On MSNBC this afternoon, McCain adviser Carly Fiorina decried Tina Fey’s portrayal of Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live as “sexist.” “I think she looked a bit like her — I think of course the portrait was very dismissive of the substance of Sarah Palin,” Fiorina argued, calling it “totally superficial,” “disrespectful in the extreme,” and “sexist.” Watch it:

Palin doesn’t appear to share Fiorina’s complaints, however:

According to her spokesperson Tracey Schmitt, the real Sarah Palin had a good laugh along with the press corps in the back of the plane and millions of Americans at home.

She thought it was quite funny, particularly because she once dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween,” Schmitt said.
