Tina Fey became the third woman awarded the coveted Mark Twain Prize for Humor this week, and followed up the honor with an acceptance speech proving that she deserves it.

This video captures all the best jokes Fey doled out at the Kennedy center among her family and peers, including jabs at the Tea Party and Alec Baldwin. But the most memorable part of her speech was definitely this heap of praise for Sarah Palin:

"I would be a liar and an idiot if I didn't thank Sarah Palin for helping get me here tonight. My partial resemblance and her crazy voice are the two luckiest things that ever happened to me."
