Women Like Her

“And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women – except, of course —those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ 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.”  — Tina Fey.

PBS edited the above part out of Tina Fey’s acceptance speech during the Mark Twain Prizes.  For their part, PBS said it had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with the speech running long.  “We took a lot out,” says executive producer Peter Kaminsky. “[I]t was not a political decision. We had zero problems with anything she said.”  You can watch the unedited speech at PBS.org.
