Fey's Swipe at Palin Cut From PBS

Fey's Swipe at Palin Cut From PBS


A joke was cut from the broadcast of last week's Mark Twain Awards, in which writer-producer-actress Tina Fey received comedy's top honor.

"The success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women," Fey originally said in her acceptance speech, "except, of course, those who will end up paying for their own rape kits and 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."

PBS, which broadcast the annual event, said it cut that part of her speech because the ceremony ran long, according to Time.
