Factoid of the Day (October 19, 2008)
It struck me late last night that Tina Fey's version of Gov. Palin has now give more press conferences than the real Gov. Palin...
And while, I thought it was a funny line, the real Gov. Palin's "complaint" to Lorne Michaels that "I just don't think it's a realistic depiction of the way my press conferences would have gone" is actually far more revealing that humorous. First, note the use of the word "would". Second, if she doesn't think (even in a comedic setting) that Fey's version of a press conference was realistic, Gov. Palin could easily counter that depiction by simply giving her own press conference. Even Joe the Plumber has given more press conferences that Gov. Palin.
