Tracy Morgan is impressed with Tina Fey's Sarah Palin impersonation – and says her skits are not only funny, but also influential.

"I think her impression of Sarah may decide who's going to be president of the United States," Morgan, who costars with Fey on 30 Rock, told reporters at a taping for VH1's Hip Hop Honors on Thursday night. "Tina Fey's Sarah Palin was on the money."

Morgan, "of course," recorded Palin's debate with Senator Joe Biden, but was crystal clear about what comes first: "Debates don't come before hip-hop," he quipped. (The VH1 Hip Hop Honors show will air on VH1 Monday, Oct. 6, and be hosted by Morgan.)

Morgan also expressed excitement over one of 30 Rock's most impressive upcoming guest stars: "We got Oprah on the show! Oprah don't do nobody else's sitcom," he said.

As for what he'll say to the billionaire media mogul when he sees her? "What's up? I need some money," he joked. "Bail me out."
