When Oprah saw Governor Palin on television for the first time, she says she immediately thought of Tina. "The moment she came out, she'd not spoken 10 words, and I went, 'Oh my God. She's Tina Fey!'" Oprah says.
At first, Tina says she tried to argue her way out of portraying Governor Palin, but even her husband, composer Jeff Richmond, saw the similarities. "My husband was like, 'No, you have to admit it. You guys really do look alike,'" she says.
Tina says her 3-year-old daughter is particularly perplexed. "You can show her the New York Post with Sarah Palin, and she'll be like, 'That's Mommy,'" Tina says. "She's still confused about it."
