WASHINGTON-- Mark Twain dropped by Kennedy Center Tuesday night to honor Tina Fey with the nation's top humor prize that bears his name.
A mustached Alec Baldwin playing the American author said he thought he would be remembered for being a tender lover and was surprised to learn the prize honors top comics.
He said he was shocked to hear it was a woman who had won because "their brains aren't shaped right."
A hundred years after the author's death, the woman famous for her Emmy Award-winning impression of Sarah Palin on the TV comedy "Saturday Night Live," accepted the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. She thanked Palin for her success. AP

But is it MJ?
LOS ANGELES--The first single from a posthumous Michael Jackson album was released online Monday -- but was immediately clouded by questions over whether it was really the late star's voice.
Record label Epic Records issued a statement saying it was confident the album including the single, "Breaking News" was indeed Jackson singing, after fans and La Toya Jackson questioned its authenticity.
"We have complete confidence in the results of our extensive research as well as the accounts of those who were in the studio with Michael that the vocals on the new album are his own," said Epic, in a statement cited by James Bates, spokesman for Jackson's estate. AFP
