It was announced recently that Tina Fey was voted the Associated Press Entertainer of the Year, an annual honor chosen by newspaper editors and broadcast producers across the country.

According to the AP members, she is the performer who had the greatest impact on culture and entertainment in 2008. You betcha.

In case you missed it entirely, it was Fey who most impressed voters because of her indelible impression of Gov. Sarah Palin on "Saturday Night Live" helped drive the show to record ratings and eventually drew an appearance from Palin herself.

"Tina Fey is such an obvious choice," said Sharon Eberson, entertainment editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "She gave us funny when we really needed it and, in a year when women in politics were making huge strides, Fey stood out in the world of entertainment."

The question remains who was the greatest comedienne, Tina Fey or Sarah Palin? That depends largely upon the opinion of the consumer.
