(Newser) – Should Tina Fey take it easy on Sarah Palin? She doesn't think so, Access Hollywood reports. "I stand by the pieces as both fair and quite gentle," says Fey, who plays the veep nominee on SNL. At first Fey "didn’t think we looked alike at all," but now she's on board. "We glue my ears down," she says. "That’s one of the tricks.”

“I’ll tell you, that lady is five times better looking than I am,” Fey says. “She’s 44? She’s got none of that droopy s***. She’s keeping it tight!”
