming as it does from the left-wing Washington Post. Perhaps Tina's tired old one-trick pony needs to be put out to pasture.
