Sarah Palin on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Last Night
She also did a stand up routine as seen in the second video above.
Following is the transcript of Sarah Pailn's monologue jokes during her comedy debut on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," March 2, 2010:
Hello. Thank you, Jay. Thank you. I'm so happy to get to be here. This is a thrill of a lifetime really. And Alaska, being so different from Los Angeles. Here when people have a frozen look on their face, I find out it's Botox.
It is so beautiful here, though, so warm and beautiful. Back home, ooh, it was freezing. It was 5 degrees below Congress' approval rating.
Shaun White on the show. Oh, what an amazing athlete. I watched him do a double McTwist 1260, and the only other people to do a double McTwist 1260 was last week: the White House on healthcare."
It's great to be on the same show as Shaun White. Last time I was this close to the Flying Tomato was when someone threw one at me at a book signing.
I watched the Winter Olympics: skiing, fighting on the ice, skating, bob sledding. In Alaska, that's our morning commute.
How about that amazing closing ceremony. It was beautiful. The minute I saw the giant moose, I remembered I hadn't cooked anything for the kids' dinner.
And that's because I've been really busy. I picked up a gig in Las Vegas at the Legends show, playing Tina Fey.
And next I get to headline. I'll be the speaker at the NRA convention. So be there, or else.
The truth is though I'm glad I'm not vice president. I'm glad because I would not know what to do with all that free time.
But Jay, thank you so much for inviting me. I saw where it's been a few weeks of unfair, non-stop criticism, people who don't know the real story. And I just say, Jay, welcome to my world."
LMAO on the other network Lettermen had Mitt Romney on his show. This will make you laugh.
“Now what about that Sarah Palin," says Letterman, who had to apologize for an off-color joke about the former Alaskan governor's daughter last year. "She’s not ready to be president, is she?” (LOUD groans from audience)
“She’s terrific,” Romney rapidly replies to derisive audience laughter. “She really is! She’s terrific. She’s got energy, passion – by the way, you know, be careful what you say about her.”
Letterman says he knows.
Romney adds with a smile, “She has a rifle, you know.” (Audience laughs)
Wild Thing's comment.......
Sarah was FABULOUS! Even did her own comedy routine which was hysterical! At one point she said "Oh, I like to get the Left all wee-wee'd up." LOL
Loved Palin saying the temps in Alaska are 5 degrees less thaan congresses approval rating! Ha!
I think Sarah was having a lot of fun...and rightfully so.
Leno treated her great. And of course Letterman is the jerk.

Letterman is an asshole, but from what I saw of it on YouTube, Mitt Romney handled himself--and Letterman--well.

Sarah Palin a leader waiting in the wings for the right moment and her time is coming. What a great change that will be a Leader, President who actually respects the people she works for. Unlike the current occupant of the white house Sarah Palin knows the difference between the truth and a lie.

Sarah Palin is not ready to be President yet.
The keyword is yet.
She was plucked out of obscurity by a faltering RINO McCain campaign, then thrown to the lib media wolves by the campaign. When she returned to govern Alaska, she was subject to endless nuisance lawsuits she could not stop.
So she took to the book and lecture circut, and is now campaigning for other Real Republicans. She is also building up her warchest and "Accounts Receivable" of political favors, and is getting more and more comfortable taking on a hostile media.
She is still *very* young in political terms, and while I don't think she will be ready by 2012, and might even be better as an Alaska Senator, she has a promising future.

I enjoyed the audience reaction to Sarah Palin. Usually those talk show crowds are lukewarm at best to conservatives. And the conservatives are usually very guarded in their comments. Not Sarah. She is so average America.
I do think she will be ready for a run in 2012. No doubt with appearances like the Leno gig Sarah is prepping for public appearances to more than just political rallies. She is conditioning hersself to face potentially hostile crowds. The Leno appearance shows though that she already has widespread appeal and support.

Mind you, Leno attracts a different audience than does Letterman. Jay Leno himself may be a closet conservative, judging by some interviews with him I have read.
Again, I do wish Sarah well and I was enraged at the libmedia smears of her.

Oh prey tell curmudgen what will be the key signs that will give her the go ahead that she is ready to run in 2012. I don't think anybody is really ready for that job. Was Truman ready in April 45, or Johnson in '63 or Rockefeller after Nixon resigned. Was Kennedy ready, had it not been for his Daddy, he'd still be in the Senate.
If experience counted she has much more experience than obama ever will have even now she ranks him.
I sure as hell ain't voting for Romney or Huckabee, they may be considered "highly qualified" but they are not conservatives. Sarah Palin is.
She's ready now, for sure.

What the hell, my votes going for Agnew.

"Oh prey tell curmudgen what will be the key signs that will give her the go ahead that she is ready to run in 2012."
One good sign will be when she can face down a cretin like Letterman or Katie Couric (as the "South Park" cartoon stated, one Couric is 2.2 pounds of excrement) and grind them into dust.
Again, I like her, but let's see who the other '12 contenders are first. I am betting the nominee will be someone we don't know too much about yet. The Congressional elections of November 2010 have to come first. Hopefully in November a Great Upchuck will occur that will make the Great Upchuck of 1994, where many poisonous Commiecrats were vomited out of the body politic, look like a minor burp.
I'm honestly not sure who is running in 2012, but I know Huck is out, and thank goodness. Mitt wants it, but Mitt is a technocrat and an administrator, not a leader. He would make a good Cabinet member, and he was awesome by Commiechussetts standards, but I know that's not saying much.
I voted for Mitt in the '08 primaries as a desperate attempt to stave off Juan McAmnesty McClimatefraud McLame, and because skeleton after skeleton was falling out of Rudy Giuliani's closet, and because Huckabee was proving to be a nanny-statist, and because Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo had dropped out by the time the vote got to me (Tancredo endorsing Romney, in fact).
