Sarah Palin Hits Back at Tina Fey's 'SNL' Spoofing With a Parody of Her Own

Sarah Palin has turned the tables on Tina Fey, who reprised her infamous "Saturday Night Live" role as the former Alaska governor over the weekend, with a parody of the comedian's show "30 Rock."

The video, posted on the conservative site Independent Journal Review, is titled "31 Rock" and features Palin as Lynn Melon, a takeoff on Fey's Liz Lemon character from NBC's "30 Rock." The clip also features cameos from Sen. John McCain, who tapped Palin to run on his ticket in the 2008 election, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who this week announces he was pulling out of the 2016 race.

"The former Alaska governor and VP candidate is turning the tables on her doppelganger courtesy of a mildly amusing '30 Rock' parody produced by the right-leaning Independent Journal," TV Line's Michael Ausiello wrote.

The video on YouTube has garnered more than 302,000 views since Monday. It also features actual "30 Rock" actor Kevin Brown, according to USA Today.

"The parody promo was supposed to be a response to the ('Saturday Night Live') sketch on Saturday, which mostly spoofed Democrat Hillary Clinton, who gets 'advice' on her 2015 campaign for president from Fey as Palin and Amy Poehler as Clinton in 2008," the newspaper's Maria Puente wrote.



Some delighted in the parody.

"Sarah Palin gave Tina Fey a taste of her own medicine Monday, starring in a parody video where she turned the tables on the famous actress by spoofing her," TheBlaze's Oliver Darcy wrote. "The '31 Rock' trailer comes just days after Republican hopeful Ted Cruz released a Christmas parody infomercial that aired in select Iowa markets during 'SNL.'"

But others, like New York magazine's Margaret Hartman, were not quite as impressed.

"Over the weekend Tina Fey revived her celebrated Sarah Palin impression on 'SNL,' and on Monday the former Alaska governor finally got her back . . . with a weird parody of Fey's old sitcom that doesn't really make sense," Hartman wrote.

The reaction on social media was mixed.
