Tina Fey’s Presidential Campaign
According to Fox News, Tina Fey is 50/50 on running for President in 2012. I know, the screen says Sarah Palin. But, if you look really closely, you’ll see that’s NOT Ms. Palin!!!

The conservative-leaning cable news channel ended up with egg on its face while covering Sarah Palin‘s heavily hyped One Nation bus tour when it aired a picture of 30 Rock star Tina Fey impersonating the governor instead of the real thing.
The oops, first caught by Mediaite, can be seen briefly in a clip from Fox News’ America’s Election Headquarters debating whether Palin will be a Republican presidential contender. During the segment, producers featured a graphic of the funny lady reprising her dead-on imitation of Palin for a Saturday Night Live sketch.
After word of the news fail leaked out, David Clark, Fox News’ executive producer of weekend programming, issued an immediate mea culpa.
“This past Sunday during America’s News Headquarters, a graphics error was made during a segment on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin,” Clark said in a statement. “The producer has since been disciplined and an explanation and apology will be made in the same hour next Sunday. Fox News regrets the error.”
