Tina Fey Crush

I have a girl crush on Tina Fey. She is a writer,comedian, and producer worthy of note! She wrote for and starred in Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. Saturday Night Live will not be the same without her. The female characters tend to be flat and superficial now that she is gone. How many female poptarts can you impersonate before it becomes dull? There are so many successful, powerful women out there who need satire:
Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo ,Brenda Barnes, Sara Lee ,Anne Mulcahy, Xerox ,Andrea Jung, Avon ,Meg Whitman, eBay ,Oprah Winfrey, Harpo Inc. ,Pat Woertz, ADM ,Sallie Krawcheck, Citigroup ,Irene Rosenfeld, Kraft Foods , and Susan Arnold, P&G
Other good fodder:
Female sports celebs like Gabby Riese and Mia Hamm.
What about foreign women who are making a name for themselves like Michelle Bachelet, President of Chile? We all know that satire is the root of notariaty and celebrity. Clinton was made fun of frequently in the comedy circles and it endeared him to the public.
30 Rock rocks! Her character has the perfect mix of vulnerability and smarts. Her character can't keep her apartment tidy or eat neatly, but she can manage a team of writers and actors! I hope that Alec Baldwin doesn't screw up her show again next season with his personal life feuds.
