Paging Tina Fey: SNL Needs You!

Paging Tina Fey: <I>SNL Needs You</I>! Dear Ms. Fey,

I know you are all busy casting guest stars like crazy for 30 Rock (though we sincerely wish you'd quit it for a while) and yeah, it's probably gonna take you hours to get ready to meet Oprah (what will you wear?!), but still, could you spare some time to help out an old friend?

Lorne and co. over at Saturday Night Live are busy trying to figure out who they should get to play Sarah Palin, and the first person that popped into my head was you. (And I know I'm not alone in thinking this.) You've got just the right look, and with all your experience on the show, you could freakin' nail this Veep wannabe. Admittedly, this picture only served to cement this image in our minds. You wouldn't even need to spend hours in makeup, you could just run over after you finish your day job, pick up a hunting rifle, grab a baby doll and go to work.

This isn't to diss the skills of any of the lovely ladies currently on SNL. Cute little Casey Wilson or biting Kristen Wiig will probably do a fine job, but it just won't be the same as you. Plus, we've been burned by the whole SNL seeking out the right candidate to play a candidate already once this year (coughcoughFred ArmisenasObamacoughcough) and we don't want to see them make the same mistake twice.

So give it some thought, OK? Know it would be a lot to juggle, and we don't want 30 Rock to suffer, but we'd also like to see SNL be good during an election year and you'd be perfect for this ticket. I'll even promise not to be all pre-judgy about the Gossip Girl girls being on your show in return. Seems like a good deal, right?

Thanks for listening,
Angel Cohn Secretary of the Tina Fey for Phony Vice President in 2008 Foundation
