Tina Fey has problems correctly using a credit card (twice)

For someone who has made a career of getting people to think that conservatives like Sarah Palin are dumb, it is clear from these pictures that Ms. Fey has trouble knowing how to correctly swipe a credit card.  (Click on screen shots to enlarge.)  The first picture shows her swiping the card and the second is a close up of how she apparently believes the card should be swiped.  Indeed. Ms. Fey appears to a slow learner as the American Express ad shows her twice swiping the credit card the same way.

Now I realize that Tina Fey was possibly just swiping the card the way that the producer wanted her to swipe it, but for someone who convinced Americans that Palin had actually said that she could see Russia from her house, there is some justice in this.

There are fewer interest charges on the card when you do it Tina's way. Of course, the stores don't let you walk out with the merchandise, either.

Literally every credit card commercial in existence does this.

Dear Levi:
I tried looking at some other credit card commercials, but I couldn't find even one that showed a card being swiped incorrectly. If "every credit card commercial in existence does this," it should be extremely easy for you to give ma a screen shot of that. I know that not every commercial does this. I would be interested in seeing whether any other ones have the card being used incorrectly.

Here's a blog post ranting about the improper usage (with two other examples).
