Fey has not gotten away with all those 'SNL' sketches.
The tables have turned on Tina Fey as Sarah Palin gets back at Fey's numerous 'SNL' impressions of her with an impersonation of Palin's own. Admittedly, Palin isn't looking at winning any sort of comedy award anytime soon, so it looks like Fey's job as herself is still pretty safe.
Sarah Palin tries her hand at comedy
For the Independent Journal Review, Republican politician and former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin parodied Tina Fey's NBC show '30 Rock' with a comedy of her own entitled '31 Rock'. In it she plays a character called Lynn Melon (as opposed to Fey's Liz Lemon), and it's her own quirky way of plugging her new book 'Sweet Freedom: A Devotional' which was released in November 2015 and advises readers of several Biblical verses that can help people through the stresses and anxieties of their day to day life. It's an unusual advertisement for such a seemingly serious self-help publication.

For those who haven't seen the original show, '30 Rock' follows sketch show writer Lemon as she struggles to navigate the various complexities surrounding the development of a comedy, parodying the show's own network NBC. It ran from 2006 to 2013, running for seven seasons before it finally ended with one of the most exceptional finales in television history.
Other appearances in the '31 Rock' show include those of politicians Lindsey Graham and John McCain, as well as actor Kevin Brown. The gag follows Tina Fey's return to 'Saturday Night Live' as a guest host where she once again portrayed a satirical version of Palin, alongside her 'Sisters' co-star (and comedy partner in crime) Amy Poehler who played Hillary Clinton.
Fey won the Associated Press' Entertainer of the Year award in 2008 following her first appearance as Palin, and so she went on to reprise the role numerous times during her 'SNL' career.
