Tina Fey is back with yet another quite funny Sarah Palin impersonation. Poking fun at the former governor and vice presidential nominee, Tina Fey addresses everything from style to gun control to same-sex marraige.
"Marriage is meant for people who wear different kinds of bathing suits," she says as Palin.
Fey attracted a large audience impersonating Palin during the 2008 presidential election.

After Sunday’s episode of The History Channel’s new mini series “The Bible,” social media was launched into a full on frenzy including trending topics such as #ObamaIsNotSatan, which trended on Monday.
Was the History Channel’s Satan modeled on Obama? ti.me/136o60m (via @timeculture)

@ginaphillipssnn The actor playing Satan has an eerily uncanny resemblance to President Obama; yikes.

But, the show started gaining attention even before the episode aired when conservative commentator Glen Beck took notice of the Obama look-a-like, actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni. He made sure to contribute to social media controversy, though, tweeting this, early Sunday morning:
Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on HIstory Channel looks exactly like That Guy? twitter.com/glennbeck/stat…

The History Channel along with the show’s executive producers, Mike Burnett and Roma Downey, were quick to respond.
“History Channel has the highest respect for President Obama," they said in a joint statement. "The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. It's unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. History’s The Bible is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history.”
The two producers also replied, “This is utter nonsense, the actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouzaani, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several biblical epics -- including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our president."

Secretary of State John Kerry apparently wasn't too impressed with former NBA player Dennis Rodman's diplomacy skills this week. Kerry became one of many critics after Rodman stuttered and stumbled his way around defending Korean Leader Kim Jun Un in an ABC interview with George Stephanopoulous.
"Dennis Rodman was a great basketball player, and as a diplomat, he was a great basketball player. And that's where we'll leave it," said Kerry on MSNBC.
Rodman responded to the many bouts of criticism and attempted to downplay the trip by saying he was never sent as a diplomat. That, however, didn't stop him from offering words of advice to the president, saying that President Obama should give the Korean leader a call.
"He loves basketball," Rodman said of Kim on ABC. "Obama loves basketball. Let's start there."
