WASHINGTON – Comedian Tina Fey says she’s checking out if her spitting image twin, Republican vice-presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, and White House contender John McCain win the general election next month.

Fey said she has loved playing Palin in the Saturday Night Live skits so far, especially with Amy Poehler who played Sen. Hillary Clinton in one and CBS News anchor Katie Couric in another.rtx8stl.jpg

“That lady is a media star.  She is a fascinating person, she’s very likeable.  She’s fun to play, and the two bits with Amy, that was super fun,” Fey told TV Guide. 

But a long-term gig isn’t in the cards.

“We’re gonna take it week by week. If she wins, I’m done,” she said. “I can’t do that for four years. And by ‘I’m done,’ I mean I’m leaving Earth.”

Fey has been hailed for her impressions of Palin, mocking in great detail her difficulties with media interviews and her lack of international experience.
