For Tracy Morgan, choosing between Tina Fey and her doppelganger political adversary, Sarah Palin, is no contest. The 30 Rock star hit below the belt on Inside the NBA while chatting it up with hosts Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith. Smith said he and Barkley have a long-running argument - Tina Fey or Sarah Palin? - and asked Morgan to settle it. Unfortunately, they set the comedian up for some controversy. Morgan went rogue, saying, "Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin-she's good masturbation material." The quip about the former Miss Wasilla sent TNT, the channel on which it aired, into damage control mode, condemning the comedian's comments immediately. "It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments," a TNT mouthpiece told USA Today. "We apologize for any embarrassment or offense it may have caused." We're guessing Morgan was first in line when the porn homage Nailin' Paylin was released.
