Tina Fey Does Sarah Palin At Ad Council Dinner (VIDEO)
While hosting the Ad Council Annual Dinner Wednesday night,
"30 Rock" creator Tina Fey brought back her famous impersonation of
former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
"Mrs. Palin and I continue to
have so much in common," she said. "They recently made a porn movie
about Sarah and then this same porn actress, Lisa Ann, played me in a parody of
'30 Rock' ... And weirdly of the three of us, Lisa Ann knows the most about
Palin Booed By Book Tour Crowd
Unhappy fans of Sarah Palin went
rogue on the Alaska Republican during her book tour stop in Noblesville,
Indiana on Thursday.
The local Borders outlet had handed out 1,000 wristbands to
book purchasers; the wristbands were supposed to procure fans Palin's signature on their hardback copies of "Going
Rogue." But several dozen people who had been promised signatures were
turned away empty-handed after waiting hours in poor weather, a local news
outlet, the Indy Channel, reported.
"We gave up our entire workday, stayed in the cold, my
kids were crying," one man was quoted saying. "They went home with my
wife. She was out here in the freezing cold all day. I feel like I don't want
to support Sarah."

Sen. Wyden wins big
Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate
Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) have taken a long stride toward
locking down the support of Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.).
The three senators announced an agreement Friday on an
amendment that would allow many more people who get health insurance at work to
opt out and instead purchase coverage on the new health insurance exchanges the
bill would create.
Sarah Palin Plastic Surgery — Did She or Didn't She?
Is Botox part of her stimulus
Sarah Palin is promoting much more
than her new best seller book, Going Rogue. This week,
ladies — take a look at her refreshed new face. At age 45, Sarah could
easily be mistaken for a very young 35. Could this be due to better rest
— no more John McCain! — or one or more
procedures she's had done since giving up her governorship?
You betcha — so say several
skin care docs. Though not extensive, Sarah, like many busy women over 40, may
have gone for some less, non-invasive practices.
"Sarah might have had Botox around
and in-between her eyes, forehead, lower third of her face, and the neck," says
Dr. Neil Sadick, Medical Advisor for Christian Dior Beauty.
He also suggests that Sarah could have used a simple laser, such as Fraxel or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) "to change skin color
and make the surface more even."
"She probably had Botox to her
crows feet, frown lines, and possibly brows as well, " agrees Dr. Steven
Pearlman, past president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and
Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). "She went to someone good who is very skilled
in Botox. She looks very natural, but without lines,
and maintains a bit of movement when she is making expressions, unlike half of
The only area that Sarah still needs to focus on a little
bit more is her neck. Says Dr.
Pearlman: "She has platysmal banding [horizontal
lines in the skin on the neck], something that happens with age, so she should
have her neck done too." This last
minor ajustment should totally help Sarah maintain
the prior beauty pageant glamour.

Galileo's Lost Tooth,
Fingers Found By Italian Collector
Two fingers and a tooth removed from Galileo Galilei's corpse in a Florentine basilica in the 18th
century and given up for lost have been found again and will soon be put on
display, an Italian museum director said Friday.
Three fingers, a vertebra and a tooth were removed from the
astronomer's body by admirers in 1737, 95 years after his death, as his corpse
was being moved from a storage place to a monumental tomb – opposite that
of Michelangelo, in Santa Croce Basilica in Florence.
One of the fingers was recovered soon afterward and is now
part of the collection of the Museum of the History of Science, in Florence.
The vertebra has been kept at the University of Padua, where Galileo taught for
But the tooth and two fingers from the scientist's right
hand – the thumb and middle finger – were kept by one of the
admirers, an Italian marquis, and later enclosed in a container that was passed
on from generation to generation in the same family.
