Cherchez la Fey

Okay, so we’ve all done the Sarah Palin/Tina Fey double-take. But, you know, in passing. And, upon scrutiny, we’ve realized the mistake. Since the ladies look similar, after all, not identical.

But our francophone neighbors to the north may be a little less discerning in their differentiation (it’s not their potential Heartbeat Away, after all). Which may explain why the following picture of “Palin” made its way into an article about Palin Anxiety printed in a Quebecois paper, Le Soleil, with apparently no irony intended. Quebec City’s 93.3 news radio station made the catch.


Oh, wait, it’s Quebec. I mean, “Wow. AND: Zut alors.”
