Tina Fey was just awarded the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize for American Humor this week. The televised version of her acceptance speech was edited, and what was cut out? Jokes about former Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin. We wouldn’t want you to miss a word of her hilarious speech, so here’s the edited-out part!
“Politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women—except, of course, those who will end up paying for their own rape kit and stuff. But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years. Whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know—actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.”
The Mark Twain Prize recognizes people who have had an impact on American society in ways similar to Mark Twain, the distinguished 19th century novelist and essayist.
