Liz Lemon, I'm Starting To Like You Again.

I was walking around at work while someone was streaming the latest episode of 30 Rock (Season 3, Episode 5 "Reunion). I saw the following:

I know that everything on that show comes from Tina Fey, so this gave my heart a little jump. I don't know what to say, which is quite a shock in itself. I watched Tina get interviewed by Barbara Walters and I truly got the impression that she didn't intend to come across as hateful toward Sarah Palin. I still believe that she doesn't really know when to shut up about expressing her personal feelings about social issues, but this clip at least lets me know that she doesn't think that people should listen to actors about how to live their lives. I'm hoping that's what she's saying.

I don't go out of my way to find stories or clips about actors (or other Celebritards) that are pushing their views on their fans and the public in general, so when I see something, I look at it as a tip of the iceberg kind of thing. That's why I react strongly when I see anything. I know that there are a lot more things out there that I'm not seeing.

I take this clip as a gesture of good will from Tina Fey, so I think I'm ready to give her another shot.
