Tina Fey still has a bit of Sarah Palin in her

Tina Fey hasn't lost her touch.

The actress proved just how well she can still put on a solid Sarah Palin impersonation when she visited Bravo's "Inside the Actors Studio" this week.

At host James Lipton's request, Fey slipped into the familiar accent, responding to questions on same-sex marriage and being a woman in politics.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5H_KTyKUSG4?feature=player_embedded&w=450&h=360%5D

On the marriage equality issue, Fey-as-Palin responded, "Well, the Bible says it's gross. And I don't judge it - a lot of the amazing wonderful people I met in the audience at 'Dancing with the Stars' seem to go that way."

"But no," she continued. "Marriage is meant for people who wear different kinds of swimsuits."

And when it comes to gender politics in the political arena, "I don't think of it as a man's world, or a woman's world, unless again, we're talking about marriage," she said. "I think of it as people being mavericks, or not being mavericks."

The only time when Fey just barely broke character was when Lipton asked for her fashion and hairstyle advice. The actress gave an audible chuckle before responding, "Well, I'm a fan of the bump-it. Also [a] tan - a tan you couldn't possibly have in Alaska. And that's really all you need."

Before Palin had to leave the building, Lipton snuck in one last question: what does Palin think of Fey's impression of her?

"It's the best one I never watched," the "Admission" star deadpanned.

    • Huh!

      Yeah, you are right. Tina is no Sarah Palin. THANK GOD FOR THAT! Sarah Palin is the dumbest, most ridiculous woman that the right has glorified for several years. Let's see, what are her accomplishments? Not a vp, not a governor, not a tv personality, not a fox news contributor. Huh, I think that makes her unemployed, probably collecting unemployment, too. Now, there was one woman who knew how to work the system to her own benefit. Let's see, Tina Fey has a career, and a very profitable one at that. Grow up you Palin junkies. The woman needs to take her butt back to Alaska, and do all that helping of the state she said she was going to do, and leave the rest of us alone.

      She is a strong woman of conviction? Wow, how ignorant are you? The only thing Sarah Palin is all about is the money. If that's who you want to idolize, then you should take a hard look in the mirror. The woman is ignorant, a giant bag of gas, has no political clout, except for adoring people like you, doesn't even seem to be a good mother. I like how she did her little bus tour around the states with her family, on Sarah Pac money. Yeah, she knows how to work the system, doesn't she. She took a vacation on your dime. Look, if you want to idolize her, then fine. Just don't come here telling us how wonderful she is, when the truth is out there.

    Why do you feel the need to defend Fey? Everyone has the right to defend anyone they want. Fey and the others are ridiculing at another's expense, out of cruelty – and it's been done over and over and over again. Those who don't view Sarah Palin as you do are pretty damn tired of it. And on top of it – don't agree with your assessment of her at all – and never will.

    • Well, Freedom

      I'm not defending Tina Fey. I'm just pointing out what an idiot you are. Sarah Palin is an air head. She couldn't be vice president (thankfully) because the American people all saw how totally unqualified she was. She couldn't finish her job as governor, because "she could do more for the state by not staying in office". I wonder how the people who voted for her felt when she just dumped her job. She is a quitter, especially if there's no money in it for her. Her tv shows all went belly up, and she just got canned by Fox. I'd say that says failure all over it. Hey, love her if you want. Doesn't say much for you, though.

  31. Tea-Bag you, fool

    Tina Fey is a comedian, not a bully. Now your hero, Rush Limbaugh, with his constant negative name calling and race-baiting? That guy is a bully.

    It just occurred to me that every bully that I knew as a kid has grown up to be a social conservative Republican, and self-claimed Christian, without once repenting their past ways. Judging from what I see on Fox news and in congress, it would seem that all Republicans were bullies as children.

      Sarah Palin has absolutely no influence on anything. She's a unemployed Alaskan. What influence does she have? On what? The woman is an idiot, even the people in the McCain campaign said that., and that was their candidate. The reason we comment on her is because she just won't shut her uneducated yap, and go back to Alaska to never be heard from again. That's all we ask.

    Still doesn't address why Fey feels the need to impersonate her – she doesn't need the attention – has plenty of it. Just a hateful soul? Guess that could be it, too. Either way, Palin has more guts and grit than any wimp in the White House right now – and people like Fey just can't handle it – so they ridicule. Kind of like what bullies do – but we all know bullies are cowards – and have psychological issues.

      You conservatives are such a joke. Always defending that dipsh!t. The stupid woman couldn't even finish out her term as governor. Tina Fey was asked, if you bothered to even read the article, to throw some Palin out there. They did teach to read, right? It is not Tina's fault that she has so much material to work with. Palin is the dumbest woman out there, (maybe Michellle Bachman could give her a run for her money). Even Fox news got rid of her. Grow up, and put it back in your pants. The woman is a moron.
