Funny lady Tina Fey graces the cover of Vogue‘s March ‘power issue’

Tina Fey won over most of us with her hilarious impersonation of former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin during the 2009 Presidential election, but she knows not everyone was a fan. “There are people who hate me now because of that,” she says. “People started projecting politics onto me.”

Tina doesn’t understand how people can take such a strong political stance — and she doesn’t understand the big deal about her comical Sarah Palin rant. “The partisan nature of politics continues to appall me,” she admits to Vogue. “I’m almost paralyzed by my inability to see things in black and white … I felt uncomfortable to be in that discussion. The weird thing is, when Darrell Hammond or Will Ferrell or Dana Carvey did an impersonation of a president, no one assumed it was personal, but because Sarah Palin and I are both women and people think women are meaner to each other, everyone assumed it was personal.”

The 30 Rock starlet and Vogue‘s March cover girl believes that she’s accessible to the modern everyday woman. “I feel like I represent normalcy in some way,” she tells Vogue. “What are your choices today in entertainment? People either represent youth, power, or sexuality. And then there’s me, carrying normalcy … me and Rachel Ray.”

As for this newly crowned Vogue lady she doesn’t believe fashion magazines are sending a bad message to younger girls. “We’re also the fattest country in the world, so it’s not like we’re all looking at fashion magazines and not eating,” she says. “Maybe it just starts a shame cycle: I’m never going to look like that model, so … Chicken McNuggets it it! And conversely, I don’t look at models who are crazy skinny and think I want to look like that, because a lot of them are gigantic, with giant hands and giant feet.”
